  • I was disappointed that no previews for the new season were shown. But I can't wait til next week....

    Okay, this was a good episode to catch up with all the lives of everyone on Wisteria Lane throughout all the seasons. They did an awesome job of putting together every little detail on all the girls storylines up to the finale. Though I was really hoping to get a glimpse of the new season. Maybe some clips from next week's episode that haven't been out yet. The only thing that really changed was Mary Alice's narration. Although, some of what she said was from previews episodes, like that legendery line about Edie's "conquests" that was from the pilot. I have been counting the days since the finale to see what's gonna happen. I think this season might be the juiciest of all, and I can't wait til sunday!!!!!moreless
