Here come a black-clad Bree and Danielle, walking up to new neighbor Betty's house with a basket of welcome goodies. Betty and her pretty son Matthew are where they always are: out on the front porch. Betty is sweeping and Matthew is cleaning the windows. Bree: "I would have been over sooner to introduce myself, but I'm afraid there's been a death in the family." Danielle pipes up with "my dad." Pretty, pretty Matthew offers his condolences, saying he knows what they're going through because he lost his dad, too. Danielle thanks him sweetly and, perhaps, flirtatiously? She seems almost pathologically un-sad here, considering that her dad just died. And all. Is she perhaps so taken with the vision that is Matthew that her sorrow is momentarily assuaged? Bree confesses that her visit has an ulterior motive: the church's organist is on vacation, and Edie mentioned that Betty used to be a concert pianist? Betty graciously says she'd be honored to play for Bree, and they make a plan to go over some potential selections later. Bree thanks her for taking such a huge weight off of shoulders, and then hands over her basket full of freshly baked cookies. If it were anyone else, I'd say organizing cookies in the middle of fresh mourning would be slightly freaky, but that's our Bree! Betty thanks her for the sweetness of the gesture, then steps in closer and squeezes Bree's hands. "Bree, we widows have to stick together," she says, and the twinkling of dramatic music starts to rise. Bree gives a small thank you and, looking very much like she's about to lose it, she walks off with Danielle. Betty comes up behind Matthew and says, "Pretending you're father's dead? Don't you think that's a little morbid?" Matthew: "I just thought I could help our cover story, okay? You know, just...win them over." Betty gives him a hug, "Sweetie," she says, and then rubs his pectorals, "I know you meant well." She gives him a few pats. "But in the future, you leave the cleverness to me." And then she walks into the house. Hmmm. I'm not entirely sure, but did Betty just get to second base with her son?
Susan is on her lawn, hammering in a sign for Dorset Security. Julie comes out and they chitchat awhile about how there's no actual security system -- just the sign, which Mike so thoughtfully gave her to scare away Zana and make Susan feel safe. Susan: "That guy is so supportive. You know he's out right now, in a ride-along with the police, searching for Zach?" Julie looks doubtful. "Yeah," Susan gushes on, "he's determined to see that guy behind bars." Susan blathers on some more about how Julie needs to talk up the new security system tomorrow at school. Meanwhile, Julie tries to get one word in edgewise. It takes three tries, but finally she gets Susan to stop talking. Julie: "Yesterday, I overheard Mike tell that cop that he didn't want to press charges against Zach. He made the whole thing sound like it was your fault." Susan: "MY fault!" She seems so surprised. Poor Susan. At least her lip is miraculously healed. You know, the bloody lip that had her wailing in the hospital just yesterday?
