A brilliant finale to a brilliant series,
14 June 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Finishing The Hat is a great,funny and emotional finale to Desperate Housewives,I will miss this show very much but they couldn't have ended it better.The montage and the end showing that all th women separated made me want to cry,not to forget the last drive around Wisteria Lane,but I didn't think there was any need for the final scene showing the women opening the box and locking it away.

Leading up to Renee and Bens wedding day,Susan tells the girls shes moving away.Lynette and Tom get back together,when Katherine Mayfair returns with a job opportunity for Lynette that Tom doesn't want her to take.Gaby is the bread winner now and Carlos feels like she is turning into the old him.Bree is taking care of Karin and Roy because Karin does not have much longer to live and Brees Lawyer and old boyfriend Trip gives Karin a stereo she wanted to listen to her favorite song over and over again before she dies and Bree begins to rethink about him.

On Renees wedding day,Julies water breaks all over Renees dress,Susan robs the limbo to make it to the hospital.Gaby and Renee run to the wedding and Ben forgives her for taking so long and the two happily carry on with there big day.Lynette decides not to take the job,but Tom says if she wants she can if it real makes her happy.Bree forgives Trip for what happened in court and they get back together.Gaby tells Carlos she still will give plenty of time for him and there two daughters and they forgive each other.

When Roy plays Karins song again,we see a montage using the song of,Julie giving birth to the baby and Lynette,Tom and Porter rushing to the hospital,B\en and Renee celebrating there new marriage,Gaby and Casrlos dancing with there children and Bree and Trip rushing to Roy and Karins house when she dies and Roy gives her one last kiss to say goodbye to his true love.

The girls all play one last game of poker as they all separate for each other.We see Susan driving away from Wisteria Lane with Julie,MJ and the new baby.As they have one last drive,we see Mike and many other characters that have died throughout the series watching them.While the woman who buys Susans house trys to hide one of her secrets that she finds in a box,that we will never find out.

-Goodbye Desperate Hosewives,you will be missed.
