With eight seasons of murder, love, black comedy and enough drama off-screen for a mini-series of its own Desperate Housewives finally came to an end last night with the season finale giving each of its stars a happily ever after.
Viewers were kept glued to their seats as the fate of Bree Van de Kamp played by Marcia Cross hung in the balance. Charged with murder and facing prison she was eventually saved by Karen McClusky the bitter but lovable old maid who confessed to the murder herself to save Bree.
In a poignant moment the battle axe then dies in her sleep after saving the day and following her battle with cancer.
Bree’s shock guardian angel wasn’t the only piece of drama in Sunday night’s emotional episode as Susan’s daughter Julie gave birth to her child with Lynette’s son Porter while Renee Perry, played by Vanessa Williams gets swept off her feet by her hunky Australian boyfriend.
Mrs McClusky’s kind act let Bree off the hook for the crime Carlos, husband of Gabrielle played by Eva Longoria had accidentally committed and let the ladies of Wisteria Lane move on to their fairytale ending.
Having been willing to take the fall for her friend Bree finds love with her caring lawyer and moves to the South to become a politician. With their name in the clear Carlos and Gabrielle were able to move on with thier lives and made a fortune on their shopping website business.
Viewers were also given a sneak peak at what Felicity Hoffman’s character Lynette Scavo gets up to and sees her reuniting with husband Tom and moving to New York. The feisty business woman then becomes a CEO and is seen playing happily with her grandchildren.
The only desperate housewife we don’t see the future for is Teri Hatcher’s Susan Delfino who is seen packing up her home and waving goodbye to the famous street.
As she hands over the keys to the new owner, the brunette lets them in on a secret that fans have known for a while, "this street is a lot of things, boring is not one of them.”
