'Desperate Housewives' - 'We All Deserve to Die' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E19) "Sometimes ... we let it in." - Mary Alice about "Evil"

After months without mentioning the strangler storyline, 'Desperate Housewives' finally let "Evil" back in and treated us not only with hints and, sadly, a new killing, but also with the identity of the culprit!!!

We first saw the person in the second episode of the season. My immediate instinct was that the strangled was a young man with whom Julie may have had a complicated "thing" with and that I didn't think it was Julie's ex (played by Steven Weber). In comments TV Squad readers left to my review of that episode, most fingers were pointed at Danny, McCluskey, Ana, Angie, Roy, and Katherine. Of course, as more episodes aired, people were added to the list while others were removed. Did you guess right? The answer coming up!

And the strangler is...

Eddie!!! So it is a young man as I first predicted. However, I never pointed the finger at Eddie as I later thought that the strangler could be a woman and maybe that there was a copy cat out there. Even if I didn't pick Eddie as a suspect, the reveal at the end of the episode was not that shocking.

It'll be interesting to see what were Eddie's motives to kill the waitress and to strangle Julie. Was he rejected by both as Irina was? I seem to recall him trying to flirt with both ladies earlier this season but I'm not 100% sure. Did he? Eddie sure quickly went somewhere dark in his head when Irina said no to his suggestions and made fun of him. In seconds, he was off the road, killed her and started burying her. It wouldn't surprise me if Eddie had a troubled childhood during which he was rejected, isolated and even beaten up.

Did you guess Eddie was the strangler? Which hints lead you to believe he was the culprit? Why do you think he killed the waitress and tried to strangle Julie to death? Share your theories in comments below!

Preston - Irina = no more mustache?

Felicity Huffman deserves an Emmy for her work on 'DH.' She once again rocked in that last scene where she tells a silent Preston that she would rather have him hate her for the rest of his life than seeing him make the biggest mistake of his life and that she would wait as long as it would take for him to forgive her. Aww ...

Now that Irina is out of Preston's life, will it mean he'll shave that oh so fake mustache? If not, I hope Lynette makes it her next mission! Maybe she could try to shave it during his sleep?

Bye Bye Lee

I can't believe Lee is gone. He was one of my favorite characters!!! At least the writers gave the couple a good storyline if that was really their last one together. How sad was it to see Bob and Lee struggle with the news that they lost their egg donor and later see Bob explain to Gaby that Lee was gone and that they had broken up. It's understandable that Lee is tired of a process as it's a long and frustrating one, but let's hope that a few days away from Wisteria Lane shows him that he needs to be with Bob and that he shouldn't give up.

As good a friend Gaby is to Bob and Lee, I was disappointed to see that she couldn't tell them the truth about not wanting to give her eggs anymore. Bob and Lee have always been understandable people and would have surely understood that Gaby couldn't do it anymore as she feared she wouldn't be able to let go of her child even if, by the law, it wouldn't have been hers. They would have been disappointed and maybe they wouldn't have spoken to her for a few days, but I'm sure they would have patched things and make up in the end, no?

Patrick, the novelist

How creepy is Patrick? Not only did he find a way to meet Danny without the latter knowing who Patrick really is, but he planted ideas in Danny's head as to how their family storyline should end! Without all the facts, Danny suggested that the man should kill the woman in Patrick's "novel." Only thing is that the man is really Patrick and that Danny suggested that his mother Angie die!

Patrick claimed he decided not to go ahead with this ending because it was "too easy" and that he came up with a different ending. No matter how he gets there, I'm pretty sure Patrick will try to kill Angie for running away with Danny. Even if Patrick is buddy-buddy with Danny right now, it's unlikely that Danny will follow his bio-dad to NYC when he learns both sides of the story. For sure, this won't have a happy ending!

Sam & Bree

Bravo to Orson for showing to Bree that Sam may not be as white as snow and that he may be the one who switched the Cherry for vinegar. We may not know his ultimate plan yet but one thing is certain, Sam wanted Andrew totally out of the picture so he (Sam) could claim Bree's throne. Good thing that Orson and Bree patched things up a few weeks back so she would believe his theory, eh? With May Sweeps just around the corner, Sam will more than likely get more devious to reach his ultimate goal.

Money, money, money

Susan was right when saying to Mike that they vowed to support one another through tough times. Why is Mike so narrow minded about Susan giving him money? After all, he would give her money if she needed it. Mike lying to Susan about his real money problems and having Carlos lend him the money can only end badly. Susan will more than likely find out and will be hurt that Mike wouldn't trust her and tell her the truth. Is the couple heading towards another divorce? I hope not as we've been there and saw that!

This week's episode definitely set the tone for the May Sweeps episode: more info about the strangler and maybe another attempt to murder someone, Patrick's revenge, Sam's ultimate goal, Susan and Mike's money and couple problems. Action packed episodes are definitely coming our way! And it wouldn't be surprising if Lynette gives birth by the season finale.

Def didnt think the strangler was Eddie.

I honestly think Orson is correct...dont think Orson would do that sort of thing. Def think its Sam...he creeps me out.

So sad to see Lee go. I wonder whats in store for Bob now.

LOVED the scene w/ Lynette and Preston. I loved it where she says that she misses him already. God I hope that mustache is gone soon. I picture him in a porno w/ that awful thing!

Unfortunately we will never see Mike as a stipper since Susan sold Carl's business. :( I guess Mike is just being stubborn not taking Susan's money b/c it was from Carl's business...so what!

Very touching to see Gaby walk in w/ the girls and Carlos after realizing she would be sad if she didnt see their faces everyday.

Just to be picky, it's sherry not cherry :)

Can't believe the strangler is Eddie. What a letdown. This feels like a copout especially since he barely has speaking lines.

Bree should've seen that the new kid swapped the sherry immediately. I mean, Andrew had no idea this tasting was occurring, since, he was fired before it even happened. Weak story writing there, Bree's a smart woman. Loving Orson back on her side.

I'm glad they finally found some depth for Susan and Mike. I'm loving the money drama. Also glad to see Gaby and Carlos being together as a family. That was a great scene with the little girls & their loving dad.

Later Lee. Gay stereotypes are so.over.

Ok. funny thing. I wrote in my recap that I thought Lynnette, when made that great speech to Preston about hating her, was really going to say it's okay everything will be okay. Just shave that thing off your face now. Come on. But I loved how they turned it to that. She is amazing. I also happen to think that Eddie is going to take Parker or Preston and Lynnette freaks out and goes into labor.. that's somewhat of what to expect. Where do you think they will take us the next episode???

I love John Barrowman in Torchwood and Doctor Who. It is interesting seeing pay the villian

It's sherry, people, not cherry. Sherry is alcohol, often used in cooking. Cherry is a fruit. I'm just saying...

I didn't foresee the strangler. Not until Irina started talking down to him. In America, the weak strangle YOU!

I think Orsen set up the cherry/vinegar switch. Was it me, or did he actually brag about it? Since it takes a smart man to set Bree up....

Lee, hate seeing you go and hope you come back.. but the tuck and roll line/scene... classic.

The Patrick/Danny storyline.. Don't care actually. But yet I like Angie.. I blame Joey for that.

Mike and Susan and money storyline. I found it to be boring actually. I think Susan should of hooked Mike up to be a stripper. The Plumber who Plumbs..

I like where you are going with the Orson set up. Maybe Orson knows a little more than he's suggesting. Great thinking!!!
I was very surprised Lee left, I enjoyed him and yes, him coming out with the fire extinguisher was classic (as he's holding the top like a woman to not show his boobs.)
Great Idea for putting Mike as a stripper. That would be all too funny if that's where he got his extra money. I don't like where they are taking this storyline either.
Yes, I really too could care less about the Danny/Patrick stuff. You blame Joey for liking Drea De Mattao (spell check?) but, I blame Soprano's.
