Anyway, as Barbara sneaks out the back, Maisy opens the door to Rex, surprising absolutely no one. He kisses Maisy hello as she shuts the door on the camera. Well, because that's not suspicious, there in broad daylight. Yet another plot point which in part depends on the supposition that no one on Wisteria Lane -- or wherever Maisy lives, which I suspect is Wisteria Lane-adjacent, rather than Wisteria Lane proper -- ever looks out her window or spies on her neighbors. Seriously, does no one find it suspicious that Maisy Gibbons has men traipsing in and out of her house at regular intervals all afternoon? At the very least, I would suspect her of being a drug dealer.
Courthouse. Everyone sits around and waits for Carlos to be arraigned. He's in his prison jumpsuit. Wouldn't someone have brought him a suit for this event? Maybe not. I can't remember when they start letting you change your clothes. It might be after you make bail. Anyway, Gabrielle sits and waits while MAVO introduces all the players in the courtroom, like we couldn't figure out that the person in the black gown was the judge. Gabrielle is surrounded by her bitch posse, and Lynette, I must say, looks very sharp in a suit, sans choker. And sans babies, I might add. Anyway, the prosecutor wants to deny bail, because Carlos's company imported goods manufactured by slave labor, and "his business partner, Mr. Tanaka, has already fled the country." I thought Tanaka was Carlos's client, not his partner, but I admit that I may have spaced out on that plot point. The prosecutor continues and says that Carlos has refused to surrender his passport, and therefore is a flight risk. Carlos's attorney says that the passport is merely lost, and also, that Tanaka totally set Carlos up. "Mr. Solis is no business partner, but merely a hired contractor," he adds. He tells the judge that Carlos is "the sole provider" for Gabrielle and the still coma-licious Mama Solis. The judge says that as soon as Carlos turns in his passport, they can talk bail, and Carlos can go visit the patient. Until then, he's stuck in the pokey. Carlos looks irritated, not to mention scruffy. Gabrielle closes her eyes in frustration.
Over at Lynette's, she's ordering Pantone, Pantene, and Pandemic to finish their brussels sprouts. Dude, who serves brussels sprouts at lunch? I like them, but I don't want them in the middle of the day. Anyway, the boys don't want their vegetables. Lynette tells them that veggies help you grow, and rubs the sprouts in some cheese. But the boys just spit them out, make a series of disgusted noises, and run off. "Fine! Be three foot eight for the rest of your life! See if I care," Lynette spits. "Good luck finding GIRLFRIENDS." Way to handle the problem maturely, Lynette. Whatever happened to, "You don't have to eat them all, but you have to eat ONE." But no, as ever, it's all about how aggravated Lynette is and how hard her life is, and blah. Enter Nanny Claire. "I thought you had a lunch today," she says. Lynette whines that she's going to cancel it: "The boys are in rare form and you're still finding your way." Claire points out that it's been two days. Lynette stammers that she doesn't want to "shock them" by "suddenly disappearing." Dude, you were JUST AT THE COURTHOUSE WITHOUT THEM LIKE AN HOUR AGO. Anyway, Claire assures her that they'll be fine. Lynette makes Claire promise to call if she needs anything, and gets "a three bear hug" from the boys. They say goodbye cheerfully and run off to play with Claire. Lynette reluctantly leaves.
