Lynette is driving Preston somewhere at night. He is confused about where she's going, since he thought they were going to the store. He asks where they are, but she just starts talking about how much she loves her kids and would do anything for them. She didn't know it was possible to love another human being so completely before she became a mother. She feels this need to protect them. Preston's confused. She says she will never let Warren Schilling kill Porter. She explains that they're outside of a bar that Warren goes to every night, and that tonight when he leaves she's going to do what she has to to make sure her family is safe. She asks him to get out of the car, because he can't be in it when this happens. He asks if she's serious, and she looks deadly serious. She tells him to get out and starts to cry. He tells her to stop it and says he gets it: He'll call Porter and tell him not to worry about Mr. Schilling. She says he will convince Porter to come back home. He shuts his door and they drive away. Okay, wow. Lynette is crazy. I'm not convinced that even was a bar Warren frequents.
Carlos and Gaby are in their room, and he reminds her she said she'd support any decision he made after hearing Bradley out. He tells her that he can either do something fulfilling and feel good about himself or take a job he hates that will crush his soul. She tells him he can let his family continue to sacrifice or he can grow up and make real money, and look after his family like they've been doing for him. He reminds her what these jobs are like: He'll never be home. It will take a toll on the family. She says not paying the bills has taken a toll, too. He asks her to please not make him do this, but she just looks at him. Then he calls Bradley and accepts the job. She kisses him, and walks into her closet, satisfied with her pair of gold shoes and the dreams of many more such pairs. She has no idea what she's getting herself into, though she should based on how much they used to hate each other when he was successful.
Susan goes to Lee's, and awkwardly asks him, "When you spent the night, did we get it on?" He tells her she's insane, and points out the opera he's listening to and the kimono he's wearing. In other words, he's GAY, remember? He asks why she'd think that, and she says he was mad at Bob and she sometimes sabotages relationships. He says she didn't this time. She's glad that she can move in with Jackson with a clear conscience. He asks why she's moving in with Jackson. She says, "Because he loves me." Which is enough information for me to know: 1) It will not happen and 2) It's a terrible idea. Lee asks if she loves him, and she says she's "getting there." She knows that she and Mike will never get back together, and she really needs to move on. Lee points out that moving on doesn't have to mean moving in. Susan says Jackson doesn't do well with long distance, so she could lose him. Lee tells her to lose him. She says she needs a man in her life, and he asks why? "We're so useless." Susan: "But you are fun to dance with." They hug and she looks sad. He tells her to tell Jackson she's not ready, and he'll dance with her until someone better comes along. She doesn't say anything. Just gives him a kiss and leaves. So, we went from Susan wanting to be with Jackson to wanting to get over Mike to wanting to be with any man? God, I cannot stand her. Seriously, Jackson, move on. You deserve better than flaky, flighty, selfish Susan.
