.: Review:.

Susan wonders why Dr. Ron hasn't made a move after three dates and he tells her it wouldn't be ethical while he's her doctor. She needs a spleenectomy and she gets nervous when she hears it'll be his first time performing the procedure. She tells him over dinner that she wants a different doctor. He gets mad and storms out, so she waits for him at the hospital to tell him she's done jumping through hoops to keep a guy. But he tells her she missed a delivery of flowers and champagne -- his apology. He says he doesn't want to lose her and that it's better anyway if he's not her doctor anymore.

Sister Mary has returned and Carlos confides that he's upset that Gabrielle still refuses to have children. So the nun tells him he can get an annulment. The next time the baby issue comes up, Carlos shows her the pamphlet on annulment. She knows the nun is behind it, so Gabrielle tells Father Crowley that Sister Mary is trying to break up her marriage. When he asks if she's sure that the Sister and Carlos have been sleeping together, she lies and says "Yes." The Father arranges for Sister Mary to be transferred to Alaska. Carlos is furious when he hears about it, but Gabrielle says she should be mad at him, not Sister Mary. She says he needs to choose between her and having a baby and he chooses her. And then she smiles and tells him she does want to have a baby with him.

When Tom finds out Lynette's firm needs to hire a new ad exec, he tells her he wants the job. She says them working together would be a bad idea. So he shows up for a job interview as "Tom Cavos" and she pulls him aside to ask what he thinks he's doing. He says that a little part of him has been hating her since she got his promotion revoked at his old job and that she owes him a shot at least. Her boss, Ed, loves him and offers him the job on the spot. That night, Lynette says she told Ed the truth and he still wants to hire him. But she says first he needs to never mention the promotion thing again -- and she needs him to forgive her. He tells her he already had.

Matthew insists that Caleb be allowed to live in an upstairs bedroom and not continue to be kept chained in the basement. Betty doesn't like the idea, but she agrees, as long as the windows stay covered up.

Bree catches Matthew hiding under Danielle's bed -- she'd interrupted their makeout session -- and promptly marches them both over to Betty's. Betty slaps her son and insists there won't be a problem because they're moving.

Danielle is inconsolable so Bree suggests to Betty that they chaperone the two kids instead of forbidding them to see each other. But as she's talking to Betty, she sees Caleb peeking out of the upstairs window. Bree hastily excuses herself. She combs through old newspapers and confirms that the man she saw is the same one who was arrested for breaking into Gabrielle's house. She calls all her friends, leaving a message that she's found out something big about the Applewhites and she'll tell them more at tonight's poker game. Gabrielle overhears and sends a note to Matthew. She tells him it's OK he has a secret, because her family has a big one too. And she proceeds to tell him about Andrew running down Mrs. Solis.

It's just about time for the poker game and Bree is surprised to find Betty at her front door. She tells her it's not a good time, but Betty insists they talk now. She explains that if Bree says anything about him to anyone, Betty will expose the truth about Andrew's hit-and-run. So when everyone else shows up, Bree has no choice but to lie and say her "big news" about the Applewhites is that Betty is a great poker player and that she's now joining their weekly game.
