Jackson and Susan plan an engagement party to give themselves some photos to put in the albums they'll need in case immigration comes calling to deport him. They announce the engagement to the neighborhood, and Mike's unpleasantly surprised, although he says he's happy not to pay alimony anymore. Susan goes to confess the real reason for the marriage to Katherine, who is on the phone with Creepy Dave at the time. Creepy Dave hears it all and reports Jackson to immigration. At the end of the episode, he's taken away, just before he and Susan are to be married. Gale Harold better not be gone again. A girl's heart can only handle so much. Oh, and Mike proposes to Katherine while he thinks Susan and Jackson's marriage is real, but he's really still in love with Susan. It's all leading up to a finale in which Creepy Dave tries to kill Mike, I think.
Meanwhile, Bree continues to try to divorce Orson. Karl talks her into robbing her own house, which she does quite well. Orson gets all sweet about replacing a mask they got in Italy, but by the end he finds her storage unit and knows she's the robber. My, how the tables have turned. Gaby learns a valuable lesson about money by going to a soup kitchen (not to volunteer or anything; she wants Juanita to learn the value of money, but doesn't want to learn it herself). She sees a woman there who used to be rich, and wonders how she lost everything. The woman tells her it can happen to anyone. Maybe Gaby will stop spending like the old Gaby. But I wouldn't count on it. Finally, Tom realizes he's too old to get a job, and decides to get plastic surgery. Lynette tries to talk him out of it, but he insists until she traces their life on his wrinkles and tells him how she sees everything there, and wants them to look like each other. She also enlists the help of a co-worker who had a bad facelift, as an example of what not to do. It's a fun, light episode leading to next week's darker, two-hour finale.
Previously: Creepy Dave locked Jackson in the bathroom during the fire, but Jackson survived. And then, last week, he and Susan decided to get married, forcing Creepy Dave to change his fishing plans. Tom had a midlife crisis. Gaby was glad to be back to the old Carlos and Gaby. Bree enlisted Karl's help divorcing Orson, so that he won't get anything that he deserves. She told him she's capable of doing whatever needs to be done.
We get mystery romance music as Mary Alice tells us the lawyer (Karl) arrived after sundown, where he met with his client (Bree). It's all sort of noir and seductive, played with music and Mary Alice's narration. The basics are that he suggested a secret bank account and a second set of books. She agrees to everything, until he makes a final suggestion and she spits her drink all over him. He wanted her to rob her own house, or to have one of his "associates" do it. She's not up for that, so Karl reminds her that Orson will get half of everything. Bree asks if it wouldn't be easier just to have Orson killed. Karl says he can't condone that, but he does know someone... He says he's just kidding, and then he gets her to close her eyes and asks her to picture Orson owning half of everything and meeting a new young bimbo. Bree agrees to commit the self-robbery, and even helpfully offers that they break a window to make it look more real.
Mary Alice talks about masks, which can be found in any home. Some are used on Halloween (at the Scavo's, for instance). Some are needed to protect yourself from paint fumes (Mike's). And some are applied every other Thursday (Gaby). Then there is a mask that some men (Creepy Dave) wear every day: It's a friendly smile hiding his wicked intentions. Creepy Dave approaches Susan's house, where MJ's in the front yard. Creepy Dave grills MJ about Jackson. He wants to know if he ever talks about the fire or anybody he saw that night. MJ says no. He also tells Creepy Dave the police haven't stopped by, so Creepy Dave asks him to let him know if they do. MJ asks why, and Creepy Dave says he wants to make sure they're being nice to Jackson, because he's such a good guy. MJ agrees.
Gaby talks about how beautiful a totally plain vase is to Celia, who nods yes at everything Gaby says or asks: that the vase is beautiful, that she'll use her as a human shield when Carlos finds out what it costs. Gaby realizes all of the agreeing probably means she should get Celia tested. She's no Juanita, that's for sure. Speaking of, Juanita comes in from her play date, and she wants a canopy bed since the friend she was just with has one. Gaby tells her to move in with her friend, since she's not getting her one. Juanita asks, "Why not?! We're rich!" Gaby asks who told her that, and Juanita says she heard Gaby bragging about it to Bree. Gaby says she's not buying the bed, because she's not spending money on something that Juanita doesn't need. Juanita: "Oh, but you can spend millions of dollars on a stupid vase?" Gaby doesn't deny spending millions on it, but just says it's not stupid. So Juanita asks Celia if it's stupid and Celia, of course, nods in agreement. Gaby sends Juanita to her room, and then sends Bobblehead along after her.
