Storyline

Tom is taking his life in his own hands now. Lynette begins spying on him through a tablet given to Penny. Renee's biased bad influence soon convinces Lynette that he is having an affair, supposedly with a foxy aerobics instructor Andre Zeller. Bree has a hard time controlling her 'I told you so' when Danielle moves back home with her son Benjamin, after a six month ill-considered marriage. The real confrontation comes when Bree discovers the starting capital she put up for 'fitness equipment' is for a 'love swing'. Gaby bluntly keeps taking on the tyrannical PTA president over parking privileges, ending in a surprise switch. Susan fakes her artistic personality to get into famous rebel painter Andre Zeller's open college class. Written by KGF Vissers
