Episode Recap

The episode starts with Katherine going to the police station to report that her husband (Adam) has been kidnapped. She remembers the last time she went to the police 14 years ago to ask for help but the policewoman told her that since Wayne has lots of friends, she'd be better off just running away from him. This time doesn't go much different. She tries to explain that Wayne has kidnapped Adam, but the policeman doesn't believe her and calls Wayne to tip him off that 'his crazy wife is telling stories about him again'.
Katherine decides to run again and is packing back at the house with Dylan, but she refuses to go unless Katherine tells her the truth. She does (but the story is not revealed to us) and Dylan runs out of the house.
Gabby, Susan, Bree and Lynette are playing their weekly cards game and they are all talking how secretive Katherine is and Bree is the only one defending her. At this moment Katherine walks in and tells Bree that she has to leave town immediately, which leave Bree to deal with the commitment ceremony all on her own.

At the ceremony Karen McCluskey tells Bree that she just saw Katherine an hour ago. Wayne is working out an alibi including Ellie when Bree shows up. Wayne kidnaps her too and makes Katherine tell him the truth using Bree to 'break' her.
Katherine reveals that the real Dylan died in an accident and her and her aunt buried her while she adopted another little girl, because she knew that Wayne will never leave her alone.
Adam drives in and manage to defeat Wayne and while he goes to call the police, Katherine is left alone with him and, knowing that he will never leave her alone, she shoots him.
