A Great Season Finale, 24 February 2014
Author: Desertman84 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

One Wonderful Day is the final episode of the first season of Desperate Housewives.The following events happen:

1.Tom finds out through his boss that Lynette tried to get him fired, and decides to be a stay-at-home dad, telling Lynette that it is now her turn to work for the family.

2.The other housewives come to comfort Bree while she stays with Rex at the hospital. They make amends with each other.

3.Edie meets the new residents of Wisteria Lane.

4.Gabrielle testifies for her husband Carlos.Also,John finally tells Carlos that he was the one having an affair with his wife.

5.Susan is taken as a hostage when Zach holds her at gunpoint, hoping to find Mike.

6.A series of flashbacks reveal Mary Alice's real history and her reason for suicide.

The season finale was absolutely fantastic. It was very well written and acted. Plausible through out and just plain entertaining. The conclusion to the Mary Alice's story was perfect. Just perfect. The opening scene was excellent where everything is explained in the flashbacks.It was very well done and also very scary.

Just a great show.
