Desperate Housewives - Season 1, Episode 23 - Rotten Tomatoes

One Wonderful Day


Episode Info

Using her unwanted pregnancy as a bargaining chip, Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) sets up several conditions before agreeing to help Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) reduce his prison time -- but it looks like all bets are off when Carlos finally learns about Gabby's affair with John (Jesse Metcalfe). Armed with all the facts pertaining to his mother's suicide -- not to mention a deadly weapon -- a vengeful Zach (Cody Kasch) takes Susan (Teri Hatcher) hostage. Lynette's (Felicity Huffman) hubby, Tom (Doug Savant), intends to extract full retribution for her getting him fired. Bree (Marcia Cross) still hasn't figured out why Rex's (Steven Culp) health has taken a turn for the worse (the "reason" does not appear in this episode). And in anticipation of things to come, new neighbor Betty Applewhite (Alfre Woodard) already shows signs of having dark secrets of her own when she shuns a friendly welcoming visit from Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan). This ironically titled cliffhanger was the final episode of Desperate Housewives' first season.
