  • Paul is back, Susan leaves the Lane

    Relatively mixed feelings. It did have the excitement of the finale, and hooked me in. Plots were wrapped up and others interested that make me very excited for next season.

    Here are the pros and cons:


    PAUL. Having him back will hopefully make next season as wonderful as Season 1. He added so much to the show. Hopefully with him back we'll hear more about Mary Alice, Zach, and Felicia. Obviously, he got out of jail for "killing" Felicia so we'll find out why, and he also seems to be after someone on the lane, there has to be a reason why he's back and why he has that suspicious look on his face.

    Juanita, "Mama"- I was really annoyed that we didn't get to see Gabby's reaction, but hopefully we will see it (and Carlos') next season and I'm excited to see what happens. Also, again, it brings up 1st season plotlines again, and those are unbeatable.

    Angie- her plotline was wrapped up nicely. It wasn't the most interesting mystery of the series, but I'm glad Patrick is gone and everyone else in her family is okay. There was tension and excitement during the scene with the bomb.

    Gabby- she was just absolutely hilarious the entire time, with her Angie accent, her hasty goodbye to Susan, etc. Also it was nice having involved in the mystery since she usually is not. That usually goes to Bree and/or Susan and this time it went to Gabby and Lynette.

    Also,, Lynette's baby was born and she's healthy.


    Eddie- After all the anticipation for the town strangler, I hated the way this was wrapped up. It was so a anti-climactic. It was exciting when Lynette was being held hostage while in labor but then Eddie turns himself in and nothing is mentioned again. We don't see Lynette leaving his house, Tom's (or anyone's) reactions to the fact that she was being held hostage by Eddie and that the baby was born at his house, and most importantly, we don't see anyone's reaction to the news that the strangler was identified. I would have loved to see the cops come and take Eddie, and Lynette leaving the house, getting the medical care she really needs, and recounting the events to Tom and all her friends, then getting a reaction (particularly from Susan!) about the strangler's identity. Especially because Susan had that nice relationship with Eddie, I would have loved to see what she thought of the fact that he was the one who almost killed her daughter. I think this was the worst part of the finale.

    Bree- As much as I love the discussion of a very good topic from Season 1 (Juanita being run over), I hate that she just gave everything up to Sam. Also, I really like her and Orson and I'm sad that he left her. It also seemed a bit too rushed. And it was weird considering most of the season we suspected an end to their relationship because Bree was filing for divorce, then they're okay and you think it will stay that way, then he leaves anyway.

    Susan- I hate that they're moving out of Wisteria Lane. I hope she will stay be a main character in the show, but the whole point is that they're all supposed to live together on the same street, and this just ruins it for no reason. Also, another fight between Susan and Mike? Haven't we seen enough?

    I have mixed feelings about the nurse/someone having a child who's not theirs topic. It is interesting, but it is also kind of stupid. I mean now one of the housewives (I'm assuming) has to find out their child isn't theirs? What the hell? It just seems forced.

    Either way, I'm very excited for Season 7moreless
  • A great season :D

    I don't understand why this season has such low ratings. I loveee it :D like every other season it had its high and low butt overall it was a great story. I'm sorry that Angie had to escape, I love her character.
  • The 6th Season Ends With Lynette Giving Birth To Her Baby. Bree Must Hand Over The Company To Sam. Angie Confronts Patrick With An Explosive Conclusion.

    The 6th season was not the best season the series could offer but it got the ending it always deserved. I really liked this episode in many aspects. It was plausible throughout and just plain entertaining. The acting was really intense and excellent. Drea De Matteo gives her best performance in the series. I won't spoil the ending from you but it is literally an explosive finale. I was really happy about it. I'm sad Sam destroyed the company that Bree had been building for many years. Poor Bree. I'd like to see where the storyline of the Delfinos will go. The scenes with Lynette and Eddie were marvelous. Flawless end to good season! The last scene was really intense. See ya all in season 7!moreless
  • Booom baaam booom baaam boom paul....huh?! *dies*

    Okay so, I watched the first episode of the finale and this one about three days apart and I can just say something, great idea!

    The tension was just too much too handle. I love how Desperate Housewives is focusing more on being thrilling in the last couple of seasons, then on being smart.

    Yes the storylines are over the top, but hey it's Desperate Housewives. If they're not then why are watching?

    Okay, the storylines of this episode:

    Gabrielle tries helping the Bolens by attempting to get the aid of Patrick. When that fails, she tricks a depressed, leaving Susan into helping her unitentionally while she tries to help Danny escape. Meanwhile Lynette is helf captive by Eddie who wants to take her with him until he knows he could escape but that plan goes to hell when Lynette's water breaks.

    Bree hands over her company to Sam, who by the way is one the most annoying and punch worthy characters ever to be featured on this show.

    Oscar worthy episode.

    Gripping is one word you could use to describe it. The way the last fifteen minutes played out were simply emotionally rollercoastered!

    I can go on and on about how nerve wracking it was to just sit there waiting to see what will happen. The ending was a big whoa for me! I mean Paul is back. Way to get everybody excited for season seven.

    Flawless finale.moreless
  • A solid end to a very lazy season of Desperate Housewives

    Why is this Episode scoring so low?? I felt that this was one of the best season finales that Desperate Housewives has given us, I thought is was funny tense and just abit sillly which is all the things you want and expect from Desperate housewives.Gabys storyline was by far the best and ive enjoyed her getting involved in the season mistery arc this year. Her impression of angie wass hilarious!! Susans storyline also had a few laughs in there and some good drama between herself and mike.Lynettes story was abit silly espically considering how quick she gave birth. The bolens leaving i felt was the right descion and Paul young returing is exciting to say the least. bRING ON SEASON 7moreless
