Are Mike and Katherine in it for the long haul on Desperate Housewives?
According to Dana Delany, the two seem to be here to stay. “I don’t think they know what the finale is yet. We have two more [episodes] left. I love working with Jamie Denton (Mike), and I hope that that continues, and I think it will because we had a nice little scene this week that we shot where we get good news.” Hmmm, now what sort of good news might that be? Usually when a couple becomes engaged they don’t refer to it as “getting good news.” We’re thinking it might be something more along the lines of a little bundle of joy.E!Online

‘Housewives’ scoop: Gale Harold returns May 3
Source: The Ausiello Files
Six months after being seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, Gale Harold, now fully recovered, returns to Desperate Housewives as Susan’s ex, Jackson, on May 3. And I do mean fully recovered.
“Quite frankly, I think he looks even better [than before the crash],” says series creator Marc Cherry with a laugh, adding that Jackson reappears with a “very important question for Susan — one that she’s kind of stunned by.” (I’m thinking it’ll be something along the lines of *i** *o* *a*** *e?) Will you marry me?
Harold’s unexpected hiatus forced Cherry to do some fancy footwork storytelling-wise — we learned through Susan that Jackson abruptly left town to pursue a teaching opportunity — but the scribe says it all worked out in the end. “We were planning to end his storyline [around midseason],” he explains. “But because of the accident, we get to bring him back for the end of the season, which will be a nice kind of full circle journey for Susan in season 5.”
As for season 6? Although Cherry says no decision has been made about Harold returning next fall, he hints that the once-commitment-shy actor may be warming to the idea of sticking around long-term. “I think Gale may have changed his priorities [since the accident],” Cherry concedes. “But those decisions won’t be made until May.”
Happy Harold is heading back to Wisteria Lane? Theories as to what surprising question he’ll be posing to Susan? Hoping Jackson will extend his run into next season? Sound off below!

Is Desperate Housewives playing another trick on us re. Edie’s death?
Ausiello: Nah, they really killed the ol’ broad this time. But Edie returns in a big way in the April 19 episode via newly-created flashbacks with each of the main housewives. It’ll be just like the 100th episode, only swap out Beau Bridges and insert Nicollette Sheridan.
A main character will seriously consider getting a facelift. It’s not a housewife mulling a little nip/tuck it’s a husband. (Michael Ausiello)
A certain redhead will start spending a lot of time with one of Susan’s exes. Hint: He’s the one you go to when you want a divorce not your toilet fixed. (Michael Ausiello)

Susan recalls their first meeting, Lynette reflects on a memorable night out, Bree is reminded of the thoughtfulness she bestowed upon Orson and Gaby remembers fondly a night of friendly competition.
