Susan and Mike had a son, M.J., and tied the knot in Season 3, but their happiness was short-lived. When Desperate Housewives jumped forward five years, the two split after being involved in a car crash that killed two people. They eventually divorced and dated new characters, including Jackson Braddock (Gale Harold) and Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany). The two later reconciled and remarried. Sadly, in Season 8, Mike was gunned down by a loan shark while trying to protect Susan.
