'Desperate Housewives' Recap: Someone Is Killed On Wisteria Lane

Sun, March 11, 2012 11:59pm EDT by 62 Comments

Spoiler alert! Don’t read on until you’ve seen the March 11 episode of ‘Desperate Housewives.’

Even though most of us knew about tonight’s major death a few days ago, the March 11 episode of Desperate Housewives was nothing short of heartbreaking. The final scene between Mike (James Denton) and Susan (Teri Hatcher) on the porch literally ripped me to pieces, as she thanked him for always being there to protect people, and he told her — for the last time — just how much he really loved her.

Unfortunately, no one was able to protect Mike as the mobster returned for a little afternoon drive-by. Time stood still right before Mike was shot, as his life with Susan flashed before his — and our — eyes. And his final moments, as he lay bleeding and dying with Susan by his side, is without a doubt the most devastating moment this show has ever delivered us. (That title previously belonged to the season one finale in which Bree literally wailed when she found out her husband had died.)

Of course, it really wasn’t a great week for any of the housewives. Lynette (Felicity Huffman) found out Tom (Doug Savant) is moving in with his new girlfriend, Carlos (Ricardo Chavira) told Gaby (Eva Longoria) he’s quitting his job, and Bree (Marcia Cross) accidentally ate a poisoned pie that Mrs. McClusky had baked to kill herself.

What was YOUR reaction to Mike’s death? Did you know about it ahead of time, and did that soften the blow at all? Hit up the comments section with your thoughts on the episode, and Mike’s shocking (or not-so-shocking) death.

i’ve been watching this show since episode one, season one. mike was in every single season, and to kill him off because the series is ending is just downright upsetting. i don’t think anyone can be please about mikes death, i know i was shocked and sad. i just don’t understand why they decided to kill him off…especially in the last moments of the episode. it’s just mean for the producers and writers of the show to kill off a loved character that has been with us throughout the show.

I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours today, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.

Yes it was shocking…Mike was fantastic! I thought he’d kick the mobsters butt. That was the best funeral and most realistic one I’ve ever seen on TV

MARC CHERRY YOU SUCK! Killing off Mike… Way to ruin this show for fans just because of your vendetta in that stupid lawsuit. People watch this show for entertainment, not to get more depressed. You ignorant MORON!

I am so disappointed…After 8 years of this show, we all knew it was supposed to end one day. I only hoped every housewives whould know a “happy ending”, this would be a gift for fans…But no…Sometimes, productors can be so numb…and dumb !
