Lynette goes on the offensive when she starts feeling like Jane is stealing Penny away from her. She lays a major guilt trip on her daughter so she'll want to stay far, far away from her dad's new girlfriend. Tom isn't sure what's going on, but he invites Penny meet him at the park for a little one-on-one time. She never shows. Lynette realizes she's gone too far. She convinces Penny to go play ball with her dad. After her daughter leaves, Lynette can't help but bust out crying.

All of Susan's portraits are mocked by Andre during his portfolio review. Her technique is fine, but she never surprises him. Nevertheless, she's still getting an A-plus in his class. Susan's grade is a lie, but she's also been lying by hiding what's inside of her. Speaking of hiding things, Susan is finally told about the extracurricular activities her friends have been up to lately. And Gaby spills the beans about the note Bree got in her mailbox.

Now that all the ladies are all up to speed, they seem to be drifting further apart. Lynette's totally ticked and Susan lets loose to angrily paint a portrait. Andre is impressed at this magnificent piece of art that features four women standing over an open grave in the woods. Of course, the body that served as the inspiration for her work is no longer there. Mike buries it in a spot where concrete is laid the next day. Think he called Paul Young for some tips?
