Exclusive: 'Housewives' pulls a FlashForward

Posted on

Desperate-Housewives_lDesperate Housewives is going back to the future, but this time it’s just temporary.

And imaginary.

An early January episode — the first following the Dec. 6 plane crash cliffhanger — will find the housewives pondering numerous “What If” scenarios.

Example: What if the plummeting jetliner had killed Susan instead of [sorry, too spoilery].

Two Wisterians featured prominently in the alternate reality sequences will be Gaby and Carlos’ youngest daughter, Celia, and Mike and Susan’s son, MJ. I know this because DH is currently casting thirtysomething versions of both characters.

Memo to Marc Cherry. Drop the plane on Julie. Trust me, everyone’s futures would be much brighter (mine included!)
