Karen McCluskey's condition has gotten to the point where she needs to receive hospice care. Roy simply can't handle her substantial needs even though Karen wants to die in her own home. That's fine. There are four ladies on Wisteria Lane who can help. Bree, Lynette, Susan and Gaby aren't about to let Karen go anywhere. They'll be there for her right up until the end. Karen realizes these women are more than just her neighbors. They are her very dear friends.
Bree's murder trial seems to be growing more sensational by the day. Carlos wants to come clean, but Gaby convinces him to ride things out a little longer. Ben is called to testify, but he's held in contempt when he refuses to answer the prosecution's questions, even though there's a recording where he and Bree discuss putting a body in the ground. Renee tells an incarcerated Ben that she remembers some details about the night of the murder. She has no idea the prosecutor is listening to their entire conversation.
The prosecutor threatens to deport Ben back to Australia unless Renee spills what she knows. She has no choice but to say she saw a disheveled Bree carrying a shovel the night of the murder. Not good. Tripp lets Bree know that she's in serious trouble. Then he kisses her. Moments later, Bree spills all the details of what happened the night Alejandro died. She makes Tripp promise to not use this information against her friends. It's a promise he can't keep.
