Susan and Mike move back into their home on Wisteria Lane. When Susan attempts to visit Bree, Lynette and Gabrielle, each is preoccupied with personal matters and abruptly cuts the visit short. Susan returns home, visibly depressed. The other housewives, realizing they have upset her, visit her together and announce a progressive dinner party to celebrate her return, moving from house to house.
Bree and Renee shop at the boutique run by Chuck's soon-to-be ex-wife; Bree hopes that making a large purchase will encourage her to more rapidly agree to the divorce terms. Instead, Bree and Renee inadvertently tip Doreen off to Bree's dating Chuck; while Doreen expresses sympathy, she uses her knowledge of the romance to make additional property demands.
After Gabrielle's abusive stepfather Alejandro follows her in his car and trails her into a wooded area, she holds him at gunpoint and forces him to admit he raped her when she was a teenager. She allows him to leave, telling him never to contact her again. She later tells Carlos that she nearly killed him, but was satisfied by simply having been able to do so.
That night, while hosting drinks and appetizers, Renee learns her ex-husband is remarrying. She quickly gets very drunk and strikes up a brief "relationship" with the bartender she hired for the evening.
Lynette returns home to prepare the salad course. When Tom is not there, she concludes that he has moved out. When he arrives home from a brief shopping trip, the two discuss their estrangement. Lynette tells Tom that the main emotion she felt when believing he had left her was relief. The couple agree to separate.
Chuck tells Bree that he has agreed to Doreen's increased demands to allow them to move on in their relationship. They go to Bree's home and make love, so distracted that Bree allows the dinner's main course to burn. The guests arrive almost immediately, and the semi-dressed couple makes excuses, to the evident amusement of the others.
Gabrielle goes to her house to prepare the dessert course. Alejandro emerges from hiding, implies he has taken her gun, and accosts her, apparently intending rape. Carlos returns home and strikes Alejandro in the head with a candlestick, killing him. Bree, Susan and Lynette see the body, as Carlos discovers Alejandro did not have the gun. Carlos fears being sent to prison for killing an unarmed man. Bree takes the lead in covering up evidence of the killing in the short time before the remaining guests arrive. As the episode ends, Carlos has apparently forgiven Bree concealing her own son's responsibility for the hit-and-run death of Carlos's mother. Alejandro's body has apparently been hidden inside the storage chest which serves as the centerpiece of the evening's final course.
