After a two-week worth of break, “” will return with a large scale, a murder. On the March 8 episode called “Crime Doesn’t Pay”, Edie digs into Dave’s past after a chance encounter with an old acquaintance.

Meanwhile, Bree tells Lynette she’ll help Tom secure a new job, but the best intentions will reach a tempestuous end and reveal Orson’s shameful misdeeds; Gaby finds herself in a precarious position when Carlos’ adulterous boss begins using her to cover for himself as he continues to cheat on his wife.

Recently, the show has been made the center of the media after Nicolette Sheridan, the actress who portrays Edie, is said to leave the show. Her last episode which is still unknown, will see her killed through a wire shock. The rest of the desperate housewives then must break the news to Edie’s son. Source: Ace Showbiz TV News

  • The Scavos sell their restaurant, but now they need new jobs. Bree wants to help her friend Lynette by finding Tom a job, and to do so, she throws a dinner party where Bree’s publisher is interested in giving Tom a job. Lynette might be interested in the job herself, though.
  • Bree learns that Orson is stealing things. The Hodges’ marriage is in trouble!
  • While Dave and Edie are at a liquor store, a priest recognizes him as Dave Dash. Though Dave tries to keep Edie from becoming more suspicious, Edie begins to investigate her husband’s past.
  • A housewife kills a man.  The victim has appeared before, and the death will have ramifications in the next episode.

  • Carlos gets a promotion, which will lead to him working with Lucy (Lesley Boone), an overweight, attractive woman in her late 30s –who happens to be Carlos’s ex-roommate; she’ll likely appear in more than one episode.

Kevin Rahm appears as Lee.

5-18    “A Spark. To Pierce the Dark”   March 22

Don’t miss the end of the episode as Dave takes steps to keep Edie quiet! Edie’s worst fears come true.
  • Boundaries are crossed for Carlos and Gabrielle. (Yes, this is an incredibly vague spoiler.) Lesley Boone again appears as Lucy.
  • Lynette’s threatened by her new boss.

5-19  “Look Into Their Eyes and You See What They Know”  April 19

Not even death will stop Edie from making life uncomfortable for her neighbors. I’m told the surviving housewives will be faced with the grim task of having to track down Edie’s now-15-year-old son, Travers, and break the news to him about his mom’s passing. Of course, the road trip turns out to be a good bonding experience for the ladies, so it’s not a total loss. Source: Michael Ausiello @ EW

  • The women of Wisteria Lane visit Edie’s son Travers at school to tell him what happened to Edie. Edie continues to appear in this episode, but we suspect this is Nicollette Sheridan’s last appearance of the season.
  • In a flashback, Bree visits Orson at prison.
  • In another flashback, Lynette and Edie go to a bar.

5-20  April 26 (presumably)   MAY SWEEPS

  • A nurse comforts a patient with delusions.
  • Someone has an accident at home and a paramedic’s called.
  • We’ll meet some women from the local garden club.

5-24  Season finale  May 17 (probably) MAY SWEEPS

  • The mystery will wrap up.  We suspect it will be Neal McDonough’s last episode as Dave; the show successfully rehabilitated Orson after he put Mike into a coma, but we doubt the show will attempt the same with Dave.
