Eva Longoria, Desperate Housewives
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.

Desperate Housewives doesn't wrap its eight-year run until May, but the grim reaper will be paying an early visit in March when a "major character" will die. As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, the passing will be "pivotal" to the rest of the season.
So which character is being laid to rest? We weigh the pros and cons for killing off each of the housewives and their house husbands in order from most likely to eat it to least:
1. Mike (James Denton)
Why He Will Die: Producers haven't really known what to do with Mike in recent years so death would finally give him purpose and send Susan on an intriguing new path. And it makes narrative sense, too: Mike made himself known to the bad guys when he convinced Ben not to borrow...
For most ex-cons, becoming an accessory to murder wouldn't be something to celebrate. But for Mike Delfino (James Denton) on Desperate Housewives, learning that Susan had helped Carlos cover up killing Gaby's stepfather was, oddly, a huge sigh of relief.
"It was good news for him. Obviously, it's a little bit disturbing because of what happened, but I think the worst news for him would have been the affair he was convinced Susan and Carlos were having," Denton tells TVGuide.com. "I think he was more relieved than anything."

Yes, try as she might, the always subtle Susan (who are we kidding?) ended up spilling the beans to Mike at the end of last week's episode. Although his previous life behind bars...
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."

This deep, dark secret is the fact that Carlos killed Gaby's abusive step-father in the season finale. Susan, Lynette and Bree walked in just in time to see the dead body and the five longtime neighbors agreed to cover-up Carlos' big oops. But how will this secret affect their love lives? Will Gaby and Carlos be able to handle the pressure? Will Bree be able to keep the murder hidden from her detective boyfriend? Is there still hope for Lynette and...
Well, they said the final scene would be a shocker, and they were right. I am speechless. You know how much I love my Edie. Would it be too much to ask to have Carlos heroically and miraculously walk in during the very first scene this fall and save her? I do not want this show to go on without Nicollette Sheridan. Yes, Edie is not one of the four main housewives, but the show would not be the same without her. Soap operas have had people hang themselves and be saved at the last minute. Until I get a confirmation, I'm going to spend this entire summer believing Edie is not dead. Just call me DID "Dave In Denial."Except for that ending, I was very happy with this season's finale episode. I thought it had the perfect Desperate Housewives blend of drama and comedy. I expected to be satisfied after seeing that departing coexecutive producer Joe Keenan was one of the writers (along with talented fellow coexec producer Kevin Murphy). Besides having the same job title for all those ...
Admit it you got a little teary-eyed like I did at the end when Lynette was told the bad news that she might have lymphoma. And what did it for me was Tom slowly grabbing Lynette's hand and holding it, after she had tried the same thing with him (before the news), and he had rejected her hand. That scene between Felicity Huffman and Doug Savant with Lynette and Tom fighting in bed, the one that led them to get Lynette to the hospital, was a prime example of two actors at their very best. Lynette finally admitting to Tom that she did indeed have feelings for Rick (but "nothing happened") was such a powerful scene by itself then the cancer scare. I was a mess. You could tell how desperate Tom was getting earlier, sneaking in a marriage counselor (William Ragsdale) to talk with Lynette in a very "ambush therapy" kind of way. Lynette was not about to let Herman's Head get into her head.Speaking of messes, thankfully Susan and Mike cleaned up the possible mess of dueling we...
I just knew that Victor Lang (John Slattery) was going to turn out to be a bad guy. He seemed too perfect. But didn't you think his mean streak came out of nowhere? He acted as though Gabrielle had never done a stupid thing before with the way he yelled at her. Yes, Gaby jumped in his arms like a child when it looked as though he was going to win the mayoral race. Yes, Gaby can be a "high maintenance nightmare," as brilliantly described by Vern (Alec Mapa). And yes, Gaby got arrested for her shenanigans with the cop (Brendan Patrick Connor), ripping up the parking tickets since she thought it was acceptable behavior for the new "First Lady of Fairview." But did Victor have to yell at her like an abusive father to a daughter? You knew as soon as he saw the bruise on her wrist caused by the cop that Victor was going to have something done to the guy. Enter the two thugs, beating up the cop. But Gaby's going ahead with the wedding. Let's see if she indeed says "I do" in two weeks.Kudos...
