Lynette and Tom are just getting home from the cancer doctor, and both Tom and Lynette's mom Stella are talking about how optimistic the doctors are about the PET scan she just had. All Lynette cares about, however, is a fresh hole she's just spotted in the garden, and she freaks out all over both of them. "I can't believe you didn't tell me we have a possum!" she bellows, and storms off. So now she's a possum bitch?
Mike gets home late from work and wisely pops a couple of pills before getting out of his truck and trying to sneak into bed without waking up Susan. Which doesn't work at all, of course. Sitting up in bed, Susan wants an explanation. "My father's in prison for murder," Mike says. "So can you see how I would have wanted to lie about him on a first date?" Again, which first date? Didn't they have several? Maybe he could have told the truth on just one of them. Mike admits that he visits his dad a few times a year, which kind of makes it even odder that it's never come up before. Susan, of course, wants to meet him, and drama-queens that it's because of the family medical history they need for the genetic counseling. It's for the baby, you know, and not because Susan is genetically incapable of ever letting anything go. Maybe she should be worried more about passing that gene on.
Lynette has returned from the garden center with everything you need to wage war on a possum. Whichever kid it is she's talking to now, who until two seconds ago was thrilled that his mom's cancer battle is looking up, is quickly disappointed to learn the Lynette is out for the head of "Scruffles." In fact, Lynette is so unpleasant about it that the kid probably preferred her before the cancer started getting better.
Over at Bree's, she's gone back on her deal and decided to send Danielle back to the convent instead of letting her stay. Danielle complains, but her heart isn't in it. She just wants to eject the parasite feeding on her systems. Bree tries to have a heart-to-heart about how hard it might end up being for Danielle to give up her baby when the time comes, but Danielle isn't too worried about that. She assures Bree that she's nothing like her mother, which Bree is kind of tired of hearing by now. She says she looks forward to the day when Danielle shows some "glimmer" of herself. Which she will live to regret, if only because Danielle will soon prove to be unaware of what "glimmer" actually means.
