Chosen answer: Poker. They have been playing that this whole time, once a week with everyone who was invited that lived on the Lane.

Season 1 generally

Question: Why did Paul drain his pool, dig up the box, and dump it in the river? It would have made more sense to not touch it, as it was the finding of the box by a fisherman that really made Mike zero in on him. I still can't figure out why.

Chosen answer: Paul was planning to sell the house after Mary Alice commited suicide. Being that the next tenants might redo the property, if the pool was ripped up then they would find the body. Paul owned the property, knew the victim, and constructed the pool while they were living there so it would likely be enough evidence to convict him. However dumping the toy box in the lake meant that there wasn't any link/evidence to Paul or Mary Alice had anything to do with it other than owning a toy box.

Question: In season 1 the mystery is what really happened to the Young family that made Mary Alice kill herself. While it's revealed that Zach was in fact a baby named Dana and a son of Mike and Deirdre, I really don't understand why Zach had a female name and then later got a male name with his new parents. Is there something I'm missing or is Dana just a unisex name?

Chosen answer: Dana is a unisex name. I'm they changed it because of them keeping them without anyone knowing. If you recall Mary Alice's name used to be Angela. All their names were changed.
