season 6’s finale of desperate housewives (2004-2012) starts off with lynette (felicity huffman) locked up with the fairview strangler and in labour, while angie and her son danny (drea de matteo and beau mirchoff) are being held hostage by her psycho ex patrick (john barrowman). then murderous paul young (mark moses) will move back into the neighbourhood… and susan’s (terri hatcher) house! but these aren’t even the most most-jaw dropping moments of the season…
crazy katherine (dana delany) called 911 before stabbing herself and accused mike (james denton) of attacking her after he told her that he’d only ever loved susan (episode 9). a small plane (piloted by dan castellaneta – the voice of homer simpson) crashed into wisteria lane’s christmas village and killed karl meyer (richard burgi), paralysed orson (kyle maclachlan) and led to the miscarriage of one of lynette’s twins (episode 10). bree (marcia cross) wheeled orson into the garden and hosed him down after he didn’t bath for a week and called her “a whore” (episode 13). katherine kissed susan’s stripper friend robin (julie benz), had a hot, sexy dream about her, then hopped into bed with robin (episode 16). danny’s pal eddie (josh zuckerman) is the fairview strangler and killed preston’s (max carver) con artist fiancée irina (helena mattsonn) for rejecting his romantic advances (episode 19). rex’s (steven culp) secret son sam (sam page) blackmailed bree into giving him her catering company by telling bree that he knew that her son andrew (shawn pyfrom) ran over and killed carlos’s (ricardo chavira) mom (episode 22). nb! season 7 starts on tuesday 10 march at 22:30 on sabc3.
there’s no shortage of drama on desperate housewives when marcia cross is around as bree.
