Stunned and obviously in pain (but with dress still intact...nice stitching job, Bree!), Gabby writhes and groans on the floor, and is completely unable to get up when Caleb walks slowly down the stairs toward her. He stands over her for a few seconds, once again backlit and totally unrecognizable. (I wonder, are they trying to pave the way for some kind of ID confusion later down the line, or is this just part of smoothing over the switch of the actors playing Caleb? Hmm.) After a few seconds, Caleb steps over Gabby and casually walks out the door.
The sound of an ambulance siren transitions us to the next scene: a crime photographer is taking photos, Bree is getting her statement taken by a policeman, and Gabby is being rolled out of her house on a gurney. MAVO: "Yes, cameras are tools designed to capture images." Gabby motions Bree to come closer, and then she whispers something in her ear. Bree tells the ambulance people that she needs to go get something for Gabby before they leave, and tears back into the house. MAVO: "But in truth, they can capture so much more. They can uncover hidden longing of men who should no longer care." We see Karl gazing upon a photo, this one of just Susan, and then slipping it into a book. Uh oh, poor Edie! MAVO: "They can reveal the extraordinary secrets of the most ordinary marriages." We see the Porndogs happily eating popcorn and watching themselves sex it up on video. MAVO: "Most amazing of all, cameras can quietly and clearly reveal to us our dreams -- dreams we didn't even know we had." Bree runs out of Gabby's house and steps into the ambulance. As she sits next to Gabby, she hands her the sonogram picture, and Gabby looks at it tearfully, and then holds it to her chest and closes her eyes. The ambulance doors close, and the light goes off inside the ambulance. And suddenly I'm totally choked up! Hell.
NEXT WEEK: car fire!
