Bree's children bemoan her stuffy, formal dinners. So the family dines out at the Saddle Ranch Chop House, where Bree’s husband Rex shocks her by saying he wants a divorce. Instead of answering him, Bree fixes him a salad from the salad bar, where she accidentally piles on onions, which Rex is deathly allergic to. At the hospital, Rex tells her he's sick of her being so perfect all the time. Her response is to disappear into the bathroom to water his flowers, where she wipes away the tears before coming back out.
Mary Alice's teenage son, Zach, wakes up in the middle of the night to find his father, Paul, excavating something buried underneath the pool. We’re not sure what’s going on, but we do know that midnight pool excavations are rarely a good thing.
