Perodic flashbacks to moving-in day on Wisteria Lane and how the control-freak Bree, the ambitious Lynette, the neurotic Susan, and the narcissistic Gabrielle met Mary Alice Young for the first time and how she brought them all together. ...See morePerodic flashbacks to moving-in day on Wisteria Lane and how the control-freak Bree, the ambitious Lynette, the neurotic Susan, and the narcissistic Gabrielle met Mary Alice Young for the first time and how she brought them all together. Other flashbacks show the day that Melanie Foster was murdered back in Chicago and the real reason behind her death, and how Betty decided to live a life on the lam rather than turn in her simpleton son Caleb. Meanwhile in the present, Bree checks herself into a psychiatric hospital, and later gets some frightening news when she learns that Danielle has run away with Matthew. Susan moves into a trailer after her house was burnt down, much to Julie's annoyance. Lynette takes her kids to stay at a motel after finding about Tom's 'other woman' in Atlantic City, but unaware to the real reason behind the woman's history. Elsewhere, Gabrielle briefly thinks that Carlos died after hearing a news report of an auto accident, but it turns on her suspicion's to his caring for Xiao Mei. Also, the imprisoned Paul begs Zach to get him a good lawyer via the dying Noah Taylor. But the unbalanced teenager instead decides to take matters into his own hands in order to sever all ties with his father, and his past life on Wisteria Lane for good. Written by Anonymous See less
