OK...in the first episode, Susan (Teri Hatcher) heard from one of the neighbors that Edie (Nicolette Sheridan) had sent her son to stay at a friend's overnight because she was having a man over for dinner, and her intention was to have her guest stay overnight. Susan knew that the guest was Mike, so she decided to try to crash Edie's "dinner party" to stop Edie from hooking up with Mike. She went to Edie's house with a measuring cup saying that she needed to borrow some ingredient, and when nobody answered her knock, she found that the door was open and let herself in. There were candles lit and clothes strewn all over the floor, and lots of um, background noise coming from upstairs. Susan managed to accidentally knock one of the candles into the drapes, and the place lit up. She ran out before anyone saw her, but in her hurry, she left her measuring cup behind.
Oh, and it turns out that the guy wasn't Mike after all.
