What's Next For ABC's "Desperate Housewives"? Spoilers Galore!
In an exclusive interview with MediaVillage, the creator of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" Marc Cherry reveals some big twists coming up this spring on television's most wicked cul-de-sac. Also, how does Bree's storyline wrap up?
As you may know already, big changes are in store for the ladies on Wisteria Lane this March following the conclusion of Bree Van De Kamp's storyline in episode #15 on February 18.
Nicolette Sheridan will become front and center of the show getting a lot more screen time as her character Edie develops a romantic relationship with Carlos.
In the first new episode in March, she will be visited by her former husband and her 9-year-old son whom the writers promised to introduce on many earlier occasions. It seems, however, the moment has finally arrived.
In his interview, Marc Cherry revealed there will be two weddings on Wisteria Lane before the season ends. One big splashy wedding and then another one, very quick, shot-gun wedding.
New York Post was quick to suggest it may very well be Susan and Ian who will be walking down the aisle.
Do remember, however, that spoiler sources have indicated Ian will find the ring Mike intended to give Susan and break up with her on February 18.
On the other hand, Gabrielle will meet a distinguished gentleman 15 years older than her in the first March episode. Could she be the one tying the knot in May? Or will it be her ex Carlos and Edie?
As for the quickie... Could it be a pregnant Danielle and her lover Austin? Whatever the case, March Cherry promises there will be a disaster in the love triangle of Julie, Austin and Danielle.
Also, following all start-up troubles and early success in their new restaurant business, Tom's back will give out and Lynette will be forced to run the pizzeria all by herself.
Finally, Marc Cherry explained that although it would be impossible to top the amazing supermarket hostage standoff episode from November, he does have several "out-of-the-box" ideas for the future, including a special episode for this spring told from a strictly male point of view.
Cherry therefore confirmed Steven Culp will be returning as Rex Van De Kamp to narrate the episode from "the other side".
Now, where does all of that leave Bree (Marcia Cross) who will make an appearance in only two more episodes before she leaves town on February 18?
Marcia Cross who was put on bed rest in early January will appear in two all-new episodes scheduled for February as the crew was able to shoot several scenes with the actress lying in bed at her home.
On-screen, Bree falls of a ladder in the February 11 episode and remains confined to bed. Her son Andrew blames his stepfather Orson for her accident, a moment that triggers Andrew's return to his evil roots.
Rumor has it someone attempts a suicide jumping of a roof of Fairview's Sacred Hearts Hospital and spoiler sources indicate it may well be Orson himself desperate to end it all. Or was it just an accident?
Orson will survive the fall and subsequently reveal to a psychiatrist the truth about his family's sinister past - his abusive father's suicide, his mother blaming him for the suicide and as a result, his stay at a mental institution as a teenager.
Speaking of Gloria, Orson's evil mother may need some new living arrangements come spring after her brain hemorrhage leaves her paralyzed and unable to communicate.
Meanwhile, Alma is also punished for plotting against Orson - her miscarriage may leave her unable to bear children.
Please take into account that spoilers regarding Bree's storyline are based upon early scripts, they have not been confirmed by Marc Cherry, ABC or Touchstone Studios and should therefore be treated as rumors.
