Desperate Housewives: Remember (finale)
Once again, let's quickly go over each family's main points from tonight:
The Young family: Zach's now at least a multi-millionaire, and Paul's looking at doing serious time for a murder that didn't happen. Doesn't Zach seem like he'd make a perfect evil rich overlord? I sense Paul will make it out of prison and come looking for his son, but then again, why would any of this really connect back with Wisteria Lane anyway? I guess it's one way of keeping Mary Alice connected in some way.
The Solis family: Oh, Carlos will be back, we all know that. Hey, I'm not saying what he did was right, but Gaby can't keep hating him for basically doing what she told him to. Or can she?
The Scavo family: I was sure hating Lynette for having made such important decisions about the kids without consulting Tom at all or even learning more about the situation. She really deserves one of these knee-jerk decisions to really, really bite her in the ass next season. Having Tom's one-time fling and "new" daughter nearby could provide some mild entertainment for next season, but I could see it getting old pretty quick. Will the mom skip town and leave the Scavos with her daughter to care for? Will she be another Wisteria Lane victim, causing the same thing to happen?
The Mayer family: I'll group Mike in with this story, too. So, Mike knows Orson from somewhere, likely from prison. Wait a minute ... Susan just happens to meet Orson in a movie theater and Mike knows him from somewhere. Meanwhile, Bree sees the mysterious Orson in the psych hospital, who then later comes to her house for a date. Am I going crazy, or was this a crossover with Lost?
The Van De Kamp family: I was actually a little surprised that Bree's son didn't come up in this episode. I do have to wonder, now that she basically saved her daughter's life, if she'll be taken more seriously by her. Likely not, as this is Bree's child we're talking about.
The Applewhite family: A very cool twist that I didn't see coming. It all makes sense now, looking back at past episodes. The only thing that really seemed very far fetched was the SWAT team being deployed to the area from a simple 911 call, and without any sort of attempt at communicating with the shooter. That really felt like a cop out to me.
The flashbacks were definitely a treat and were well used to show how each family has developed in all these years. Seeing Rex, Bree and the interaction at the drugstore was all too creepy. One interesting thing of note was how absent Edie was from the episode. Didn't that seem odd?
