Will Dave Murder Edie on Desperate Housewives?

at .

While we know that Nicollette will be leaving Desperate Housewives soon, we still have no idea how the show is going to write Edie off just yet.  TV Guide recently asked Neal McDonough who plays her devious husband, Dave, on the show about Nicollette's exit.

So people are dying to know, does Dave murder Edie?  When asked, Neal simply laughed and responded with "Uh ... I am sworn to secrecy."

But Neal did at least say that "[Nicolette] is going to have a fantastic sendoff.  We've had a blast, and I'm going to be sadder than anyone to see her go."

Neal did offer up the following when asked how Dave would react if Edie was hypothetically killed, "Dave would be crushed, because Dave really does love Edie. And that's what I love about playing this character. [He] really does love Edie so much, and a piece of him loves Mike as his best friend."

Wow, actually sounds unlikely Dave would kill her.  Neal says that there's "another piece of him that has to slap him out of it every once in a while and say, 'Stay the course. Do your job. You have to finish this."

We'll have more for you on Edie's departure from Desperate Housewives as soon as we get our hands on it!

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.


There were many things Gabrielle Solis knew for certain. She knew red was her color. She knew diamonds went with everything and she knew men were all the same. But the one thing Gabrielle knew above all else...she would never want children. Unfortunately for Gabrielle, her husband, Carlos, felt differently. Yes, Gabrielle Solis knew without a doubt she didn't want to be a mother, but what she couldn't know was just how much her husband wanted to be a father, or that he'd been tampering with her birth control for months. Or that within one week's time, she'd be pregnant
