What did you think of the way ‘Desperate Housewives’ ended? HollywoodLife.com readers — and myself — were hoping for more.
After spending eight years with the women of Wisteria Lane, Desperate Housewives fans figured they’d be reaching for the tissues during the show’s May 13 series finale. But instead of getting the warm, satisfying ending they’d hoped for, viewers watched in disappointment as four seemingly life-long friends — Susan (Teri Hatcher), Gaby (Eva Longoria), Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Bree (Marcia Cross) — parted ways, never to see each other again.
Ghosts of Fairview past — and I mean that literally — returned to send off the women of Wisteria Lane. Were you satisfied with the ending?
The two-hour series finale of Desperate Housewives somehow managed to feature every last-episode cliché in the book — a wedding, a delivery, a trial, a death, etc. — but in true Housewives fashion, it all worked together perfectly. Not only were we given closure with each of the women we’ve grown to love, but we were also reminded that there will always be drama on Wisteria Lane. We just won’t see it.
Plus, Susan makes a shocking discovery about Mike!
It’s ironic that the April 1 episode of Desperate Housewives began with a monologue about how Bree (Marcia Cross) feels everything must go according to plan, because all the while, she had no idea someone was working on a nasty plan of their own — against her!
Plus, the evidence continues to mount against Bree! At least she’ll have the cleanest jail cell on the block.
After two weeks of shocks, tears and changes, the March 25 episode of Desperate Housewives found the women of Wisteria Lane doing exactly what they do best: meddling in other people’s lives! Susan (Teri Hatcher) helped her son handle his anger, Bree (Marcia Cross) broke up her son’s engagement, Gaby (Eva Longoria) got paid to tell strangers what to wear, and Lynette (Felicity Huffman) tried to reel Tom (Doug Savant) back into her life. But did it work?
Plus, Mike is laid to rest in one of the saddest TV funeral I’ve ever seen.
Mike’s (James Denton) funeral on the March 18 episode of Desperate Housewives turned out to be more than just a tearjerker, as the women of Wisteria Lane used their memories of him to reflect on some of their past hardships — and realized what needs to be done to conquer their current demons.
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.
The stalking, the letters, the murder — Bree knows about everything!
The March 4 episode of Desperate Housewives felt a little like a filler — especially after the juicy developments we got during February sweeps — until Bree (Marcia Cross) paid a visit to Orson’s (Kyle MacLachlan) apartment and learned the truth. About everything. The revelation led to a fiery confrontation, in which Bree told Orson he meant “nothing” to her. Am I the only one who thinks that wasn’t too smart? Hell hath no fury like a wheelchair-bound psychopath scorned.

It’s too bad real-estate goddess Edie Britt (Nicolette Sheridan) isn’t around anymore, because there’s about to be a vacancy on Wisteria Lane! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that a “major character” will be killed off Desperate Housewives on an episode scheduled for March 2012, and to give you an idea of just how shocking the death will be, the cast was just informed of the tragic twist last week!
Plus, Bree embraces her bad side — and I like it!
While I will never retract my previous statements about Susan (Teri Hatcher) being the dumbest housewife on Wisteria Lane, I will say she got really lucky on the Jan. 22 episode of Desperate Housewives. Alejandro’s wife Claudia (Justina Machado) showed up on Susan’s doorstep this week demanding answers, and when Susan’s big mouth got her even deeper in the hole, Gaby (Eva Longoria) decided to reveal the truth. All of it.
Plus, Susan blows the big murder secret — again! When will that stupid lady stop being stupid?
If you were hoping the Jan. 15 episode of Desperate Housewives would give us the answer to any of this season’s big mysteries — who killed Chuck who’s been sending those letters, to name a few — you’re out of luck. But this week’s episode did present a few new developments in the lives of Wisteria Lane’s finest, including the arrival of a dangerous new enemy!

A lot of things can get in the way of a perfectly good friendship — and it turns out murder is one of those things. Tensions between the women of Wisteria Lane are running so high on the Jan. 15 episode of Desperate Housewives that it’s not even fair to call them friends.
Another week, another twist in the season-long mystery. Who do YOU think has been sending these letters?
We may not know exactly who killed Chuck Vance (Jonathan Cake), but we got a pretty major clue on the Jan. 8 episode of Desperate Housewives — and like all good clues, it was saved until the final minutes. The same mystery person who sent the Mary Alice-esque letter to Bree (Marcia Cross) in the season premiere gifted her with a follow-up note this week: “You’re welcome.” Politeness has never been so chilling.
‘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.
