Lynette walks into Porter's room without knocking (which seems a little strange to do to your teenage son), and he's leaving a phone message pleading with someone to call him back. She asks who it was and he pretends it was a friend who has his bus pass. She tells him they need to talk, and he sits by her on the bed. She tells him how important it is that he tell her the truth and then asks if he set the fire. She tells him that if he did, she and Tom will stand behind him and try to find a way out of this nightmare, but if he lies and she finds out later, she will still love him but not believe in him. And if she doesn't believe in him, she can't help him. She says they have to tell each other the truth from here on out. He tells her he didn't start the fire, and she gives him a great big relieved hug. The truth talk seemed to get through, too, because he admits he was leaving a message for Anne, and asks if Lynette knows where she is. Lynette says she doesn't, which is not necessarily a lie. Maybe all she did was drop Anne at the bus station, with no knowledge of where she was headed. So, not a lie, right? Or am I trying to forgive her on a technicality?
Carlos tells Gaby he's really excited to see Christmas lights and holiday decorations as she crawls into bed and winces in pain. She says it's just her hamstring because she's been working out, and then tells him that as excited as he is to see Christmas decorations, he should realize they might have lost their luster. He asks if they should buy new decorations, but she says she's talking about herself. He says he'll always find her beautiful, but she's skeptical. She winces again and he scoots over to her and starts massaging her thigh. He tells her the night he first knew he would marry her: the night they went to that restaurant on Third Street. She wore a white linen sundress and ordered a giant plate of ribs. She ate them with gusto, up to her elbows in sauce, with meat hanging from her teeth and grease in her hair. He told her she was a mess and she pulled out a mirror and looked into it, and let out a huge unrestrained laugh. He says he thought to himself that was a sound he could hear for the rest of his life. He says that's when he knew, and it had nothing to do with her looks. She asks if he knows when she decided she wanted to be with him forever, and tells him it was about two seconds ago, because "Up until then it was pretty touch and go." She gives him a totally sweet kiss and a nuzzle, and it sort of melted my cold heart. They have become the most adorable couple. I am hoping that Carlos getting his sight back and Gaby possibly getting hot again won't ruin this good thing they have going.
