Susan does not know where she stands with her undefined relationship with Mike, but things get complicated when she wakes up one morning to find that her ex-husband, Karl, had a sleepover with her arch-rival: the sluttish Edie Britt. Phyllis freely expresses her grief to anyone within range, totally upstaging a very annoyed Bree. Unfortunately, that's the least of Bree's problems when the police begin to investigate Rex's death, and George Williams returns wanting to re-start his relationship with Bree. Carlos is being exploited in prison and needs Gabrielle's help to deliver money to his violent cell mate's girlfriend. She accepts to help only if she gets access to his secret bank account. Lynette, unsatisfied with Tom's approach to stay-at-home parenting, does some cunning intervention involving a stray rat. The Applewhites' secrets are slowly revealed to their mysterious captive in the basement of the house and their continuing adjustments to keeping a low profile in Fairview. Written by
