They Asked Me Why I Believe In You

In a small, tearful voice, Bree says, "Right this way," and she turns and walks over to the new gravesite by the edge of the cemetery. The ladies exchange glances and then follow her. A backhoe has Rex's casket suspended over the hole. Bree motions to have it lowered, and Gabby asks Bree if she's sure she's not going to change her mind: "I mean, there's no turning back after this." Bree: "If you think I'm going to lay next to someone for eternity who thinks I'm a murderer, you're crazy. As far as I'm concerned, let him decompose with strangers." With her eyes closed, she pulls off her wedding ring and throws it at the casket. I, too, wonder if there won't be some time in the future when Bree might wish she had that ring -- to hock, or to give to Danielle? Huh. Bree, it appears, has lost her marbles. But it sure is nice to see all the ladies there, especially Edie. I'm totally into the "frank and bitchy voice of reason" she's adding to the group, and I'd say she's finally achieved official Housewife status.

And here comes MAVO, ready to wrap things up with a neat little bow: "Everyone in the world needs someone they can depend on, be they faithful friends..." The ladies all walk alongside Bree as she leaves the cemetery. MAVO: "...determined advocates..." Lawyer Bradley goes over some paperwork with Carlos. MAVO: "...or a loving family." Lynette strolls up to her house, wearing her work clothes. It's daylight, so it looks like she got off work super-early. Mr. Mom Tom is waiting for her on the porch with their wildly under-developed youngest, Penny (who is supposed to be well past age one but looks to be maybe six months old here). MAVO: "But occasionally in life, the people we thought would always be there for us...leave." Wally sits at home, alone, munching a pizza, and while I know it's supposed to be a lonesome, pitiable scene, it falls short for me because the pizza looks so good that all I feel is envy for him. MAVO: "And if that happens, it's amazing the lengths we'll go to, to get them back." The camera floats past framed photos of Mary Alice and Zana until we get to a very scruffy-looking CreePaul, who picks up a sinisterly sharp letter-opener and...opens a letter!

Next: Bree has a sleepover date with George, gross!
