Whew! After watching the season finale of Desperate Housewives last night, it dawned on me that if I had just watched episode one and the last fifteen minutes of the finale, that would have sufficed.
Let's see: there was an explanation, a death, a new neighbor, and more questions. Mary Alice killled herself because she had stolen Zach -real name Dana from his drug addicted mother. When Deidre showed up to reclaim Dana, Mary Alice stabbed her. So, to protect her family, she put a gun to her head. Paul nearly got killed by Mike for Diedre's death. A new neighbor, played by Alfre Woodward, and her son moved to Wisteria Lane. I can guess.. son is child molester, or he had an affair with a teacher? Tom quit his job, so Lynette may go back to work. Carlos found out about John and Gabi, via John. Rex died from the heart condition pills George was giving him.
Okay, next season starts with a death and an incriminating note. (Rex thought Bree was trying to kill him). Gee, sounds familiar... The ladies know the truth, or do they?
