Desperate Housewives: Rate the Finale!


Spoilers Included


So, what did everyone think of the crazy season finale of Desperate Housewives?? I for one thought that it restored some of the spark that the show has been missing for quite some time!


I'm certainly thrilled that the whole Kayla Scavo thing got tied up, and I know that many of you must be too, as there has been a whole SideReel discussion about wanting to strangle Kayla the devil child.


Of course, the biggest shocker came during the last few minutes of the episode (if you didn't read the spoilers, of course) when the show - drumroll - skipped 5 years into the future!!


I laughed at the news of Lynette's children being juvenile delinquents, as if we would expect anything less of them. Also shocking - Gabrielle had children (and was looking quite a bit more disheveled than we've become accustomed to)?!


However, the biggest surprise by far (and one that managed to not be ruined by spoilers) was obviously the absence of Mike and presence of...some other guy...that Susan was kissing!


If Mike is truly gone, will you guys miss him?


What were your impressions of the finale? Share them below!

Mike was bisexual? and he dies?...it sounds like too much don't you think?.... and if Tom has a corporate job what happened to the pizza place? i agree with julien225, Lynette is too old to have yet another baby!

I really want to know what happened with susan and mike! i mean, i don't feel that they've been the same together for some time, rehab took a toll on their relationship, so it wouldn't surprise me if a couple of years down the track they had totally drifted apart. i'm just glad it wasn't Ian.. god that guy annoyed the hell out of me!! anyway, waiting till september is not going to be easy >( !

I AM FREAKING OUT!!!! Where the HECK did Mike go?!?!?!!? I looooooove Mike! man.. I am already PUMPED for the next season. I am glad that Kayla is gone.. she was a horrible child. I am also glad that Bree's son is back. Is her daughter coming back? Good to know that Dillon is engaged thats sooo awesome. I just want it to keep going! Lynette.. maaaaan her kids are nuts. Gabby finally had kids and I figured as much when they were playing poker and she was dressed waaaay down. I MISS IT ALREADY!! COME BACK! I'M DESPERATE!

O MY GOD! I just finished seeing the season finale. I loved mike? I can't miss him on the show. Thing between him and susan word just starting to work. They just got a baby! But ofcourse its a great season finale. I also liked the 5 years that they skipped so you can see how the kids are as teenagers. I realy diddn't like gaby her kid.. she diddnt realy look that nice. and I didnt like lynette her hair:P! Can't wait for the next season to start! Does anybody know when it starts?

I do feel like Desperate housewives had been lacking the same sharp stories that ignited the show in the first place but this last episode put them back on track. It was very well planned loved the diaglouge throughout the episode. It was funny but very dark too, but thats what embodies this show. Its the perfect finale, it makes u curious to see whats going to happen next, but at the same time it wasnt your typical season finale. im glad the show is back on track, now i just need grey's to get back on track.

No, that guy who susan was kissing, it´s not Adam, or Mike, its a different actor. I hate the season 4 ending, Susan and mike is the best TV couple ever, and they are at least the one reason why I watch desperate housewives, I am very disappointed if James leaves the show. and I am very disappointed that susan and mike was married only 5 years, they have baby and memoryes and everything together. :/ I hope that it is just a joke or something like that.

I loved the finale - the way they all joined together to create a cover story to tell the police pretty much convinced me that this show was back on the right track. Also, I found thing episode had a lot of old elements of humour in it that has been missing for quite some time. And yes, the absence of Mike totally caught me off guard. It will be interesting to see how they explain all of the 5 years' worth of back story - I'm very excited to see how it all unfolds! :) --- one more thing - I was so glad Kayla finally got the boot. Seriously, that kid was messed up.
