MAVO picks back up as Destiny pole-dances. "The act itself is quite simple. You strip away the outer layer and reveal what's underneath. Of course, sometimes the results can be quite surprising." Cut to Tom drinking his bottle of wine on the porch as she says, "If you strip away the veneer of happy domesticity, you may find grief." Gaby picks up a fancy dress as MAVO says, "If you strip away that façade of wealth, you may find self-loathing." A tired Bree serves Orson crème brulée as Mary Alice says, "If you strip away the veil of helplessness, you may find cruelty." Finally, Susan strips for Mike (as the music intensifies, for some reason, which made me expect it to go to Danny doing something creepy instead of this), and MAVO finishes: "Yes, stripping can be a dangerous pastime, but for a lucky few, it can also be a lot of fun." Susan throws her bra at a smiling Mike.
Next week: Announcer guy says it's the episode that tells it like it is. Bree says Orson stinks. He calls her a whore. She sprays him with a hose. Announcer guy says they can't take it anymore. Gaby needs to know if Juanita's going to succeed in life, but the headmaster reminds her she's only seven. Announcer guy says the dirty laundry's piling up and everyone's hung out to dry. Tom tells Bob and Lee that Lynette never wants to talk, and she asks if they can just drop it. Announcer guy says, "Including one neighbor they never thought they'd see again." Really? They thought Katherine would never come back, ever? That's just dumb.
