DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES: Look Into Their Eyes and You Will See What They Know

April 20, 2009 by  

Hey everyone! Desperate Housewives was back tonight with a tribute episode to Edie, who, after several brushes with death, finally bit the dust. Each of the housewives took time to reminiscence about some of their more positive experiences with Edie throughout the years. Each scenario had a common theme; Edie using her unique personality to help each housewife through a difficult time in their life.

The format of this episode reminded me of the 100th episode; I didn’t think this episode was nearly as good though. Edie’s narration wasn’t working for me, especially at the end when the ladies were scattering her ashes. It got way too corny. I’m not sure what exactly was off with this episode. The plot just seemed way too contrived for me. The whole, “let’s take turns telling stories about Edie” especially felt contrived. And, throughout the whole episode, I couldn’t help but wonder why Traver’s father wasn’t the one telling him that Edie died. The ladies barely knew him and to just show up at his boarding school was a little bizarre. Speaking of Travers, he’s grown up quite a bit! I have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ve seen of him.

Now for the positive. I absolutely loved the Gabby versus Edie competition in the bar. Both Nicolette Sheridan and Eva Longoria Parker looked great and were at the top of their game. Watching a single Gabby duke it out with Edie was hilarious. The scene on the playground wasn’t bad either, although Edie’s premonition of her early death was a little melodramatic.

All of the other stories seemed a little blah to me. I did like the scene at the cowboy bar though. It’s typical Edie to find what’s probably the only bar in town full of just men. It was great when she walked in the door and everyone shouted her name. It was good to see her get Lynette less focused on herself and more on the fight as well. I feel like Lynette has a tendency to become self- involved and needs to be called out on it sometimes.

So what were your thoughts on Edie’s last episode? Do you think Marc Cherry did her character justice or just sent her hastily on her way? And what are your favorite Edie moments from throughout the years? Tell me below!
