Edie Williams is a fictional character created by television producer and screenwriter Marc Cherry for the ABC television series Desperate Housewives. Nicollette Sheridan portrayed Edie from her debut in the pilot episode of the series until the character's death in the fifth season. Within the series, Edie was one of several residents of the fictitious Wisteria Lane. Edie was a real estate agent, she was married three times. Throughout her time on the series, she had numerous relationships with the ex-husbands or former lovers of other characters. Edie Britt was one of the series' most notable characters. Sheridan's portrayal of the character was acclaimed, leading Edie to be a fan favourite. In 2005, Sheridan was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress; the character Edie Britt was a series regular for the first 5 seasons, despite being conceived as a recurring character. Actress Nicollette Sheridan, who auditioned for Bree Van de Kamp, one of the series' more prominent roles, was cast in the role in February 2004.
On August 11, Sheridan was announced to have joined the main cast for the series' first season, the thirteenth regular cast member to do so. Despite proving popular with fans and critics, Sheridan's role remained somewhat minimal in the series' first two seasons. Series creator Marc Cherry insisted that Edie served "only as a spoiler to complicate the other women's lives." Although Sheridan thought of Edie as the fifth main housewife—in addition to Susan Mayer, Bree Van De Kamp, Lynette Scavo, Gabrielle Solis—the opening credits only pictured the other four women. Additionally, Cherry shared. However, Marcia Cross' maternity leave caused Bree to be absent in several episodes of the third season. Edie's character was elevated in prominence, providing the fourth concurrent storyline for the episodes. During this time, the character's "layers are peeled away and the character is developed on a deeper level than has been explored." Despite Cross' return, Edie maintained a more important role throughout seasons four and five until the character's death.
In February 2009, it was announced that Sheridan would be leaving the show following her character's death, which would involve a car accident and electrical wire. Cherry had confirmed the death of several fan favorites at the beginning of the series' fifth season in September 2008. Rumors of on-set problems with Sheridan and her squabbles with Cherry led to her departure. Sheridan commented that killing Edie "was a risky decision that could have devastating ramifications," and admitted to feeling ignored by Cherry while on the series. Cherry alleges; the series saved an estimated $100,000 to $200,000 per episode without the cost of Sheridan's salary. In April 2010, Sheridan filed a lawsuit against Cherry, alleging wrongful dismissal and assault and battery, among five other counts; the following June, Sheridan filed an amended claim, clarifying that the alleged assault was a "light tap," but reaffirmed her stance that her contract was wrongfully terminated. On August 7, 2011, after the announcement that Desperate Housewives would be concluding at the end of its 8th season, Marc Cherry hinted that he may ask Nicollette Sheridan back for the series finale, "to pay homage to everyone, on the show", including Edie and without addressing Sheridan's lawsuit.
However, while being interviewed on NBC's Today the following day, the actress denied her comeback on Wisteria Lane, saying "That's news to me. I had an amazing time playing that character. I loved her dearly, but they killed her! She's dead." Edie led a troubled childhood, since her mother, Ilene Britt, was an alcoholic who served time in jail because of related shoplifting charges. A court, therefore appointed Edie a social worker by the name of Mrs. Muntz, sort of like a nanny for her. Mrs. Muntz was a strict disciplinarian, showed Edie no mercy; this made Edie happy to see her mother once she made parole. As a teenager, Edie would spent her time with the "freaks" hanging out by the loading docks, where she would smoke with them. Edie was introduced as a serial divorcée, with two marriages behind her at the beginning of the show. Martha Huber tells Susan that she will be babysitting Edie's son, although he does not appear until season 3. Edie and Susan Mayer are attracted to new neighbor Mike Delfino, creating tension between them which culminates in Susan accidentally burning Edie's house down.
Edie is upset when Martha is murdered, proves to be the only Wisteria Lane resident who wants to give her a proper burial. Susan admits to Edie that she burned her house down and Edie uses Susan's guilt to join the housewives' poker group. Edie continues to hit on Mike but he's more interested in Susan. Edie is upset when Mike move in together. Edie tries to get the women to convince Susan that Mike is bad for her, but Susan is sure he's the one. Susan finds out her ex-husband, Karl Mayer, cheated on her with Edie while they were married. In the show's second season, Edie starts dating Susan's ex-husband.

Moses Lake, Washington
Moses Lake is a city in Grant County, United States. The population was 20,366 as of the 2010 census. Moses Lake is the largest city in Grant County; the city anchors the Moses Lake Micropolitan area, which includes all of Grant County, is part of the Moses Lake-Othello combined statistical area. Moses Lake, on which the city lies, is made up of three main arms over 18 miles long and up to one mile wide, it is the largest natural body of fresh water in Grant County and has over 120 miles of shoreline covering 6,500 acres. Before it was dammed in the early 1900s and incorporated into the Columbia Basin Project, Moses Lake was a smaller shallow lake. To the south of the town is the Potholes Reservoir and the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge that has a number of seep lakes and vast amounts of migratory birds and other fauna natural to the area. Before the construction of Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River in 1941 and Moses Lake Army Air Base in 1942 the area was barren. Native Americans knew the area as Houaph.
Chief Moses was leader of the Sinkiuse tribe from 1859 to 1899, was forced to negotiate with white settlers who began to settle in the area in the 1880s. Under pressure from the government, Chief Moses traded the Columbia Basin land for a reservation that stretched from Lake Chelan north to the Canada–US border; the government traded again for what is now the Colville Indian Reservation. The new settlers named the lake in honor of Chief Moses; the city was named Neppel, after a town in Germany where one of the original settlers had lived. The first settlers established fisheries and farms — some of the first exported items were carp and fruit — but irrigation attempts failed and settlers left at about the same rate as they came; when the town was incorporated and renamed Moses Lake in 1938, the population was estimated at 302 people. Arrival of the air base in 1942 and irrigation water pumped from Grand Coulee Dam in 1955 offered newcomers a reason and a way to settle in an area that had little to offer other than good fishing and a place to water sheep and cattle.
Moses Lake was transformed into a hub for a vast region where transportation and recreation came together. The air base was built to train World War II pilots to fly the P-38 Lightning and B-17 Flying Fortress, two planes that were essential to the war effort; the base was closed after the war ended, but reopened in 1948 as a U. S. Air Force base and test area for Boeing’s B-47 Stratojet and B-50 Superfortress; the B-47 tests led to development of modern commercial jetliners still used today. Fighter jets were stationed there to protect Grand Coulee Dam to the north and the Hanford site to the south. Boeing still uses the airport as a evaluation facility for its aircraft. Japan Airlines used the airport as a training area from November 1968 until March 2009; the old air base is now owned by the Port of Moses Lake and is home to Grant County International Airport, Big Bend Community College and several businesses. Farmers, had developed new methods to irrigate water from the lake and from the Columbia River and began planting expansive irrigated acreage.
When the Columbia Basin Project was completed in the mid-1950's, farms expanded by thousands of acres, growing potatoes, onions and sugar beets. In little more than a decade, Moses Lake’s population grew from 300 to 2,679 in 1950. Today, the population is 21,419. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 18.75 square miles, of which, 15.75 square miles is land and 3.00 square miles is water.
