Just then, a van from the hospital pulls up, and that mean nurse comes running up. Susan tells Mike to tell the nurse about all the "progress" they were making, and he looks at Susan full in the face and tells the nurse, still not taking his eyes off Susan, to take him "back to the hospital." Edie's standing there, too, looking fine in her short-short shorts and sky-high pumps. Susan goes to run after Mike, but Edie blocks her way. Though, really, what else could she say? Either way you slice it, giving up on the man you love after just six months doesn't sound good. Susan blusters that Edie is "evil," and wonders how she "sleep[s] at night." Edie: "Soon? With Mike on top of me." Susan yells "evil" a few more times. Edie suggests that maybe she and Mike were "meant to be together." The idea strikes Susan as insane: "You don't even want him; you're just doing this to hurt me." Edie gets right in Susan's face and says that she's "had a crush on Mike since the day he moved in here." It's true, Edie has been mooning over Mike for ages now, and I can see how, from her point of view, Susan is kind of a monster. Susan burned down Edie's house (accidentally, but still). Susan ran over Edie. Susan slept with Karl (yes, he manipulated her into it, but still, she slept with a supposed friend's boyfriend the day after they allegedly broke up, which is a total breach of the Friend Code). Then again, Edie did torch Susan's house. You know what, they're both awful. And Mike is boring. Really, they all deserve each other. Is Wisteria Lane ready for some poly-love? And sure, throw in Ian for some British quipping fun.
The Quincy has cracked the phone number. You remember, the one written on the dead, toothless woman's hand? The reason it took so long to crack? The last digit was "barely legible." Couldn't he have just handed over the six legible digits and had the police try the possibilities? That's only ten different phone numbers. But okay. Ghostbuster Ridley dials the number and gets...Mike Delfino Plumbing. I know it's a stretch that Mike's phone would still be turned on, six months later, but can we just say that optimistic Susan paid his bills? Hmm. Does this mean that Orson might have had a legitimate reason for running Mike down in the street?
