Lynette comes home from work to find Carlos waiting for her out in front of her house. Carlos starts out tamely, thanking Lynette for "patching things up with Gabby." Carlos tells Lynette that it's been "really tough on [Gabby], with everybody finding out about the affair." Lynette, somewhat awkwardly (like, what is this about?), makes some noises about how she "can imagine." Carlos: "I don't mind telling you, it's been pretty tough on us these past couple months." Without taking a step closer to Carlos, Lynette leans waaaay over to give his shoulder a little rub and tells him she hopes that he and Gabby "work it out." Carlos smiles to himself and mutters, "Yeah, we're trying." Lynette turns to go inside, and Carlos pipes up: "You know! Gabby had an interesting suggestion." Here we go! Carlos explains about Gabby's brilliant scheme for him to have a retaliatory affair as a way to help their marriage. Lynette, smiling unsurely, asks him, "Why are you telling me this?" Carlos: "I guess I just wanted to know if you had any thoughts on the subject." Lynette, finally getting it: "I....don't [patented uncomfortable Lynette laughter]...I really...don't." Not at all fazed, Carlos smiles and tells her to let him know if ever she does...have...thoughts on the subject. Hm. I guess all of Carlos's choirboy aspirations have fallen by the wayside, what with trying to have an affair with a married woman? Lynette smiles and turns again to go inside (where, just feet away, her husband surely waits? Carlos? Hello?), when again Carlos calls her back (causing me to cringe, wee-wee-wee, all the way home). Carlos: "That was one hell of a kiss you gave me. You can't fake chemistry like that!" Why Carlos, are you ending your sentence with a proposition?
