Mary Alice's Voice Over picks back up that it's not always easy to see someone's true colors. Susan watches Mike stain a chair in the garage as MAVO says you sometimes must look beneath the masculine veneer (get it? Because he's staining a chair?) to see the fragile ego. All of the Scavos except Lynette are gathered happily around Irina's new ring as MAVO says you must ignore the sparkle of the jewel to know you're looking at a fake. Lynette stands aside, ignoring Inira's sparkle, knowing she's a fake. Bree walks from her dark kitchen into the lightened breakfast nook and serves Sam coffee. MAVO says you must bring the truth out of the shadows to see the beauty of its smile. "Yes, people hide their true nature from us every day, and sadly, we only find out when it's too late." Nosy neighbor lady calls "Mr. Logan." She tells him she's Rose's nosy neighbor, Iris, and she saw Rose's daughter. She says she'll tell him where she lives when she gets her $1,000.
Next week: Lynette catches Preston doing something naughty with his fiancee in her house. Gaby and Susan are in some sort of competition, and they'll both stop at nothing to win. Gaby's all sexy in front of construction workers. Andrew finds out Sam's his brother, and Bree thinks they'll hit it off. But then Sam smashes a guitar in Bree's pristine living room. Lynette gets a whole dish of something red to the face, courtesy of Irina. And our "dark stranger" Patrick Logan shows up, and Angie pulls out a gun. Then we hear a gunshot. So ... what does any of this have to do with Julie being attacked? Or does anyone even care about that anymore?
