Desperate Housewives > Desperate Housewives Review: A Shocking Death > Comments Page 2
Tom is such a tool, he is inconsiderate and has always acted like a baby. Lynette isn't manipulative so much as she stands up for herself. The fact that Jane pounced on Lynette's discarded husband shows how desperate some women in that age group are to have a man in their life. Jane doesn't need a man, she is a doctor. If she wants a boyfriend, why is it so hard for her to find one who isn't still married?
It was so predictable that something with Mike would be happening when he and Susan were sitting on the porch talking about (guess what?) LOVE (isn't that so overdone, too?). This episode was the most mediocre one I've seen on DH so far. All in all this season has been quite a flop so far. The writers have serious problems with the side stories around the main plot. I miss stories like when Angie called Bree to hide Karl, so they wouldn't get caught by Orson. Or when Susan and Gaby set up Carlos and Mike, so they would admit Carlos borrowed money to Mike OR when Bree secretly helped Gaby to bake the pine apple upside-down cake. Those were TV-milestones imo. WRITERS, BRING BACK THESE KIND OF STORIES. IT'S THE LAST SEASON FOR GOD'S SAKE.
Come on people - No one deserves that. Not Gaby, Susan, Ben or anyone.
This is a tv show. Yes Susan had bad times.. But you hasnt in Wisteria Lane? Thats not a reason. And btw if that happens in real life - its never fair either!
Gaby.. hmm i wasnt happy, but on the other hand i do understand her a little bit. Carlos can work in a different job but he shouldn't give there private money away. I think its pretty bad tho. Gaby doesnt care if he is happy - thats pretty bad for a wife!
I can't believe they killed Mike off, it was a mistake in my opinion. Susan deserved to end off better than being alone. If they wanted to kill someone, it should have been Carlos. It's great to want to give back, but it shouldn't be at the expense of giving up your home, your life, etc.
I'm also upset that Renee hasn't been given more air time and better story lines, she's such a great asset and really added to the show.
Marc really has made some big mistakes, but I've never cared much for him he always gave off an arrogant tone.
i'd never forgive writers for killing off Mike.. no way.. now I really want that nothing had never happend from the beginning of DH so Mary Alice never suicided herself!!!
I think its sooooo sad it was mike I really liked him. And at first I thought it would ruin the last couple episodes for Susan but now that I think about it I think Susan is a lot stronger than people give her credit for and the writers will find a way for the show to end as good as it could, if they tried to end it with Susan a mess, and the others in jail I think tbat the fans would all be soo angry. But I guess the show starteed with a tragedy it could end that way too.
Whaaaaat??? I said outloud when Mike was shot! And was he ever SHOT! I feel angry! This better be a dream that Susan wakes up from, being worried about Mike. He's too good of a guy to be killed off so I'm hoping it's just a dream.
I think that "dating" during Lynette and Tom's separation is completely wrong and I wish they would get back together. It would be nice if they were both willing to own up to their own part of the problems in the marriage, by the help of a counselor opening their eyes and they would want to commit to work on their relationship. And I'm glad Lynette ended up helping Jane, although I can understand her hesitation (ha ha ha) but if she hadn't, that would have been too much, too wrong!
Great episode! Kept you wondering!
am I the only one who feels sorry for Gaby.
Did we all forget what she has been through. Yes, she is need and selfcentred, but that's only a part of Gaby.
Remember when she waited for Carlos while he was in prison.
Remember how she was stuck with Xao Mai, when Carlos took off.
Remember how she took care of her blind husband and two children for five years.
She has had some difficult times and all Carlos cares about is doing something good. Besides, he's been through this before. When he got his sight back, he wanted to do volunteer work, he has quit his job many times before all because he wanted it. And selling your house, making your children change schools is just wrong. I'm not saying he has to keep ripping people off, but he could be nicer to the woman who stuck by him through hell...
Oh and Mike, you'll be missed. I'm curious where they're going with this. I want a pretty damn good reason for killing him off with only six episodes left!
Mike was my fave husband, I liked him & susan, he was one of my fave characters. Mike shouldntve died to pay for what Ben did.I mean yes Mike couldve let the loan shark do whatever to ben & renee but he was protecting thier lives not doing business with the guy like Ben was. I hope & think whatll happen is the cops find alejandros body & Ben takes the fall to protect the women & carlos to make up for what he did to mike & renee. Mike was soo good looking. Now Susans gonna depressed the rest of the series/season.

I still cant believe that nearly everyone knew who is goig to die.. sooo stupid and shit. I wasnt suprised anymore and yes it was sad, but not too sad cause i knew it already. And i mean in the end it was stupid. He got his money.. always this problems with those guys.. thats why i hated lets say the sopranos ;)
i hated gaby... come on we had that story already SO often. She loves money he doesnt. They fight and then again and again... Gaby what do u want your husband or money? i thought she at least changed a bit
i really hope that julie still wants to give the baby away, otherwise it would be so easy
and yes i feel sorry for susan and Mj , BUT i havent seen MJ for ages.. so i cant get those big emotiones
I hate this episode. Why do they always have to kill one of the main characters ?
IF they had not spoiled it last week, this would have been the surprise death for the books! So, my shock quickly became tears seeing Mike lying in Susans arms at the closing shot. Yes, I admit: I cried.
Seeing the show flash back to all the moments he shared with Susan, including that first encounter made me realize just how much his character went through. I was definitely sad to see him go. I wouldn't have cared if it were Ben or Orson.
Now for the episode overall, it's finally picking up! The writing seems a bit better: the characters more like their origins...except Bree. My god Marcia Cross...what happened!? Is she tired of playing the Bree we all grew to love so much and accept? Because this new Bree...just seems bland. No life at all.
And why does Renee have little to no story? I mean, come on...she's been on the show for two straight seasons. It's VANESSA WILLIAMS! Enough said!
I for one was totally oblivious to the spoiler and I was shocked to realise itd be Mike dying. For a second I really hoped Jane would choke on her cheese puffs. Shame Lynette realised what was happening (and the bitch didn't even say thanks). I am shocked. I cried. Mike was probably the one character I wouldn't see die (well, him and Tom) apart from the 4 women. It just sucks. It's a crap storyline, especially thinking that the show will end anyway in 5 episodes. So why kill him now? Why put this on Susan and MJ and Julie right at the end? It makes no sense. And I think Susan had been through enough with her first husband and the economic issues last season and all.. I was really hoping to see her live a normal happy life with her husband and kids. If it wasn't this close to ending anyway, I'd stop watching right now. Not that it makes a difference, I know. Very disappointing.
@memaw - I was talking about the current trial with Nicollette Sheridan, who is suing Marc Cherry and studio for wrongful termination stemming from the elimination of her character, Edie Britt. Last week, an executive producer spilled the beans and revealed the major spoiler we had all been waiting for: Mike was going to be killed off. To my understanding, other actresses were supposed to testify as well. If only we could see the actual case! Now that would be some real drama.
@leanne - I definitely agree on your comment about Bree. She acted peculiarly different than usual.
was it me or brees acting was very bland ? i know she can act but todays ep she didnt seem good at all ( like a rookie not a actor has been in tv for 8 seasons ! ) it was sad to see mike go, theres the happy ending for susan in the shows finale
Why was it Mike that they had to let go???? I thought it was going to be Karen or Orson! Killing Mike off was just cruel! :(
Lynette may have been manipulative during their marriage, but what Tom did was just inconsiderate! And for Jane to rub it in, too annoying!
That Orson sent the envelope to the police (as well as the notes to Bree)
struck a familiar chord.
It was just the sort of thing I would see on "TWIN PEAKS",another hit show
featuring Kyle McClachlan ON THIS VERY SAME NETWORK.
Anybody besides me remember that one?
Come to think of it,many of the characters of Wisteria Lane would have fit right in at Twin Peaks.
I'll take a guess and say next week will have ALL the housewives in the interrogation room being questioned about the murder,starting with Bree.
Susan,having just lost her husband, will freak out and GIVE EVERYBODY UP.
But that's just me guessing. We'll see what REALLY happens next week.
Mike had a bit autodestructive side but he and Susan were the best couple of the show, and they went such a long Way and deserved a "wisteri lane happy ending"!!!
Hopefully we will comeback on the Eddie story, when she said that Susan never was without man!
Either way this is so stupid, with his appearing the whole story started and now they cut our heart out!
The flashback montage was good. Lynnete deliberately waited before helping Jane.
Not liking Tom or Lynette OR Jane for that matter: weak character vs. controlling character vs. spiteful character. None of them resonate. (Yes, for those who would argue that Tom finally has a spine: he is *still* a bit afraid of Lynette - the character is written that way)
I've always enjoyed the character of Mike as played by James Denton, but felt that the character was woefully under-utilized. I suppose that's to be expected, as the title is "Desperate Housewives" and not "Desperate People on Wisteria Lane".
I like Tom, and he had some legitimate grievances against lynette in their marriage. But so did she when it came to Tom; he always leaves the dirty work to somebody else. To ask another women to move in with him before even filing for divorce or talking to lynette about it was cowardly.
What's the real life drama of the cast???
Nooo! Why Mike? He was a good guy and cares so much about everyone on the lane. Not what I wanted to see. :(
Yes, we always knew Gaby was self centered and selfish - duh - big surprise there. Carlos was never really happy making money - his soul is screaming to do good for people and feel good and he doesn't feel good doing those 'corporate things'. I understand his dilemna.
Bree - helping karen hmm - that is odd.
Yes, Lynette was hesitating saving Jane - (I have to admit I would too LOL) - then in a split second she thought "you know maybe I better save her". Jane on the other hand is smug about "taking" Tom ... and I think Tom was avoiding telling Lynette he had moved on.. (sorta think Tom is still kinda afraid of Lynette).
Sorry to see the show ending .. all good things come to an end.. right?
