Penny lets her mom know that Tom still hasn't filed the divorce papers. Gregg continues to help Lynette make things difficult regarding Tom's relationship with Jane. Things are working out great until the bossman's latest move. Gregg is sending Tom out of town for awhile. Actually, he's transferring him to India for a year. This is devastating news for Lynette's Operation: Get Tom Back.
Carlos used to be a man of power, but he's been humbled by his 12-dollar an hour job trying to help recovering addicts. Gaby, on the other hand, is thriving in her position as a personal shopper. Dollar signs are cha-chinging in her eyes once she meets Doris (guest star Doris Roberts). The wealthy new widow is looking to spend her dead hubby's money. Gaby is just the person to help her do this. Actually, so is Carlos. He convinces Doris to donate gobs of cash to his charity. There goes Gaby's commission!
Gaby is furious with her hubby's altruistic attitude. She exacts her revenge by renovating his office to lead Doris to believe he spent the money she gave him in a less-than-ethical way. This leads to a big brouhaha between Gaby and Carlos. He accuses her of sabotaging his efforts of doing something that matters. She accuses him of being a shark that always needs to win. Perhaps that's true. Unfortunately, it's not who Carlos wants to be.
