So, Gabrielle goes to see Helen and confesses that she's nailing Miguel. Helen is not really very pleased about this whole thing. "I'm so sorry," Gabrielle says, although I think she's really just sorry that she got caught and that it's turned into a whole big dramatic thing. "For how long?" Helen asks. Gabrielle explains that it's been almost a year, but that it's over now. "So, when it started, he was...sixteen?" Helen asks. Gabrielle thinks so. "But Helen, you have to believe me. It's over now," she adds. Helen gets her mail and tells her that she's wrong. "It's not even close to being over," Helen says coolly, and goes inside.
At Posh Academy, Andrew is called into the coach's office. "Bet it's about my scholarship," he smarms to his swim-team buddies, and then runs in. I imagine that it's not so much about his scholarship as it is about the pot in his locker.
At home, KimberBree is cheerfully arranging flowers when the phone rings. "Marijuana in his locker? Oh, I'm just horrified," she trills. "There must be some mistake. Yeah, okay, I'll be right down," she says, and hangs up the phone and smiles. Beautifully done little moment. In fact, that little scene was so perfect, it inspired me to write a haiku: Marcia Cross? Divine/ Her sweater totally rules/ She is my idol.
So, elsewhere, some dude is making a toy box, much like the one Paul Young dug up and threw in the lake, so as to make it easier for the police to find and trace back to him. Speaking of the police, they come into the toy box maker's workshop, and start questioning the man.
Susan comes home to find Paul harassing Julie about Zack's whereabouts. He wants to see the letters Zack wrote her, he says. How does he even know those letters exist? Julie wails that the letters are private, but swears that they don't say anything about Zack running away. Susan backs the kid up, telling Paul that she'll let him know immediately if they hear from Zack. Paul makes a lot of aggrieved noises, until Susan finally steps in front of Julie and lays down the law: "Paul, my daughter doesn't lie." In response, Paul storms off to find a kitchen appliance to kill her with.
Box Maker's. This scene teaches us the following: one of the cops is a total Hey! It's That Guy!, who also looks a bit like James Denton; the box from the lake was a popular design, and although Box Maker has a list of customer names, it's going to take a while to get through them; the chest has been through hell; the chest had the body of an adult female stuffed inside it; said body was chopped up so as to get her in the box; there was also a big old hole in her skull. Well, then the woman clearly wasn't killed by Zack, since I doubt he could wield a shotgun at age four. And she probably wasn't killed by Paul since he couldn't possibly think of chopping the body up so as to best dispose of it. He would just leave it out for the garbage man.
