When she drops off the streamers; she ends up giving the cookies to the school; the poisoned ones. Next, Renee updates Bree about Chuck. Chuck is at the door and Bree goes on a date with him.
But she is unhappy. She had just found out that Chuck is married and thinks that he should not date till he is divorced. She also tells him that there is always a chance that he could reconcile with his wife. Chuck tells her that it is their first date and they haven’t ordered yet. How does she expect him to tell her all this beforehand? She tells him that she cannot be blamed for doing a background check on him. But it turns out that Chuck knows a lot more about Bree! She is angry that he investigated her! Ah, the irony!! She tells him that there is no excuse for him, and whatever she did was to protect herself. She walks out. Next, Lynnette is still upset and refuses to have sex. She feels that he cannot try the management tricks on her, as she is the one who taught him those. Chuck is driving back with Bree and she tells him that there would not be a second chance.
He knows that it couldn’t get any worse and picks up a prostitute named Violet. He is taking her to the shelter. Violet thinks that he is trying to impress Bree, but he tells her that Bree hates him more than she does. Violet thinks that he is better off without Bree as she seems to be “bitchy”. He tells Violet that ten years ago, Bree used to turn tricks like she did and one day she tells Chuck that she can be better than this, and gets a first class degree. She had transformed her life and he tells Violet that she too can do better. Violet sees light! Paul suspects that it could be Susan who is poisoning him. He tells her that it is just stress. He decides to have something prepared by Susan; a tuna casserole; and finds out that there is a trace of anti-freeze in it. Next, Gaby is setting up a tent and is having a tough time.
She tells Carlos that she wants to prove it to Juanita that there is no scary guy in the lawn. She tells Carlos to sleep with her in the tent, but he denies. So, she has to sleep the night in the lawn. Not a big deal, hopefully. Next, Bree visits Chuck. She tells him that she wanted to know his secrets first and then tells him hers. She wonders as to when did dating become so complicated. He tells her that they have had their hearts kicked around and now they are being careful. They decide to have a normal first date, and that too at that moment. Next, Susan is making cookies for Paul and the nurse who is talking to her pours in a liquid in it, when Susan turns to get something. Next, Lynette and Tom are presenting their vacations to the kids. Next, Gaby and Juanita are in the tent and Juanita is wearing a helmet to protect herself.

Next, Gaby and Juanita fall asleep. But Gaby wakes up listening to some sound and sees the shadow of a man. She tells Lee that it is enough and he has got the job done.
