Our lives are filled with surprises, whether good or bad. Susan, Lynette, Bree, and Gabby can all definitely relate to this, because "the mistakes of our past have a way of drifting back into our lives. And when they do, we have to pay for them." And the girls are no exception to the rule.
Carlos feels guilty and wants to tell police what happened with Victor on the boat, but Gabby is against it and thinks they can get away with playing dumb.
Mike's addiction has become a serious problem, as well as his happiness.
Bree, though not the biological mother of Benjamin, believes that because Andrew didn't turn out so well, she'd like to change the way she raises her new born. She wants him to sleep in the bed with she and Orson, every night.
Lynette calls around (mostly bars) to look for her mother who ran away last time they were together, but she’s nowhere to be found.
The police show up at Gabby’s house for questioning, and inform her that whoever was no the boat was not the brightest because they wiped down everything after the incident happened. Now the police know that Victor wasn’t on the boat alone.
Orson starts falling asleep at work because his entire family (all of three people) is sleeping in one bed.
Susan is just dying for her daughter Julie to go out with a nice, handsome boy who will treat her well. Ironically, Mike’s drug dealer is a pre-med student, the perfect candidate for Julie’s heart. Susan begins to match-make.
Mike, in desperate need for pain relief from his shoulder and his life, figures out a way to get his pills from Orson. “When I signed up for this suburban dad thing I didn’t know what I was getting myself into,” Mike complained.
Andrew realizes more and more that Bree is not only beginning a new life, but he needs to as well, and decides to move out. When telling Bree the news, he asks her “how are you going to get a fresh start with your past mistakes stinking up the place”
The police come to come to Gabby’ again for questioning and inform her that Victor has been found, and more importantly, he’s alive. Gabby is just ecstatic to visit him at the hospital, like a good wife.
Stella calls her ex-husband, Lynette’s step dad, for money. Glen tells Lynette, and they set up a plan for Lynette to ask Stella to move back in with her. Lynette also finds out that her step-dad left not because Stella cheated on him, but because he is gay.
Andrew moves into his apartment and his working on building himself a new life. He tells Bree that he forgave her a long time ago for leaving him on the side of the road when he was spinning out of control.
Stella says that she doesn’t want to move back in with Lynette because she doesn’t want to ruin their relationship. Glen invites her to live with him. She happily accepts.
Susan catches Mike taking more pills, and begins to have second thoughts about their future.
Gabby visit Victor at the hospital and he tells the police he doesn’t remember anything about what happened on the boat. As soon as the police are gone, he tells Gabby otherwise. He remembers everything, and he’s less than pleased about what his wife did to him.
