Harriet Sansom Harris to Appear Again on Desperate Housewives

at . Comments

It's already been established that Mark Moses will reprise the role of Paul next season on Desperate Housewives.

But, wait, many long-time fans are wondering: didn't he get sent away for murder? How can he rent out Susan and Mike's home on Wisteria Lane, as the storyline calls for? Don't worry, there's a logical answer:

The woman Paul was convicted of killing is actually alive!

Sources tell TV Guide Magazine that Harriet Sansom Harris will return briefly in the role of Felicia Tilman, as she'll be used to "clarify how Paul got out of jail." Felicia faked her own death in order to set Paul up years ago, but her scheme will be exposed this fall.

What else can we expect from Paul's return? Moses didn't reveal much, but did tease us with the following:

"It's going to be a great run and very interesting to see which of the housewives still think Paul's guilty and which won't. And just why is he coming back to Wisteria Lane?"

Desperate Housewives Quotes

Take it from the reigning odd duck on the lane, nobody cares about that silly stuff.

Mrs. McCluskey

So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.
