Singer and actor John Barrowman made his hotly-anticipated debut on Desperate Housewives this Sunday.
Due to be screened in the UK next month, the episode will show theatre star John taking on the role of evil Patrick Logan, the ex-boyfriend of Wisteria Lane newcomer Angie Bolen.
In the first of six episodes he's filmed for the show, John's character murders the neighbour of Angie's mother in a bid to cover his tracks in the hunt for his ex.
Patrick's arrival in Wisteria Lane is building up to the climax of Angie's storyline, which will pave the way for actress Drea De Matteo's exit from the show in May.
And creator Marc Cherry has promised her departure will be an "explosive finale".
"All the mysterious parts of her past will be revealed," he says.
