Flashbacks of Alma Hodge, Orson Hodge's presently ex-wife are shown right before she disappeared after she tried to leave her husband. Six months have passed since Orson Hodge deliberately injured Mike in a hit and run accident. Mike Delfino has been in a coma since. Susan Mayer takes care of Mike while he is in the hospital and befriends a man called Ian Hainsworth, whose own wife, Jane , is in a coma. Ian asks Susan out but she feels she might hurt Mike if she agrees to Ian's proposal.

Bree Van De Kamp gets romantically involved with Orson Hodge and Orson later asks her to marry him. Lynette Scavo tries to stop Nora Huntington from forcing her way into the Scavo family while trying to keep Kayla Huntington, Tom's illegitimate daughter closeby.
