We’ve had tears, tantrums, laughter and at times absolutely mind boggling moments throughout the eight seasons of Desperate Housewives gifted to us by Marc Cherry, but if you’re one of those fans who have stuck by the show for its entire run, last night will have been one of the most emotionally charged television moments in history.
We had the result of Bree’s trial, Renee and Ben’s dream wedding, a pregnant Julie Mayer, a dying Mrs. McCluskey, a broken marriage we were all willing to work out, Gabby and Carlos’s guilty consciences and so much more, and it was all delivered absolutely perfectly. Nothing was predictable about this episode and everything was timed to perfection.
Not only were all our housewives loose ends tied up and dealt with, we also learned that Wisteria Lane would of course continue to develop and run around in circles when it comes to some neighbours keeping secrets. Not a hint at more seasons to come in the future as some might think, but simply a nod in the direction of keeping the street itself alive, whether our housewives will be there to see it unfold or not.
It’s been wild, and at times difficult to watch unfold, but it has certainly held a place in my heart and will forever be one of my favourite television shows to ever grace my screen. Thank you, Desperate Housewives.
