So I thought we could have a discussion regarding various things/stories about the show, and what could have happened if they played out differently. We all know there's been dropped storylines for various reasons, but what if those behind the scenes issues never went down? Let's talk about how things could have gone down.
I'll start with the most obvious: Edie's death. Had she not died in season 5, what would have become of her character? I think it would have been interesting if perhaps she had been a victim of the Fairview Strangler (though not murdered) or if she and Gabby had teamed up together to find out Angie's secrets. And then in season 7 she could have had Lee's role in Paul's story (with some minor tweaks), thus putting her in the position of neighborhood pariah yet again before making up with the girls, this time for good. This could be accomplished by helping her cover up the Alejandro murder. Season 8 she could have had Renee's story, getting her happy ending by marrying Ben.
And if Edie had stuck around, I'm assuming Renee would have never existed.
What do you guys think would have happened with Edie had she stuck around for seasons 6-8?
