Look Into Their Eyes and You See What They Know
Season 5 | Episode 19 | Aired 04/19/09
Edie's friends tell Travers that his mother is dead, but he is unmoved, saying she never even tried to raise him. Mrs. McCluskey insists his mother did love him and that she told her, "If he was going to grow up normal, he needed to get away from me. I love him enough to let him hate me."
Travers thanks the women but suggests they know best what to do with Edie's ashes. Before they scatter the ashes in their front yards, Lynette suggests they each say one word that sums Edie up. "Sexy," says Gabrielle. "Perceptive," says Bree. "Strong," is the word Lynette chooses. "Beautiful," says Karen. "I need four words," Susan says. "One of a kind."
She says, 'It's not hard to die when you know you have lived," Its chilling when the voiceover comes from Edie rather than Mary Alice. "And I did. Oh, I did."
