There is divorcée Susan Mayer, ever-looking for real love in all of the wrong places and agonizing on the behavior of Julie (Andrea Bowen) her daughter. There is Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), who every day of her life has kicked herself over her choice to stop her corporate career to care for her extremely competitive husband, Tom (Doug Savant), and her irritating young children. There is Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross), the totally perfect, control-freak homemaker who ultimately drove her husband, Rex (Steven Culp), to court divorce and her son, Andrew (Shawn Pyfrom), in a malicious misanthropy. There was ex- model Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria), who regardless of having been married into luxury and money couldn't stop herself from fooling around with teenaged gardener John (Jesse Metcalfe). Although her controlling husband, Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira), had not been aware about her infidelity, he'd his suspicions that she was much less than truthful. Prone to excessive displays of machismo, he took many measures to maintain marriage.
Weaving in and out the proceedings was the oft-divorced Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan), with whom Susan competed on with for the affections of allegedly widowed plumber Mike Delfino (James Denton). The sexual intrigues of Wisteria Lane were augmented (within the first season at the least) from the mysterious behavior of Mary Alice's husband, Paul (Mark Moses) -- such as digging up the backyard children's pool in the dead of night -- as well as the strange emotional bursts of their besieged, unstable son, Zach (Cody Kasch).
