He's also not thrilled to learn his wife must do community service after Carlos had to pick her up from the police station. Mike doesn't mind Susan being friends with a guy. It's all the secrecy that has him upset.

Carlos joins Susan during her community service project. When they catch sight of Mike driving by, the guilt-ridden friends hop into the back of a van.

Bree thinks Chuck wrote the "I know what you did" letter. She needs to be sure. While snooping through her handsome police detective's briefcase, Bree comes across a photo of her hand and a sealed envelope bearing her name. Gaby thinks Chuck may have been trying to match her hand to a print they found at the crime scene with the photo. Now they just need to know what's in that envelope.

Chuck tucks the envelope inside his sports jacket as he and Bree head out for a dinner date. Gaby follows them to the restaurant where she puts her pickpocket skills to use by swiping the mystery envelope. She meets up with Bree in the restroom where the contents of the envelope are revealed. Bree is shocked to see an engagement ring. The picture of her hand was obviously taken to measure her ring size. Whew!

He warns her that she has made a very big mistake. Uh oh.
