Something awful happened on Lake View Drive last year. To understand why, you need to know that when Alma Hodge awoke that morning, she had no idea this would be the day she'd leave her husband. Certainly, it began normally enough. She put away the groceries per his instructions. She hung his dry cleaning exactly as he had requested. She folded the towels just as he had taught her. It was just before noon, when something inside Alma broke and she decided it was time to fly away. Of course she knew better than to say this to her husband. He thought Alma was happy. And Orson Hodge did not like to be contradicted. So she waited 'til he left for work. And then.... The next day Carolyn Bigsby stopped by, and like most nosy neighbors, she knew you learned more if you didn't knock. Yes, Orson Hodge was a man who did not like to be contradicted.... by anyone.

Bree: Excuse me. Did you lose something?
Orson: No. I just thought... for you.
Bree: Oh, um. I don't do that.
Orson: Why not?
