Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Carlos Solis (as Ricardo Antonio Chavira)
Father Dugan


Tom and Lynette pretend still to be harmonious spouses for the kids' sake, but after she enjoyed comfort sex and tells him coldly that changes nothing he come clean. Carlos needs to relive his conscience, but the trusted confessor Dugan is being replaced with novice Benson, whom he can't confide in. Mike thinks there's marital trouble as Susan avoids all contact with her friends, even the annual barbecue, after the pact of silence over Gaby's stepfather's corpse burial in the woods. Bree is confident she can use her affair with detective Chuck Vance as a warning system, but the victim's car causes urgent problems for her and Gaby, which only a godsend car-thief solves. Renee's confidence that new neighbor Ben Faulkner will fall for her like previous male preys proves utterly misplaced. Written by KGF Vissers

The First Episode Of The Final Season Of Desperate Housewives Begins
22 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first episode of the final season of Desperate Housewives begins.While it maybe too early to shed tears as it is only the first episode entitled "Secrets That I Never Want To Know",I must just say that it definitely should have had another season or two after this final season.Anyway,let's summarize the events of what happened.

It started when Carlos murdered Gabrielle's evil stepfather and the cover-up of the housewives was somewhat really unexpected and far from viewer's expectations I could probably say.Both husband and wife try to support each other especially in Carlos' case his guilt burdens him.As for Susan,she starts to withdraw from her friends and family after the said event.Meanwhile,Lynette and Tom are probably heading towards divorce as their marriage is disintegrating and the tension brought about by the cover-up makes things even worse. Finally,Bree now becomes extra careful since her new fiancé is now connected to the authorities being a detective.

The first episode obviously started with a bang.Now,viewers are going to take a closer look on how things are going to be at Wisteria Lane especially after the housewives buried the dead body of Gabrielle's stepfather.Tension rises among the housewives.Trouble begins.Only one can wait and see on how things are going to turn out as we approach the last episode for the final season of one of the best shows that ever graced on our TV screens.
