We open on all the ways Tom Scavo has of lying to his wife. It's pertinent this week because trust is in short supply at the Scavo household. Lynette thinks Tom set the fire that burned down Rick's and Tom thinks Lynette and Rick slept together, in spite of Lynette's denials.
Eventually there's a confrontation between Tom and Rick at the Scavos' restaurant and they go at it right in front of the pizza dough. They end up in jail and Lynette does her own lying to give Tom a rock solid alibi.
Turns out Lynette should have trusted him because later, in a moment of rare honesty, the obnoxious Scavo twins admit to Lynette that because they were afraid Rick was going to break up the happy Scavo marriage, they set Rick's ablaze.
You just had to know that those Scavo kids were going to come to no good.
On the lighter side, a jealous Gabby feels threatened by Carlos' beloved new guide dog Roxie, once she finds out the dog doesn't do things like mani-pedis and facials. So Gabby takes Roxie back to the guide dog trainer while telling Carlos she ran away. When Edie gets a glimpse of Gabby's continued crappy treatment of Carlos, she sets her straight about how if Gabby doesn't watch it, another woman may be more than happy to tend to Carlos' needs. That forces Gabby to make peace with sweet, little Roxie.
Meanwhile, Bree, Orson and Little Ben are moving out of Susan's just in time for the return of Mike from Camp Rehab. Because her hormones are all whacked out, Susan gets more than a little emotional about that, but Queen Bree advises her to do what she does: shove any and all emotion into a tiny corner of her stomach and then go give the house a good dusting.
Kat asks Queen Bree to cater another event with her, since their Founder's Day Ball last week was such a hit. Bree agrees only after Kat makes it clear that no matter what, she'll do it anyway and steal all Bree's ideas.
Dylan gets pulled over by a state trooper wearing scary mirrored sunglasses. Whenever you see a character wearing those mirrored sunglasses you know they're up to no good. Anyway, Scary Trooper, Gary Cole pulls Dylan over because of some silly excuse and we discover he's the one who circled her picture in the paper last week.
He approaches her later and tells her he's her father. He admits he was an abusive husband, but that he's now reformed.
Dylan, sweetie, not wearing those sunglasses, he's not.
After a chit chat over coffee, he manipulates Dylan into continuing to meet with him without telling Kat. Oh, this can't end well.
Mike comes home from Camp Rehab just in time to find out from Julie that Orson was the one who tried to turn him into a human manhole cover. Mike confronts Orson and Orson cracks like an egg. That Camp Rehab stint did Mike a whole lot of good, 'cause without it I think he would have pummeled Orson into the ground like I would have. Instead he decides to forgive and forget.
When Mike confides what happened to Susan, she's not so forgiving. She goes tearing over to the Van De Camp house and rips into Orson right in front of a shocked Bree.
The next day, Susan goes to Bree while she's gardening and says she'll try to learn to forgive Orson but it's not going to happen overnight. So, if she's not chummy, chummy with the two of them for awhile, Bree will just have to understand. While Susan is making this little speech, Orson walks out of the house with a packed bag. Bree kicked him out.
Our final shot is of Orson, all alone in a crappy motel room---probably the same one Adam's staying at---sobbing like a baby.
