The third season of Desperate Housewives, an American television series created by Marc Cherry, premiered on September 24, 2006 and concluded on May 20, 2007. The season consisted of 23 episodes and two specials, which aired on September 3, 2006 and April 1, 2007. The series continues to focus on Wisteria Lane residents Susan Mayer, Lynette Scavo, Bree Hodge, Gabrielle Solis, and Edie Britt. Mary Alice Young continues to serve as the series' narrator, with the exception of one episode, "My Husband, the Pig", in which Rex Van de Kamp takes over the narration. The mystery in this season involves Bree's new husband, Orson Hodge.

Ratings for the series fell considerably during season three, with a 22 percent loss of viewership toward the end of the season.[1] Nevertheless, the show maintained its position as a top ten series and became the tenth most-watched program for the 2006-07 American television season,[2] with an average of 17.5 million viewers per episode.

Season three was released on DVD as the six-disc box set Desperate Housewives: The Complete Third Season - The Dirty Laundry Edition in Region 1 by Buena Vista Home Entertainment on September 4, 2007,[3] in Region 4 on October 31, 2006, in Region 2 on November 5, 2006, and in Region 5 on December 4, 2006.[4] The season is also available on the American iTunes Store.[5]

After leaving the episodic writing to his staff during the second season, he returned as a writer as well.[6][7] Michael Edelstein and Tom Spezialy, who served as executive producers for seasons one and two, did not return for the series' third season due to creative differences.[7][8][9] They were replaced by Kevin Murphy and George W. Perkins, both of whom had previously served as co-executive producers in earlier seasons.[10] John Pardee, Joey Murphy, and Chris Black continued to serve as co-executive producers. Larry Shaw and David Grossman, both of whom previously served as producers and directors for the series, were promoted to co-executive producers, with Bob Daily rounding out the team. All but Black, Grossman, Perkins, and Shaw also served as writers for the third season.

Storylines

Season three's main mystery revolves around Bree's new husband, Orson Hodge. At the end of season two, Orson ran over Mike Delfino for reasons unknown at the time. Suspected of cheating on his wife, Alma (who is originally thought to be dead), and killing a woman named Monique Pollier, Orson is placed under constant suspicion from the housewives and some of the other neighbours, especially Mike, who is the main suspect in Monique's murder. To complicate matters, Orson's mother (Gloria Hodge) and Alma come to Wisteria Lane and take matters into their own hands. The housewives are brought together this season to comprehend the mystery and put the pieces of Orson's past together, while trying to sustain their individual lives that are causing them much trouble.

Susan Mayer

Susan Mayer has moved on from Karl, her ex-husband, who is no longer a regular, but a recurring character. Mike Delfino, Susan's love interest, is in a coma after being hit by Orson Hodge (Kyle MacLachlan), and Susan has been dutifully attending to Mike in the hospital. In the hallway of the hospital, Susan meets a man named Ian Hainsworth (Dougray Scott) whose wife, Jane, is in a coma. They have coffee together, and then begin to date and later make love. When Mike wakes up from his coma in the third episode with Edie Britt at his side, he is a peculiar man and he has a darker personality, thinking that this was not an accident. He also has a type of amnesia, and has no recollection of his relationship with Susan. Edie, who continues to hate Susan, takes advantage of Mike's amnesia by convincing Mike that Susan had treated him horribly, and manipulates him into wanting her instead. Mike is later arrested on suspicion of murder; Edie breaks up with him. When Mike has no idea who Susan is, she slowly starts a relationship with Ian, whose wife, Jane, is also in a coma. Susan tries to get Mike back, but he does not remember her, so she goes to Ian instead. Ian allows to help Mike if only Susan does not see him anymore, to which Susan does not agree with. Later, Susan and Ian get engaged, but Ian still thinks Susan is still in love with Mike. Susan tries to help Mike out of the murder case; Ian, jealous of Susan's apparent feelings for Mike, gets Mike out of prison on the condition that she never interacts with Mike again. After Jane dies, Ian and Susan get engaged. Mike tells Susan he wants her back and they share a kiss. Susan realizes she has to choose between Mike and Ian - she chooses Ian. He however, can see her feelings for Mike and he leaves for England and breaks up with her. Susan follows Mike into the woods when she finds out he's left Wisteria Lane. She finds him and they get back together. The two are now engaged. Susan schedules their wedding - which happens to be the same day as Gaby's wedding to the mayor. Bride wars erupt, but Susan realizes that all she wants is to marry Mike, regardless of where or when it is. The night of Gaby's wedding Susan surprised Mike with a small wedding of their own and the two get married.

Lynette Scavo

Lynette Scavo is having a hard time integrating yet another child, Kayla Huntington (Rachel Fox), into the family. Kayla's mother, Nora (Kiersten Warren), had a one-night stand with Tom before Tom and Lynette's marriage, and has forced herself into the family and makes life difficult for the Scavos, especially Lynette. Lynette is desperate to find Nora a man, as she wants her out of the house as much as possible. Therefore, Lynette pairs Nora with Carlos. Nora is killed in a hostage situation at a supermarket while Lynette sits next to her, leaving Tom and Lynette to raise Kayla. During the altercation, Lynette is shot in the arm. Kayla hates Lynette because before Nora died, Nora kept telling Kayla that Lynette was trying to steal her. When Lynette tries to bond with Kayla, Kayla becomes cruel, even ruining Lynette's beloved childhood doll. Not only does Lynette have to deal with Nora and Kayla, she also has to deal with the fact that Tom has opened up a pizzeria, which could get the Scavo family into serious financial trouble. Lynette quits her job to help Tom run his pizzeria. Lynette has to run the restaurant when Tom is out with a back injury. She hires a new manager, Rick, whom she begins to have feelings for. She has dinner with him before she goes home every night. One night the pizzeria gets robbed, and Lynette and Rick get locked in the freezer for the night. Tom then sees security-tape footage of the two in the freezer and begins to get suspicious about their relationship. He takes Rick out for lunch and asks him if he is sleeping with his wife, Rick replies no but Tom still tells him that he has to quit. Rick then tells Lynette that he has feelings for her which forces her to fire him so that nothing happens between them to jeopardise her relationship with Tom. She's deeply unhappy in her marriage with Tom. He tries to trick her into talking about their marital problems with his "friend" who is actually a marriage counselor. At home, Lynette gets into a fight with Tom, and he pushes her off the bed and she hits her head off of the night stand and is taken to the hospital to check for a concussion. At the hospital, they tell Lynette that she probably has lymphoma. After the diagnosis is confirmed, Lynette's mother comes to stay with Lynette to help her while she battles cancer.

Bree Hodge

Bree Hodge and Orson Hodge become engaged in the season premiere, and wed in the second episode of the season. Shortly before departing for her honeymoon, Bree is shocked to see her son, Andrew, featured on a televised special about homeless runaways. She cancels her honeymoon and sets out to find Andrew, but is met with anger and resentment when she discovers him in a soup kitchen. After Bree returns home, Orson realizes how guilt stricken his wife is and tracks down Andrew himself. He succeeds in locating Andrew, buys him lunch, and confesses his identity and motive. Andrew reluctantly returns home the following day and, thanks to Orson's mediation, slowly begins reconciling with Bree. The family decides to attribute Andrew's long absence to attending a Drama Camp.

The big mystery of the season revolves around Orson's past, involving his first wife, Alma, and a murdered woman named Monique Polier. Orson's personal history brings the other housewives together in suspicion. It is slowly revealed that Orson's first wife, a woman named Alma, planned on leaving Orson. How their marriage truly ended is a mystery, but Bree becomes suspicious that Orson killed her. The police find a dead woman's body, believed to be Alma, but eventually discovered to be Orson's mistress, Monique. The discovery of Mike's phone number written on her hand leads the police to become suspicious of Mike and eventually arrest him.

Orson's mother, Gloria, moves in with Orson and Bree around the time that Alma returns, alive and well (she left Orson because of his affair). It is later revealed that Mike's phone number was on Monique's hand because she had plumbing problems. It is also revealed that Gloria killed Monique in "self-defense" after she told Monique to stay away from Orson. Orson is drugged and raped by Alma, who eventually realizes (with some "emotional support" from Orson's mother) that he will never come back to her. Gloria locks Alma in her attic, and begins an attempt to kill Bree. Bree, who has found evidence of Monique's death (a bag of teeth ripped from her mouth), falls off a ladder during her efforts to take a decoy bag of teeth, causing a concussion. Alma escapes the attic, only to fall three stories to her death. Gloria tries to kill Bree, but Andrew comes to the rescue; he left early from the grand opening of Tom's pizza place when Danielle showed up and said she did not have to be with Bree anymore because Gloria came to take care of her. After Andrew rushes home he gets knocked out by Gloria, who tries once again to kill Bree. Orson enters and saves Bree, and Gloria has a stroke, leaving her permanently paralyzed but with full mental capacity. Orson visits her, only in order to let her see him walk out of her door for the final time. Orson also uses a fake suicide note written by Alma and the bag of teeth to exonerate Mike. Bree and Orson finally leave for their honeymoon.

Marcia Cross (Bree) has been absent in the last episodes of the season due to maternity leave. However, in the season finale, Bree returns, and is, to all appearances, pregnant. Bree is faking the pregnancy to cover up the real pregnancy of her daughter, Danielle. We see Bree removing a bag, which was used to make her look pregnant. Danielle, meanwhile is hidden in a remote location. Bree and Orson plan to hide Danielle's pregnancy and purport her future child to be their own.

Gabrielle Solis

Gabrielle Solis and her husband Carlos get divorced early in the season. In the season premiere, their surrogate maid Xiao-Mei (Gwendoline Yeo) is confined to bed rest because of her pregnancy. Gabrielle is her reluctant — and obnoxious — caretaker, threatening Xiao-Mei with deportation to China whenever she is too demanding. Xiao-Mei has the baby in the second episode of the season, but it is revealed that, due to a mix-up, it is not Carlos and Gabrielle's baby, but an African-American baby. Their embryo had been switched with someone else's, and theirs was not conceived by the person to whom it was switched. Xiao-Mei moves into an apartment after giving birth, for which Carlos and Gabrielle paid. During her bitter and unpleasant divorce from Carlos, Gabrielle tries to settle with other men. After the divorce is final, Gabrielle starts mentoring young girls in pageantry with her former personal shopper, Vern. One of the girls, Amy Pearce, has a widower father, Bill, with whom Gabrielle begins a romantic relationship. But soon after starting to date Bill, Gabrielle notices that she has a secret admirer. She suspects the admirer is Carlos trying to sabotage her relationship, although it is later revealed as Zach Young, who is now a billionaire (his grandfather died, leaving Zach his entire estate). Gabrielle becomes disgusted with him, yet when Susan asks Gaby to persuade Zach to get a lawyer for Mike, she agrees to go out on a date with Zach. Zach and Gabrielle become "friends," but when she moves on to other men, he becomes outraged. He begins to sabotage her relationships, with him eventually lying to her about them having sexual intercourse. Carlos reveals the fault, stating that she would have remembered having sex with him (after catching a glimpse of Zach's large penis in the bathroom). Then, Zach proposes to her, but Gabrielle "shows him the door." Shortly thereafter she begins to date Victor Lang, a political run-in for Fairview mayor and they get married. However, Gaby looks for Victor to introduce him to Bree at the reception, sneaks up to a room to find Victor and his father discussing how they got Gaby to marry him; he only wanted to secure the Minority vote. Then they talk about how Victor is the husband and makes all the choices now. Gaby leaves and finds Carlos in a room depressed as well. The two kiss and it is implied that they sleep together.

Edie Britt

Edie Britt is still angry at Susan. After Mike was run over, Edie was always at the hospital and convinces Mike that Susan had treated him horribly. She also makes Mike believe he never loved Susan and that she's been in love with him since she first saw him. Susan goes to see Mike and sees him and Edie having sex on the hospital bed; Susan rushes out. This causes even more tension between her and Susan. Eventually Edie and Mike become involved but the relationship is short lived. After Mike is released from the hospital, he is arrested for Monique's murder and Edie breaks up with him. Edie's 18-year-old nephew, Austin McCann (Josh Henderson), moves in with her at the beginning of the season. Susan's daughter, Julie, begins with a healthy distaste for him but there ends up to be a spark between the two. After sitting through the supermarket hostage situation, they begin to date, much to Susan's displeasure. Edie warns Julie to stay away from Austin but Julie sleeps with Austin anyway. However, unknown to Julie, Austin had an affair with Danielle. Julie has Edie pose as her mother so she can get birth control pills without her mother finding out. Edie's son, Travers, stays for a month, and she asks Carlos to babysit once in a while. They get on well and Edie soon becomes attracted to Carlos, and makes a pass. They begin a relationship, but Edie is worried it is just because of Travers. She hires a lawyer to get joint custody, but Carlos convinces her not to, and re-assures Edie he will be there for her when Travers has to leave. After Travers leaves with his father, Edie would like for Carlos to move in with her. Because Mike and Carlos shared a house, and Mike is marrying Susan, Carlos takes over the lease, and he is renting from Mrs. Simms, who is in a nursing home. Edie visits her at the home, and then tells her that Carlos is an alcoholic, does drugs, and is intending to use her home as a place he can hook up with prostitutes. Mrs. Simms terminates the lease, and her son tells Carlos he is being evicted. Edie offers Carlos a place to stay at her house, but he is suspicious that she was involved. He is angry when he found she manipulated others to get him to move in with her. She then tells him she might be pregnant with his child. After they find that she was not, in fact, pregnant, she suggests that he stay with her and they together try for a baby. She begins taking birth control, because she would not like to have children with him unless he truly loves her. While looking for money in Edie's purse to pay the paper boy, Carlos discovers Edie's birth control pills. At Gaby's wedding, Carlos confronts Edie and tells her he can never trust her again, Edie tries to apologize but is unsuccessful. At the closing scene of the season, Edie is shown with a sealed letter to her "beloved" Carlos, and hangs herself with a scarf.

Mary Alice Young

The spirit of Mary Alice Young continues to watch over the neighborhood and narrates the show. For the sixteenth episode, "My Husband, the Pig", she is temporarily replaced by Bree's deceased husband Rex Van de Kamp (Steven Culp), who returns to the series narrating the episode from a male perspective.

In the episode "Bang", Lynette Scavo has a series of dreams about the last time she talked to Mary Alice, which happened to be moments before she shot herself. Lynette tormented herself over not trying to save Mary Alice. After a hostage situation in which two people were killed and Lynette was injured, she had one final dream of Mary Alice. This time, however, Lynette tried to prevent something bad from happening by asking to help Mary Alice. To which Mary Alice replied that she couldn't, but she could do something. She could enjoy the lovely day that was at hand. Mary Alice, as the narrator, says, "This was the last time Lynette would dream of me, and for her sake, I am grateful."
