Just six months after being seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, actor Gale Harold is now fully recovered, looking good and according to Ausiello Files, ready to return to ABC's Desperate Housewives.
Gale Harold will return to the show as Susan's ex, Jackson, on May 3rd. According to creator Marc Cherry, "Quite frankly, I think he looks even better [than before the crash]." When Jackson returns he comes with a "very important question for Susan -- one that she's kind of stunned by."
While Harold's accident far from ruined the show, it definitely made Cherry and company change plans. "We were planning to end his storyline [around midseason]. But because of the accident, we get to bring him back for the end of the season, which will be a nice kind of full circle journey for Susan in season 5."
As for whether Harold will be in season six of Desperate Housewives, Cherry hints that the once commitment-phobic actor might be willing to come back. He says, "I think Gale may have changed his priorities [since the accident]. But those decisions won't be made until May."
