Bree Van de Kamp is one of the main protagonists and titular characters of Desperate Housewives. A neurotic and perfectionist homemaker, Bree's strong resolve and proper demeanor have been her greatest strengths and the source of nearly all her personal trouble. Coined as "Martha Stewart-on-steroids", she spent years working to become the perfect wife and mother and her attempt to maintain this plastic existence, despite various obstacles such as widowhood, divorce, and alcoholism hindering her, has become her greatest asset.

Finishing the Hat

Desperate Housewives 8x23.png

The lives of the Wisteria Lane residents are to be forever changed in the emotional series finale, as Renee's wedding approaches, and Gabrielle receives a big promotion that prompts her to be more neglectful towards Carlos, thus mirroring the early years of their marriage - with reversed roles. Lynette is too offered a big job opportunity herself when old friend Katherine Mayfair returns from France - an opportunity that could end Lynette's chances of reconciling with Tom. Meanwhile, Julie goes into labor at the most inopportune time, Bree tries to distance herself from Trip Weston, and Mrs. McCluskey prepares to move to a different neighborhood in the great beyond.
