Who Will Die on Desperate Housewives?
Ratings for the third season of Desperate Housewives aren't anything like the first season, so producers and writers are trying to boost the show up to help it return to its glory. For November sweeps they are planning to off one of the characters.
The episode involves Laurie Metcalf (who has already debuted on the show) going crazy at a local supermarket killing one of the supporting characters. There were rumors that Edie would be killed off, but it looks like Nora is going to get it. That's the rumor anyway.
A violent chain of events is set off when Lynette (Felicity Huffman), Nora (Kiersten Warren) and Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) go to the grocery store and run into new neighbor Carolyn Bigsby, played by Metcalf.
Lynette puts her foot in her mouth by introducing Nora to Carolyn as "The woman my husband had an affair with before we were married."
The misguided joke sets off Carolyn, because she's actually on the premises to kill her cheating husband, who owns the store. She pulls a gun and takes the three women hostage!
Then, just as the SWAT team arrives, Carolyn panics and begins firing the gun wildly. After wounding Lynette in the arm and killing Nora, she points the gun at Edie. But before she can fire, Carolyn is taken out in a hail of bullets by the SWAT team. When the smoke clears, a grief-stricken Lynette convinces Tom (Doug Savant), to add another child to their brood, by adopting the daughter he'd had with Nora during their affair.
Unfortunately, I was hoping that dumb-ass Eva LongWhoria would get it. Looks like she's around for sweeps anyway.
