Gabby and Carlos are just about to get busy in their hotel room when there's a knock on the door. Guess who? It's John. Brilliant. Gabby comes clean to Carlos about the earlier encounter, and after she throws a robe on over her slinky PJs, she tries to get Carlos to hide in the closet. Carlos refuses, until Gabby tells him about John's connection to Victor. "You know, the guy who hired someone to tail us and possibly kill us?" And that's Carlos in the closet, right there. Gabby answers the door, and John brightly says that he wasn't ready to start up their affair last fall. But now he is. And with that, he lets himself in and starts kissing her. Watching through the louvered closet doors that are de rigueur on TV, Carlos's eyebrows shoot up almost high enough to rattle the hangers.
At night, Lynette comes up to Susan to ask for her support in the election. And Susan shoots her down, because she needs the fountain out of there so she and Mike can sleep, and maybe Mike can have more than one scene next week, including possibly one in which he's vertical. "Tired people aren't witty," she pleads. What's her excuse the rest of the time?
Meanwhile, Gabby is trying to get rid of John, but he doesn't want to go. He talks about how horrible his wife is, and tries to relate it to the horrible things Gabby used to say about Carlos. "I think you're paraphrasing," Gabby says. John reminisces about old days. Like the time they were having sex in the shower, and then Carlos came home and pulled Gabby down on the bed, and Gabby faked an orgasm to keep Carlos from finding out. In the closet, Carlos wears an expression of shock and horror. Gabby finally hustles John out of there, and Carlos comes out of the closet, glaring at Gabby. "Boy, that was a close one, huh?" Gabby flusters. Heh.
Back from the ads, Carlos yells at Gabby for stuff that happened two years ago. She claims it's old news, but he's having trouble getting past it, having just heard about it now and all. I'd say if that's the only time Gabby ever faked an orgasm with Carlos, he should count himself lucky. Gabby tells him to move on, and when he says he should have snapped John's neck two years ago, Gabby points out that Carlos is doing the same thing to Victor that John once did to Carlos. "Who's John Rowland now?" Gabby taunts. Carlos's only answer to that is to storm out.
