Desperate Housewives Spoilers: What is Paul's Plan?

at .

On this week's Desperate Housewives episode, it became evident that Paul Young wants to buy up various pieces of property on Wisteria Lane.

But why?

Simple, creator Marc Cherry tells TV Guide: he plans to fill them with undesirable tenants and transform the posh neighborhood. It's all part of his scheme to pit the women against each other.

This plan will climax on the final episode of 2010,  when "we'll be having a huge, huge scene with tons of scary people - more extras than we've ever had," Cherry previewed.

This isn't the first time Cherry has teased a major event for this season. In an earlier interview, he said a main character will be killed off around February Sweeps time.

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.
