When he learns that Bob and Lee are seeing a counselor, Tom suggests that they see one also but Lynette thinks therapy is for losers. Tom starts seeing their therapist on his own, including keeping a "feelings" journal. He won't let Lynette read it, but says she should join him in therapy. Instead, she shows up at the doctor's to defend herself from what she's sure is Tom's badmouthing. She admits that she likes to be in control and when she's not, she gets mad. "Maybe I'm mad a lot, but you can't control what happens in life." We're relieved when Lynette decides therapy might be a good thing for her too.
Orson continues to order Bree around at his whim and refuses to let her give him a bath. She finally tells him to at least say please before she gives him his breakfast. He refuses, so she puts his waffles on a shelf he can't reach. When the physical therapist arrives, he pretends to be starving and abused. The therapist tells Bree to be more patient and if not, she'll have to report her. Oh, and to give Orson a bath. When Orson still refuses to say please, she gives him a shower outside with the garden hose, until he begs her, "Please, stop." He admits it's hard to ask for help. She gets down on her knees and says, "I'm so sorry. Forgive me."
When Juanita starts at Oakridge, Susan and Gaby get into a competition to see which of their kids is in the most advanced group. Gaby won't rest until she deducts that the Leopards, Juanita's group, are actually advanced and Susan is crushed to hear that M.J.'s in the slow Giraffe group. She tells another teacher that Gaby broke the code and the word soon travels through the school. While they wait to see the principal, they admit they both got carried away and confess their fears that they're letting their children down.
Angie takes an instant dislike to Danny's new girlfriend, Ana, but is nice to her on advice from Lee. Ana isn't fooled by Angie, but she promises she won't hurt Danny.
Katherine isn't happy to see Karen at the hospital and tells her she has no plans to return home. "After everything I did, I don't see how anyone could forgive me," she tells Karen, who doesn't give up. In fact, she brings Bree, Gaby and Lynette with her. Susan is there too and we hold our breath as she approaches Katherine. And we smile when she pulls her in for a hug.
