Is Edie Dead on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES? : Give Me My Remote

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES: A Spark To Pierce the Dark

March 23, 2009 by  

Hi guys! It’s Tricia here to recap what appears to be Edie’s swan song on Desperate Housewives. Although, I have to say, that woman has as many lives as a cat. First she escaped being strangled by Dave, only to jump in the car and swerve into a pole. No worries though; she was able to walk out of the car. She seemed to have finally have met her end when she was electrocuted by a live wire, however, at the end of the episode her hand seemed to be moving. Of course, we now have to wait until the next episode to find out if she’s really dead. I personally loved this entire sequence. It was fitting that Edie would get quite the dramatic end. If she’s actually dead that is.

If Edie is dead then Orson is going to have some explaining to do. He was the one who caused Edie to swerve after he ran into the street when he was caught robbing a neighbor’s house. He’s excusing his behavior by saying that Bree isn’t playing enough attention to him. He even wants her to sell her company. He’s being an even bigger baby then Tom. None of the husbands on this show seem to be able to handle having successful wives. Not that Orson is going to have a successful wife if he keeps his behavior up. I’m sure Bree will begin to contemplate divorce after his latest actions.

Carlos and Lynette are being kept later and later at work thanks to Carlos’s ex, Lucy, who he hired last episode. Gabby is at her wit’s end after a two week long “dry spell”. Lynette gets Carlos to see that Lucy is being unreasonable. To be honest, this storyline barely held my attention. The one thing I liked about it was the scene where Gabby tries to make Tom her replacement friend since Bree, Lynette, and Susan have all gone back to work. Seeing Gabby trying to get Tom to dish out the gossip was hilarious.

Speaking of Susan, her ex Karl (you know… Julie’s father) is back to terrorize her. He’s just enrolled his son in the school where Susan works and refuses to listen to Susan when she tells him Evan is drawing disturbing pictures. He finally admits that Evan is upset at his mother for abandoning him. I was proud of Susan for being as understanding as she was. She could have told him that karma’s a bitch but instead she listened. I was excited to see Karl back. Now if only we could bring Julie back again as well.

Dave’s plan to kill Katherine on the camping trip was well thought out but came crashing down around him when Edie discovered his secret. I can’t wait to see how he’ll react if Edie isn’t dead.

Tell me what your thoughts are below. Is Edie really dead? What’s Dave’s next move? We know Nicolette Sheridan is leaving the show but wouldn’t they want to keep her alive in case she ever decided to return?  See you back here on April 19th (yes we have to wait that long).

    Why was Orson just standing in the middle of the street? Isn’t this the second near fatality (or fatality if Edie’s dead) he’s caused? As we say in Red Sox nation, coyboy up Orson and be a man!

    I think Edie will live but move away – who wouldn’t.

    It was so funny how Edie almost died like twice before she actually is. I think she might not die at first but as most of us may know, Edie is going to die and Nicolette Sheridan is off the show. I’ll miss her!
