Desperate Housewives


Series 7 - Episode 16 Searching



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.


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.
