We're finally here, folks: the end of our time on Desperate Housewives' Wisteria Lane. It has been eight long seasons of tragedy, tawdriness and tomfoolery, and it all comes down to this. But before we can kiss the ladies goodbye, there is still much left to resolve: Bree's on trial for the murder of Alejandro; Lynette and Tom Scavo are still separated; Julie Mayer is about to give birth; Renee and Ben's wedding is imminent; and Mrs. McCluskey's health has taken a turn for the worst. (Not Mrs. Landingham!) So rather than belabor every detail of the bloated two-hour finale, here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to skip to the end and tell you where everyone ends up.
Remember when Susan locked herself out of the house naked? Or when Bree changed Rex's tie in the middle of his funeral? And who could forget when Carolyn Bigsby took the local grocery store hostage?
The ladies of Desperate Housewives have kept very busy the past eight seasons and it's time to take one last walk down
memory Wisteria Lane. Before the two-hour series finale (Sunday at 9/8c on ABC), check out our top moments from...
Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic
Our top moments of the week:
12. Worst Side-Stepping: Who says that Teri Hatcher is estranged from her Desperate Housewives co-stars? Certainly not Eva Longoria, who, during an appearance on Late Show with David Letterman, semi-convincingly reports, "We all get along." Dave isn't buying it, of course, and presses on. "Didn't one get fired?" he asks. (We think he means Nicollette Sheridan.) "Yes, I forgot about that one," Longoria responds. "She didn't get fired. ... She died on the show!" So that's what that pesky multi-million dollar lawsuit was all about!
[SPOILER ALERT! If you don't want even the tiniest hints about what is going to happen on the Desperate Housewives series finale, do not play any of these clips! Don't say we didn't warn you.]
There's only two hours left of Desperate Housewives, but the ladies of Wisteria Lane have a lot of loose ends to tie up before they say goodbye...
Eva Longoria, Desperate Housewives

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?"
Gwyneth Paltrow and Amanda de Cadenet
Lifetime's The Conversation breaks every conventional rule we know about celebrity interviews.
On the series, which premieres Thursday at 11/10c, A-listers like Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Gaga and Eva Longoria open up to host Amanda de Cadenet about issues we rarely see them address elsewhere: death, drugs, body image, relationships and their sex lives.
Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic
Giuliana and Bill Rancic are teaming up with Eva Longoria for a new NBC reality dating series Ready for Love, the network announced Wednesday.
Doris Roberts and Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria and Doris Roberts have been neighbors in the Hollywood Hills for years, and on an April episode of Desperate Housewives, the two will finally work together. I ran in to Doris at the opening of Mamma Mia! at Hollywood's Pantages Theatre (the production runs through April 8), and the Everybody Loves Raymond vet told me she had a blast on the Housewives set.
