The show debut with Susan depressed over Carl's affair. And now the show ends with Susan yet again depressed. This time over the death of Mike? Cherry embodies what is wrong with television and society as a whole. Mobid and depressing. You cant even get lost in a show without feeling more depressed. We grew to love Mike. Is it a problem to have somewhat a pleasant ending? I'm glad he didnt create classic shows like "I Love Lucy." He probably would have killed Ricky off in the 3rd season to boost ratings.
This was a good episode, I was surprised that I was crying for a fictional character though. Anyway, Tamara, it makes some sense to me that Mike was talking about love before he died--he was expecting something to happen, he was paranoid and carrying a gun around because he knew that loan shark wouldn't let this go. Normally, no, people don't get to declare their love like that just before getting killed. However because he had that feeling, he did. And that's the only reason it was believable for me.
The whole Mike death situation was not random.
Sure, it's just Bree whose currently in trouble, but the whole house of cards is gonna come down somehow, and Susan and the others will all end up in peril. Soooo, I bet that that writers intend to have Ben feel super guilty about what happened to Mike, and have him decide to take the fall for the women, due to his feeling that he owes it to Susan. He'll do the noble thing and take the fall.
Ben's a minor character, and definitely expendable. Just you wait. I bet I'm right !!!
stupid frekin marc cherry!!sucks!!they should nt hav killed mike,they should hav to killed orson or dat old lady karen!!!stupid marc cherry
I don't understand why everyone is praising this episode. yes done well but they never should have killed off mike. too upsetting. stupid writers. honestly, give us some happiness.
Such a sad sad episode, I could see something bad happening to Mike after beating the crap out of that thug, low and behold it did. One of the best husbands on Wisteria Lane had to be killed off.
And like others have said, Bree fell right into the oldest trick int the book with the police. Such a witty/sly woman, but she slipped up this time.
Will she get out of this one. Thinking with Bree anything is possible. Guess we will have to watch and see. If she doesn't, will she go down alone? Or will others stand behind her?
However this was a tear jerker for me......as I am sure it was for others!!!!!!! R.I.P. Mike you will be missed on the last episodes.
Incredible episode, great acting on everyone's part, just one of the best TV shows out there. WHY the Hell does it have to end? I have watched this since the opening pilot. We have structured our Sunday evenings to watch DH for 8 years now. I'm a guy and I feel like I know all the girls and I liked all the men including the gay men.
P.s. Forgot to mention! - The walls are closing in on the murder! That detective really seems to hate Bree! and now they have her fingerprints that match! I wonder what's going to happen! (Way to go Orson- not!)
Cry, Cry,Cry again!! I cried last week when Mike died and then last night - omg!- when Susan made the eulogy & M.J. put that baseball glove on top of the coffin- cried buckets again. Susan was just in total numbness about the taking care of the car; cancelling appt.s ect... They ALL did such an AMAZING job!! I hope that Tom and Lynetta get back together. I think that Gabby & Carlos will end up moving out of Wisteria because he wants to become a counsellor so they won't be able to afford there. I'm still mad that they killed Mike off :/ and I DON'T want the show to end :( :(
PART 2 ;) so no one else seemed really soo sad. MJ and Julie looked like they didnt care and no one else was really crying. I mean yeah everyone is different, but that no one really lost it - I have never seen that at a funeral before.. normally there is SO much drama on these show.. so that was a little bit weird.
I really like this season!
What i have to say at the end: When i watched the scene with Bree and Rex i wanted to scream at him: Seriously??? are u an idiot or what? poor bree...she should have left him..
I really liked this ep.
I always thought Jane is an awesome woman, but sorry Jane, now i want Tom and Lynette back. I feel sorry for her, but I have to be on Lynettes site.. Jane starts to annoye me now
Hm i have to say, i always liked Mike, but now after seeing all those awesome memories from everyone i wish they would have done that more often during the show. There was no MJ + Mike scene for ages. Or with the other people from Wisteria Lane.. Thats a little bit shit, cause now i realized what an awesome character he was. Wish i would have known and seen that before.
The way he died was little bit over the top - talking about Love before he dies. Well most of the times that doesnt happens in real life - but good for susan so ill say its alright ;)
What i have to say tho: I know everyone is suffering different when someone dies.. some people cant cry or do it at home or whatever, but that no one was really losing it? not even susan .. i mean ok she had her 2 moments, but no on
great episode but still angry for Mike's death
I haven't watched DH in a long time but I felt inclined to watch this episode. When I watched this show, I always liked Mike's character and this was a very difficult episode to watch. It was done very well and the tribute that was given gave justice to the character. Well done! And Teri Hatcher was just amazing.
Possibly one of the best episodes of the entire show, up there with the excellent season 3 hostage at the supermarket. Cried buckets throughout, probably more than in any other episode of any other show (and that includes Grey's Anatomy). Mike was definitely my favourite husband and bordered on favourite character and I'm gutted that they chose to kill him off when they spent 8 seasons and 13 show years getting them together in the first place, and now they don't get their happy ending. Gonna have to go back and watch the pilot now, just for old times sake!
Don't be surprised if James Denton wins a Best Supporting Actor Emmy for his work on this show. If anybody deserves one, he does.
In fact,why don't you readers and fans start an online campaign right now
to get James Denton nominated for that Emmy?
Who's with me on this?
Oh god this was just too much for me. My grandgrandma is kinda dying (can you kind of die???) and I just cried a waterfall.
I haven´t seen DH for a long time, like 3 o more season, but i´ve kept in touch of whats been going on... saw here that mike was killed off and couldn´t help but feel sad... so i saw this epi and started droping tears from the start! Really good episode! Cried a river towards the end and loved the flashbacks and compromises the DH´s made as a result of the meaning of mike´s death and most important, his life. Beautiful episode for the beautiful character was mike!
I am still angry the season is ending a year early. I will miss this show dearly.
This episode was very well done. It was a tear-jerker. Mike goes down in history as the best husband of all time. It would have been better for fans to have Susan and Mike walk into the sunset holding hands. This sucks.
I did love the episode, it was a good tribute to Mike's character although I thought that it was quite dry. Susan showed no emotion in the episode before the funeral started, I mean her husband has just died and she has no problem whatsoever in picking out his coffin and so on. I think of the path chosen in which to deal with grief over Mike's death was a bad one. The episode was moving, I do admit that I cried all through it but still, they could've done much more of it. Also Carlos saying his best friend had just died and him being so okay with it?
I get that Bree is all smiles and not showing emotion but that was not played out well in relation to the fact that her friend had just passed away. Julie and Gabby were also in no way grieving over Mike's unfortunate death.
Mike was my favorite husband on Wisteria Lane along with Tom. I am very sad to see Mike go.
I also hate the fact that Lynette and Tom are apart and Jane is the picture. Desperate housewives could end with a happ
Predictable...yes. But having been a fan of this show since its first episode, it just amazes me how it can go from completely off the wall funny, to "wow, I just lost a good friend? And I'm not sure what to say to his wife at the funeral?" A standing ovation well deserved to the writers and cast of this episode. If I had to criticize anything? I wanted more of a close up of Vanessa Williams singing Amazing Grace, but...understand we technically weren't supposed to know, because Renee' wouldn't have sung, she's not a singer on that show. But? Vanessa? You play that character perfectly and your singing, just beautiful. Tom and Lynette's first date scene? C'mon wardrobe? Those were two of the WORST wigs I've ever seen in my life, that scene, really made the episode cheap, dialogue sucked...the whole thing should have been cut. Not the whole Tom / Lynette thing, just that scene. Why even have it? Just show the one of pregnant with twins Lynette and Tom at the new house? That was great. Te
I am very upset with cg hannel nine they did not ait dh tonight tried to say technical difficulties.
I completely agree DH. Sure I love Mike, but his death could have been so much better if it were a surprise!
But this was a great episode, one of the best this season in my opinion. I'm glad Gaby finally began to be a little be less selfish and Lynette decided to fight for Tom! She's my favourite character so I hope she has a happy ending.
I'm just trying to think how it will end...All of them in prison? One taking the fall? I just can't seem to fathom one ending I like or atleast can not be really pissed off about... but anyways I hope if ends well!
Undoubtedly one of the best written episodes of the entire series. This show is back in must-see form and is going out in as much style as it came in with.
It was so sad, especially the end. With only a few episodes left till the finish, I wonder if they're going to be able to make the perfect series finale?
The whole Mike death thing would of been so much better if no one knew it about it before hand.. we all saw it coming, so there was really no element of surprise when he was shot.
