In a recent TV Line interview with hunky Mike Delfino, (James Denton), we get some hints into the dark finale for this season, and a healthy dose of humorous anecdotes that we have come to expect from the show.
When we last left our housewives, Susan Delfino (Teri Hatcher) was in dire need of a kidney thanks to a stampede caused by the villain of Wisteria Lane, Paul Young. As if losing one kidney wasn't unfortunate enough, poor Susan has a deformed remaining kidney that won't last. In the meantime, Susan sits in dialysis patiently waiting for a new kidney, which won't be coming for about two or three years. The question on everyone's mind: Will Susan last that long?
True to "Bucket List" form, Denton reveals that Susan will decide to live her life to the fullest during upcoming episodes, embracing life and all of its offerings. One particularly funny (as yet unaired) scene that Denton references is Mike and Susan being caught in the act during a Civil War reenactment.
According to Denton, it looks like Susan is going to pull through. Perhaps the solution will be revealed during May sweeps week or will be incorporated into the season finale. Either way, it's a relief to know that Susan is expected to live. Naturally, with anything "Desperate Housewives," there is going to be a twist. When talking about the season finale, Denton says, "I thought they solved it very well....So yeah, they found a nice, dark, interesting way to come up with a kidney."
While the jury is still out on exactly how the solution to the kidney dilemma could be conveyed as "dark," this writer speculates that the kidney will most likely come from Paul Young or his son, Zach--two people no one really likes. How exactly, is unclear, but it sure would give us all something to talk about around the water cooler over the summer.
