Mary Alice starts to talk about desire: Porter's for Anne, causing him to make foolish choices. Grandma Nutjob's for family, causing her to act out in anger. Katherine's for Mike (and to not be lonely), causing her to behave recklessly. And the doctor's for Mike. We know this as he books his flight to Fairview. The key, I think, is in Mary Alice's exact words: "And when the pursuit of our heart's desire becomes an obsession, the best we can hope for is a caring friend willing to come along... and stop us." So, Dr. Heller clearly knows what Creepy Dave's up to in Fairview and has to get there to stop him from doing whatever it is he's going to do to Mike.
Next week: Gaby wants "Grandma Screwloose" out of their lives, but Carlos tells her they're her sole heirs. Not worth it. In any way. Lynette asks Anne if she's really pregnant, and Mr. Schilling hears it and isn't happy. But he doesn't seem angry or violent. Julie's here, and she's apparently dating Steven Weber, but Susan doesn't want her to be someone's fourth wife. A reporter hates Bree, because she thinks Bree's a sham. Then a fire breaks out on stage during Battle of the Bands. We see Carlos and Mike both fall to the ground, and then see Edie telling a firefighter that her husband's inside and he has to go back in there. Ooh, the drama. Will Creepy Dave die? I'm thinking not, unless they want to wrap up his mystery and start a new one in one episode. Though if they could somehow kill him off and make the doctor the new mystery, I'd be impressed.
