Lynette is upset when she learns Tom's new lady friend, Jane, wants to make Penny a Halloween costume. Lynette puts the kibosh on that notion by saying she's already started making Penny's costume. She hasn't. She just doesn't want Jane doing it. The problem is that Lynette doesn't really want to do it either. So she pays a New York costume designer to overnight a cool cat outfit for her daughter. It's the purr-fect plan!
Penny's cat costume is incredible. And by that we mean it's incredibly inappropriate. Jane offers to put together a little skirt that will make the way-too-sexy-for-a-tween outfit a little more conservative. She's actually a pretty nice lady. In a different situation, Lynette and Jane could probably be friends. But that's never going to happen as long this woman is radar-locked on Tom.
