Desperate Housewives Top 10 Moments: A Walk Down Wisteria Lane

at . Comments

Well, Desperate Housewives fans, our Sundays are about to be a bit bleak, aren't they? And certainly A LOT less scandal-filled.

Before we take one last stroll down Wisteria Lane in a few hours, however, TV Fanatic is counting down the Top 10 Most Memorable Moments in Desperate Housewives history. Read on, see if you agree, leave a comment with your own and return later tonight to read my review of the series finale...


10. There’s Something About Mary Alice
It was the first ever episode of Desperate Housewives and the series began with a bang – literally – when Mary Alice calmly put a gun to her head and pulled the trigger. All she left behind was a cryptic note explaining her death. As the narrator beyond the grave, she has always been the most mysterious housewife.

9. Gaby and Gardening
For the most part, Gaby has been known as the most high-maintenance and spoiled housewife. In Season 1, we laughed when we saw Gaby, in a long dress and even stilettos, sneak out of a cocktail party to mow the lawn. In an attempt to hide the fact that her teenage gardener was a bit too busy (with her) to do his job, it was then we learned Gaby would go to the extremes to keep her secrets hidden.

8. Susan Naked
Ask any Desperate Housewives fan his/her favorite Susan scene, and I’ll bet they’ll choose one of the funniest scenes ever in Season 1 when Susan locked herself out... naked. Hardly anything ever went right for the clumsy and unlucky Susan. The writers have always made it easy to root for her throughout the years.

7. Bree Abandons Andrew
Newly husband-less, an imposing mother in-law, alcoholism and even a new psychotic boyfriend were all things that Bree could deal with during Season 2. However, a spiteful and disrespectful son? Andrew was just the last straw. This was the moment when we first saw Bree differently as a worn-down, exhausted mother who dropped her son off at a service station and left him there to fend for himself. It was clear that she was far from perfect.

6. Felicia the Fake
There’s crazy, and then there’s cuh-RAZY! Who could honestly forget Felicia Tilman? Toward the end of season 2, it was revealed that she cut off two of her own fingers and framed Paul Young for her murder. Talk about dedication.

5. Edie dies
Edie, who was first seen as Susan’s arch nemesis, was unexpectedly killed from an electric shock in a car accident in Season 5. There was honestly no one who came close to ever being the Edie we knew as the man-stealing, blackmailing and self-sabotaging girl we loved to hate. I have missed her standoff personality and cruel one-liners as well.

4. Tornado
It was easy to forget about the scandals and drama in Season 4 when a colossal tornado struck Wisteria Lane, leaving lives and even homes in shambles.

3. Bang
Remember when Nora, Lynette, Julie, Austin and several others were trapped in a convenience store in Season 3 with a crazy cold-hearted scorned woman? The moment that we’ll never forget is when Nora was shot as she laid in a pool of blood with Lynette desperately trying to keep her alive. Her last spoken words were to ask Lynette to watch her daughter when she was gone.

2. Lynette and Tom Separate
Season 8 was a chance for Marc Cherry to change everything we once knew when Lynette and Tom struggled like never before during their separation. Even though they have always had their ups and downs, working through careers, and raising a handful of children, we saw Lynette at her worst when she spent much of the beginning of this season dealing with her newly single life and realizing Tom was not by her side.

1. Mike Dies     
Thanks to the lawsuit Nicollette Sheridan launched against Marc Cherry, Mike Delfino’s death was the worst-kept secret in Desperate Housewives history. However, his death still came as a shock as fans had rooted for both him and Susan and expected for them to get their happily ever after. We shed more tears than ever when we had to say goodbye to Mike as we watched Wisteria Lane’s hottest plumber bite the bullet in Season 8.


1.Gaby, saying goodbye to her Biological child.
2. Gaby penetrating the stampede to save Juanitta.
3. Plane crashing on the day Carl was going to propose Bree.
4. Discovering that young serial killer.


All I loved about these women was their strength. I wish I was a strong person and had friends like them, they just knew how to handle their problems. I love the scene Lynett cried over that killed possum on the moment she realized that her nightmare of cancer is finally over.


My top 10 favor scenes 10. When Edie's house burn down in season 1 by Susan. 9. When Edie's threw Martha's ashes on Susan's face in the middle of the lake. 8. When Bree shot that crazy Phamacist's amplifier in front of her house in the middle of dinner party. 7. When Lynette changing Penny's diaper in the middle of an interview with her to-be-boss. 6. When Gabby was doing her lawn in her fabulous evening gown. 5. When Susan got her towel get stuck on Karl's car's door and then Karl took off. 4. When Edie and Susan got stuck in basement together and arguing about Susan's needs in men. 3. When Edie talk to Gabby about how brave Gabby was, to keep look after Carlos knowing he's about to go blind permanently ,sarcastically. 2. When Gabby kisses Tom in front of Lynette and everyone , Lynette's face expression. 1. When Bree got so drunk and passed out ,then got stuck in the shopping mall at night. 0. When Lynette tried to force the twin and Parker to get out of the pool at Mary Alice's Funeral event.


Here are my all-time top 5 FAVORITE D.H. moments:
5. Gaby finally confronting that mean and prudish teacher/nun from Gaby's school days.
4. Karl unapologetically slamming Andrew up against that dining room wall because was disrespecting Mama Bree.
3. Gaby single-handedly sending that man-stealing nun (who was after Carlos) out of town and overseas.
2. Gaby accidentally overhearing (and on her own wedding day) Victor confide in his dad as to why Victor himself REALLY married Gaby.
1. Lynette EVENING DA' SCORE by kissing Carlos in front of Gaby. SUPER HOT HOT HOT!!!!! LOL!!!!!
P.S. - With #4, I meant to put the word Andrew in-between the words because and was. MY BAD!!!!!!


I guess I had a particular soft spot for Bree just because she really left no tragedy out and still remained such an amazing strong woman but through it all these four ladys were so special each one in her own way that I loved them all dearly! I'm gonna miss them like crazy and I think I have to rewatch the series soon! I cried and laughed along with these girls and after all this is what I want from a good series: I want to care about the people in it!
My favourite secret will always be the Applewhites with the son captured in the basement and of couse favourite villain: Felica Tilman...yeah I agree she was uuaah-crazy! She could scare the living shit out of me anytime!

Mike-and how he treated all the girls, he was very respectful and even died because he wanted to protect on of them. Most irritating character to me was Susan. I think Mike deserved better. Ironically she's growing on me just because of her sincere mourning Mike's death. I hope we'll see Jesse Metcalf one more time, just cause, you know, he's sooo HOT!!

This show really had some great moments, some quotes I remembered for years now and both are from Bree.
''The opposite of love isn't hate but indifference.''
'' God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.''
I think it was from the early seasons. The most interesting relationship for me were:
Bree-Andrew- the most bizarre but interesting mother-son relationship I've seen so far, from him being gay to sleeping with her boyfriend
Lynette-Tom- just real love. she accepted his daughter, he accepted her being in love with someone else for a short time.
Gaby-Carlos- just to get over an affair with more love then before is amazing.
Gaby-Juanita- this kid is great. they challenge each other.
Mike-and how he treated all the girls, he was very respectful and even died because he wanted to protect one of them. To me he deserved far better then Susan who I found the most irritating person in the show, but ironically she's growing on me cause of her mourning Mike.


My favorite moment will always be the "Rex cries after he ejaculates" scene. A perfect example of how strong the drama/comedy combo can get.


My favourite episode of ALL TIME is episode 8 of season one because it contains two of the best moments in Desperate Housewives history. Firstly: Th death of Martha Huber contraster with Mike and Susans first time. Just amazing. Secondly: This is the scene which I believe should have number 1 spot, because it contains such raw and real emotion, and shows what a truly gifted actress Felicity Huffman is, and that is the scene where Lynette cries on the soccer field about being a bad parent. That scene has always stuck with me. Gonna miss the show....


i loved susan delfino ssoo much..she was soo clumsy and that was just the best part.Gaby was crafty..alil selfish i loved her..lynette was aweesoome...and bree..i just wish i cud taste her favryt part was susan talking about the matchin dangaris she had with her dota..i laf till this day.and oh my...were do u pipo get those handsome men from??carlos,mike...tom...damn...the list goes on..i will watch all the episodes over and over again as i have never mist an episode.
