Storyline

After Edie suddenly dies in a car accident, she narrates her story from beyond the grave when Susan, Bree, Gabrielle, Lynette, and Karen McCluskey travel out of town to visit Edie's estranged teenage son, Travers, at his boarding school to deliver her ashes to him. During the long car drive, each of the five women think back to their most significant time in Edie's life. Susan recalls how she first met the superficial and man-lusting Edie and how she taught the klutzy Susan how to deal with her place in the world. Lynette recalls how Edie took her to a rough biker bar while she was ill with cancer and encouraged her to push on. Bree recalls how Edie encouraged her to visit Orson in prison for his crimes. Gabby recalls how she inadvertently challenged Edie's superiority complex during a night on the town in carousing for men. Finally, Mrs. McCluskey recalls how Edie confided in her about how she gave away her son to protect him from her own self-destructive lifestyle; she planned to ... Written by matt-282

Goofs

When the wives are driving to deliver Edie's ashes and their tire blows out, Susan asks if anybody knows how to change a tire. But in season 1x12, "Every Day A Little Death," Susan changed Edie's tire for her (ironically on her way to spread Martha Huber's ashes) so she would have known how. See more »

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.
