Susan's hosing down the RV when frantic Tom walks up and asks her if she knows where Lynette is. She tells him she doesn't, but he isn't buying it. But, try as Tom may, Susan isn't spilling the beans about Lynette's hidden hideaway. Tom, who sounds like he's on the edge of tears, asks Susan at least to tell Lynette to call him. Susan is moved. The second Tom gets out of range, she calls Lynette and advises her that maybe it's time for her to give Tom a call. Lynette mournfully tells Susan that she "just can't." On of the Ps comes up to Lynette, and Lynette hastily gets off the phone with Susan. P wonders when Daddy's going to join them, because he wants to show Tom his new dive. (Apparently, Lynette is staying at a hotel -- one with a pool.) Lynette tells P that Daddy's not coming, but she's more than happy to admire his dive. P slinks away, dejected.
Down at the county jail, an orange-outfitted CreePaul is on the glass-separated phone with Zana. CreePaul insists that Zana get some money from Noah so that CreePaul can hire a fancy lawyer. Zana objects that Noah totally "creeps [him] out," but CreePaul keeps pushing. Zana doesn't think Noah will go for it, what with the old man hating CreePaul so thoroughly, so CreePaul just tells Zana to lie and say he needs the money to pay for a fancy new car. This from the man who once so strenuously objected to having Zana fraternize with the evil bio-granddad? I would have thought CreePaul would have sold the house before he sent his son to someone like Noah. Zana wonders why CreePaul even needs the money: "I thought only guilty men needed expensive lawyers." Really? Huh. CreePaul refers to the strength of Felicia's finger trap; then he worries that the police might start digging into Mrs. Huber's murder, too --maybe even do a DNA comparison. Zana is all, "Hold up, you told me you had nothing to do with Mrs. Huber's head getting bashed in with a blender." CreePaul, catching himself, lies unconvincingly that he's totally innocent of that crime, too. Zana is doubtful. CreePaul commands Zana to do as he says. Zana, bitterly: "You're not my real father." Even though Zana oh-so-recently described CreePaul as his true dad, "the only man [he'll] ever care about." CreePaul starts ranting about how ungrateful Zana is, considering that CreePaul rescued the lad from a "miserable junkie," and gave Zana "a life worth living": "If you won't do it for me, at least do it for your mother. After all, she killed herself trying to protect you." Huh? I thought she killed herself out of guilt? In any case, Zana's response to CreePaul's misguided tirade is to just hang up the phone. I'm confused. The last time I checked, these two were actually on friendly terms. Then this scene comes along, and it's like Season 2 never, ever happened. Magic! The magic of herky-jerky character development.
