Flashbacks take us back to key moments in time for Bree, Lynette, Susan and Gabrielle and how they connect to the present. After hearing Betty's message on her cellphone about Matthew being a murderer Bree realizes she needs to escape from the psychiatric hospital and help Danielle, who has run away with him. When he sees Mike buying an engagement ring, Karl buys Susan a house. Lynette finds out that Tom has an illegitimate daughter from before they were married. Gabrielle discovers a shocking secret her husband has been keeping from her.
Kathryn Joosten (Karen McCluskey) is featured in this episode, but only the back of her head is seen, and it's blurry. As a result, she is typically not credited in this individual episode, but received billing for the original 2-hour premiere that included the first part.
The scene wherein Zach receives a call from his father, from jail, was originally aired within the first part of the episode, but later changed to be included in the second part for the individual broadcasting. Many other scenes are also reshuffled.
The scene wherein Gabrielle takes Xiao-Mei to see a doctor and asks him to check if she's still a virgin is dropped from the episode for time in the split for individual broadcasting. The cut is made to accomodate a recap of Part 1's events.
