"Your Fault" is the 13th episode of the ABC television series, Desperate Housewives. The episode was the 13th episode for the show's first season. The episode was written by Kevin Etten and was directed by Arlene Sanford. It originally aired on Sunday January 23, 2005.


Lynette's father-in-law, Rodney Scavo, arrives in town on business and stays with them. However, when Lynette catches Rodney fooling around on their couch with another woman, she throws him out on the street. After Tom manages to get things smoothed over he tells Rodney that everyone makes mistakes-- including himself. Susan catches Zach and Julie making out and demands Paul to do something about it. Zach then invites Julie to a school dance which Susan and Paul monitor. After the dance, Paul tells Zach about his background and why he keeps seeing visions from the past. When Zach comes over to apologize to Susan and to bring Julie flowers, he has an outburst which gets him banned from seeing Julie--ever. Rex tries to reconcile with Bree who is not budging and warns George to stay away from Bree. Gabrielle is asked by John's parents to persuade him to go to college and move back home or they will go to the authorities. Gabrielle does as she is told but when John refuses and proposes instead, she must decline since she is still married and in love with Carlos.


  • It is seen when Lynette and Rodney go into Lynette's house after Rodney has just arrived that instead of where Lynette's staircase would be visible there is instead a wall and a table in its place; this is because the entire living space of Lynette's house is located on a sound stage.
