Angie Bolen gets up the next morning and sips coffee in her bathrobe. She sees something outside and sets her coffee cup down, where the camera lingers as Mary Alice begins her voiceover: "On this street, the day begins with a cup of coffee. Some drink it while recalling a lover they once cared for." (I shouldn't have to tell you that one's Gaby.) "Some pour it thinking about the boss they must lie to." (Lynette, hopefully drinking decaf.) "Some sip it, contemplating a man they might be in love with." (Bree, whose storyline sort of got dropped mid-episode, didn't it?) "But for one woman, on this particular morning..." Susan's drinking coffee, when she looks outside, and seems to stop cold. "...that cup of coffee has to wait." Susan heads outside, where Angie's picking up the garbage that's strewn all over her yard. "Because she discovers a neighbor in trouble. She goes to help." She walks into Angie's yard and pulls out her own trash bag. "Not only because it's the right thing to do, but because it's the only way she can think of." Angie smiles at her. "To ask for forgiveness. And once it is given, the day begins." Pan out as the ladies pick up trash together, and we also see someone has spray-painted "LEAVE" on the side of their house. Some neighborhood Wisteria is. I'd think home values would have dropped with all of the murders and mayhem, and now this?
