Desperate Housewives wraps its eight-season run on Sunday, May 13 (9/8c on ABC) and what a long, strange trip it's been for the ladies of Wisteria Lane! As we prepare to kiss our favorite harried housewives goodbye, TVGuide.com takes a look back at each of the four protagonist's biggest triumphs, greatest downfalls and all the juicy hookups, makeups and breakups in between.
Check back every day this week for our takes on the other Housewives' wild rides...
Eva Longoria knows what it's like to be let down by the finale of one of her favorite TV
series. Nearly two years after Lost signed off, she's still grumbling that she wasn't given "a better explanation of what the f--- [the island] was. I wasn't keen on The Sopranos finale, either. All that investment and this is it?"
Dana Delany, Kyle MacLachlan and Andrea Bowen aren't the only ones reappearing on Wisteria Lane: Shawn Pyfrom is set to return in one of the final episodes of Desperate Housewives, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Some Desperate Housewives alums will return for the show's eight and final season.
Dana Delany, Kyle MacLachlan and Andrea Bowen are all set to come back before the ABC series signs off in May 2012, according to TVLine. When they'll appear and how long they'll stick around remains unknown.
Sarah Paulson, last seen on Desperate Housewives back in 2007, is returning to Wisteria Lane in her role as Lynette's loser sister, Lydia. But oh how things have changed. "Lynette always helped put the pieces back in Lydia's disastrous personal life, but she is now engaged and shows up with her new fiancé," previews executive producer Bob Daily. With Lynette newly separated from Tom, Lydia is now the one offering a shoulder to cry on. "We'll hear her say, 'Oh Lynette, I'm so sorry. What can I do to help?' The seeds of sibling rivalry are planted as the roles are reversed." TV fans may also remember Sarah from such series as Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Deadwood.
Andrea Bowen, Maiara Walsh
The latest Desperate Housewives news has us in the mood for a threesome.
The facts are these: Drea de Matteo's character will have a 19-year-old son who we hear is a bit of a lady-killer. Maiara Walsh, who plays Gaby's headstrong niece, has been promoted to be a series regular. ABC has announced that Andrea Bowen, Susan's eye-rolling daughter, Julie, will return to the show for the Season 6 premiere. (TVGuide.com has confirmed that her stay on Wisteria Lane will be significantly longer.)
Isn't it time we got these crazy kids together? So let's cast the Italian Stallion already, shall we?

Is Bones coming back this fall? — Byerley
MATT: Well of course it is, on Thursday, Sept. 17. And if only because I had Eddie McClintock (now starring on SyFy's Warehouse 13) dropping by for a video Q&A, I reached out to Bones boss Hart Hanson to see if Eddie's Special Agent Tim Sullivan might ever reenter Temp's life. "We've always thought he might return one day, dead or alive. I prefer alive, actually," Hanson told the Buzz. McClintock in turn told me, "I had such a great time with Emily [Deschanel] and David [Boreanaz], so for Hart to say that makes me happy. I would love to [do Bones again]." Hmm, W13 did just wrap production on Season 1....

T.R. Knight knows what its like to be at the center of a media circus. The Greys Anatomy star, whose feud with former costar Isaiah Washington played out in the press, defended his beleaguered pal Ellen DeGeneres, currently embroiled in her own scandal. DeGeneres ignited a controversy last week after she sent her adopted dog Iggy to live with her hairdresser instead. After incurring the wrath of the adoption agency Mutts and Moms, the dog was placed with a new family. "I heard that she was crying on her show," Knight said to TV Guide at the L.A. AIDS Walk about Degeneres infamous breakdown on her daytime show. "That breaks your heart."Knight, who chose Degeneres show to talk about the incident where Washington called him a homophobic slur on the Grey's set, reasons, "Obviously something went wrong or else she wouldnt cry."Desperate Housewives regular Andrea Bowen also expressed her support for the talk-show host at the AIDS walk on Oct. 21. "I feel bad ...
