In a flashback, we find out that Alma decided to leave Orson when she discovered he was having an affair. But instead of making him beg her to stay, he told her he didn't care if she left. That's when she realized she needed a better plan, to punish him.Alma, now returned from her stay in Canada, shows up on Bree's doorstep and introduces herself. She confesses that she wanted people to think she was dead, and that they'd blame Orson. Her goal was to make his mistress, Monique, scared of Orson, and leave him. But now she's found a guru who urged her to come clean. When Orson comes home, he's suspicious that she's up to more than making amends. Bree decides to throw a dinner party for her friends, with Alma as the surprise guest of honor, to prove that Orson's not a murderer.
