DeAnn Welker: B+ | Grade It Now!
Double Lives

Mary Alice picks back up on The Coffee Cup sign, saying the coffee shop is a place you can read your morning paper, meet your friends, have a cup of coffee at the end of a long day. The place was known for many things. She pulls out her keys and walks to the front to lock up when the door opens. We don't see who it is, but she smiles and says, "Oh, hey. Did you forget something?" The light is switched off and her smile fades. She asks what whoever is there is doing, and then hands reach out and strangle her.

Next episode: Lynette thinks there's no way Carlos will send her to Florida, and then we see a "We'll miss you, Lynette" farewell party at work. Carlos winks. There's a killer on the loose.

Then he asks who's the most desperate... of them all. Mike steps on Katherine's flower beds and tells her she's never seen him angry and doesn't know what he's capable of. Susan, watching from inside her house gasps, "Oh my god!" See you in two weeks. Have a happy Thanksgiving and days off and all of that.
