Paul Young and his wife Mary-Alice bought a child off a drug addict. When the drug addict was brought to hospital, the nurse Mary-Alice noticed another nurse (Felicia Tillman) saying that this drug addict had a baby and was asking what happened to it. After this Mary-Alice knew that it was only a matter of time before the drug addict woke up and told people where the baby went. Desperately Mary-Alice looks at Felicaia Tillman’s callenda which shows the town where Felicia’s sister lives, ‘Fairview’. Hastily, Mary-Alice choses this as a place to relocate with a new identity.
The drug addict happens to track them down to Wisteria Lane within 3 years, she demands to have her child back. Paul and Mary-Alice refuse, which results in the drug addict trying to take her child back by force. This results in a struggle where Mary-Alice ends up stabing her. Paul covers up the Murder and places the dead body in a toy chest, chopped up.
Unluckily, Paul and Mary-Alice end up living next door to Felicia Tillman’s sister (Martha Huber) in the town of Fairview. When Martha and her sister talk, Martha finds out that Paul and Mary-Alice are not who they say they are, and the missing drug addict she was told about by Felicia was presumabling killed by the Youngs. This results in Martha sending the horrible letter to Mary-Alice reading: “I know what you did, it makes me sick, I am going to tell” This causes Mary-Alice to commit suicide.
After commiting suicide in the opening of the Pilot episode, Mary-Alice Young becomes the Narrator of the show. She watches over the housewives of Wisteria Lane and talks about their hopes, dreams, and secrets.
