Desperate Housewives Season 7 Spoilers: Paul Returns

4 years ago, by

May 16, 2010

Sources confirm that Mark Moses is slated to reprise his role as Mary Alice’s creepy widower, Paul, on a full-time basis next season.

The character was last seen in season 3 when Mike paid him a visit in jail, where he’s serving time for murdering poor Martha Huber. After leaving Housewives, Moses joined the cast of Mad Men as Herman “Duck” Phillips.

Earlier this year, Housewives creator Marc Cherry hinted to me that he was thinking of bringing on a new vixen to succeed Nicollette Sheridan. “We hope to add a troublemaker,” he clarified, “but I’m not so sure it’ll be a woman.” Sneaky!

Thoughts? Anxious to see what trouble Paul will stir up this time around? Sound off below!

    I hope it is Eddie and Julie, if you remember Eddie was really artistic and Susan helped him join art classes, he looks more like Susan the DARK hair, brown eyes, same mannerisms and Julie is nothing like Susan, Eddie wanted to ‘marry’ Susan instead but maybe that bond was actually a mother and son connection? I really love that theory, i think it hits harder to home then any other families, and is the most shocking. i can see the resemblance to Julie and the drunk mom, despite their sexes they could find a way to make it work.

    it has to be penny scavo because it cant be mj cause their family is already having financial problems, it cant be the solises because they look too much like gaby and carlos and it coulnt be andrew with sam or eddi because they are not the same age and finnaly it cant be zach because we already know that his real dad is mike.

    I have a feeling that the switched up baby is either Andrew and the other son of Rex’s, or one of Gaby’s daughter.

    It’s either Penny bcoz the girl who plays her is being recast or Mj bcoz then Susan and Mike would get compensation then be able 2 buy there house back and then Paul would die or somethink and everything would go back 2 normal! plus Mj looks nothing like Mike or Susan or they’re kids Julie and Zach, maybe he got swapped with Karl’s son Evan bcoz that kid just dissapeared!! then maybe Mike and Susan end up with both Mj and Evan, that would be a twist!

    The man said…’Omg I know ONE of these families, so I don’t think it will be 2 children from the street its too unbelievable, more than likly one of our wives and a poor kid, or disabled kid from another street then its harder decisions wether or not to swicth back, I don’t think they would put a second divided between the girls after the one that’s coming with brie and gabby, it would ruin the balance, I dunno, I think maybe bries family or lynettes!

  • zazou

    okay, whoever is guessing bree’s children is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy off, i don’t remember what episode this is but didn’t bree move to wisteria lane like when her children were just about to hit their teens, that would mean her child wasn’t born in the hospital of the town they’re in. it would have to be one of susan, gabby, or lynette’s children!!!

    If it goes with two of the Wives on the street the only one that makes sense, and are the same gender & age, are Danielle and Julie. I read somewhere both are set to guest star in a few episodes this season. If it’s not that, I am thinking Penny, because as others have said above, the Scavo’s have no real story line in place other than Lynette’s old College rommate moving onto the street.

    I think it is mj and evan because they are the same age they both were born on the same day then susan would get money from sueing and move back into her old house then paul will come after them and they will kill him

    I think it’s MJ and Dave’s little girl Lila, who died in the crash because they were born on the same day in the same hospital plus it seems a housewives-esque twist!

    If you recall Season 6 finale, they showed 3 housewives potentially hinting at which one it is: Gabby, Lynette and Susan – so I do believe Bree is out.

    My thoughts:

    1.) Gabrielle Solis: It could be one of Gabby’s kids. I mean back in Season 2 when she was pregnant the first time (and didn’t know if it was Carlos’ or John Rowland’s) she had to get a paternity test to prove to Carlos (who was in jail at the time) that is was his. But, she fell down the stairs andh ad a miscarriage anyway so it didn’t matter. Yes, Gabby’s kids look like they are related but history may repeat itself: Gabby had the two kids when Carlos was blind so maybe there was a switch. hmmmm

    2.) Susan Mayer: I think she has enough on her plate at the moment having moved to an apartment, now has Paul Young renting her house. In terms of Julie, it may be true. It may not. Doubt it’s MJ because we saw it. But Julie and Eddie is an intriguing notion.

    3.) Lynette Scavo: she believes in and loves family and her husband so much I think this is automatically ruled out. It would put such a damper on the family unit and make her storyline very very dark.

    guys it has to be mj and evan because susan went and changed the name of mj so he didnt have a name for a while so that would be the perfect chance but it cant be lila daves child because susan new she was having a boy and they new that they were having a girl plus daves in jail then susan and mike could sue the hosbital get money move back in their house and then paul would do something

    Now we all know. Reality seems so boring compared to TV lol.
    I knew it wouldn’t be MJ as it wouldn’t make sense. If they did that they would be throwing too many storylines at Susan and make her the central character, they needed to keep it balanced. Also can I just say, to everyone who kept going on about hair colour (when talking about MJ being Daves because he was blonde), I have very blonde hair and both my parents have dark brown. Hair colour can vary within families it depends upon the genetics.
    What else do we think will happen this series then?
    Now that Gabby knows about Carlos’ mam being killed by Andrew, and Carlos knows about their daughter, the Solis’ are going to have an interesting few episodes when they reveal their secrets to each other. Something has to happen with Penny, at the moment she is more like a filler character.
    Bree is gunna get jiggy with her decorator, Susan and Mike will have a barney, Lynette’s gotta do something interesting again….
