    Just finished! Is anyone else as sad as I am that they left the lane and it ended on a cliffhanger?

    The cliffhanger bit was annoying. I can't say it was a great finale episode but I guess they had to tidy all the lose ends and stuff.

    Yeah I thought that was annoying too, why the need to end on a cliffhanger? :mad: I was really disappointed with this episode considering every other of DH's season finales have been brilliant! They should have focused more on the housewives and Karen's death instead of Renee and her wedding.

    I did love the the bit where Susan was driving down the lane and the ghosts of the people that had lived there were watching over her but there was one person missing...EDIE!!

    I found it all the more sadder now that Kathryn Joosten died in the same circumstances as her character, Karen McCluskey, last weekend

    Yeah, I didn't like the cliffhanger much either, but I can't say I'm really bothered about this new character anyway.

    All that going into the future stuff was kinda cheesy, but pretty sweet I suppose. Reminds me of how cheesily the whole Harry Potter series ended.

    I know, I noticed that too . The actress has been in some legal battle with the producer, which is probably why she didn't return, but it's pretty sad considering that she was a major character in it for so long.

    Renee is pretty annoying - I really don't know how her partner puts up with her! Susan, although sweet, is pretty annoying and dumb too - why couldn't she just call an ambulance instead of selfishly stealing the limousine?

    It was great... I'm glad they told us how their lives unfolded... and I didn't mind the cliffhanger because it doesn't matter - the ladies have left the lane and the secrets behind!

    I'm glad they added Renee towards the end; I love Vanessa Williams.

    I was sort of disappointed with the ending, I thought it'd be better. And yeah I thought the ending was a bit annoying too cos we'll never know what happens next. I am gonna miss it though, Gaby was my favourite.

    I dont think it was so much a cliffhanger, it was merely there to show that the lane is always going to have 'secrets'.

    I watched the finale when Americans watched it. I personally thought it was sad that they never kept in touch afterwards for poker.

    I really liked the ending, I was surprised that they never stayed in touch I didn't see the new person coming in as a cliffhanger per se I just saw it that there will always be secrets on the lane so I didn't mind it at all.

    I agree it was done kinda quickly and that was that. But if you look at the final episode it mirror's the pilot and was made to be done like this.

    Susan enters the show as a single and independant woman with a child, and leaves the same with two children and a grandchild. The show starts on a thursday when Mary Alice commits suicide and ends on a Thursday when Susan leaves. Bree enters a conservative woman and leaves a conversative woman. Gabby and Carlos were introduced arguging and quarreling and left the same and Lynette entered a family and business woman struggling with kids but had to leave work, and exits the show a family woman struggling with grandkids and a successful businesswoman.
