Tom runs after Lynette, and then they dig into one of their awesome scenes. Tom pleads that he's just trying to think of Kayla. Lynette, very emotional in that very emotional way that Lynette does best: "I know you love her. Why else do you think I'm willing to put up with all this for six months? Why do you think I'm willing to say to my college roommates, 'Yes, that's my husband's lovechild and her mother in our Christmas picture'? Because. I am. Your wife. You always come first with me. Do I still come first with you?" Tom stares at her intensely, and then he makes a decision. He spins around and goes back to where Nora and Kayla are standing. "I guess I'll see you later, Nora," he says firmly. Nora, faltering, tells him that she's going to take her daughter. Tom: "Well that's a shame. I've got to go hoist a piÃ±ata." Literally! (I never get tired of the "literally." Never.) Kayla, stricken by the news that she's going to miss bashing tissue-covered cardboard until its candy innards explode, pleads with Nora. Nora looks at Kayla, at Tom, at Lynette. And then she blurts out an enraged "FINE! I'll be back at 7. But there had better be a corner piece of cake waiting for me." Well bargained, Nora. Always, always get the cake. Nora turns to leave, and she and Lynette exchange a feisty stare as Nora passes. Tom sends Kayla into the party, and Lynette comes up to Tom and very sincerely thanks him. Tom: "I'll be back in twenty minutes." Lynette: "Are you going to go buy a piÃ±ata?" Tom: "I sure am." How did he know that an invented piÃ±ata would do the trick? More importantly, how long is this storyline going to linger? Because I'm getting a little overdone with Snora's shrill relationship with the Scavos.
