Whoa... I was beginning to get bored with Desperate Housewives but tonight's C4 broadcast of season three finale was, quite frankly, awesome. What a great set-up for the season four. Here are some thoughts concerning the season as a whole:
Personally I have always thought Susan Myers was the weakest character, and this season didn't prove me wrong. She did take her first step to finally gain control of her life by finally deciding for herself her wedding date, but she needs to prove herself more and stop being a Rachel. Gabrielle's a close second, and I hope, with that shrewd 'it's all about me' personality, perhaps she is finally getting what she deserved. I am indifferent to Lynette and couldn't care less on what will happen to her the next season.
I was glad to see Marcia Cross's returning as Bree for the finale, even if it was only for a couple of minutes of screen time. Her return was pretty much essential as the plot that was revealed in tonight's episode sets up what could be the first half of season four's storyline. Because I was online while watching the episode on the telly, there were plenty of 'WTF' on my Skype messages with Jenni, and 90% of it concerns Bree's scenes. As for Edie... well take a look at the picture above. Nothing moved, not even her feet. She's done. Move on folks.
I would like to congratulate David Grossman for directing this episode and to Marc Cherry, the series creator. Can't wait for season four.
