'Desperate Housewives': Tornado Mixes It Up
A twister hit Wisteria Lane on Sunday night in a cliffhanger episode. But this much we know:
Bree and Orson (and baby Benjamin);
Katherine and Adam (though now their marriage may not survive);
Susan and Mike (likewise on their marriage -- if Mike doesn't get clean and Susan remains resolute, and how likely is that?);
Gaby and Edie (who formed an odd bond in the face of disaster; have to love Gaby's jump to confession and trying to wipe the slate clean);
Lynette and Mrs. McCluskey (who survived with that mattress and bathtub move - pretty impressive!).
Apparent casualties (and we have to hedge with "apparent" -- because anything can happen):
Mayor Victor (but that picket through his body looked pretty final);
Sylvia (though her exit, being sucked away by the tornado, looked like something out of a cheap flick; expenses were spared there, weren't they?).
Carlos (left lying in an outside doorway);
The rest of Lynette's family - Tom and the kids;
Ida - and her cat.
Any guesses as to who might have survived in the last category? Any ways you would have written the story and/or outcomes differently? Were there any "twists" that really caught you off guard? The destruction of the set,
with the long shot of the debris at the McCluskey home was pretty impressive? The wind-machine effects were well done also.
We'll have lots of time to mull this one because it's the last episode for awhile. Production on "Desperate Housewives" has been halted because of the writers' strike. A spokesman for the show told us last week that there's one more finished episode, but no decision has been made as to when it might air, though January is a possibility.
Time will tell....
