What the heck? "five years later" are u kidding me?
26 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

First of all, I love DH, I have seen every episode of every season. But whats the deal with the "five years later" thing? I really enjoyed the episode until the ending, it was really exiting to watch as always. But was this the last episode ever? at least it seemed that way.

This thing with Susan leaving mike? and the new guy looked like Adam the British guy she dated before she got back with mike, was it him? And Gabriel, thats just bad, shes known as the cool, selfish and beautiful woman, not a mom to two ugly kids, thats just not how i pictured it! The thing with Lynette, Katherine and Bree is not surprising though. Thats okay, but still I am a bit disappointed. Hope DH continues in the fall and that we get a big explanation.

Just felt I had to write something, got a bit surprised. Over N out
