MAVO: "There is a prayer intended to give strength to people faced with circumstances they don't want to accept. The power of the prayer comes from its insight into human nature." Down at the AA meeting, Bree herself leads the Serenity Prayer. MAVO: "Because so many of us rage against the hand that life has dealt us." Edie throws the last of Karl's clothing out onto the lawn and then dusts of her hands. MAVO: "Because so many of us are cowardly, and afraid to stand up for what is right." Ed heads off to the elevator, and Lynette gazes after him anxiously. MAVO: "Because so many of us give in to despair when faced with an impossible choice." Betty strokes her gigantic bottle of Phenobarbital and then tucks it away in a drawer. MAVO: "The good news for those who utters these words is that God will hear you and answer your prayer." Bree finishes up the Serenity Prayer ("...and the wisdom to know the difference"), and then she and Hempy smile at each other and squeeze hands. MAVO: "The bad news is that sometimes the answer is 'no.'" Carlos steers an unhinged Gabby into the house and closes the door. Sad!
Next week: the countdown to the season finale kicks into high gear, and Edie, for one, looks pretty mad.
