"Wah wah this is hard, wah wah I can't do this, wah wah I got addicted to Ritalin," says Lynette to KimberBree and Susan at the park. She loves the kids, she says, but she's sorry they have her as a mother. KimberBree lies, comfortingly, and tells Lynette she's a great mother. Lynette: "Wah wah wah failure, wah wah wah humiliating." Susan and KimberBree, for their parts, are very sympathetic and understanding and supportive. KimberBree tells Lynette that she just needs to get some help, and Lynette wails that no one else seems to need any help, and Susan and KimberBree both explain that they almost went out of their minds when their kids were younger. All they did was cry! All day long! Lynette sobs that they should have told her that and sobs and sobs and sobs. "Nobody likes to admit they can't handle the pressure," says KimberBree. Susan adds that a lot of people think it's easier to keep it all in. "We should tell each other this stuuuuuuuuuff," Lynette wails. And then there is hugging. And drinking. But the drinking is only on my part.
Night on Wisteria Lane. Creepy Paul is drinking. So is Shaft. So am I, as I just mentioned. "So it was [Mrs. Kravitz] all along," Paul says. I think I speak for all of us when I say, "DUH, PAUL." Shaft agrees: "Edie didn't move in with Mrs. Kravitz until after Mary Alice got the note." OF COURSE SHE DIDN'T. Man, the two of you are dumb. "My god, we almost killed an innocent woman," Paul breathes. Yes, because of the aforementioned dumbness. Shaft reminds Paul that he doesn't do refunds, but adds that he'd be totally happy to kill Mrs. Kravitz. Paul says no, because it isn't what Mary Alice would have wanted. For future reference, and I hope y'all never need to know this, but just in case, I totally want someone to avenge my death violently. Thanks.
So Shaft leaves, and Paul goes over and beats Mrs. Kravitz to death with Mary Alice's own blender. Symbolism, ahoy. But not before Paul totally calls her on the whole blackmailing thing. Mrs. Kravitz isn't feeling real guilty about the whole situation. In fact, she says she doesn't feel bad about it at all. Not after what Mary Alice "did to that poor baby." Mrs. Kravitz explains that her idiot husband died and left her with a worthless pension, "and it's better to take money from a bad person than a good one. How was I supposed to know [Mary Alice had] shot herself?" That is a very good question. Which Paul answers by bashing Mrs. Kravitz's head in.
