desperate housewives previe 'Desperate Housewives': Susan's weighty, Gabby's eighty?Just what is happening on “Desperate Housewives” when we come back from the holiday hiatus?

Don’t worry, we won’t be spoiling you as to who went to the Big Wisteria Lane in the Sky.

We do know that the next episode is titled “If…” and, according to the ABC press release, “the residents of Wisteria Lane reflect on what their lives might have been had they made different choices.”

Apparently in Susan’s alternate future she’s put on a little weight and apparently Gabby has become a witch? We don’t know why Gabby looks so old and haggard. Even the season when Carlos was blind and they had to make Eva Longoria Parker look tired and unkempt, she still looked all cute so we aren’t sure why she suddenly looks like a refugee from “Eastwick.”

Is the daughter whose hair Gabby is brushing Juanita or Celia? We’re guessing Juanita, the resemblance is better. Plus we don’t know whether Celia escaped the path of the plane or not. That would explain Gabby’s haggard looks.

“Desperate Housewives” is one of the first shows back from hiatus, returning to ABC this Sunday, Jan. 3.
