Desperate Housewives: Witch's Lament

As Halloween approaches, Gaby, Bree and Lynette must attempt to exhume and move the body of Gaby's murdered stepfather after learning that Ben's real estate development excavation is taking place on that very spot. Meanwhile, Susan discovers that being art teacher Andre's (Miguel Ferrer) intern involves tending to matters that don't involve art; not to be outdone by Tom's new girlfriend, Lynette tries to construct a homemade Halloween costume for Penny; and Renee uses a little enticement to help spice up her first night of romance with Ben.

various ways, but this time, it doesn't seem to work. Andre picks up the offending cupcake, tosses it in the trash. Susan is taken aback, tries to pay him compliments later in class. That doesn't seem
