Desperate Housewives, the eight-year long TV series created by Marc Cherry which premiered in October 3, 2004 is really coming to an end. For eight seasons, we have witnessed a colossal of groundbreaking drama and comedy that certainly touched our hearts at one point or maybe even perpetually. I was a fan of this series since day one and I must say that even though Wisteria Lane was only a fantasy-lived suburb and the characters were only fictional, still they've thrown me laughing my heart out and sometimes even make me gush in heartfelt emotions with my ever reliable pillow. (We all have our little stories, right?)
In the contrary however, the reality of the series is now saying farewell to all its fans worldwide. On May 13, the two-hour finale will be the last of what we see from Lynette, Bree, Gaby, Renee and Susan. The season 8 storyline covered the accidental, self-defense murder of Gaby's stepfather, Alejandro which resulted the involvement of other parties to cover for the killing.
The final episode will definitely quench our thirst of curiosity on what will wrap up this mysterious plot. Who will stand undefeated and who will succumb to the walls of desperation? Furthermore, we have some scoop fresh from TV Line about the swan song of the most-awaited suburban finale.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that the May 13 series finale is called, “Finishing the Hat,” a nod to the Stephen Sondheim ditty from the musical Sunday in the Park With George. (It was also the title the iconic lyricist used for his 2010 memoir.) The song “describes detail by detail the exhilarating, frustrating, fulfilling and unsatisfying business of creating a piece of art,” New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley once wrote. Pop quiz: Is DH ending with a big, old-fashioned musical number, or is series creator Marc Cherry just a big Sondheim enthusiast? The answer is coming up!
