"Desperate Housewives" A Weekend in the Country (TV Episode 2006) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • Bree and Orson are going on their honeymoon to Bermuda. But at the airport, Bree sees her runaway son, Andrew, on the public TV featured as a homeless teenager in which Bree wants to cut short their honeymoon to go look for him, against Orson's protests. After Bree unsuccessfully tries to get Andrew to return home, Orson later meets with the troublesome youth and, despite seeing the abrasive sociopath Andrew still is, persuades him to return home by relating to his inner rage and hostility. Meanwhile, Gabrielle and Lynette plan a weekend at a posh health spa while Tom is going on a camping trip with the wild and crazy kids. But Lynnette's quiet weekend is also cut short when Tom phones with an emergency and she has to go to him. But things turn for the worse when Nora arrives and insists that she tag along with Lynnette. At the spa, the lonely Gabrielle runs into her former flame, John Rowland, who's now a rising landscape designer, but regrets a one-stand with him in the morning when his fiancée shows up and nearly caches her. Susan goes on a quiet romantic getaway with Ian at a remote mountain cabin. But as usual for the klutzy Susan, things don't go as planned. Plus, she is still insecure about if she's cheating on Mike who's still comatose. Julie has another run-in with Austin McCann, whom she allegedly cannot stand but finds herself strangely attracted to as Edie notices.

  • Orson's perfectly planned, alas non-refundable honeymoon to Bermuda never gets out of the airport when Bree sees a TV program on homeless teenagers where Andrew exposes her as the worst possible mother, unbearable unlike just being that. While Danielle cares only for her own image, Orson is surprisingly supportive when told the truth about Andrew, who runs when Bree finally finds him in a soup-kitchen, badly bruised in the face. Orson passes by later, getting trough he's taking more suffering then he puts Bree trough... Lynette scolds Tom for not finding another job -after she lost his, again- and joins Gabrielle for a spa weekend, but taking the boys camping Tom's back gives way again. Norma whose car broke down insists to drive along, eight hours long, enough for furious fighting and some envious/manipulative confidences, which turn Lynette's mood... Gabrielle thus finds herself alone, and soon lonely- till she discovers John is there, now a highly successful gardening entrepreneur, and as her equal again eligible for bed gymnastics. Alas, it's her turn to be hidden hastily when his young fiancée turns up, hotel chain heiress Tammy Sinclair, in a suitcase and out of his (love-)life... Spending a weekend in his fancy, remote forest cabin, Ian and Susan get to know each-other better, and feaster then they planned, including their unmatched lovers-count, but she's still not over Mike. Back home, Danielle blows the fuses and gets -initially just toweled- imp Austin's help, enough for Edie to notice he can turn the 'god girl' bad, as later in hospital...
