Inside, CreePaul is going over Zana's reading-list options. Apparently, Zana's getting home-schooled now. And they do their studying in the middle of the night. (Either that, or Bree's makeout party broke up very, very early.) Zana's choices are The Old Man And the Sea, The Pearl, and Much Ado about Nothing. CreePaul is very chipper about these reading choices, but sullen Zana is less than thrilled. Unfazed, CreePaul selects The Pearl: "It's got a sad ending, but it's good." CreePaul does some more rah-rahing about home-schooling, but Zana remains sullenly silent. CreePaul: "Okay, I know this isn't what you want, but I need to keep you close to me, just for a while. There's [sic] people in this neighborhood that aren't thrilled that we're back, people I don't trust." "People like...Mike Delfino?" Zana suggests. CreePaul feigns surprise, and Zana explains that Mrs. Tillman said that Mike took CreePaul away to kill him. (And speaking of which, aren't the police at all concerned about the reappearance of the boy that brutally beat Felicia with a hockey stick?) CreePaul: "That's ridiculous. Why would Mike want to kill me?" Zana: "Because you murdered Mrs. Huber?" (Oh yeah! I guess the police have totally given up on that investigation, too. You know, I'm beginning to think the Fairview police department is a drug front.) CreePaul is all "WHAT did you say?" Zana explains that Mrs. Tillman also said something about how CreePaul murdered her sister, Mrs. Huber, because Mrs. Huber was blackmailing Mary Alice. CreePaul asks Zana if he believed any of Felicia's claptrap, and Zana says that he doesn't, not really. CreePaul tells Zana that, as the person who knows CreePaul best, he more than anyone knows that CreePaul is no murderer. Zana: "Of course, I didn't think mom was capable of suicide either." CreePaul: "On second thought, why don't we start with Much Ado About Nothing? I think we could use a few laughs around here."
