Desperate Housewives' Final Season: Which Couples Are Heating Up? Which Are Falling Apart?

The four that started it all are coming back together for the final season of Desperate Housewives. But instead of a Wisteria Lane block party, it's a dead body that will pull Susan, Lynette, Bree and Gaby into each other's lives in Season 8. "We're bonded together by this secret, and that really tests all of our friendships, but it also brings us closer together," Eva Longoria tells TVGuide.com. "Every episode is a roller coaster: one minute, we're mad at each other and then we're not mad at each other. One minute, we're together and we're the four musketeers, and then we're not."

Desperate Housewives' Jonathan Cake: "Love Doesn't Run Smooth" For Bree and Chuck

Jonathan Cake knew from the moment he first stepped onto Wisteria Lane that he was in for a wild ride on Desperate Housewives with his new co-star, Marcia Cross.

What's the deal with Calleigh and Delko on CSI: Miami? Should we give up hope on ever seeing them together again? — Megan
ADAM:

"Alex has got one that involves orphans [from Africa]. It's kind of crazy and funny." But! It's just possible that Alex's stunt may... read more
