‘Desperate Housewives’ returns Jan. 8! Watch a preview video of the winter premiere.

The residents of Wisteria Lane have a lot to feel guilty about these days. Not only are Desperate Housewives‘ four leading ladies still sweating it out over burying a body in the woods, but now someone has killed Chuck (Jonathan Cake), the detective assigned to the case — and everyone’s a suspect.

Could it have been Carlos (Ricardo Chavira), the man who killed Gaby’s (Eva Longoria) stepfather in the first place? Or maybe it was Bree (Marcia Cross), who recently fall back off the wagon. And hey, let’s not forget Mike’s (James Denton) history of violence!

Watch a preview of the Jan. 8 episode below, then drop us a comment telling us who you think the killer is. And, as always, check HollywoodLife.com after the episode airs for our thoughts.

Honestly, I think it is Ms mccluskey, that would be perfect, she has had a role in all of their lives and never really did anything that wold be considered shady. This would show how she truly it’s in on Wisteria lane. I will be really upset if that isn’t who did it

I think that bree could have killed vance, becasue heres why. When rene told her to tell her why she almost commited suicied, she didn’t want to tell why. All of her friends were againts here, and she had none at home she started drinking aswell, so mabey when she was drunk she wrote this stuff to herself, subconciously this is how she felt about helpin to barry the body, KILLING VANCE, and mabey other stuff that she did

I think it was Orson, coming back to help Bree. I also like the Mrs. McCloskey theory.

Katherine is coming back this season….they helped her cover up her ex’s murder….her daughters death…and her “daughters” adoption…that’s my guess.

I think it was Mrs. McCluskey; she’s the most Desperate Housewife of them all. Mrs. McCluskey see’s everything and she’s been there since the beginning. I believe she wrote the letters and killed Chuck Vance. However, in the most recent episode, she drives Carlos and Gaby to the police station; they didn’t mention if her car was damaged or not…

its not bree because she got those letters (“I know what you did..” and “you’re welcome”
it’s not Paul young because he is in jail
its not Carlos because he left his car at the police station
I think it’s going to be someone obscure, maybe bree’s son, or paul young’s son, or maybe mrs mclusky
it’s definitely not one of the main characters though!!
what do you think?!

Really? I have no idea who did it, but Bree is nowhere near the top of my list.

Ahhh you may be onto something thinking it was Bree. She has claimed to be the brain of this whole thing and always seems to fix everything else so why wouldn’t she fix this? Maybe that is why she was going to commit suicide? They made it look like Carlos did it but that didn’t pan out. Unless it is someone from the past that is not a regular on the show I am guessing it is Bree. Any thoughts?

I think that Paul Young is also a possibility. It would be the perfect wrap up to the series.

That is a really good bet, because that could be the reason she didn’t want to tell rene about why she killed herself, but i thought it was because none of her friends wanted her,so she felt no place. She had no husband, and she started drinking. That could be a reason aswell
