Desperate Housewives is over. For longtime fans of the ABC comedy-drama, the two-hour finale flew by.
The first half concluded the preposterous murder trial against Bree (Marcia Cross). It was sad to see Bree led off to the death chamber manacled and in an unflattering orange jumper. Am I kidding? As narrator Mary Alice would say: Yesssssss …
The second half saw the death of one of the best-loved residents of Wisteria Lane, plus a wedding and a birth. If you're at all up on the season you know who did what of which. In other words, it was sweet, it was pat, it was all a bit anticlimactic – but why wouldn't it be after all this time?
Here are some moments – none of them spoilers – that made the farewell classically Desperate.

GRANTED: Nicole Kidman, 37, won her request for restraining orders against two freelance photographers Thursday after saying she had been a virtual prisoner in her Sydney home and feared for her safety because of them. The request followed the discovery of an electronic listening device outside her residence. Jamie Fawcett, 43, and Ben McDonald, 32, were ordered not to approach Kidman at her home or go within 60 ft. of her harbor-side home. Kidman said in a statement that she was grateful the court had granted the orders because she had been afraid to leave her home, reports the Associated Press.
