Gabby's carrying boxes through the house in her workout clothes, and she's pretty startled to find Victor's dad, Milton, sitting there. Apparently, he heard Gabby's message before Victor did and erased it, and he's come back from D.C. to tell her that she can't leave Victor when he's about to run for governor. He also waves a big check at her, which predictably offends her until, predictably, she sees the huge amount on it. Which we don't get to see, because this billionaire writes with a shitty ballpoint with ink that doesn't show up on TV. Gabby also notices that it's dated next year, meaning she has to stay married to Victor through next year -- and the election -- if she wants the money. Somehow, Gabby still claims the moral high ground, mocking Milton for wanting to push Victor all the way to the presidency. Milton doesn't exactly deny it. Because people who run for president for their dads have worked out so well.
At the IRS, Edie is finding out that the investigators struck out; Carlos's offshore account doesn't exist. So she goes to confront Carlos (who is somehow still moving, even as Edie's entire IRS investigation has already been completed), demanding to know what happened to the $10 million. He denies it extra-loud, for the benefit of any wire Edie might be wearing, and asks why Edie would care about it if she weren't planning to use it against him. Edie flusters at him, and says it's not over. Carlos calmly says it is, and he won. Oh, Carlos. You were married to Gabby how long and you still don't know how to not poke the crazy?
Lynette has run out of ideas for dealing with the possum, so she's come to Bree for help. Not for suggestions, mind you; but for a gun. Bree warns Lynette that the town council has banned live ammo, but an air rifle will sting the possum away for good. "Try Gun City on Route 6 next to the Baptist Church," Bree says. "Tell 'em I sent you, and they'll give you a nice discount." Lynette thanks her and heads off, trying to prevent her brain from playing some of the stories it must be playing right now.
