The next thing we see is Orson dropping the empty birdcage next to the trash out in front of the house. The bird is gone -- gone before I could even work in a "nobody puts Baby in the corner." R.I.P., Baby.
Six Months Ago. It's the day after the night of the Season 2 finale, about six months after the parrot extermination scene. All the springing forward and falling back is a little confusing here in the beginning, but just try to stay focused.
Unusually enough for this...Florida? California?...town, the weather is gloomy. It's raining, it's pouring. MAVO gives the rundown on what all the Housies are up to today. Bree and Orson are on their first date; you may recall that one of the last things we saw was Orson giving Bree a bouquet of flowers, after helping her escape the mental ward (where Orson was visiting a mysterious woman, not wife Alma). As I said, timing-wise, this day falls about six months after Baby bird's swan song, so I guess we know one more thing about Orson: he moves fast, like a cheetah. Then again, Bree started dating George, what, a month after Rex's death? So they have that in common, which is nice. Bree and Orson are soaking wet, running up Wisteria Lane. Orson stops and turns and gathers Bree in his arms, and they have themselves a vertical From Here To Eternity moment.
