Tom's staring at the dead body on the couch, which is literally draped in a sheet like these people weren't already the ghoulishest, and then Lynette comes up behind him moaning Tommm and he screams and jumps and it's funny, and they talk about how JR had nine kids and 14 grandchildren, and everybody hated him because he was truly an awful person and bought his families at a discount with his Ewing millions, and Tom gets all deep about how "the tricky thing about money" is that it changes people and relationships. (Which is not actually true, unless you're awful to start with, which this show assumes everybody is.) Lynette gets all existential for a second about how you can't take it with you, and then does a corpse puppet show to creep out her husband, because even the best people on this show are still the worst people comparatively.
Carlos figures out like immediately that Gabrielle has traded the talking cure for other kinds of therapy -- massage, aroma -- and so he goes on down to the spa and puts his blind-masseur training into effect for a second, just enough to hurt his wife physically, before additionally spanking her for being naughty, and it's so gross. Gabi says that the spa treatments are just as therapeutic, blah blah, but he says her crazy is not the usual kind of crazy and that there is something going on inside her that is no good, and then orders her out into the car, and does the whole alpha male thing he always does, and she acts like a creepy little girl some more, and ugh.
The coroners show up in the morning Chez Scavo and since Lynette's mother is a licensed medical professional they just take her word for it as far as time of death. No need for an autopsy or whatever, let's just say he died on the couch at three AM and not like ten hours prior to that. Either this is the show being stupid as usual, or mom's going to end up not getting the money, either way it's totally obvious and dumb and exactly how this storyline always goes. Those are the two options, either mom's going to become a money-controlling manipulator animated purely by her loneliness, or she's going to end up a financial burden once again, and I'm thinking actually it will be both. Meantime, everybody wants laptops and motorcycles and Tom wants the Bentley and Lynette acts like she's totally above it, as usual, even though she's the most complicit person in the entire situation, as usual.
