Susan is thumbing through the yellow pages, looking for a private dick. To investigate her kitchen explosion! There's a long list to choose from. (I guess when people aren't checking their mail or indulging in an unhealthy obsession with flowers on Wisteria Lane, they're hiring investigators to snoop on each other?) After about three seconds of thorough research and deliberation, Susan randomly selects Shaft, the same investigator CreePaul hired to find out who was blackmailing Mary Angela. Susan asks Shaft if he can help her dig up some dirt on her neighbor, Paul Young. As a matter of fact, Shaft knows he can! After all, he knew the man well enough to kill for him.
Final MAVO: "Spring comes every year to Wisteria Lane." Uh-huh, sure MA, you said that already. And it wasn't exactly profound the first time around? "But not everyone remembers to stop and smell the flowers." Flowers, right. Flowers, flowers, FLOWERS! "Some are too busy worrying about the future." Lynette sits on her porch, worrying about her future. "Or mistakes they've made in the past." Gabby sits on her porch and touches her little "mistake." "Others are preoccupied with not getting caught." Bree and George rendezvous at some park, looking guilty. "Or thinking of ways to catch someone else." Susan and CreePaul stare at each other from their sides of the street. "Still, there will always be a few who remember to take a moment and appreciate what spring has given them." Felicia sits with her gnomes, smiling and fondling her flower garden. "Just as there will always be those who prefer to sit in the dark...brooding over...everything...they've...lost." Zana lies on his bed in the dark, a lit lighter at his chest and a whole stalker wall full of pictures of Julie. It is a truly creepy scene. I just got chills, seriously. That house is a bachelor pad of the damned, full of sadness, failure, and evil. And shirts dying to be untucked.
