Unbeknownst to Susan, Mike is the man responsible for the break-in. He meets an older man in a park and they discuss his progress investigating the residents of Wisteria Lane. While out on a date with the cop, Susan sees the screwdriver he supposedly submitted as evidence. Susan realizes he's the "Karl," and walks away from him, in the middle of a crime-ridden neighborhood. She has to borrow a prostitute's cell phone to call Julie and ask her to get someone to pick her up. It's Mike who shows up to her rescue, and he's secretly relieved to find out that that screwdriver never went to the lab. When he drops her off, she says she's frustrated she doesn't know him better. His answer: he leans in a for a kiss.
