Katherine's in her window, looking out, as Mary Alice begins her closing narration. "It is in our nature to judge the people around us. If they ignore our wishes, we believe they are disrespectful." We see Roy, back to work for Lynette, who watches him skeptically. "If they don't watch their children, we conclude they are unfit parents." Laura watches as Juanita and Celia wrestle in the park and Gaby talks on her phone, paying no attention. "If we catch them cheating, we assume we know their reasons." Danny watches his mom and dad leave the house. "But what happens when we finally stop for a moment to judge our own lives?" Bree's in the hotel, looking at the Bible in the nightstand drawer. "It can be painful to step back and see what we've been doing." Karl takes off his shirt, and as Bree gets up to kiss him, Mary Alice closes, "And even more painful to realize we have no intention of stopping." So, Bree's storyline, which was actually poignant, meant nothing? Thanks for that, show.
Next week: Susan says, "I shot her!" Everyone's wearing black. Karl proposes to Bree. Katherine says she's going to the police. Angie says, "That woman is dangerous." Susan and Katherine wrestle and fall into a big tub of bubble-bath water. How convenient for that to be right where two women get into it. Tom's drunk. Bree tells Orson she doesn't like PDA, and he's all, "Duh." Gaby tells Carlos she knows someone who isn't getting "blanked" tonight, and he says, "Fine with me. I blanked off earlier." This show's getting all funny again. I like that.
