And it's time for the MAVO summary! "Everyone enjoys a game of make-believe now and then. Of course, the ways in which we play can vary greatly." We see the girls from the endless tea scene at the top of the show, still with their fantasy tea. "Sometimes we tell ourselves work won't interfere with our family." Lynette sits at her desk at work and looks at a photo of herself hugging Little Big P. (Does she have individual photos of all her kids on her desk?) "Sometimes we imagine certain relationships to be more meaningful than they really are." Gabby jogs past Gardener John as he gardens someone's lawn, and he looks wistfully after her retreating form. "Occasionally we put on a show, as if to convince ourselves our secrets really aren't really all that terrible." The Appleplights assemble yet another plate of food for the Basement Buddy, and Matthew pulls out the gun. "Yes, the game of make-believe is a simple one." George is getting lie-detected as the policeman and Bree looks on. Lie Man asks George if he knew Rex Van De Kamp, and he says he did. Did Mrs. Van De Kamp ask him to poison Rex? No, she did not. Did George poison Rex? No he didn't. This bald-faced lie registers nary a blip on the polygraph. Huh. Either George is a psychopath, or he's insanely sedated, or he...has no pulse? MAVO: "You start by lying to yourself. And if you can get others to believe those lies, you win." George smiles directly at Bree through the two-way mirror. How does he do it? How did he know exactly where she would be standing?! George is a magic man. A crazy, crazy magic man.
Next week: George sends Andrew to his room, Gabby causes a prison riot, and Susan has something weird on her face.
