When Nina delivers another scathing critique, Lynette snaps and tells her she owes the group an apology. But her coworkers refuse to back her up. When she goes into work late, she finds the office gofer, Stu, and Nina in an amorous clinch. The next morning, an embarrassed Nina wants to find out what it'll take to keep Lynette quiet. She turns down a raise and a bigger office and just asks that Nina be nice to her.
Instead, Nina removes her leverage by firing Stu, and threatening to fire Lynette too if she doesn't toe the line. Lynette calls up Stu and mentions that he can now sue the company for sexual harassment. When she shows up at work the next day, the big boss, Ed, has fired Nina and all of her team, except for Lynette, whom he's giving Nina's old job.
On her way out, Nina warns her that she's just adopted a bigger baby in the demanding Ed than any she has at home.
Carlos is given early parole, thanks to the work of a Catholic charity, and Gabrielle is alarmed to see that the nun behind the parole is one Sister Mary Margaret, a worrisomely attractive blonde. Suddenly Carlos is ultra religious, and seeing far too much of the pretty Sister. Gabrielle tells the nun that she and Carlos need time alone to save their marriage and Mary Margaret says that Carlos's criminal record is all Gabrielle's fault, and that she won't stop her efforts to redeem Carlos.
Susan goes to see, Mr. Purdy, whom she's just learned is her father. She takes such a liking to him, she decides to apply for a job at his store to get to know him better, her plan being to tell him the truth down the road. He becomes suspicious of why such an attractive woman is so interested in him and accuses her of being hired by his wife to ensnare him. She blurts out the truth and he collapses. At the hospital, he says he's sorry, but getting to know her would jeopardize his marriage. She refuses to leave, so she's still there when his wife arrives. She lies and says she was just a customer who called 911. Before she leaves, she whispers to him that she's not giving up yet.
George interrupts a dinner party Bree is hosting by serenading her loudly. When he won't leave she calmly goes upstairs and gets her rifle and shoots at his van.
The next day he just "happens" to ride by her house on his bike and tells her he can't stand her thinking he's a bad person. She goes to visit Dr. Goldfine, who's in the hospital with some broken limbs but otherwise unharmed from being thrown off the bridge. He tells her his assailant rode a bike and she suddenly realizes that George is responsible.
George is on his way home when he sees the police conducting a search. He calls Bree and she tells him to get help. Instead, he checks into a hotel, the same hotel where she is co-chairing a charity event. He sends her a note that he's taken a fatal dose of pills and that if she cares about him, she'll come to his room. Instead she calls the police, who inform her that in their search, they've found evidence that George poisoned Rex.
In shock, Bree goes up to George's room. She finds him lying on the bed, nearly out from the pills. She says she can forgive him if he admits to what he did. He finally says whatever he did, he did for her -- because she wanted him to. And then he asks her to please call an ambulance. She smiles and tells him she already did. Instead, she just sits and waits. And then she calmly walks out of the room.
