By the side of a mountainous road, Susan is changing Edie's tire. "I bet you were a cheerleader in high school, weren't you?" Edie asks. Susan was. That must have been one klutzy cheerleading squad. I wish we could see the flashback where Susan falls off the top of the pyramid, or knocks the rest of her squad into the tuba section of the band. "How'd you know?" Susan asks. Edie says that girls like Susan are always cheerleaders: "Clear skin, honor roll, popular. In high school I was the girl who hung out with the freaks on the loading dock and smoked. Everyone hated us." Susan thanks God that they eventually get to leave high school behind. But Edie doesn't think they do: "I'm still the outsider that doesn't get invited to the cool parties, and you're still the perky cheerleader who thinks that she can pull the wool over everyone's eyes." Susan makes serious guilty faces. "What?" she asks. Edie: "You came on this trip. Paid for the gas. And look at you, you're changing this flat when you know I have Auto Club. You want something from me." Not such a dumb blonde after all, is she? Susan explains that she just knows that Susan is having a hard time with Mrs. Kravitz's death. "That's a lie," Edie says. I am really starting to like her. Can we swap her out for Lynette? Susan wonders why Edie thinks she's lying. Edie: "Because we're still in high school. The old rules still apply. The cool kids only want to talk to the freaks when they need something. Now, you're not getting back in my car until you tell me what it is that you want." Susan hems and haws, and finally blurts that she hasn't always been very nice to Edie, and she wants to make amends. "Hmph." Edie says. "I still think you're full of crap. But we don't have time to debate this." They get back in the car, and Susan says she totally would have talked to Edie in high school. "You know, of all the lies you've told? That is the worst," Edie says.
Remember that Shadowy Older Man Mike hung out with at the park? I think his name is Frank, or something. Well, it is now. Mike shows up at Frank's house and finds him on the porch. He wants it all back: "My maps, pictures, my gun. And the money." "Oh, my money?" Frank asks. Mike tells Frank that he's never going to get someone who "cares as much about finding Deidre as [Mike] [does]." Frank rolls his eyes: "Why, because you loved her so much? You abandoned her, remember? You saved yourself. Found yourself a nice safe wife. And left my daughter to rot. So forgive me if I question your level of commitment." So Mike, naturally, slams Frank against a pole and grits that he needs to do this: "Why are you fighting me?" Frank rolls his eyes yet again: "Because you haven't been moving fast enough." A meta-statement about this plot if I ever heard one, so thank you, Frank. Also, because Frank has a tumor "pressing on his brain." Wouldn't that be...a brain tumor? At any rate, Mike looks stunned. "I'm gonna die," Frank says. "And I'd like to know what happened to my daughter before I do."
