Housewives Season Final, Free
It is the biggest night of the year. Tonight is the season finale of Desperate Housewives (season 4). Due to Writers Guild of America strike, Desperate Housewives the episodes of season 4 was shortened to only 17.
Some names have interesting meanings, and the housewives in Wisteria Lane do have some meaningful names:
Lynette is how the French describe “a pretty one”; Katherine means "purity" by ancient Greeks; Gabrielle is a Hebrew word meaning “God is my strength”; Bree is an Irish name meaning “power”.
Last week (part 1 of season final) on Wisteria Lane, Lynette was in jail as Kayla successfully set her up. Then the evil Kayla admitted to her dad, Tom, that she lied about everything. But she refused to tell police and all other people that she lied and burnt herself when Tom refused to let her stay in the house. (read: threatening tone) Adam had a plan to help Katherine and Dylan, but Dylan's father Wayne kidnapped him. Susan and Mike finally decided to call the baby Maynerd. Gabrielle felt sorry that she had to tell police that Ellie was a drug dealer.

Watching Desperate Housewives season final on a 52-inch LCD TV in full HD resolution: priceless
And there's something money can't buy, for everything else, do NOT interrupt Antony during Desperate Housewives.
Mary Alice Young quote:
“What's in a name? Do the labels we attach to people tell us everything we need to know? If we say she's just a child, does this mean she's truly innocent? Does calling her a drug dealer prove she's purely evil? Will a man known as ‘preacher’ always practice what he preaches? Can a man branded a villain possess the qualities of a hero? The truth is a name can never really tell you who someone is... any more than it can tell you what they're capable of.”
Last time on Desperate Housewives, (Season 4 episode 16, The Gun Song):
Child Protective Services shows up at the Scavos to follow up on Kayla's complaint that Lynette has been abusing her. Lynette says Kayla is exaggerating, but there is surveillance video of her slapping Kayla in the store. If anything else happens, it could jeopardize the custody of all her children. Kayla overhears this and burns her arm with a curling iron and blame Lynette, who is immediately placed under arrest.
When Tom visits Lynette at the jail, she says it's up to him to fix this, since Kayla is his daughter. Tom tells Kayla that when Lynette gets out of jail, she and Kayla won't be able to live in the same place anymore. Kayla assumes Lynette will be moving out, but Tom explains that Kayla's the one who'll be moving. Desperate to stay with Tom, Kayla admits that she made up the whole thing and that she burned herself because she hates Lynette so much. She asks if she confesses everything to the police, whether she can stay and Tom tells her, no, she can't. Kayla insists she'll keep lying, in that case, but the psychiatrist has been listening in and the jig is up. Kayla goes to live with her grandparents. As she's being driven away, she sobs, "Daddy, I'm sorry."

Bree is quietly trying to sneak out of church when Orson announces he's not going to let the reverend tell anyone that "Bree Hodge is a slut." Bree rushes to the reverend's office and finds Orson unconscious on the ground. She goes to the hospital to check on Orson, telling them she's his wife.

Susan and Mike agree to name their son Conner, but then Mike's grandfather dies and he wants to name the boy after him. Susan agrees, but regrets her decision when he tells her her that his grandfather's name was Maynard. Her friends try to persuade her to change the name since it's so awful. Susan goes to alter the name on the birth certificate, but is told that Mike has to sign it as well. Susan levels with the nurse about why she needs the name changed, but the nurse, whose name is Vanessa, sticks to the rules. Susan sees her chance when a new nurse, named Griselda, takes over her post.
Susan's little change has gone unnoticed, until the hospital arrives with farewell balloons that read "Bon Voyage, Conner." Susan has to confess that she hates the name "Maynard." Mike tells her how his grandfather raised him after his father went to jail and that he wants to give his son someone to live up to, so Susan resigns herself to the name.
An undercover policeman poses as a handyman at Gabrielle's so that when Ellie leaves, they can break into her room. But when Ellie comes back unannounced and finds them there, Gabrielle has no choice but to pretend she's been having an affair with him! Ellie wants to know what she sees in the overweight schlub, and Gaby unconvincingly describes how passionate he is. But Ellie feels sorry for Carlos and tells him about the "affair." He angrily confronts Gaby, who tells him it was just a cover story.
When Gaby tells Ellie that she knows she snitched on her, Ellie reveals her own sad story: Her mother cheated on her father and that led to Ellie ending up on the streets, doing things she hated to survive. She says she'd hate anything bad to happen to Gaby and Carlos, because she loves them. The police call to let Gaby know that the supplier is on his way and they're about to arrest him and Ellie.
