Mike tells Susan that he said he would love her during the good and the bad. The next morning, Susan wakes up to see garbage all over the Bolen's garden as well as "leave" written in paint on their walls. Susan goes outside and helps Angie pick it up which is her way of saying that she is sorry.
Lynette and Tom tell Porter, Parker and Penny that Lynette is pregnant. The three each get very angry.
