In Edie's house, Gabrielle is making useless grabs for the folder. When Edie offers to go away for a 60% share of the money, that gives Gabby the drive she needs to dive over the sofa, take Edie down, and run off with the papers. But outside, in the wind, Edie catches up to Gabby. They fight over the folder, and the papers scatter in the wind, blowing halfway to Mount Pleasant. Gabby grabs at the wind and screams at Edie, who has lost interest in the fight and is staring up at the sky, frozen in shock and terror. Finally she grabs wee little Gabby, points her body in the direction she's looking, and screams, "Get in the house, now!"
Mrs. McC, meanwhile, has tracked Toby to underneath what I assume is Edie's car, not that either Gabby or Edie noticed her coming. She tries to coax the cat out until Lynette drags her to her feet. Mrs. McC is the one to see what Edie saw. Lynette turns to look behind her, and that is one big, fat funnel cloud bearing down on them. They start to head back to Mrs. McC's, but they're cut off by suburban artillery fire in the form of metal barbecue grills and trash cans clattering to the street in front of them. So they do a 180 and dodge into Lynette's house instead. At least I think it's Lynette's house. I'm still new enough at this that I usually have to determine these things by who's inside and acting like they're at home.
Inside Edie's house, she tells Gabby that she thinks they can both fit in her crawl space. Still pissed about the money, Gabby doesn't want to share the small space with Edie until she hears something smash, and she boots her hostess inside ahead of her with a "Move your ass!"
Orson comes home in all this mayhem to find Katherine, Bree, Adam, and the baby still outside the Sylvia-filled bathroom. Bree tells him they can't get in, because there's a woman in there. "Well, tell her to hurry it up!" he snaps, cracking me up. Adam asks for five minutes, and Orson tells then about the funnel cloud right outside. They all duck into a handy storage closet instead.
Lynette and Mrs. McC hide under a twin mattress in Lynette's bathtub. Gabby and Edie squat in Edie's crawlspace, and Gabby apologizes to Edie for the way she and Carlos hurt her. Edie doesn't want any deathbed confessions. "When we get through this I'm going to go on hating you for years to come," she says. But then she realizes she doesn't hate Gabby; she's only mad at herself for letting herself fall for Carlos when she knew he'd go back to Gabby. A loud noise drives them into each other's arms, literally.
