All good things eventually come to an end, and in the eighth and final season, the stakes for everyone on Wisteria Lane are at an all-time high.
Carlos's murder of Gaby's evil stepfather Alejandro and the cover up by Susan, Gaby, Bree and Lynette has far reaching effects. Feelings of guilt begin to overcome everyone in different ways.
Susan starts to withdraw from her friends and family, and Gaby works to reach out to Carlos while his guilt weighs heavily upon him.
As Lynette and Tom are grappling with their disintegrating marriage and impending separation, Lynette is having trouble making the right choices ever since she participated in the cover-up.
And Bree must be especially careful around her new love, Detective Chuck Vance (Jonathan Cake).
Meanwhile a new sexy neighbour moves to town, Ben Faulkner (Charles Mesure), and he's Renee's first order of business.
