Gabrielle and Carlos are enjoying being pampered at Mrs. Hildebrand's, who's invited the whole family to stay for the weekend. Gaby has second thoughts, however, when Mrs. Hildebrand encourages the girls to call her "Grandma." They make excuses to leave for Celia's birthday party, but Mrs. Hildebrand makes a surprise appearance, wanting to take Celia shopping for an expensive, antique doll. Carlos has warned Gaby not to alienate Mrs. Hildebrand, as she has a lot of pull at the country club but Gaby tells her, "Knock it off. This whole creepy, clingy, 'I am your grandma' routine. It's like you're trying to buy us, but we're not for sale, so just back off."
Mrs. Hildebrand's next move is to call the president of the country club and tell him that Carlos's last massage with her was "highly inappropriate" and that he is "a liability the club can't afford."
Jackson and Susan's "fresh start" is going very well and they're getting to know each other better. She finds out that he also paints art, but has been creatively blocked. She insists on no sex until their fourth date, so a frustrated Jackson turns to his canvas. But Susan nixes her own "fourth-date" rule on the third date and can't understand why Jackson turns her down.
She shows up at his apartment the next night in a sexy corset and announces, "I'm declaring this our official fourth date. You may begin disrobing now." He tells her he's busy and admits that he's been painting again, since not having sex has freed up his artistic drive. She runs into his studio to take a look at the painting and is astonished to see that it's of her, and that he knows her better than she ever thought.
An enraged Lynette confronts Tom, whom she believes is having an affair with Anne Schilling, their realtor and longtime friend. She's astonished when he reveals it's Porter who's been having the affair, and Tom is shocked to find out that the "girl from English class," that Porter told him about is really a married woman. "You're having sex with your best friend's mother?" Lynette shouts at Porter when he comes home. They order Porter to call it off with Anne but he threatens to leave home if the husband finds out. "If you don't end this, you won't have to leave. We will throw you out," Lynette counters.
Lynette angrily confronts Anne after a school meeting and when Anne says she loves Porter, Lynette slaps her. "So do I. And if you ever lay a hand on him again, you will find out just how much."
Porter meets with Anne, who drops a bombshell: "I'm pregnant." Unbeknownst to his parents, he makes a plan to run away with her.
Dave has a surprise for the band: He's signed them up for a "Battle of the Bands" competition. He tells Mike they need an original song, but Mike says he's too busy. "What's her name?" Dave asks, saying he's heard that Susan and Jackson broke up. "Get a life," Mike replies, refusing to name who he's seeing.
Karen's sister, Roberta, has gotten ahold of Dave's phone records, which reveal a pattern of calls to a Boston psychiatrist for the criminally insane. They call the doctor, posing as an insurance company, but he realizes they're not legit. Roberta admits that they're just trying to get information on a new neighbor who's "creeping them out." The doctor reacts strongly when she mentions they're in Fairview. He doesn't tell them why, but immediately books a flight to Fairview.
Thanks to surveillance video, Bree and Orson discover that an employee has stolen $200 from the petty cash box and fire him. But when they decided to celebrate their success by having sex in their test kitchen, they inadvertently provide him with the means to blackmail them when he steals the tape. Bree gives Andrew "carte blanche" to do whatever he has to to get it back, as a sex tape would ruin her wholesome "Mrs. Van de Kamp" image. Andrew gets it back -- "You'd be surprised what a group of bikers is willing to do for a case of beer" -- and shows them the tape, which is not of them, but of Katherine and Mike!
Bree presents the video to Katherine, who is embarrassed but not apologetic for seeing Mike. Bree asks her if she knows what she's doing, hooking up with the ex-husband of her oldest friend on Wisteria Lane. Katherine answers, "I'm having the time of my life." "I'd hate to see it end badly," Bree warns.
