“Desperate Housewives” ended their eight-year show Sunday night in a two part series finale with a dramatic death, wedding, birth, murder trial and a look into the future.
The finale featured Marcia Cross’ Bree on trial for the murder of Eva Longoria’s Gabrielle’s perverted stepfather, Alejandro.
Mrs. McCluskey, played by Kathryn Joosten, died from her cancer. However, before her death, she testified at Bree’s trial to make the claim that she was the one who killed Alejandro, saving Gabrielle and Bree.
Viewers had already seen Gabrielle’s husband, Carlos, Ricardo Chavira’s character, unintentionally kill Alejandro at the beginning of this season.
Bree ended up romantically involved with her lawyer, Trip, played by Scott Bakula.
Vanessa Williams’s character Renee married Ben, but on the way, pregnant Julie’s water broke, forcing her mother, Teri Hatcher’s Susan, to take over the limo to get them to the hospital.
Felicity Huffman’s Lynette reconciled with her estranged husband Tom when she made a speech at the wedding.
Mary Alice Young was seen in a flashback, even though she is usually only heard as the show’s narrator.
Also, Dana Delaney’s Katherine returned to Fairview.

Toward the end of the show, the four main housewives were seen sitting around a table playing poker and talking. They promised each other that they would meet to play cards again.
However, the viewers were shown that the future would have them all leaving each other. Gabrielle, Carlos and their family were going to leave Wisteria Lane so she could become a home shopping TV celebrity in Hollywood. Lynette and Tom were moving to New York. Bree was seen moving to Louisville to start a political career.
Susan and her family were the last to move out, but not before we were introduced a new young housewife with her own secrets.
While Susan took one last drive down their neighborhood street, she was being watched over by the ghosts of all who had lived and died there, including her dead lover Mike, played by James Denton, and Mrs. McCluskey.
In the final voiceover, viewers were reminded that most of us try in vain to keep secrets that will never stay hidden.

Outside of the show, original “Desperate Housewives” member Nicollette Sheridan is suing the show’s creator Marc Cherry and ABC for wrongful termination and hostile workplace after he hit her on the head and fired her.
A judge in Nicollette Sheridan’s lawsuit denied a motion to dismiss the case against ABC and the creator of “Desperate Housewives.”
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White denied the motion to dismiss the case Wednesday morning and also urged both sides to settle.
The first lawsuit ended last month in a mistrial after the jury deadlocked 8-4 in favor of Sheridan.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
