May 17, 2009 — Tonight’s Desperate Housewives is doubly exceptional. Of course, it’s the Season 5 Finale which probably leaves us with another cliffhanger for the next installment.
For the first hour, the episode titled “Everybody Says Don’t” takes the screen. “Everybody Says Don’t” is the twenty-third episode of the show’s fifth season.
Gabrielle (Eva Longoria Parker) is upset when Carlos’s (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) family stops for a visit and asks the Solises to take Carlos’s niece under their wing.
Lynette (Felicity Huffman) gets upset when Tom (Doug Savant) tells her about his latest “bright idea.” As blackmail hounds Bree (Marcia Cross) when Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) threatens her, Susan (Teri Hatcher) finally decides to accept Dave’s (Neal McDonough) “friendly” gesture.
Meanwhile, in the 111th episode (24th of season 5) of the ABC television series Desperate Housewives, “If It’s Only In Your Head”, Lynette adapts to Tom’s decision to go back to school, Orson takes a beating that Bree cannot comprehend. When Lynette finds out that she is pregnant, she decides to get an abortion. Carlos’s niece, Ana, moves into the Solis home, despite Gaby’s objection. Susan and M.J.’s lives are in grave danger at the hands of Dave and death comes once again to Wisteria Lane.
Also, this will be the last episode to credit Nicollette Sheridan (Edie Britt) as a series regular.
ABC confirmed a sixth season on April 24, 2009. The sixth season of Desperate Housewives, is expected to be produced in 2009 and to premiere on ABC in the fall of 2009. It will take place in the years of 2014-2015 following the five year jump in season 5.
Like I’ve said Edie Britt will not be featured as part of the principal cast. The four main casts Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross), and Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker) – and the series’ narrator, Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong), are all expected to return as regular castmembers next season given that they were contracted for the whole show’s run. But new Housewife Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany) is also expected to return, as she has been contracted for at least three seasons. Kathryn Joosten is expected to either retain her recurring role as Karen McCluskey, join the principal cast or join Lily Tomlin in a possible Desperate Housewives spin-off.
Also, Julie (Andrea Bowen) will be back. Karl (Richard Burgi) will be back for many episodes. And Maiara Walsh will be a series regular as Gabrielle’s niece Ana.
Anyway, I’m still trying to find a way to watch Desperate Housewives Season 5 Finale Online.
