Katherine comes home to find Dylan on the laptop, doing her genealogy project. When she finds out Dylan is researching her dad, she freaks and slams the laptop hard enough to nearly cost Dylan a finger. Which would put a dent in her cello career. But Dylan's done being bullied, especially now that she knows Katherine talked about her dad at game night. She physically prevents Katherine's next attempt to close the laptop, shoving her away and daring her to slap her again or kick her out of the house. "I am officially no longer afraid of you," she says. Katherine needs a new tactic.
Susan's over at Bree's house, and Bree doesn't seem as convinced as Susan was about Mike's story. She gives Susan a little tour of her former hiding places for booze and advises Susan, "Trust but verify." So Susan goes home and gets to work verifying. If by "verify" you mean "ransack." Susan is all sweaty and exhausted and just about to give up when one of Mike's flashlights doesn't work. And why might that be? Well, you have to put the batteries in right. And they have to be the right kind of batters. And they have to actually be batteries, and not a freezer bag full of painkillers, which is what Susan finds inside the light. So really, she neither trusted nor verified.
Lynette has decided that she and her mom need to go have "lunch" with Lynette's sister Lydia. Lydia, of course, is not having it. The minute Stella gets up from the table, Lydia tells Lynette that their mom made her crazy when she lived with her, and when she moved out she got her life back. Except Lynette notices that Lydia seems to be saying all this in therapy-speak, and busts her for reading affirmations off of index cards. She snatches them away, and realizes that Lydia's serious about not taking her mom back. Not that that keeps her from lying, "She's totally not like that anymore," when Lucy mentions the time Stella brought home a guy from a bar. Lynette appears to let it go, and tosses the index cards back so they fall on the floor. And while Lydia is bent over picking them up, Lynette grabs Lydia's car remote and pops the trunk on her sister's car. Stella returns and starts in on Lydia's hair, so neither of them notice that instead of going to look for the waiter like she claimed, Lynette has run outside, taken her mom's luggage from her trunk, put it in Lucy's trunk, and driven off. All of this so we can see through the front window, while neither of the other two women notice. Thank God Lynette's cancer-free, so I can go back to hating her without feeling bad about it.
