Episode Recap: Lie To Me - 2.17: "Bullet Bump"

29 July 2010 2:31 PM, PDT | TVStar | See recent TVStar news »

The governor-to be of Virginia, Charles Brooks (Richard Burgi), is glad-handing at rally, with this slogan of "No More Excuses." Clearly he hasn't heard that making excuses is part and partial to being a politician, but whatever. He makes eyes at a particularly adoring fan, Michelle (Laura Kenley), just before shots ring out and Michele falls dead. Is it a botched assassination? Or was poor Michelle the intended target? One thing's for sure, Brooks' poll numbers will get a big "bullet bump" from his life-threatening ordeal. We see the return of the love her or hate her character Clara Musso (Melissa George) in this episode of Lie to Me (TV). She's a big contributor to Brooks' campaign, and apparently, quite an admirer of his. When the police nab who they think is the shooter at the rally, Clara wants Lightman (Tim Roth) to vet out if there is further threat to her favorite candidate. »

Episode Preview: Lie To Me - 2.17: "Bullet Bump"

21 July 2010 10:52 AM, PDT | TVStar | See recent TVStar news »

Lightman (Tim Roth) and Torres (Monica Raymund) discovered that family can be a huge blind spot in a person's ability to detect lies from the truths, and the past is always something that's better left buried. When Torres' troubled sister calls on her for help when her roommate goes missing at a juvenile detention facility, Torres isn't sure what to do. But Lightman saw that Ava had reason to be scared, especially when the missing roommate turns up dead, and Foster is attacked in her home while harboring Ava. What they uncovered was a burglary ring ran by the warden, using the inmates. Crime definitely didn't pay in this case. Now, when a young campaign worker is gunned down by an unknown shooter, everyone assumes that the shooter simply missed his intended target, the Governor of Virginia (Richard Burgi). But naturally, Lightman doesn't accept the "given" story, and suspects a »

'Desperate Housewives' exclusive: Why they killed Karl and Bree's future

19 February 2010 11:18 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It was a shock to fans when "Desperate Housewives" killed Richard Burgi's Karl Mayer. Susan's ex and the man who reignited Bree's sexual fire died in this season's disastrous plane crash on Wisteria Lane.

When Zap2it posted Teri Hatcher's response to Karl's death and Korbi TV's talk with Marcia Cross about Bree's unexpressed feelings, our readers commented in droves.

So when we spoke to executive producer Bob Daily, we had to find out why they killed Karl and the path his death has set Bree on.

Warning: Spoilers!

Our readers would hate us if we didn't ask you this. Can you talk about the thought process of either killing Karl or Orson in the plane crash?

That was a very difficult position, because we loved Richard Burgi. Everybody in the show from the writers down to the Kraft services people loved Richard Burgi. He was just a favorite of everybody, »

Marcia Cross Talks Kyle vs. Orson on 'Desperate Housewives'

1 February 2010 2:30 PM, PST | | See recent BuddyTV news »

Some fans vowed to tune out of Desperate Housewives after Karl (Richard Burgi) died when a tiny plane crashed on a tiny Santa house. On the other hand, Bree (Marcia Cross), with whom he's been having an affair prior to croaking, seems to be the least affected. No hardcore grieving episode whatsoever, or maybe because she's been busy attending to wheelchair-bound and mood-swinging Orson (Kyle MacLachlan).

"I don't know whether they'll take time to explore that on camera... maybe I'll put a little bug in their ear about it. Yeah. Time for a little Burgi to show up as a ghost!" she tells Zap2it, adding that she doesn't feel that anyone could just get over something like that.

'Desperate Housewives': Teri Hatcher talks about losing Karl and her upcoming strip scene

5 January 2010 5:35 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The last episode of "Desperate Housewives" has definitely caused some ripples at Wysteria Lane. Viewers tuned in to see who was killed or injured after a plane crash landed right in the middle of the holiday block party.

In the end, Lynette lost one of her twin babies, Angie lost her blackmailer, and we all lost a character that we've gotten to know intimately over the years: Karl (played by Richard Burgi).

"I still really can't believe it," Teri Hatcher tells ABC News. "We had so many years of great, great funny moments off-camera, on-camera. I'm really going to miss him."

That's a stark contrast to Hatcher's character Susan's response. After hearing about his death and imagining herself fat and unhappy if she had stayed with Karl, Susan said she simply felt grateful. That may have stung for some fans, who had grown attached to the man who took on several roles: philanderer, »
