Julie is leaving to spend the weekend with her dad, and Susan is walking them to his car. Julie reminds Susan to go feed Bongo over at Mike's and Susan is all, oh yeah! Must Julie think of everything, Susan? Karl shoos Julie off to go sit in the car while he talks some stuff over with Susan, then he taunts Susan for living in sin with the plumber/ex-con. Susan: "It's funny you should mention sin. I think adultery still falls in that category." Nonetheless! Karl doesn't like the idea of a wicked man such as Mike hanging around his daughter. Susan: "He's a good person." Julie, calling out from the car: "Mike's cool, Dad, he cares about us a lot and I like having him around, so don't mess this up." Susan: "You heard the girl." Karl, walking to the car: "He's still a plumber." Susan laughs the laugh of someone so very over her ex-husband. Finally.
Susan walks across the street and lets herself into Mike's house. Bongo the dog jumps up and barks at her, and she says something about him being good or he's going to bed without supper. And then out strolls Zana, Mike's gun in hand, his shirt tucked 20,000-leagues deep into his pants. "Hi, Mrs. Mayer," he says ominously, and then he gestures with the gun for Susan to sit down and the music swells. Commercial!
Susan and Zana are sitting in Mike's house, staring at each other in silence. Slowly Susan looks around the room for potential defense weaponry. She spots the knife rack sitting by a plate of old cheese rinds, she sees a towering black vase by the window, and there, sitting on a side table, is a sharp set of deer antlers. (Kudos, Mike, on the insane decorating style.) Sly Susan tells Zana that she's just going to grab some water, but Zana leaps up, points the gun directly at her, and tells her he'd rather she didn't. And then Edie knocks at the door, and Zana tells Susan not to answer it. But Edie peeks in one of the windows and spots Susan sitting at the table, and Susan kind of hunches down like maybe if she sits two inches lower in her chair, Edie will un-see her. "I know you're in there, Susan," Edie yells through the window, "I can see you!" Susan puts her hand up and grimaces. "If you don't want to talk to me, then fine, at least have the courtesy to hide!" Ha! Edie glares at Susan and then goes back to knocking on the front door.
