Don't Walk on the Grass
Season 6 | Episode 6 | Aired 11/1/09
Bree is about to break up with Karl, until he tells her he loves her and presents her with a broach that belonged to his grandmother. She wears it over to Susan's, and we groan when Susan immediately recognizes it. Bree insists on giving it back, saying pointedly in front of Karl, "I couldn't possibly wear it, knowing that Karl gave it to you." She lies that she found it at a nearby antique shop and that it was a "steal." She goes to break it off with Karl for good and we can't believe it when he gets on his knees and proposes! She's got issues with his ethics (we can't blame her), but he promises he'd be a better man as her husband. She agrees to keep the proposal pending, if he can get her that divorce she so badly wants. Things may be coming to a head soon: Orson goes to buy Bree a replacement broach but finds that the antique store where she supposedly bought the first one doesn't sell jewelry.
Katherine blackmails Susan and Mike into being friends by threatening to sue over Susan's having shot her. But the temporary truce falls apart after Katherine calls Mike to fix a leak and Susan, who rightly doesn't trust Katherine, finds her bedroom filled with lit candles, roses and champagne for two! We should have seen it coming that the two rivals would end up falling into the bubble bath! A dripping Susan emerges, telling Mike, "FYI, we hate her again."
