Desperate Housewives Spoilers: Gale Harold Back on May 3

at .

Just six months after being seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, actor Gale Harold is now fully recovered, looking good and according to Ausiello Files, ready to return to ABC's Desperate Housewives.

Gale Harold will return to the show as Susan's ex, Jackson, on May 3rd.  According to creator Marc Cherry, "Quite frankly, I think he looks even better [than before the crash]."  When Jackson returns he comes with a "very important question for Susan -- one that she's kind of stunned by."

While Harold's accident far from ruined the show, it definitely made Cherry and company change plans.  "We were planning to end his storyline [around midseason]. But because of the accident, we get to bring him back for the end of the season, which will be a nice kind of full circle journey for Susan in season 5."

As for whether Harold will be in season six of Desperate Housewives, Cherry hints that the once commitment-phobic actor might be willing to come back.  He says, "I think Gale may have changed his priorities [since the accident].  But those decisions won't be made until May."

Desperate Housewives Quotes

(narrating) Family. There is nothing more important. They're the ones who show up when we are in trouble. The ones who push us to succeed. The ones who help keep our secrets. But what of those who have no family to rely on? What happens to those poor souls who have no loved ones to help them in their hour of need? Well, most learn to walk life's road by themselves. But a sad few of us, simply stop trying.

There is a prayer intended to give strength to people faced with circumstances they don't want to accept. The power of the prayer comes from it's insight into human nature. Because so many of us rage against the hand that life has dealt us. Because so many of us are cowardly. And afraid to stand up for what is right. Because so many of us give into despair when faced with an impossible choice. The good news for those who utter these words is that God will hear you and answer your prayer. The bad news is that sometimes the answer is no.
