The road to recovery begins in the aftermath of the deadly fire that shook the citizens of Fairview. For Gaby and Carlos, injuries sustained in the fire lead to a fortunate discovery. But for most, the consequences are less forgiving.
Meanwhile, Lynette and Tom vow to protect son Porter at any cost; Susan must learn to let go of the man she loves; and Orson's attempt at a good night's sleep puts Bree in a most precarious, though amusing, position on the day of her big cooking demonstration.
