Meanwhile, over at the hospital, the hospital where perhaps Felicia is still staying? Does anyone remember Felicia? Rex's doctor is telling the life-insurance man -- Mr. Flannery, I guess? -- that he's having second thoughts about Rex's death: "I've known Rex and Bree for twenty years, and I've never had any reason to suspect they were anything but a happy, loving couple." But that's not true: he knew about the onion incident and he told Rex he thought Bree might be poisoning him, so clearly he did suspect that they might have been less than happy? Also, why would the doctor be bringing his suspicions to the insurance man, not the police? Though maybe the insurance man just happened to be the first person to start asking questions? I don't know. The doctor hands Mr. Flannery the "I forgive you" note Rex wrote for Bree as he was dying. Mr. Flannery reads it and says, "'I forgive you'?" The two of them exchange a long and very dramatic, arched-eyebrow sort of look. Music swells, etc.
Remember how you used to ply the unstable men of Wisteria Lane with banana bread and cookies, all the while gripping a steak knife under the table? Those were fun times, electric times. What happened to you? Are we in a fight? If I said something to upset you, please accept my apology and come back to me. I miss you!
Yours until Ivory soap sinks,
P.S.: Do you happen to know where Zana is now? How about CreePaul? I haven't seen either of them in ages and I'm starting to wonder if they're gone for good, or what? I don't really care, but you know...just curious!
Bree is out front planting some flowers when George drives up. Bree looks surprised to see him, and asks what he's doing there. "I'm here to kidnap you," he says, and for a second, he seems deadly serious. But then he adds, "I'm going to take you bowling." And the way he says "bowling" is entirely zany and also madcap. Bree is a little thrown and says, weakly, that she doesn't bowl. George (and his smile is HUGE here, the pumpkin smile of the truly unhinged) says that it doesn't have to be bowling; they can go to the movies or get frozen yogurt, whatevskis! Bree thanks him, but declines. He urges her to get out -- says it's been weeks since she's done anything (weeks, days, months, it's all the same on Wisteria Lane!), and that it'll do her good to get out. Bree says she's just not ready yet: "But it was very sweet of you to think of me." The delicate sadness with which she says this reveals just how much she'd be letting her grief out if Mommy Phyllis wasn't eclipsing the whole mourning process. George leans in and gives Bree a hug, and all in all it's a very sweet scene. If only George wasn't criminally insane, they might have been good friends to each other. Meanwhile: Phyllis spies this whole steamy hug scene through the upstairs window.
