  • The 5th Season Ends With Dave Taking Susan And MJ To A Fishing Trip, While Mike Finds Out About Dave's Plan. Does Dave Reach His Endgame?

    My favorite finale so far of the series (7 Finales). The finales of "Desperate Housewives" are always something special. The mysterys are solved in a very clever way and the cast is always at top form. Well this finale is no expection. This season's mystery has been predictable but it has been very entertaining from the very beginning. Casting Neal McDonough as Edie's new mysterious husband was a terrific move from the writers. No other man can do such role as well as he could. That aside, this finale is dramatic and heart-pounding. Mike found out about Dave's plans in a very clever way. The scenes with Dave, Susan and MJ are very good. In fact, they are even frightening. Seeing just Dave's plan unfold was awesome. My heart was racing from the very beginning of this episode and it sure ended in the same way. The conclusion to this "Dave" plot was AWESOME! It was plausible throughout and just plain entertaining. The group hug of the Delfino's was brilliant because it was emotional. Susan and Mike are ment for each other. James Denton and Teri Hatcher give their best performances in the series to date. This episode ends with a cliffhanger which is better than the previous season's cliffhanger.
