The seventh season finale of Desperate Housewives gave the ladies of Wisteria Lane a reason to bond this fall:
A dead body, courtesy of Carlos coming to Gaby's rescue, hidden in a trunk. How will this development affect season eight?
"The question now will be what will they do with this body?" producer Bob Daily said to TV Guide. "It will take a toll on them next season. That will prove an interesting wrinkle."
So will what appears to be the end of the one stable marriage in town: that of Tom and Lynette.
They "will not be divorcing," Daily says. "But when we come back next year, they will be going through a separation. Tom will be living elsewhere for a while. And I do think one or both at some point will dip their toes into the world of mid-life dating. But we will also look for them to find ways to fall in love again."
But not before a couple women, one of whom we know well, makes things tempting for Tom.
Desperate Housewives returns in September and will continue to air on Sunday nights.
