The housewives unite to do whatever it takes to stop Paul Young from opening the halfway house. Paul isn't worried, but perhaps he should be. As his deceased wife points out in her ever-so-soothing voiceover, he had forgotten what ordinary men and women will do to protect themselves from the wrong kind of people. We're just wondering whose gun is being shown as Mary Alice says these words.
Brent Ferguson, the head of a local homeowners association, offers to help Lynette with her problem through a not-so-subtle show of force. Lynette says she prefers to handle things in a more civilized way. But when Paul tricks Lee into selling him his house, Lynette decides to take Brent Ferguson up on his offer to help.
The neighbors plan a protest when the mayor comes to present Paul an award for public service. They make signs that say things like "Keep Wisteria Safe" and "Who Let the Cons Out?" There's strength in numbers, so Lynette's happy to see Brent Ferguson's parade of people flooding her street. What she doesn't notice is several men in the crowd arming themselves with baseball bats.
During a video chat, Susan tells Mike that Renee has feelings for Tom. Later, she lets Tom know that even though his past with Renee meant nothing to him; it sure meant something to her. She's still in love with him. Susan suggests Tom ask Renee to leave the lane, so he heads over to chat with her during the protest.
Gaby has been crying every day since Grace left. Lynette suggests that she write a letter as a form of therapy. It's not something she'll ever send, but letting out her feelings may help. So, Gaby takes pen in hand and pours out her heart. Unfortunately, Juanita sees the note on the desk in her mom's room. She storms out of the house and Gaby can't find her amongst the sea of protesters.
Keith takes another shot at asking Bree to marry him. She stops him before he can pop the question so she can pose a question of her own. Perhaps it's a little early in their relationship to be thinking about marriage. But that does mean they can't shack up. Keith is up for that, though his dad tries to dampen his good mood by suggesting that Bree is just having fun with him. This has Keith asking Bree for a bigger commitment. When that doesn't happen, Keith moves out before he even moves in.
There's still some work that needs to be done on Bree's backyard, so Richard pops by to finish the job. This turns out to be a good thing when a scary dude from the halfway house wanders into Bree's living room. She's frightened, but the guy leaves as soon as Richard steps into the room. Then Bree wants Richard to leave, as well. Why? Well, it could have something to do with the fact that he was all over her. But Richard says he won't leave until he finishes the job in the yard. This guy is really creeping us out now.
As the mayor's speech begins, so does the protest. There's just so much happening. Gaby and Carlos search for Juanita, who is hiding in the back of a fleeing Lee and Bob's car. Renee and Susan are going at each other over the Tom situation. People are throwing fruit at the mayor. And when Keith hears what his Richard did, he decks his dad on the front lawn. This prompts some of the cons to starting beating on Keith. This forces Bree to grab her gun and fire it into the air. This sends the crowd fleeing frantically. In other words, all hell breaks loose!
Brent and his gang take their bats and smash up the halfway house. The mob attacks Bob and Lee's car. Gaby and Carlos see Juanita in the backseat and are able to pull her to safety. Lee, however, is hit with a bottle. Lynette rushes to help, screaming for the mob to leave him alone, as he's her neighbor. Renee and Tom look for Susan. They find her on the ground having been trampled by the mob. She's hurt. Mrs. McCluskey, too.
It's a truly frightening scene. The chaos is beyond disturbing for everyone except for one man. Paul Young steps into his house shortly before the police arrive and the crowd disperses. Later, Paul steps out to pick up the mayor's award that sits in the street. He lets out a little smile. Thenâ€¦BANG! The gunshot that hits Paul causes him to fall. He now lays smack dab in the middle of all the damage he caused on Wisteria Lane.
