Gale Harold's Return to 'Desperate Housewives" Still Up in the Air
According to the latest reports, Gale Harold's ("Queer as Folk," "Vanished") return to "Desperate Housewives" following his October 14 motorcycle accident remains up in the air and his character will remain out of sight, for the time being.
Earlier this week, when the show came back from its Christmas hiatus, the viewers could hear Harold's voice during a phone call with his girlfriend Susan (Teri Hatcher) which explained his character Jackson's absence (he was visiting a friend out of town).
Although the actor, who suffered some serious injuries in the accident, is recovering well, it will take him a little more time to come back to Wisteria Lane. According to his spokesperson, rumors that he would not come back or come back next year are not true.
Although I personally love Gale Harold, I am somewhat indifferent about his "Desperate" character, who seems to have gone through minor changes since his original short appearance in the final seconds of last May's season-ending cliffhanger.
According to spoilers, Jackson (Harold) will ask Susan to join him and leave Wisteria Lane for good. Since the show is expected to run for at least 4 more seasons with Hatcher on board, Susan will obviously have little desire to abandon her best friends.
