Susan arrives with Ian on one arm and a conciliatory bunt cake in the other. Bree seats everyone (Lynette, Tom, Susan, Ian, Gabby, Orson) and then announces her big surprise: "This is Alma Hodge, Orson's first wife." And then to Susan, in a stage whisper: "Oh and about that apology...anytime you're ready." And the "Zinger" zither swells.
Later, as Susan, Gabby, and Lynette gather in the kitchen to put together dessert, Lynette says: "You've got to hand it to her, just when you think Bree's thrown every conceivable theme party, she hosts a 'Shame on You for Thinking My Husband Killed Someone' dinner." Susan, who is wearing an AMAZING DRESS (deep teal, sweet scooped neckline, mini-cap shoulder detailing, contrast stitching ) THAT I WANT AND WANT, is all, "So Alma's alive. Big deal. We still don't know what went down between Orson and Monique." And the doorbell chimes.
It's Ghostbuster Ridley, come to bring Orson down to the station for some questioning. Susan immediately looks profoundly guilty, and Bree zeros right in on it. Bree, gasping: "Susan!" Susan: "I didn't know they were going to come tonight!" Oh, Susan. Orson heads off with Ridley, and Bree and Susan light into each other. Bree told Susan about Orson's affair in confidence! Susan couldn't possibly sit on information that might help Mike! In the middle of the exchange, Susan lets slip that she spoke with Mike earlier in the week, so suddenly now Ian's all worked up (because she broke her promise not to see Mike). Ian storms off, Bree tells Susan their friendship is over, Susan leaves, Bree heads into the kitchen, Gabby goes after Susan, and Lynette follows Bree. Tom and Alma sit there, alone, for a few moments, and then Tom semi-hilariously turns to her and says, "So, Winnipeg. It must get pretty cold up there."
Susan's house. Ian's only there to pick up his coat, and then he's totally going to leave. Susan: "You had to know that I would go one last time to explain everything to him!" While I agree that she had every right to go to visit Mike and explain things, I think she's completely deluded if she thinks that Ian would automatically be okay with it, sans an 82-hour discussion beforehand. Is Susan really that out to lunch? Anyway, Ian yells at her something about how she already left him once for Mike, which I guess hurt his feelings. Susan yells, "Things are different now, I love you, you don't have to worry about that anymore. God, if we're going to make this relationship work, then you're going to have to trust me..." She trails off once she realizes that Ian's gone all silent and google-eyed: "You just said that you loved me," he purrs. And then he kisses her all up her neck. Her rage dissolves into passion, etc. Whatever, guy who's still married to a woman who's clearly going to wake up from her coma any day now.
