After an on-screen kiss between Susan and Jessie, “Desperate Housewives” moves on with another shocking upturn. This may as well be the episode where a main character is dead. Nicollette Sheridan who plays Edie Brit had announced her departure from the show by having her character killed in an electric shock. The March 22 episode is aptly called “A Spark to Pierce the Dark”. Bree considers selling her business to save her marriage, Lynette is threatened by her new boss, boundaries are crossed for Gaby and Carlos, Katherine is caught in the most unexpected of circumstances and Edie’s worst fears come true.
Spoiled previously, Edie’s death will take an effect on the remaining housewives who must now find Edie’s 15-year-old son Travers to inform him about his mother’s death. The housewives are set for a road trip that turns out to be a good bonding experience. Meanwhile, Neal McDonough who plays Edie’s psychotic husband Dave Williams dished out on the episode, saying “I had to do something nasty to my wife in the show. It was hard for me because Nic played my wife all year and she has become such a great friend.” He added, “I go hunting in the woods and I’m not hunting for deer. (It’s) a little WWE.”
Any scoop on Sunday’s murder-ific episode of Desperate Housewives?
We just checked in with Marc Cherry at the Douglas Blasdell Foundation Outreach event, and he told us, “On Sunday, the question will be asked, ‘Who’s in trouble on Wisteria Lane?’ The press is putting out one story, but it’s possible that there’s another Housewife whose life is on the line.” Gulp! As for Cherry’s true feelings about Nicollette, Cherry says: “The thing I’ve said to Nicollette I will say publicly: What a great broad. What fun we have working together. She’s a throwback kinda dame.”
Is there any way we can keep Neal McDonough on Desperate Housewives even though his character Dave is total psychosauce?
Just asked Marc Cherry that and he tells us, “I will tell you quite honestly that I had a discussion with Neal McDonough today. I can tell you, he is not only a great actor, but what a nice guy.” But wait, a discussion about what? What did you decide?! Aaargh! The world’s hottest melanin-challenged man must stay.
