(Mary Alice Young quote and the detailed recap follow...)
Mary Alice Young quote:
“It happens the second Sunday of every May. We celebrate the women who give us life and so much more. The ones who protect us at all costs... who have the courage to fight those who would do us harm... who put our happiness ahead of their own. But mostly, we celebrate a mother's love, which is constant, eternal, and there from the very beginning.”
Last time on Desperate Housewives, (Season 4 episode 15, Mother Said):
Bree confronts Edie about having kissed Orson. Edie tries to tell her she's not interested in Orson but that doesn't stop Bree from persuading a prospective client of Edie's to get a new realtor. Orson stops by to see baby Benjamin since Bree isn't returning his calls, and tells her that the kiss was a mistake and that he pushed Edie away. When he insists he has rights as Benjamin's father, Bree icily reminds him that isn't the baby's father and that she's hired a lawyer.
He calls his own lawyer and has written down all the pertinent facts, which he leaves on a table at his hotel as he goes to take a shower. Edie comes to ask him to get Bree off her back and instead finds the notes, which give her all the ammunition she needs to handle Bree on her own.
Edie informs Bree that now that she knows that Danielle is Benjamin's real mother, the stakes have changed. Unless Bree does everything Edie asks -- invite her to all her best parties, make her muffins whenever she wants -- she'll spill the beans.
Bree goes to Lynette, Susan and Gaby and shakily confesses the whole charade about the baby. Her friends are incensed on her behalf and go with her to tell Edie that she's no longer their friend. Edie realizes they're serious and tries to apologize, but they just walk away.
Tom and Lynette hire a psychiatrist to observe the family, although Lynette wants him to just focus on Kayla. Overhearing this, Kayla tries to act like the model daughter when he's around. The therapist catches on to the fact that there's no love lost between Lynette and Kayla and suggests they try "attachment parenting," where the two spend a lot of time together so they can bond.
They go on a shopping trip, which is going well, until Kayla suspects that Lynette's only doing it because the therapist ordered her to. She insists that Lynette buy her an outrageously expensive dress and when Lynette caves, she says Lynette better give her everything she wants or she won't like what happens. She brags that she got Preston to jump off the roof and when she wonders what she could get Penny to do, Lynette slaps her. Kayla's next move is to call the doctor and tell him what happened, but lies and says that it wasn't the first time Lynette hit her.
Mike's mother Adele arrives like a whirlwind. She insists on teaching Susan her family's recipes, despite Susan's insistence that she doesn't cook, and also suggests that maybe Susan should get a "real" job. Susan is tired of the little jabs that "Mama" keeps making and and tells Mike he needs to start defending her. Instead, he sits by quietly over lunch as Mama goes on and on about how she'll stay longer and help Susan "spruce up" the house, although she'll leave as soon as the baby comes.
That's all Susan needs to hear: she pours her glass of water over her feet and announces that her water just broke -- and that it's time for Mama to leave! Once outside, she confesses her deception but tells Mike that it really is time for Mama to go. Mike is finally telling Mama to hold her tongue about Susan when she goes into labor, this time for real!
Carlos and Gaby love their new tenant, Ellie, since she's so helpful around the house and so good with Carlos. But then Gaby discovers that Ellie's sideline isn't tattoos, but drugs, and they realize they need to turn her in or it will violate his parole. When they go to the police, they already know about Ellie. Trouble is, she's smalltime, so they want her dealer, which means they want her to continue dealing and the Solises to continue to pretend everything is okay. Gaby feels even worse when Ellie presents her with flowers on Mother's Day, saying Gaby's treated her better than her own mother ever did.
Katherine tries to warn Dylan about Wayne, but Dylan continues to see her father anyway. Katherine tells Wayne that she got revenge for his abuse during their marriage by having several affairs and that Dylan isn't even his. He takes some gum Dylan was chewing and submits it for a DNA test and is horrified to find that Katherine was telling the truth.
He gets drunk and watches a home video of Dylan as a little girl, after she'd bravely gotten several stitches on her arm. He calls her and asks her to come over: He's got some things to tell her about her mother. When she arrives, he starts examining her arms and then angrily orders her to leave, although he won't say why.
