Pat is writing the hell out of her new novel - the tale of a repressed housewife's sexual awakening in 1950s Connecticut. Of course, the star of the book - her muse Rosemary - only appears when Pat's on the right combination of alcohol, prescription pills and espresso! But her publisher is loving the new pages, so Pat's not too worried about her "process." Until the novel takes a sudden gory turn (seemingly against her will) and Pat's forced to confront Rosemary... and a messy part of her own past. Meanwhile, Terry makes the best out of his last day of forced "vacation" mandated by his boss, following his role in "Eat a Hot Dick-gate." After spending quality with his kids, his house, and Pat, Terry makes a decision about returning to work that will come back to haunt him. Lastly, Gaynor takes a new tack in trying to sleep with her boyfriend, and, in the process, meets an old lady who seems to know something about the house, while Jake finds something creepy in the woods.
