Storyline

Bree considers selling her cooking business to save her marriage to Orson, but soon goes back on her word when both of their egos get in the way. Meanwhile, Lynette is threatened by Lucy at her new office job, while Gabrielle and Carlos cross boundaries as Carlos has no time for her, and Lynette decides to play Lucy and Carlos against one another. Elsewhere, Katherine volunteers to accompany Mike and Dave on a camping trip while he plots to murder her with a gun he brings. Susan's ex-husband, Karl, returns and enrolls his troubled son, Evan, in her class where a gruesome drawing by the petulant youngster disturbs her. Also, Edie continues investigating Dave's past and finally learns about Dave's connection to Mike, but at the end learns the fatal way just how seriously deranged her husband is. Written by matt-282
