Desperate Housewives has been off the air since May, but the Wisteria Lane drama isn’t quite over. No, Nicollette Sheridan hasn’t landed her retrial, but ABC is venturing back to Fairview with the DVD releases of Desperate Housewives: The Complete Eighth and Final Season, as well as Desperate Housewives: The Complete Collection. As usual, the DVDs feature a bevy of extras — featurettes about the show’s deaths and goodbyes and a blooper real, for starters. And then, of course, there’s the deleted scenes, two of which EW has exclusively here as a preview for you.
The first scene is a funny interaction between neurotic queen Bree (Marcia Cross) and detective boyfriend Chuck (Jonathan Cake), after he smells something funny and wants to check the trunk of the car they’re driving to see what could be producing such a bad odor. As you might remember from this past final season, Bree spent much of her time hiding the dead body of Gaby’s (Eva Longoria) abusive stepfather. The situation leads to pretty typical Bree-esque tactics, but in the end, it’s funny. The second scene is a bit more emotionally touching and comes from the series finale — it’s the moment when Susan (Teri Hatcher) tells her girlfriends from the Lane that she’s moving away for good in the wake of Mike’s (James Denton) death. It’s actually hard to believe this moving scene didn’t make the episode.
Both DVD sets are available next Tuesday, Sept. 25, but until then, enjoy two of the deleted scenes from Desperate Housewives: The Complete Eighth and Final Season here now:
