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.

There's been a huge sigh of relief on Wisteria Lane.
A judge on Tuesday dismissed the most sensational charge in Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination suit – a battery charge against producer Marc Cherry for allegedly slapping her in the head during an argument.
The jury in Los Angeles must still consider whether the actress, 48, was fired from ABC's Desperate Housewives in retaliation for complaining about the incident.
Superior Court judge Elizabeth White said there was not enough evidence to support the battery charge, the Los Angeles Times reports.

After a dispute about her lines, Nicollette Sheridan says that Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry settled the argument in a shocking way.
He hit her with his open hand, she testified in court Thursday.
"It was a nice wallop to my head," the actress said in her multimillion-dollar wrongful termination trial in a Los Angeles courtroom.
Asked by her lawyer if she was willing to demonstrate in court for him, she said, "I don't want to hurt you."
