As we all know, no one is ever truly safe in Fairview. The residents may as well be playing Russian roulette. Now, word on Wisteria Lane is that a MAJOR character is going to be killed off in March.
Murders, suicides, natural disasters, accidents, and even death by a candlestick... we've seen it all. (And sometimes even repeatedly. Seriously, how many people have been run over? I've lost count.)
With the show on hiatus until February 12, let's discuss who the unfortunate corpse might be. I've listed a few candidates, along with odds of their last breath being taken this spring, below...
Mrs. McCluskey: She's been on the Lane since the beginning and knows a little too much for her own good. Whether it’s because of an illness or she’s simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, her death would equally affect each of the original cast members tremendously.
Carlos: His death would wrap up the Alejandro murder storyline. We’ve hardly seen Carlos this season due to his immense guilt over what happened just last summer. Could he be slipping further away and drowning in alcohol to the extent that he’d take his own life? If so, it’d be a shame but also nothing new to Wisteria Lane.
Mike: I’d hate to see Mike go, but he could have possibly crossed the line with that MOB-like man when trying to help out Ben. Seriously, what was he thinking? Will Mike pay the price when Ben can’t pay off his debt? For the sake of Susan and MJ, I hope not!
Renee: Like Mike, Renee has Ben to thank for her spot on this list. The mafia dude knows about her millions from her divorce and isn’t afraid to get her involved. Aside from this factor, Renee has never had much of a storyline since she came onboard. She’d be missed, but for the sake of storytelling, not so much.
Tom: Could Lynette handle even more distress? It would be a tragedy if something happened to Tom, but Lynette is a fighter. They’ve been separated all season long, and we’ve seen Lynette at her worst and best. If Tom was the chosen one, it’d be terribly sad; however, it’d be quite a story for Lynette.
One of the Core Four (Bree, Gaby, Lynette or Susan): As much as I'd love an explosive shocker, I just don't think it will be one of the original Wisteria women to bite the bullet. It'd be far too cruel, and I want to believe that they will all be there as we bid farewell to Fairview in May. That’s just the way it has to be.
Your turn, TV Fanatics: Who do you think won't make it to the finale?
