Bree pours herself a glass of wine, and Andrew goes into the fridge for some milk. Bree tells him that she's scheduled some time with a family therapist Andrew, Danielle, and herself. Andrew is all, "I don't think so." Bree tells him that the "pain" that he's feeling is "completely natural," but that it isn't going to go away until he deals. Andrew doesn't even dignify Bree's touch-feely mumbo-jumbo with a response; he just closes the refrigerator and heads for the living room. Bree calls after him: "I want us to heal. I want us to be a family again." Andrew tells her that what he wants is for George to walk through the door, so that Andrew can "take a knife and plunge it into his heart": "I want the pharmacist to pay for what he did to my father." Bree, in a small voice, says that the "good news is [George] is dead." Andrew: "He committed suicide. His death was on his terms. That's not justice." Bree, looking suspiciously like she's...oh god, she isn't going to actually tell him that she watched George die? Oh, but she is! Bree: "So are you saying that if he were executed that it would be easier for you to get past this?" Andrew is all, "Of course." So Bree sighs, sits down, and forks over the story: "George didn't intend to commit suicide. He was trying to manipulate me into taking him back, and he swallowed those pills hoping that I'd feel sorry for him. He just assumed that I would call an ambulance. When I got there, he was already slipping away. I tried to get him to accept responsibility for what he'd done. But he wouldn't." Andrew: "So what'd you do?" Bree: "Nothing. I just sat there and let him die. He didn't die on his own terms, Andrew. He died for what he did to your father." Andrew leans in and gives Bree a big hug, and while he's embracing her, he thanks her for telling him her secret, and then he rolls his eyes in a way that does not bode at all well for Bree. Convenient that Andrew would have a passionate opinion about how suicide doesn't equal justice, and that this request for justice would be the very key that would unlock Bree's big compromising secret, and it all would come out on the very day after he told Justin about his desire to get Bree over a barrel. Magical!
