    Hi ALL,

    I started this thread as the other thread implies spoilers only up to a certain date while this thread should allow for spoilers for the whole season.

    As I have said before in other posts, the ONLY reason I'm still watching is that this is the final season and I want to see how they are going to end it.

    That being said the only thing I wanted to mention is that it seems that the whole season is just dragging along. I think there are 2 or 3 more episodes BEFORE the 2 hour series finale. It just feels like there are more episodes than in previous seasons. And some of the events are taking a long time to happen. For example, in the last episode (3/25) it seemed certain that Bree was going to be arrested but that actually did not happen in that episode! The teaser for the upcoming episode does show her being arrested but some events are taking forever to happen.

    I for one will be glad when its over and I don't have to bother with it any more. Of course I could just stop watching it now but I CAN'T!!!

    Yeah, this has been the sentiment in the other thread. Most of us are just watching to see how it ends. If there were going to be another season or more I'd quit watching. The plot lines are beyond ridiculous including the main season story line where Gabby's tormentor was murdered. It was simple self defense and with that many witnesses there's no way, despite Carlos' record he could have ever been convicted. The whole thing is dumb.

    OK me too. Just starting to watch again to see how it wraps up. I was kind of watching the "last week" wrap ups when I could.

    I'm actually watching now through the rest of the season and the first question I have is...

    when the hell did Mike die and what killed him?

    Mike got killed a few weeks ago by a Bookie. Rene's boyfriend borrowed money from him, and the guy came to her house looking to get more out of her. Mike got involved, coming to her defense, and the guy threatened him that he better watch out. Of course, Mike wasn't scared.

    Cut to an episode or 2 later and he and Susan were at the police station asking for protection because Mike told her about it so she was scared. The police said they couldn't get involved until something happened. Later, Susan and Mike were sitting on their front porch chatting. Susan got up to go inside (I think she's the one who got up), and then a car pulled up. The guy in the passenger seat yelled, "Hey Mike!" and pulled a gun. Mike stood up and pushed Susan into the house, and the guy fired, hitting him in the chest and killing him.

    Does Susan have some legal grounds to sue the police department? They asked for help and were denied. Maybe this will be the catalyst to get them to back off Bree?

    Last night was just as ridiculous as the rest of the season. The fact that the women are apparently so skillful at hiding Alejandro's death from a top-notch attorney, the fact that he (a) didn't sic that private detective on Bree herself and (b) was STILL defending her without knowing the full story, Tom and Lynette almost getting back together until something stupid stands in the way...

    I've never been a fan of how they've treated the Tom and Lynette pair, and I hated the divorce story line; I've always felt like the writers have been comparatively rougher on them...there seems to be one of those in every series (Mark Greene on ER, for example). Just, ugh.

    I was hoping for an exciting, unexpected series finale, but it seems like we are going to get Bree's trial, Julie's baby, Renee's wedding, Tom & Lynette's marriage... Good for a season finale, but pretty lame for a series finale. Maybe a last-minute earthquake will swallow the whole Lane.

    Don't forget an end to the McCluskey story line. I'm thinking it won't be a happy ending.

    Lots of previous stars (alive and dead) coming back - so I think the stuff there will be more going than just the above.

    Finally get the Finale this week (it sucks they put it on opposite of the Survivor finale, but I guess it doesn't really matter in the land of DVRs). The season has sucked more than any season previously, and maybe as bad as any other show I used to like. But I'm curious as most of us who've stuck with it to see how it all shakes out. I really never thought, in the end we were supposed to HATE these people, but really, I can't think of a character on the show that I really like and root for (of the major characters, not the supporting cast). I feel sorry for Bree, but never liked her. Lynette made the bed she's in and Tom was dumb enough to put up with her all these years. Gabby and Carlos are so self centers (and their kids are the same). Susan has become so ditzy that's she's had to care about. I used to like Mike, but he's dead. Renee, I never liked, she's Gabby with an even worse attitude. None of them, to me, the way they eventually got written have any redeeming qualities anymore.

    So what are the SWAG predictions. Mike Cherry has said he had the very last part planned from the beginning. These are my guesses - nothing I have read anywhere.

    1) Mary Alice puts down the gun after flashing forward the entire series and says I can't do that to my friends.
    2) Karen arrives in heaven and sees all her old friends including Mary Alice
    3) All the housewives become single again and move away to new Wisteria Lanes (As it should be)
    4) They all go to Jail AKA Seinfeld for being idiots - I wished.
    5) Mary Alice who has been doing the voice over is in reality a screen writer and its just a novel.

    I think 1 and 5 are certainly possibilities. I think think it's 2, because I don't think Karen was on the show early on and if he's had the last scene planned, that couldn't be it. Three? I've seen no indication that Gabby and Carlos are splitting despite their fighting over his job. Of course you consider "single" Carlos going to jail, then, yeah, could be. I'd love to see 4, because..ummmm...they ARE idiots for covering up a crime that really wasn't a crime.

    I've always kind of thought that Mary Alice really isn't dead. So I'll lean toward some sort of resolution where much of what we've seen is just M.A. pondering one what might happen if she killed herself.

    The actress who plays Karen also has cancer in real life. I don't think Marc Cherry could have planned on her even being there in the end.

    6) Paul Young wakes up in his bed, goes to the bathroom and finds Mary Alice in the shower.

    Or...

    Paul Young wakes up in bed and Sue Ellen Mishke is there, with no bra on, and he suddenly gets a hankering for an O'Henry bar :D

    Glad it's over.

    We stuck with it since the beginning, but glad it's over.

    Should be interesting seeing how they end it all.
