Rex and KimberBree get home to see the police swarming their property. There's been a break-in! "I gotta tell you, ma'am, I thought I'd seen a lot on the job, but this is something else," says one of the cops, letting Rex and KimberBree into their house. Zack has kitted the place up for the holidays, including stockings for Paul, Mary Alice, and Zack. There's a bad shot when they run into their living room -- you can see the top of the set walls. Bad form, kids. Rex is perplexed by this whole holiday thing, but KimberBree is just sad.
After the ads, we learn that Zack chopped down one of the Van de Kamps' pine trees for the Christmas tree. "Why?" KimberBree asks Zack, who sadly says that he doesn't know. She tells the police to take the cuffs off the kid. They point out that Zack has confessed. "This is not up for discussion," snaps KimberBree. Paul walks in at this moment, and looks pissed. There's so very much staring. Zack hesitantly reaches out and takes KimberBree's hand.
So, Susan is working her corner when Mike drives up. "You okay?" he asks. "Yeah," she admits. "Then how much for a trip around the world?" he grins. Susan rolls her eyes. "I can't believe Julie sent you," she says, as she climbs into the car. "She is soon going to be dead." She tosses the Screwdriver of Evidence onto Mike's dashboard and explains that it never got sent in for prints. "I don't want to talk about it," she pouts. Mike just looks relieved.
Gabrielle walks through the house, talking to Carlos on her cell phone. She explains to him that his poor old confused mother is old and confused. Gabrielle doesn't add that she totally framed Mama Solis for shoplifting. In the living room, Mama Solis knits, like a twenty-first-century Madame Defarge. Gabrielle gets off the phone and asks Mama Solis what she wants for dinner. Mama Solis isn't hungry. Except, you know, for Gabrielle's blood. She sits Gabrielle down and tells her this long story Carlos's dad, who was a real dillhole who beat her up and was terrible to Carlos and beat Carlos when he was drunk and then something inside her snapped and blah blah blah, she killed him with her Knitting Needles of Doom. I mean, she isn't that direct or anything, but we all know that's what happened. Gabrielle gulps and says that she thought Papa Solis ran off with a waitress. "That's what [Carlos] was told," says Mama Solis ominously. "All mothers know they have to protection our children. But some of us take our jobs more seriously than others." Gabrielle says that she doesn't know why Mama Solis is telling her this. "I think you do," says Mama Solis, and knits loudly. Her knitting needles sound like knives. Oh, there will be stabbing in the future. I can feel it.
