If there’s one thing we’ve learned from “Desperate Housewives” this season, guns don’t kill in Fairview.
In Sunday’s (March 7) episode, Beth Young (played by Emily Bergl) was turned away a second time by Paul (played by Mark Moses) and disowned by her jailed mother, Felicia (Harriet Sansom Harris).
She ended up being a donor match for Susan (Teri Hatcher) and it seemed she felt that would give her life some meaning. But, Bree (Marcia Cross) is also a match. And as Susan’s closer friend and similarly in need of meaning in her life, Bree got dibs on being the donor.
In a strange scene, Beth entered an ER, convinced the nurse to take her completed donor application and then shot herself in the head. In an attempt to throw the audience off, Bergl tweeted last night that she had no idea how her character would end and later admitted that she did know, but wanted to offset the spoiler in ABC’s promo.
“Just got back from NY and about to watch ‘Desperate Housewives,'” Bergl tweeted on Sunday. “We DID shoot 3 endings but they were different versions of how I offed myself.”
Later she added, “BUT this is NOT the last of Beth I promise.”
We guess it pays to shoot yourself in an emergency room, because that gun to the head was pretty convincing to us. That explains why she insisted on the ER person taking her forms and didn’t just go down to the donor floor!
