  • Very unsual, very enjoyable.

    I liked the fact that they included so many regulars in that progressive dinner. Nice to see McCluskey and Roy after some missing episodes. And Renee was here after an absence in episode 22 which I did not even notice watching it LOL.

    Bree: She convinced Renee to go with her to the Chuck's soon to be ex's clothes shop to buy many expensive thing and make her happy. Funny scene, but very forgettable. It was nice to see Anita Barone and to see Bree & Chuck having sex for the first time dropping their ethics. Gaby: Eva Longoria was amazing in all of her scenes. She literally stole the show. Lynette: She and Tom finally got away from each other. It was powerful to see that. And their acting was flawless, F. Huffman rocked. Susan: She did not have a storyline in this episode, but it was nice to see her and her family back on the street and her speech at the dinner was touching.

    Renee: I know that she did not have a stable storyline this season, but I enjoy her scenes. She fits in perfectly. And her scenes with Edgar were funny as hell. All in all, this was the best season finale in like 3 years. Keep it up, ladies!moreless
  • Predictable, Unoriginal, Personal...

    This is not the best DH episode, not the best finale. We've seen it all from other shows. We saw what was to come. The usual subtle and enjoyable mysteries of Westeria Lane have been gone for a long time. But if you(like I) have been watching this since the pilot. And was one of those millions who fell in love with it's originality that very instant, you will know how personal the episode was. Specially with Lynette's and Gabrielle's story. The episodes had it moments, one was with, Lynette and Tom, we all expected it to happen but hope it won't have to be. But it is as it is. Her fears were our fears. Gabby has had her moments as well. You feel for her when she confronted Alejandro. Although it wasn't the same as when Carlos realized that Gabby's mom blamed her for what had happened. The anguish in Gabby's eyes and the concern in Carlos' was not the same as it was four years ago. It's not exactly a satisfying ending, but it just is personal. (and I keep on babbling, I didn't love it but I just can't put my finger as to why I don't hate it)moreless
  • The 7th Season Ends With Susan's Return To The Lane. While Celebrating Her Return, Gaby's Stepfather Shows Up On Wisteria Lane.

    What a season finale! This season was so much better than the boring 6th season. The episode's opening scene was shocking and it had great suspense which kept me wanting more and more. The episode is very entertaining and it has many funny moments. The best part of this episode is of course Susan's return. She has been missed. Gaby's storyline with her stepfather has been awesome and this was a superb final face-off between them. Eva Longoria was excellent in this episode. The last 10 minutes were breath taking and scary. The 7th season ends with a crazy cliffhanger which will be the final storyline of the series.moreless
  • An awesome eseason finale!

    This was a terrific way to end this season of Desperate Housewives. I really enjoyed the whole concept of this 'progressive dinner', especially the comment from Karen that "it's not fun, but it's free!".

    Great to see Susan moving back onto the lane, but I am honestly bored of Lynette's and Tom's daram. It has not been interesting at all this season, and I can only hope they come up with something better next year.

    As for Bree, today was a little better. I enjoyed the scene at the ex's boutique, particularly Bree's very different outfit! That was quite hilarious!

    By far the best storyline of the day was Gabrielle's! Teh scene in the woods was epic, and the end of the episode, which I shna't spoil, was brilliant too! All up, this was a brilliant season finale and a great cliffhanger! Let's hope next season is just as great! :)moreless
  • What a cliffhanger........

    Well this episode achieved what any season finale should do... leave me wanting more and this episode well and truly did the ending twist was so juicy and excited i can hardly wait for season 8, however other then that this finale didnt leave us with much to expect from season 8, i think tom and lynette breaking up was a pretty good think there relaionship had grown somwhat stale over the years so this should give lynette a chance to find some new fresh storylines next year, gaby will obvo have dark days ahead with carlous killing her stepfather, im also excited for brees storylines i am enjoying her relationship with chuck, he is a much better suit for her then keith ever was and the two actors actually have really good chemistry with one another which is really good, this epsiode didnt really set anything up for susan other then the face that she has returned to the lane so i am excited to see what the writers have in store for her next year, renee didnt have anything exciting to do in this episode she provived abit of comic releif and that is about it, vanessa williams has been wasted on this show so i hope the writers have some good stuff for renee next year,

    overall though this was a pretty decent finale with some great twists and i certianily can not wait to see what happens nextmoreless
