Upstairs, Karl is...sorting clothing? Refolding guests' coats? Weird. Susan comes in, closes the door, and confronts him: this "fake marriage" of theirs -- it is indeed fake, right? Karl pretends not to know what she means, so she flashes the photo of them together. Karl still feigns ignorance, so Susan tells him, "Repeat after me: 'Our marriage is fake, and I'm going to marry the woman I really love, Edie Britt.'" He makes a joke of it, and then takes the photo and puts it in his pocket and tells Susan not to worry her pretty, apple-doll head over the matter. Pushy Susan keeps pushing: why is he holding on to that photo? Karl, finally serious, sadly tells Susan that he just "likes to look at it from time to time." Susan: "Why?!" Karl: "Consider it my punishment for screwing up the best thing that ever happened to me." Susan looks at him, aghast, and then shakes her cane at him and tells him, "No, this is not happening!" Karl grabs Susan's cane, throws it to the floor, and totally starts macking on Susan. At his own engagement party. Celebrating an engagement to another woman. Susan struggles and struggles, and somehow they wind up rolling around on the bed. Finally, she manages to pull her face away from Karl, but she's still straddling him when he tells her he'll do whatever she wants: marry Edie, call off the wedding, whatever...he's "putty." Just then, Edie says, "Karl?" from outside the door, and without hesitating, Karl flips Susan over his head and onto the floor beside the bed. Edie walks in just as Karl's scrambling up to his feet, and she asks him what he's up to. Karl: "Just putting away some coats." Ah, so that's what he was doing. Edie sweeps him out of the room: it's present-opening time! In the bedroom, Susan creeps slowly out of hiding. And if she secretly didn't need a cane before, that throw should do the trick.
Down at the local watering hole, Bree comes in, sits down at the bar, and says, "Hi, I need some advice from a professional. I'd like to get stinking drunk. Do you have anything that can accomplish that in a hurry?" She's wearing the same pretty cashmere coral sweater from her phone scene with Hempy, so presumably this is the direct result of his spurning. Ugh, this isn't going to end well.
