DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES Season Finale: Everbody Says Don’t

May 18, 2009 by  

A round of applause for Tricia who has so kindly taken on the task of reviewing DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES every week for us.  I am so thankful for her contributions and I’m happy that she’ll be covering the show for us next year too.  And thanks to all of you that were part of the DH community here on GMMR. Kudos!


Hey everyone! Tonight was the season finale of Desperate Housewives and it was full of shocks and had quite the cliffhanger ending. Before we get to that, however, I want to talk about the other events of tonight’s episode.

Orson discovered Bree’s storage unit last episode and used it to threaten Bree in order to prevent her from divorcing him. Bree, however, no longer has any interest in Orson. In fact, it looks like Bree’s newest love interest is none other then Susan’s ex- husband Karl. This really came out of nowhere, but I’m excited to see where it goes next season. They’re so wrong for each other that they just might work. First Bree has to get rid of Orson though, which I’m sure will be a major part of next season.

Carlos’s teenaged niece is in need of a home and Carlos convinces Gabby to take her in. She’s trouble from the beginning; in no time at all she has the Scavo boys over doing her chores. In fact, it seems like this is a reoccurring theme for her. She has a closet full of designer clothes from various “boyfriends”. Taking in a troubled teenager is a clichéd storyline but this looks like it could have potential for next season. Especially since she’s so perceptive; there’s no doubt in my mind that Gabby is jealous of the attention she attracts from men.

When visiting a college with one of the twins, Tom decides that he wants to return to college to major in, wait for it, Chinese. Lynette, of course, is against this and attempts to use tequila to stop Tom from getting into the school. Once he explains his reasoning behind his choice of major, however, Lynette is all for his return to academia. You see, it appears Tom is smarter then we thought and wants to learn Chinese so he can break into the Chinese market. It’s actually a very good idea. Too bad it’s probably never going to happen. At the end of the episode, Lynette discovers that not only is she pregnant, she’s having twins. Again. I’m excited for this storyline; having two new babies just in time for November sweeps will give Tom and Lynette new challenges as they juggle work and teenagers with their new babies.

Katherine and Mike were headed to Vegas to get married. Susan accepts Dave’s offer to go on a fishing trip in order to get her mind off of the coming nuptials. This, of course, is a bad move as Dave has vengeance on his mind. Mike discovers his plan to murder MJ, however, and leaves Katherine at the airport to go save him and Susan. Dave decides to get some poetic justice and sets it up so that Mike will crash into Dave’s car with MJ inside while Susan watches. Dave has a last minute change of heart, however, and lets MJ out of the car. Mike crashes into Dave, injuring but not killing him. That’s right. Dave’s still alive and is now where he belongs; a mental hospital. I thought this storyline was tied up quite nicely. It was a little prolonged throughout the season but the payoff was worth it. It was a bold choice not to kill off Dave and I’m interested to see if Marc Cherry brings him back next season.

Now for the big cliffhanger, How I Met Your Mother Style. At the very end of the episode we flashed forward two months to a wedding where all of our favorite Wisteria Lane inhabitants were gathered to watch Mike marry his bride. The question is, who is his bride? Is it Katherine, his fiancée, or Susan, his ex-wife who he shared a passionate kiss with after rescuing her from Dave? We won’t know until next season, as the bride was hidden behind a very puffy veil. If I had to guess, I’d say the bride is Susan. Why else would Karl be at the wedding? I don’t think Katherine would have invited him and he didn’t come with Bree as she was sitting with Orson.

I hope everyone enjoyed tonight’s episode and this season as much as I did. The five-year leap forward was a great idea and next season looks just as promising as this year did. Tell me what you thought of the finale below, and I’ll see you all back here next season. Have a great summer!

    Am I crazy, or did they flash to a picture of Dylan, Katherine’s daughter in the church?
