Lynette's sitting at her kitchen table when Tom walks in and asks what he smells. Without missing a beat, she says, "Despair. Paralyzing fear." Tom's like, "Oh. I thought it was waffles." Lynette points out she'll be in her 60s when these twins finish high school, and Tom protests, but then realizes she's right. He reminds her how much fun they had raising the first four, and she reminds him how close to the finish line and being alone again they were, and Preston is even moving out: "We will never be done if we birth two every time one moves out. That's just math!" Heh. She storms out, and Tom sighs, "Eight and a half months to go. Yay."
Mike's at Katherine's, asking if she's all right, apparently after breaking up with her. She says she's great, and she could never picture themselves old together anyway. She gives him his engagement ring, which he says isn't necessary, but she says she doesn't need another reminder of him. She seems remarkably together in this scene, but that line's awfully telling. Sad. Then Mike's back at Susan's explaining that Katherine is okay, and seems to be trying to take the high road. Susan wonders if that means she wishes them the best, or that she's going to cut Susan's brake line, so she careens off the high road. Mike says Katherine's dealing with it, and now that she knows, it will be easier for Susan to talk to her. Susan's all, "Why? Why? You're the one who was dating her. I think we're good now." Mike says she has to deal with Katherine at some point, and Susan says she will, but then makes excuses why she can't right away. Mike says she can't avoid the person living across the street from her for fifty years, and Susan says she'll just do it until Katherine's too old to avoid things. Mike tells her not to worry, because Katherine's really going to surprise him. Is this show just trying to make Mike and Susan even more hateable? Because it's working. Susan looks out the window and sees Katherine staring at her. Well, that was sort of a surprise, I guess.
