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...
Since Once Upon a Time premiered, the big question has been whether Emma (Jennifer Morrison), the unwitting daughter of Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), would be able to rescue the trapped fairy tale characters of Storybrooke, Maine. The first step in that process, of course, has been the most difficult: getting her to believe that fairy tale characters are actually real.
The Amazing Race kicked off Season 20 with what Phil Keoghan called the "most bizarre Pit Stop." On Sunday (8/7c, CBS), the season will close with the series' "biggest shocker ever." For the first time, the team who arrives first at the finish line will be turned around for not completing a task correctly. "We were shocked as the viewers are gonna be," Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "We were like, 'What just happened?' ... I couldn't believe it happened. Never have we had to tell the team that comes in first that they didn't win the $1 million. But it's good to know we can still have firsts 20 seasons in!" Of course, that team still has a chance to win if they can rectify their mistake at the Roadblock before the next team arrives.
So which team — married couple Dave and Rachel, Big Brother's Brendon and Rachel, border patrol agents Art and JJ, or dating divorcees Vanessa and Ralph — makes the potentially fatal error?
Chris Zylka and Phoebe Tonkin
"Nick is back in a big way," Chris Zylka warns.
Way to understate the obvious! First, The Secret Circle spent time introducing us to the new coven members who would help Cassie (Britt Robertson) discover her magic, only to then kill one of the series' supposed main characters off in the fifth episode. Nick (Louis Hunter) was then replaced by his older, more brooding brother Jake (Zylka), who eventually went from working with the Witch Hunters to against them.

Now, it seems, Nick has been resurrected to track down the remaining crystal and thwart the Circle's attempts at combining them to create the sure-fire weapon against the Witch Hunters, the Crystal Skull. How will the Circle feel about Nick's return? For Jake, it may not be a happy reunion. "Jake's going to...
Melissa Rauch and Simon Helberg
Don't be fooled by the photos you've seen. Just because Bernadette is in a wedding gown and is arm-in-arm with a tuxed-out Howard doesn't mean the two will actually make it down the aisle on The Big Bang Theory.
"There is very much an attempt to have a wedding, but as has been the case with them, there will be further obstacles," executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVGuide.com. "There will be a lot of things in play and then it's a question of 'What do I want?'"

Howard (Simon Helberg) wants to marry Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), of course, but he also wants ...
It's the moment we've been waiting for: the Grey's Anatomy residents are taking their medical boards this Thursday, and we'll finally get to see how each of the docs handled it. By the looks of the sneak peek below, Jackson (Jesse Williams) is just as nerve-wracked as the rest of them. Why? Well, he did just sleep with his best friend, and then learn that his mentor and his mother hooked up. TVGuide.com turned to Williams to get the scoop on the medical boards, the future for April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson — and Jesus, apparently — and how Jackson will handle a possible Slexie reunion...

Does Castle's finale have a cliff-hanger like last year's? I'm not sure I could handle that! — Jessica
ADAM: Creator Andrew W. Marlowe hints that Beckett will be experiencing a lot of changes in the finale, and the domino effect of said changes leads to this season's climax. And while I'm pretty sure that no one's life will be hanging in the balance, Castle-Beckett fans will likely still be in for a long summer. Why? Marlowe says this finale doesn't lend itself to a large time jump between seasons. "The way we're ending this season, people will want to know what happens in the immediate aftermath," he teases.
Will the rest of the Fringe team regain their memories before the end of the season? — Larry
