After an on-screen kiss between Susan and Jessie, "Desperate Housewives" moves on with another shocking upturn. This may as well be the episode where a main character is dead. Nicollette Sheridan who plays Edie Brit had announced her departure from the show by having her character killed in an electric shock.
The March 22 episode is aptly called "A Spark to Pierce the Dark". Bree considers selling her business to save her marriage, Lynette is threatened by her new boss, boundaries are crossed for Gaby and Carlos, Katherine is caught in the most unexpected of circumstances and Edie's worst fears come true.
Spoiled previously, Edie's death will take an effect on the remaining housewives who must now find Edie's 15-year-old son Travers to inform him about his mother's death. The housewives are set for a road trip that turns out to be a good bonding experience.
Meanwhile, Neal McDonough who plays Edie's psychotic husband Dave Williams dished out on the episode, saying "I had to do something nasty to my wife in the show. It was hard for me because Nic played my wife all year and she has become such a great friend." He added, "I go hunting in the woods and I'm not hunting for deer. (It's) a little WWE."
