08/24 – [Jackson and Susan] met when she hired him to paint her house. […] Edie Britt doesn’t marry just anyone, so it’s a safe bet that her new hubby, Dave, has some special qualities. Chief among them: “He’s just so handsome,” kids [Neal] McDonough, 42, who plays the sucessful motivational speaker on a secret mission. According to McDonough, Edie has no idea of her husband’s shady past: “Dave has revenge on his mind, which you’ll see in the first episode.” [Marc] Cherry won’t say who Dave is out to get, or why. But, he reveals, “Dave is a low rent Tony Robiins who comes to Wisteria Lane very determined to be everyone’s best friend. And we don’t know if he married Edie just to move to the Lane.” […] “On Housewives, I make Edie realize through positive thinking that she doesn’t need to be so cutting all the time[,” reveals McDonough.] Dave will also bring music to Wisteria Lane as he and Tom Scavo form what McDonough calls a “Desperate Houseguys rock band” in Lynette’s garage. “I’m the drummer,” says McDonough, who’s been taking lessons for a month. “Orson plays the keyboard, Tom plays the bass, and Mike sings and plays lead guitar.” Source: TV Guide

07/20 – “We’ll get [Gabby] back to looking glamorous somewhere in the middle of the season,” [says Marc Cherry. … Teri] Hatcher says the five-year jump has made Susan less needy. “After years of being the kind of person who is like, ‘Please love me!,’ for many reasons that will be revealed over the new season, she’s now a person who’s closed off to love and not so searching and needy of it.” [… Someone asked] a question about the new man in Susan’s life, played by Gale Harold. “He’s an interesting, artsy guy,” says Cherry, “who’s very different from the previous man in her life.” […] Edie will return to Wisteria Lane “in a very surprising way,” Cherry teases. And what of the new man in her life, Neal McDonough? “He will be bringing the new mystery with him, and all I’m going to tell you is that he has revenge on his mind.” […] Cherry says Andrea Bowen and the rest of the show’s original, pre-flash-forward kids will return in flashbacks.
