SPOILER ALERT: We’re guessing there are a few of you out there who haven’t yet watched last night’s highly anticipated grocery-store-shootout episode of Desperate Housewives… so, out of respect for you (and, you know, to avoid your angry comments), we’re talking about the victims after the jump. Click the link if you dare!

So, Nora (Kiersten Warren, pictured) died last night. Who didn’t seethat coming? Viewers hated her so much, I’m surprised she wasn’t shot moretimes — maybe once per boob, knee sock, and pigtail. Then again, thatdying scene was pretty disgusting as it was. The rest of the hostagesacted completely indifferent to Nora’s situation, inspiring themultitalented Lynette to play doctor, rearranging Nora’s various organsat will before the annoying little pet character finally submitted. Thewhole scene was much goopier and gorier than I expected. As I gazedinto Nora’s body cavity, I imagined what it would feel like to be shotpoint-blank in the chest, which is always a great time. And I likedLynette’s “I’m going to dab her blood on my own chin so we can put thisin the promos” moment. So sneaky.

The downside: Crazy Carolyn Bigsby also died. She pretty much hadto, because her character probably would have been even less amusing inprison. Still, I’m a little miffed. I’d been waiting all season forAunt Jackie to bring the funny, and now she’s gone. (Oh, well — it’snot like I can’t watch Roseanne 30 times a day.)

Did the bloodbath please you, peaceful PopWatchers? Who would you rather have seen annihilated?
