Devious Maids Review: Blown Cover

at . Comments

Like always, Devious Maids left me wanting more with "Taking a Message."

Surprisingly, the installment started out with Marisol and Rosie on ends and confronting one another about the lies they’ve both been hiding. We quickly moved to two days before to find out all that led up to the altercation.

So, what all happened? Let’s break it down...

Marisol's Cover

In last week’s review, I questioned how long Marisol would be able to keep her identity a secret. This week, her cover was blown by a former student. Marisol was quick to tell the girl that she was mistaken; however, Rosie was far from convinced.

Rosie did her research and found out that the girl at the grocery store was right: Marisol was actually Professor Suarez. When Rosie confronted Marisol, the torn mother came clean and told her everything from simply trying to help her son to trying to find out Flora’s murderer.

Rosie was too shocked and didn’t care for another word Marisol had to say. As she stormed off, she left her phone behind. This came in handy for Marisol when Rosie later threatened to tell the girls about who Marisol really was.

Just in the nick of time, Rosie decided that she wouldn’t say anything at all because she didn’t want her secret about Spence to be revealed.

Meanwhile, Carmen and Sam clashed over their relationship when the former wasn’t too cool with Sam’s nonexistent ambition. Sam then quit and told her that he wanted to do much more and that she was his ambition.

I was really starting to like these two together and am wondering where exactly he’s going and when he’ll be back already.

Elsewhere, Valentina found out about Remi’s drug problem and reached out to Zoila for help. Zoila called Remi’s dad and Remi was shipped off to rehab.

I have a feeling that it’s going to take awhile for Remi to forgive Valentina for breaking her promise of not telling. It’s a good thing she did, though, because dragged out drug stories are boring and I want to see Valentina still trying to help at Remi’s side.

Other Thoughts:

  • I loved the final touching scene between Marisol and Rosie. They both share a special bond with protecting their sons. Most importantly, Marisol now has someone else on her side. Finally!
  • I also loved that the girls pulled together funds for Marisol when they were all under the impression that she really needed help after losing her job at the Powell’s.
  • Did you know that we are more than halfway through the season already? Who’s at the top of your list of who killed Flora? Don’t forget to check out our Devious Maids quotes section.

Growing up, I watched my fair share of soaps. From Days of Our Lives to Passions, I’ve really missed the craziness and drama that soaps bring. Thank goodness for the maids and their seemingly chaotic lives.

Love this show. Funny, entertaining, something to look forward to.


Okay I think we all know what is going on - taking characters out especially big budget ones like Genevievehas NOTHING to do with storylines - they try to make it but it is about saving money. I understand but Genevieve is hillarious and she and Zoila and Valentina have a great bond. the actress who plays Genevieve is very special; she has the it quality. Even though she has the goody goody Krystal Carrington role Genevieve is really interesting to watch each week I truly wish they would stop cutting her out. cut the boring Michael and his trophy wife - they are the most boring and useless. Now Remi will be out an episode or two and undoubted Michael and his trophy wife will miss a few; Adrian is due to miss one as well but I have no idea why write out Genevieve now for two episodes - I think in fairness they should pay the actress double for her role last week. Unfair to the fans too. I think it would be brilliant if they showed Genevieve trying different jobs ie. teaching an exercise class using the pilates chair, maybe dealing with her money woes by watching reruns of All My Children and eating celery sticks (Genevieve is played by I am pretty sure that actress from All My Children who is really famous on daytime tv) She could create the Genevieve Shuffle etc. lol it is clear they are trying to save money as they have written out Evelyn, Spence and all before. If they want the beefcake for ratings they need I guess more Remi, spence and that guy having the affair with Peri. for drama okay they have Marisol. For deviousness Carmen. For hillarity Zoila and Genevieve.
