She added that she is looking forward to seeing how the relationship between Lynette and Tom (Doug Savant) is explored.
"I think because it's year eight, all bets are off," she said. "If it was going to be eight and nine, I think you'd have to see them together at the end of the year, because what else are you going to do?
"So I hope they're going to explore it with a little more courage and breadth than if we were going to have [season] nine."
"What if she got a girlfriend?" she said. "Why not? I think that would be kind of cool. And if Tom got a boyfriend, you'd be like, 'What?' But if Lynette got a girlfriend and then changed her mind and went back, I think that'd be okay."
