Bree was in the hotel room about to kill herself and someone ran over the cop she used to date who was now trying to put her and Gabby, Lynette and Susan in jail for the murder of Gabby's step-father (Carlos murdered him).
The cop is dead.
Bree almost was. But there was someone banging at her door. She finally got up to answer it and discovered Renee. Who was there to beat her up for going after the Australian guy Renee is dating and Renee was sure was in the hotel with Bree. She swathe gun instead.
Remember Renee's mother killed herself.
So Renee refused to leave Bree and got her back home and stayed over and moved in.
Why was she so upset that she was going to kill herself?
Bree told Renee that was a conversation for friends and Renee said they were friends but Bree corrected her and hurt her feelings. (Even with her feelings hurt, she didn't leave Bree alone.)
At the cop's funeral, Renee told Bree about her mother.
Lynette can't stop bitching about Tom. Oh no he got the wrong crust on the pizza.
He didn't go off to France with his new girlfriend because of the cop. Does Lynette ever stop griping?
Gabby finds out Carlos got drunk and can't remember where he was after he left the rehab clinic. Did he run over the cop? I don't think so but we'll know next episode when they get his car back from the cops (he left it at the police headquarters.)
Susan's off to Oklahoma to tell dead step-father's family that he's dead or something. I'm not sure what but she insists (to Mike) that she'll feel better once she does.
So end of the episode? Gabby's thrilled that they're off the hook and thinks maybe God sent 'one of his drunken angels' to take care of the cop. Meanwhile Bree's at her mailbox. Remember the card she found saying that the writer knew what she'd done? This card said: You're welcome.
Who is the killer?
If it someone already on the show -- in episodes this season -- it's the Australian guy. The only other people I could think of would be Bree's son or daughter but they wouldn't leave those cards.
