Episodes 5.23 and 5.24: Everybody Says Don’t / If It’s Only in Your Head (Season finale)
Airdate: May 17, 2009 from 9 to 11 p.m.
Hour 1 written by John Pardee and Joey Murphy; directed by Bethany Rooney; Hour 2 written by Jeffrey Richman; directed by David Grossman
The previous four finales have featured eight deaths, four characters held at gunpoint, three weddings, three new kids, two women arrested, two affairs revealed, the beginning of an affair, an engagement, an almost-engagement, a kidnapping, a fake suicide, a fake pregnancy, a hit and run, over a hundred thousand in stolen drug money, and a woman attacked with a hockey stick.
Gaby’s niece Ana (Maiara Walsh) moves in with her.
Orson threatens to blackmail Bree over the robbery she committed. A menacing thug threatens Orson to stay away from Bree. Bree can’t comprehend the beating Orson receives. Richard Burgi guest stars as Karl.
Lynette’s upset with Tom’s idea that he go back to school, but she eventually adapts. Is Lynette’s cancer back? Nope, she’s pregnant!
Susan accepts Dave’s “friendly” gesture. Gale Harold continues to appear as Jackson. Lily Tomlin appears as Roberta. Dave’s finally ready to have his revenge, and both Susan and MJ are in danger. Before Mike and Katherine can elope, he’s called away to deal with an emergency. The mystery comes to an end.
Reportedly, the show has dropped the plan to have a character from the first two seasons return in the show’s final five minutes. Instead, the season will, however, end with a jaw-dropping twist that Marc Cherry came up with at the last minute.
Near the end of the show, DH will take a small step into the future; nowhere near as much as five years, but perhaps more like the six months between the end of season 2 and the start of season 3, or even the one month jump near the beginning of season 4. In the final minutes, a couple will marry.
Question: Please tell me that Dave doesn’t kill MJ on Desperate Housewives. I don’t know if I could handle that. Ausiello: I can confirm that the finale includes a cemetery scene. And I can also confirm that MJ is in it. Source: The Ausiello Files
Question: It would make my day extra Smurfy if you could tell me who’s coming back to Desperate Housewives, and if he/she will be back next season. Ausiello: No one is coming back. That idea, first teased by Marc Cherry last month at PaleyFest ’09, has been scrapped. Source: The Ausiello Files

Please clue us in on the Desperate Housewives finale! Will Lynette be adding to her clan? MICKEY: Read this and see if you still think that Marc Cherry would knock up the pregnancy-prone (and -averse) Lynette a fourth time. During that pregnant pause, I’ll tell you that a character from Seasons 1 and 2 will show up in the last scene of the finale, and I’m hearing that he/she will be presented in a very different light — that is, probably fully clothed.

Seems a major character from the series’ first two seasons will return in the last five minutes of next month’s finale for a huge surprise. “DH” creator Marc Cherry wouldn’t say who, but when the panel moderator brought “Gaby’s gardener boy John” up, Cherry smirked and said, “Well I think we’re done here.” Does this mean Jesse Metcalfe is coming back to Fairview? Or was Mr. Cherry just throwing us off the trail of the returning character’s real identity? An insider tells me to expect Metcalfe back. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
Kyle MacLachlan teases, “I think Orson is much more dangerous than Dave. I’m sorry, I like Neal [McDonough] very much, but in terms of danger quotient, Orson can do things with a gas mask, watch out!” Sounds like a mystery for next season, especially since Orson is to blame for Edie’s death. “As far as the scripts go, now they haven’t really addressed it, but I have a feeling it’s going to come back to haunt me,” adds Kyle.

Gabrielle’s niece, Ana’s first episode will be the season finale, but she’ll be back for an arc in the fall. (TV Guide)
‘Housewives’ wedding mystery: Who’s getting hitched?
It may not be a game-changer along the lines of last year’s five-year time jump, but this should still get the kids talking: Desperate Housewives will conclude its season on May 17 with a surprise wedding, sources confirm to me exclusively. The nuptials are so top secret that even members of the show’s cast and crew don’t know who’s walking down the aisle. “People are being told on a need-to-know basis,” whispers a Housewives insider. “Marc [Cherry] doesn’t want a repeat of last year when the flash-forward thing leaked.” His hard-line approach seems to be working: I don’t have the foggiest idea who’s getting hitched.
‘Desperate Housewives’ finale: Is Dave Williams gonna die?
Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
The two hour finale of “Desperate Housewives” airs this Sunday and there are more than a few things going down. Tom Scavo’s constant mid-life crisis will continue. The latest? The poor guy thinks he’s going back to school… to major in Chinese.
But, more importantly, the season ender is the perfect opportunity to get some resolution on the Dave Williams story. Is Neal McDonough, who plays Dave, getting killed off? His character, though not completely unlikeable, is a total loon, so he has to go at some point, right? The writers have led us to believe that he’s currently contemplating the murder of little M.J. Delfino. And, come on, we can’t keep an attempted kid killer on Wisteria Lane indefinitely. Also, Neal McDonough was gabbing with Barbara and the girls on “The View” this morning and when Joy said, “When they hired you, weren’t you supposed to die?,” McDonough responded with, “No, I’m the mystery for the year so I wasn’t supposed to die ’til the very last episode.” Uh, yeah, that’s this Sunday. So, I’m thinking either “DH” creator Marc Cherry had a change of heart and decided to veer off course, maybe getting Dave Williams a little mental help, so he can stick around.. OR Edie’s creepy husband will wave goodbye to Wisteria this weekend. Predictions?
Season 6 spoilers
ABC has picked up the show for a sixth season.
Julie (Andrea Bowen) will be back. Karl (Richard Burgi) will be back for many episodes.
Maiara Walsh continues to be a series regular as Gabrielle’s niece Ana.
Katherine becomes insecure as Mike pulls away from her.
While DH creator Marc Cherry had hoped to bring back a character in the final minutes of season 5, that’s not happening, but he’d like to bring back the character midway through next season.
I’m really worried about Susan after last night’s episode of Desperate Housewives. Dave is out for blood. What’s the scoop? Never fear, Teri Hatcher doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon. “I intend on having a job on Desperate Housewives next year, but it’s definitely [a] dramatic [finale],” she tells us. As we teased before, Susan’s not the only one in trouble on Wisteria Lane, so the real question you should be asking is, How far does Dave cross the line. Source: Kristin on E!Online
Any word on if they’re going to replace Edie on Desperate Housewives next season?
While that does seem to be a common occurrence on our favorite fictional street, Teri Hatcher wants to make sure fans know that Nicollette Sheridan‘s Edie cannot be replaced. “I don’t think you can go at it like ‘replacing her.’ It will open up an arena for new, imaginative things to happen.” But Brenda Strong teased, “I think Wisteria Lane will definitely be shy of an Edie. I don’t think anything is written in stone, but there’s room for a new neighbor.” Thoughts on who should move in this time around? Source: Kristin on E!Online
