"In just a few days, one of these people will be dead." These are the ominous words of Mary Alice Young as we catch glimpses of some old friends on Wisteria Lane. Who is Mary Alice talking about? Let's find out.

Bree has been at a distance from her closet friends for awhile now. Those days are over, as Susan, Lynette and Gaby welcome her back with open arms. Bree brings them up to speed on the Orson situation. The ladies are shocked, but relieved to know that they are now in the clear regarding Alejandro's death. They have no idea that Orson mailed some info to the Fairview Police Department. The homicide cops who receive the package think this is more than enough to launch an investigation.

Karen doesn't want to suffer as her cancer worsens, so she asks Bree to help her die with dignity. When her neighbor keeps avoiding the euthanasia issue, Karen takes matters into her own hands. She bakes a suicide pie. It's delicious, as Bree finds out after wolfing down two tasty slices. Thankfully, the ensuing ride to the ER gives Karen a chance to reconsider her early death wish. Bree leaves her and Roy kissing in the street as she drives herself to the hospital to deal with an overdose of some killer pie.

Tom asks Lynette if he could bring Jane to Penny's big birthday bash. Things get pretty awkward come picture time. Jane brought her niece along to snap some shots for a keepsake album. Of course, any photos of her and Penny also feature Lynette inserting herself in the background. This leads to a confrontation where Jane reveals that Tom asked her to move in with him. Lynette looks like she's been punched in the gut.
