The strangulation murder of a waitress leads everyone to suspect that Julie's unknown attacker is responsible. We catch a glimpse of the killer, or at least, his brown loafers, and we try to figure out if we've ever seen those shoes before.
Lynette is sure that Carlos isn't serious about relocating her to Florida, not until the staff throws her a "Bon Voyage" party and he gives her old office away. "We have an opening for you in our Florida office, but here your job's already been given to Tim," Carlos tells her, adding, "I guess this gives you no choice but to quit."
Lynette begs Gaby to talk to Carlos but Gaby refuses. But later that night, Gaby talks Carlos into forgiving Lynette, just as Lynette decides to sue Carlos for all he's worth! The next day, Gaby shows up with flowers as a peace offering, but we cringe when Lynette's lawyer pulls up with notice of the lawsuit at the same moment.
Carlos next move is to give Lynette an impossible assignment he demands be ready by 9 a.m. the next day. She's an hour late with completing her task, so Carlos, with his lawyer by his side, orders her to clear out her desk. Lynette promises, "I will not go quietly." And we wince when he tells her, "I don't care how you go. I just want you gone."
