Down at the hospital, a now completely mute and paralyzed but still totally conscious Gloria sits stoically in her hospital bed. Orson comes in and tells her that she's finally got the life in prison she deserves -- well, that was a little stroke of good luck! -- and then he turns her head so that she can see him walking down the hospital corridor and out of her life forever. I'd say that they've left Gloria dangerously poised for a grand recovery, but that would be too far-fetched for this show. Oh wait.
And now for the MAVO summary: "A surprising thing happened to Orson Hodge as he left Fairview Memorial Hospital: his life began to flash before his eyes. But it wasn't his past he saw. It was his future. Ordinary suburban days, filled with ordinary suburban moments, each made beautiful because of the housewife by his side." We see Orson smiling as he watches TV, polishes the silver, and gazes into the sunset with a big red head of hair -- obviously Marcia Cross's body double, but something about the way they show only the back of her head reminds me of Bobby Hill's love affair with a mannequin head. MAVO: "Yes, Orson could finally envision a life free from secrets and pain, and he couldn't wait for it to begin." Orson opens his front door and, smiling hugely, yells, "Honey, I'm home!"
Up next: Edie's son finally, finally makes an appearance, Danielle is pregnant, and Orson and Bree take off on their "honeymoon," i.e. Marcia Cross takes off on some maternity leave.
