Tom shows up at Creepy Dave's house. [Is anyone left running Scavo's? - Z] All Creepy Dave manages is, "Hi, buddy..." before Tom punches him in the face. Creepy Dave plays dumb, but Tom says he knows he's the one who told the cops Porter started the fire. Creepy Dave says he didn't say Porter started the fire, only that he saw him in the hallway. Tom yells that he couldn't have seen him there, since he wasn't there. Creepy Dave says the cops were really pressuring him and he had to tell him what he thought he saw. Tom says Porter could have gone to jail, and now his family's broke. Creepy Dave gets all panicky, breathing heavily but almost too rhythmically, promising he'll make it up to Tom. He says he'd never want to hurt Tom or Lynette. Tom says he didn't tell Lynette about this, because if he had, Creepy Dave would be dead. [Or, at least, his car would be a wreck. - Z] Creepy Dave tells him he's sorry and he knows he shouldn't have said anything, but it was dark and he'd been drinking. Tom pulls back to punch again, but Creepy Dave grabs Tom's punching arm, then gets him in some sort of choke hold and says, "Stop. Just stop." Then he asks if Tom's done, as if Tom's five. Tom says he is, so Creepy Dave lets him go. Creepy Dave pleads that there has to be a way to work this out, because they're friends. Tom says that's what he thought, too, but he doesn't know who Creepy Dave is anymore. He walks off, as Creepy Dave yells after him, "Tom!" and then stands there fuming, but in his creepy, calm way.
Still calm as he reads in bed with Edie, Creepy Dave tells Edie he doesn't want to talk about his first wife. Edie says it's been weeks since she found out about her and she hasn't mentioned her once, so she'd like to ask just one question. He relents. Edie asks what the biggest difference is between being married to her and being married to Edie. He answers quickly that, honestly, this marriage is more real. Edie seems to like that answer, so she cuddles up to him. But she asks "In what way?" That's two questions, Creepy Dave. Don't answer! He tells Edie he thought his other marriage was a fairy tale that would last forever, but it didn't. Edie's obviously not pleased that "not a fairy tale" is what he meant by "more real." He goes on that what he has with Edie is more real because he knows it's not forever. She looks confused. He says that when he's with Edie, he tells himself to appreciate the moment because tomorrow might never come, since love is just temporary. "The way the fairy tale ends... is death." Okay, a couple things: 1. Is he also talking about Mike and whoever he loves? 2. Does this mean he really didn't meet Edie intentionally, knowing where she was from, and that he really does love her? It seemed too quick and imperfect a response to not be sincere, I think. Edie says she wishes she'd gone with her first instinct, which was to ask if his first wife was prettier than her.
