The Sun Won't Set

Mike, at home, sits down with the paper and a hot beverage, but then Bongo starts growling and gets up and goes to the door. Mike walks over to check things out, and in the unforgiving glare of Mrs. McCluskey's floodlights, Mike spots Caleb running up Wisteria Lane in some huge panic (I'm not really sure why suddenly he's running after being quietly in hiding for days, but...okay). Caleb is trying and failing to get into one of the cars parked along the street. Mike runs out and tackles Caleb. Mrs. McCluskey is there, suddenly, helpfully offering to tase Caleb, but Mike tells her just to call the police.

Cut to cuffed Caleb being put into a police car by two policemen. All the Wisterians are gathered around, and Mike asks Gabby if Caleb is her Ice Cream Man. The cops shine a flashlight in Caleb's face, and Gabby sadly IDs him as the intruder. MAVO: "In a world filled with darkness, we all need some kind of light." I'm not sure what MA is going for here. Is she talking about the cop's flashlight? Cut to what appears to be a Porsche engulfed in a wall of flames. MAVO: "Whether it's a great flame that shows us how to win back what we've lost": we see George, holding Bree's ring, his face lit by the warm glow of his signature Car Fire of Jealousy. MAVO: "Or a powerful beacon intended to scare away potential monsters": we see Mr. Mom Tom watching as the P-twins play ball in the soothing glare of Mrs. McCluskey's floodlights. MAVO: "Or a few glowing bulbs that reveal to us the hidden truth of our past": an older, father-type man (played by archetypal dad Hey! It's That Guy! Paul Dooley) is locking up "Prudy's Feed Store" as Susan looks on from a car. (Sadly, there's a "Help Wanted" sign in the store window, so I can guess where that's headed: Susan covered in a truck-load of bird seed.) MAVO: "We all need something to help us get through the night": Caleb looks nervously out at all the neighbors as the cop car slowly pulls away. "...even if it's just the tiniest glimmer of hope": as the police car passes Betty, she puts her fingers to her pursed mouth and Caleb nods his understanding of the "shhh." Gee, I wonder if any of the neighbors spotted that not-at-all smooth move of Betty's? That would be awkward.

And that's it! Not a peep out of Edie, and no news at all about Dr. Goldfine. Dr. Goldfine? Dr. Goldfine? Paging Dr. Goldfine!

Next week: Carlos is free and Bree shoots George's mobile karaoke machine!
