Goodbye Edie!!!!
14 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look Into Their Eyes and You See What They Know is the last episode in the show of Nicollete Sheridan.She will definitely be missed after being among the main characters of Desperate Housewives and part of the group of women at Wisteria Lane.Many viewers will be really sad to see her go.

In it,we see her character Edie Britt suffer a tragic car accident.The women of the street are brought together by this heart-wrenching event to go on a road trip with the intention of giving her ashes to her son. Added to that,we get to see the women of Wisteria Lane reminisce their life experiences with her.

Susan remembers how their great rivalry started off and how it could have turned out to be a great friendship at a "what if" scenario.Meanwhile,Lynette remembers how at one time Edie took her to a chemotherapy session when she was diagnosed with cancer.As for Bree,she recalls how Edie saved her marriage and her soul and Gabrielle reminds everyone how she and Edie hanged out together on a fun and sensual woman's night out.Finally,Mrs Cluskey tells everyone that Edie was indeed a great mother.This was definitely a wonderful episode as there were laughter and tears as we bid goodbye to the Edie character.
