"Fear No More" is the 20th episode of Desperate Housewives.



Gabrielle goes out to buy a new car. She finds one she likes, but, because she is pregnant, the smell of the car makes her feel nauseous and she throws up. When the saleswoman suggests that Gabrielle might be pregnant, Gabrielle insists she is not. At Carlos's farewell party, she finds out she is pregnant and blames Carlos in front of all the party guests.


Bree and Rex unexpectedly run into George at the park and Rex advises George to beat it. Bree tries to make amends by visiting George in the pharmacy. He lies and tells her that he has found a girlfriend, Ginger who stacks the shelves. Bree feels happy for George and invites him to come to Carlos's farewell party. When Rex sees George at the party, he asks him why he is there and proceeds to push both Bree and George into the pool.


Zach continues to stalk Julie who is not interested in being his girlfriend anymore. Paul asks Edie why she broke into his house and Edie informs Paul it was Susan's idea. Paul meets Susan and manages to lie once more about the Mary Alice/Dana mystery. When Susan's kitchen goes on fire, she blames Paul Young as the arson and goes to Mr. Shaw for background information on Mary Alice and Paul. Later on we find out that it was Zach who started the fire.
