Desperate Housewives Finale

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
OK, I know I can't be the only one here who watches this show!

What did you think of the season finale? OMG, Mike might be psycho Zach's father?!?

I've been reading on CNN about the speculation that Rex might not actually be dead, since we didn't see the body. (OK, um, if I were Bree I would have rushed to the hospital, but maybe that's just me...)

And John telling Carlos. Is he nuts, selfish or just suicidal?!?

And now that we know all about what happened with Mary Alice and Dierdre, what's the big mystery going to be next season?

Brendan and I LOOOVE Desparate Housewives so we DEFINITELY watched it!!! I couldn't believe how many shockers there were!

You know I thought the same thing you did Heidi when Brie didn't rush right to the hospital. But then again, she IS Brie so she doesn't quite follow the norms! I didn't hear the rumor about him not being dead! Wouldn't that be interesting?!

Oh my gosh and the thing with Carlos and John! I can't believe he'd do that either! He's just can't get it out of his head that he and Mrs. Solese (sp?) are destined to actually be together. At least there's no way Carlos WON'T be convicted now.

As soon as they started talking about it being Deirdre's baby I had a feeling it might be Mike's. Perhaps she was sleeping around at the time though as well??

Well anyway, I'm going to be dying for the new season to start. I just love all of the dark comedy in that show and think the cast does an incredible job!!!

Yeah, the whole Mrs. Solis thing has always bugged me. I mean, if he's SLEEPING with you, shouldn't he at least be able to call you by your first name? Shouldn't this have occurred to him at some point?

I felt like such a dolt for not even thinking about Rex not actually being dead when I read that. But with the labored breathing and shaky note and everything, I just followed right along...

Yeah, John is quite naive about the whole thing. Obviously if there was potential he'd be calling her Gabriel and not Mrs! It's not like he just called her that when they would see each other out in public either. Even when they'd be in private he was still calling her that. Definitely not the grounds for a real relationship!

I really wonder what's going to happen with the whole Zach thing. I mean, they left with Mike walking into his house where Zach had Susan captive with the intent of killing Mike! How will that whole thing be handled?!

They do such a great job of making you believe one thing and having it turn out another way on that show! I just can't believe we'll have to wait until the next season to really see what's going on. This show is just so exciting!

Ok, I really don't get to watch this show now cause I am always out during Sunday night. Before I get to watch it a lot.

What I've heard, Rex is not dead, and there is another guy who will play as Rex.

Mary Alice have a twin sister, Mary Alice didn't kill herself that was her twin sister. Mary Alice was a nurse and she stole this baby (Zach) from the hospital. It's Mike's son.

That's all I read, cause the magazine was not really mine.

Wow another guy to play Rex. That would be odd. And if that's true about Mary Alice that will be QUITE the shocker in the new season! Can't wait to see if those things are true!!

Then don't read these threads, Fran!!!
It will ruin the whole show for you!

I LOVE this show..and its dark satire.

Well, they have already given us the NEW mystery for next season.
Its the black couple and son? that moved in (Alfre Woodard is the woman).
Why did she not want Edie going into the house? hmmmm....

I think it will be a new family that will be the start the ball rolling every season kind of thing....I wonder if Mary Alice will still narrate?

I also thought Rex might not be dead...It was left too open...
And Brie is just Brie...thanks the doctor, puts the phone down calmly and goes on to polish the silverware! But then you see her lose it...FINALLY!

And I really wonder what will happen with John and Gabrielle having the baby??

And what is with Zach having some kind of weapon in every episode?
I hope Mike doesn't die..

I cannot wait til next season...It was so great how they tied everything together at the end but still left some cliffhangers...

I LOVE this show. So does my husband he cannot wait for Sundays and the Desparate Divas.

I heard about Rex not being dead. When I watched I thought that maybe he would be the narator next season with the Mary Alice mystery being solved and his just beginning. How creepy is that pharmacist. How can Bree not see through him but the minature golf scene had me falling off the chair. I hope he isn't dead I love Rex. He is the perfect foil for Bree. And Bree's daughter is going to be pissed if her father really is dead and Bree had to make the bed before taking him to the hospital and what will her son do without Rex there to mitigate his psycho behavior. Ahhhh I can't wait til next season.

And Lynette. I would be mortified if I was busted like that going behind her husbands back and my husband would kill me. Interesting to see if her husband can handle those twins. They are a handful.

I could go on and on about all of them but this is already one of the longest post I've done. I love them all. The show has a great sense of irony. Most of the girls best laid plans just seem to fall apart on them with a great mix of humor, sadness and just plain real life stuff.

I thought the ending was amazing. Closed up just enough mystery to leave you satisfied but leaving enough so that you cannot wait until next season.

Oh i love this show! But I will be home in NZ when it starts again

So I am really hoping and praying that it is in NZ!!!!!!!!!!

Gabrielle and John have a baby? oooooooo i soo cannot wait to see the rest of thes episodes!

yesterday it was the episode where gabrielles mother in law catches her in bed with John and snaps a picture of it, and as she is running back to the taxy, what was her name again.. the fussy one with the red hair's son runs MIL over.
Then gabrielle takes the camera and puts it in her pocket!

Great point about the new family!! So much happened in that last episode that I practically forgot all about that! That whole scene with them and Edie was DEFINITELY strange. Obviously they've got something to hide!

well, i can't believe that Rex could get the hospital to call & say he was dead when he wasn't - if they did, they'd be opening themselves up for a major lawsuit! but TV people do things differently than those of us in the real world...

yeah, i got the impression that Zach was Mike's biological son, too...

i think John's safe for a while - Carlos will be incarcerated after that courtroom explosion!

i think the 'Mary Alice identical twin' thing would be almost as annoying as the 'it was all a dream' season of Dallas... i don't know if i'll keep watching if that happens!

Alfre Woodard's family/situation piqued my interest. just what are they hiding?

& i'm guessing that, sooner or later, Paul will get loose & return?

i'll have to watch nest season - good cliffhanger!

post #15 of 21
I'm SO excited about the Alfre Woodard storyline. She's a great actress and it's nice to see that their neighborhood is becoming a bit more integrated!!!
I love the show, but I'm not really happy with how they handle domestic violence. Remember the episode where Susan was trying to convince her mother to stay with her abusive boyfriend (Bob Newhart)? I was not very pleased with that. Other than that, I'm hooked and can't wait to see how they outdo themselves next season!!
post #16 of 21
Amy - I thought it was Susans mother who was the abusive one, as it was seen in the parking lot of his restaurant. But I could be wrong.

I just talked to my mum this morning and she said that DH is coming to NZ soon - SAMMMMM do you know anything?

Yeah, and how about when Carlos bruised Gabby's wrists when they were fighting about the post-nup? I thought she handled it so wrong...I would have just told him to tear it up right now because a domestic violence call to the police would surely violate his in-house arrest (keeping in the manipulative character that she is)! But no, she just sat there and took it.

I think it's because she's psychotic herself. They keep eluding to something really sinister with her character... those obviously planned weird looks she gives... I suppose we'll see what her plan is next season!
post #20 of 21
cant believe i have to wait so long to find out!

what do you thinks going to happen to zac? i think mike's going to tell him who is father is then he's going to get shipped of to live with his dying grandfather who can use his fortune to pay for all the counselling he obviously needs.
post #21 of 21
I absolutely love this show...Zack does too! I can't wait til next season. I won't really talk about it though so I don't ruin it for the others...but the suspense is killing me!!
