Meanwhile, Back on Wisteria Lane ...

The Desperate Housewives are back tomorrow night in their fifth season premiere, but now its five years in the future. What does this mean for the ladies of Fairfield? (Insert spoiler warning here.)

Well, Susan (Teri Hatcher) has divorced Mike (James Denton), and is now sacking up with a mystery guy (Queer as Folk's Gale Harold). Bree (Marcia Cross), who is back with Orson (Kyle MacLachlan), is now a successful Martha Stewart-type homemaker mogul, with her gay son Andrew (Shawn Pyfrom) and Katherine (Dana Delany) on her payroll. Lynette (Felicity Huffman) must deal with her now teenage delinquent sons as well as the midlife crisis of hubby Tom (Doug Savant). Glam Gabrielle (Eva Longoria Parker) has changed the most; she is now a frumpy mother of two, while Carlos (Ricardo Chavira) is still blind. And Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) is back, with a new husband (Neal McDonough), who is reportedly tied in to the season's big mystery, which also involves Mrs. McCluskey (recent Emmy winner Kathryn Joosten) and her sister, played by the one and only Lily Tomlin (fans of The West Wing will get the inside joke there). Oh, and Wisteria's resident gay couple, Bob and Lee (Tuc Watkins and Kevin Rahm) are back as well, and they now have a daughter.

If all of that soapy goodness has you lost, then you can catch up with ABC's "Starter Kit" and/or this preview clip.
