Orson is confronted by Mike about Monique and her strange death, in which Orson barely survives a fall off the roof of the hospital. Bree wakes in the hospital following her "accident" and is in a hurry to return home and deal with Monique's death, herself. The truth about Monique Pollier's murder is finally revealed how both Orson and his twisted mother were involved, as well as more of Orson's past is shown. When Alma learns of Gloria's plan to murder Bree, she attempts to escape from her "prison" to warn her only to suffer a "freak accident". Tom becomes nervous over preparing for the night of the Scavo's Pizzeria grand opening, while Lynnette inadvertently makes matters a little worse with ordering the wrong chairs. Neverless, the grand opening goes off without a hitch where proposals fly ... Written by Moviedude1

Orson Hodge: [voice over] Tomorrow morning, one of our neighbours will stumble upon a gruesome surprise. The police will conclude that Alma fell from the roof, and when my mother found her, she suffered a stroke. When they search the house they'll find the note that Alma wrote when she faked her suicide and next to it, a bag containing Monique's teeth. In the face of such evidence they'll have no choice but to drop the charges against Mike Delfino.
