'Desperate Housewives' recap: Pain and Suffering
Meanwhile, Susan is still dancing with vacuum cleaners and dusters on the internet. She's doing a ridiculously stiff job at it, so Lainie Kazan gets to come over and awesomely show her how to loosen up and dance. The next morning, though, Mike forgets something and comes back. When he finds his wife cleaning the house in a skimpy nightie, he obviously wants to get it on right then and there. It's a near miss, as Susan barely gets the computer closed before capturing her and Mike's lovemaking session on camera. She's pretty bummed about lying to her man, but the wads of cash she's making seem to make it all okay.
And at the Scavo home comes the biggest shock of all. Tom has postpartum depression, but that's not the shocker. Renee talks to him, and acts as his therapist, but that's not the shocker either. Lynette flashes her boobs at Tom and he chooses to talk, but that's not even the big twist. What we learn, ultimately -- after Renee announces she'll be moving into Edie's old house on the lane -- is that she and Tom have a secret past that Lynette doesn't know about. And Tom wants to make sure it stays that way. Which, of course, means that it won't.
