Desperate Housewives

Series 7 - 16. Searching

Radio Times

Now that Beth’s husband has chucked her out of the marital home, she’s worried about what the future holds. “You’re going to live a lonely, depressing life in a ratty apartment with plenty of time to think about all the people you disappointed – most of all me,” Felicia prophesies unsympathetically, before telling the guard to delete her daughter’s name from the prison visiting list.

However, fate has other ideas and, in a startling development that takes us right back to the very first scenes of DH, a weirdly robotic Beth decides she should do something meaningful with her life and so does something quite, well, desperate.

About this programme

16/23. Susan tries to make the most of her remaining time after doctors advise her to settle any unfinished business, but a romantic pre-anniversary celebration with Mike comes to an abrupt end. Meanwhile, Bree searches for a donor for her friend, and discovers two possibilities close to home. Gabrielle and Lee enter their daughters into a talent show, and Lynette tries to educate Renee in the responsibilities of parenthood.
