Storyline

Bob and Lee, who fears to be blamed, sell out to Paul when they think Mitzi already sold him the casting vote in the street syndicate, only to find they just did. Despite Parker's pertinent question where the ex-cons should go if not Wisteria Lane, Lynette calls in the cavalry: Brent Ferguson's rough neighborhood activists, who come armed to her dismay. The mayor, who comes to decorate Paul, only 'presides' over mayhem in which the respectable residents misbehave almost as badly. Tom fears his past with Renée requires a drastic solution. Bree downscales Keith's proposal to cohabitation, but that proves unsatisfactory. Juanita discovers Grace is Gaby's biological daughter. Written by KGF Vissers
