Dylan shows up at the hospital, and Katherine sweetly says she asked her not to come. Dylan says she had to, knowing her mom's hurt. Katherine apologizes Mike wasn't at the house to welcome her, but he's away on business. Dylan says no, he's in jail, since Katherine told the police he stabbed her. Katherine swears she didn't say that, and that Susan attacked her. Dylan asks why the police arrested Mike, and Katherine says maybe he confessed to protect her. Dylan says Susan's Mike's wife, and Katherine gets teary as she says that's ridiculous and did Susan tell her that? Dylan says Mike did, and that it's not right for him to be in jail if he didn't do anything. She asks her mom if she stabbed herself, and Katherine stares ahead and then cries that she asked her not to come. She pulls away from Dylan, and says Susan trapped Mike and filled his head with lies. She actually says, "He knows why I did it. He wants this." Susan comes in and tells Katherine she wants to help her. Katherine looks worried and says she has to get to Mike, who's expecting her. She gets up and runs into the hall. It takes two male hospital workers and a woman to subdue her, as Dylan and Susan watch in shock. Katherine, on the floor, looks at Dylan and once again says she asked her not to come. Susan comforts Dylan.
Our fated flying couple are bickering as they decide she'll go with him on this particular flight. This is the only moment where she garners the slightest bit of sympathy, as she tells him she wants to go, their therapist said it would help, would it kill him to spend time with the woman he loves. So it seems like she's at least trying. But these two characters aren't supposed to be deep, so I'll just go back to thinking they're both a waste of time.
The Christmas party's under way. All the women are in Santa hats, which makes a mean exchange in which Gaby tells Lynette to go to hell and stop talking to her (as Lynette once again tries to apologize). The Jingle Belles line up, and Bree introduces them. She turns to the women and tells them to sparkle. Why would they? Are they vampires? Bob, in the audience, tells Lee he can't believe they wouldn't let him in their group. Lee says it's their group and they can do whatever they want... "whores." As the singing begins, Gaby and Lynette bicker over Lynette's hat being in the way, and it goes downhill from there. Lynette was going to apologize. Gaby says it's too late, since Carlos might lose his job. (Lynette: "Gee, I wonder how that feels.") Lynette says Tom has to quit school. Gaby makes fun of him for being so old and in school, anyway. Lynette won't move, so Gaby takes her hat. Tom and Carlos watch, disgusted. Bree tries to stop them as they fight, one of them calling the other a bitch. Bob and Mrs. McC's boyfriend, Ray, joke about that word not being in "Silent Night." Gaby and Lynette's fighting ends up knocking Bree over. Orson and Carlos watch, and Orson doesn't look all that upset. They all seem sort of over it, at this point. Like, yep, those would be our wives. Bree stands and says they're taking a break, mid-song, and will be right back.
