With Gaby and the girls temporarily staying at Bree's house, Bree must lay down the law and demand discipline before Juanita and Celia destroy her home.

Meanwhile Tom hires Lynette and Renee to redecorate his office - but Lynette has her own ideas of what she thinks Tom needs as opposed to wants; and while continuing to help nurse Paul back to health, Susan discovers that Felicia has been released from prison and is back on Wisteria Lane.
Paul fears he's had a heart attack, but the truth is much worse: someone has been poisoning him with antifreeze. And by "someone", we almost certainly mean Felicia.

Tom insists his employee finish a major work assignment over the weekend despite a family obligation.
