Hello, Little Girl
Season 4 | Episode 413 | Aired 04/26/2008
Tom swears her he didn't torch Rick's restaurant, but Lynette's not convinced. Especially when Rick confronts Tom about a Scavo's matchbook found at the scene! The men end up in a fistfight that lands them at the local police station. Tom's only alibi is that he snuck away from the Founders' Ball to listen to a game on the car radio, so Lynette lies that she saw him there. Privately, she accuses Tom of setting the fire-- and he's convinced she slept with Rick-- although both swear their innocence. We're as shocked as Lynette when the twins admit that they're the arsonists! She doesn't know what to say when they tell her they did it to stop her from going away with him. It was supposed to be a loving gesture, then?
