Bree and her eighth-wonder cleavage ask why Alma decided to come back at all, and Alma gushes that she's recently received the help of a good therapist. Alma: "He told me that by holding on to my anger, I was really just hurting myself, which was hard to deny. I mean, hello! I'm here in Winnipeg with the deaf aunt and no credit!" She ends this revelation with an insane Stepford robot smile that severely undercuts her claim of newfound mental wellness. Just then, Orson arrives home from work and his jaw swings when he sees his two wives sitting pretty on the couch. "So," saucy Alma says, "What is it with you and redheads?" Yeah! Wasn't Monique a redhead, too?
Gabby is sitting out in Wisteria Lane's little park, suffering her way through a picnic with her new boyfriend Bill. Bob? In any case, he's wearing a jaunty little newsie cap that is perhaps just a shade overly precious. Gabby's cell phone rings: it's Carlos, who's gleefully watching her pretend to enjoy herself from Mike's house across the street. "Who's the dork?" he asks. "What's with that cap?" And then in a singsong, he taunts, "Extra, extra, read all about itttt!" Apparently Gabby hasn't noticed that Carlos moved in with Mike. Carlos: "Gabby, my car's been in the driveway for three weeks. Even you can't be that self-absorbed." Gabby smugs that she's been too busy to notice (i.e., she's been too busy "delivering the paper" to newsboy Billy Bob). Carlos: "So when you going to tell Jimmy Olsen there that you hate picnics?" Gabby hangs up and Cappy's bleach-bright smile fades just a little at the hot-breaking news that his girlfriend's ex-husband has moved in across the street.
Casa All My Children...Lynette is giving the three Scavo boys their instructions: Tom's bringing in Kayla, who's moving in with them, and they have to be nice to her because she's been through a lot. A shell-shocked-looking Kayla comes in, and the boys all stand there, staring at her. Lynette narrows her eyes at them and they all zombie over to her and start petting her all reluctantly. With more prodding from Tom, the boys then each give Kayla a gift: a harmonica, a book (Harriet the Spy!), a video game. And Lynette gives her an antique doll, which used to belong to her grandmother. Penny, by the way, is nowhere in sight, and good thing: I'm guessing she'd want her mother's precious doll way more than Kayla, who's supposed to be twelve years old and way too old for dolls. Kayla gives a very under-whelmed (or maybe just shy?) "thanks." Tom says something about making chili for dinner, and Kayla heads upstairs. As she climbs the stairs, she deliberately lets the doll's head knock against the banister. Hmmm.
