After a series of break-ins on Wisteria Lane, the neighbors form a neighborhood watch to protect Wisteria Lane from would-be intruders. Susan makes a date with a police officer after she believes Mike is losing interest in her. Gabrielle's mother in law, Mama Solis arrives unexpectedly to stay for a few weeks. The reason being so that Carlos can know if she is cheating or not. After choosing not to medicate the twins, Lynette decides to enroll them in private school. The interview goes well but in order to impress the faculty and headmaster, Lynette works the children to full capacity before sending them to school. Instead of being energetic and playful, they are docile and quiet which proves to be positive—for now. While Andrew and Danielle are away camping, Bree is left alone in the house for the first time in years. To avoid the loneliness of eating alone, she invites Zach Young over and the two have an informative but fascinating conversation about the deaths of their mothers.
