Devious Maids Review: What a Mess

at . Comments

Devious Maids took a break last Sunday, but returned last night with yet another strong episode that kept the maids as busy as ever with their seemingly messy lives.

While “Hanging the Drapes”  left off with Olivia attempting suicide, we learned in "Cleaning Out the Closet" that Olivia was still alive and recovering at the hospital. Moreover, Marisol was caught eavesdropping by Taylor while Michael was on a call.

Genevieve Grows Closer

Elsewhere, Rosie cleaned up a mess for Peri when she hit a jogger while driving and didn't bother to find out if he was okay. Thank goodness for Rosie, as she checked on the man and called the police. Rosie realized that Peri was an entirely awful person and said she was completely done with her. She would stay for Spence and the baby, but that would be it. 

While Rosie told Spence that she wanted him to leave his wife and for them to be together, Peri strived to make it up to Rosie by trying to fly to Mexico to bring back her son. I am betting it will be easier said than done for Peri and I wonder if her intention will be enough for Rosie's forgiveness.

Meanwhile, Alejandro and Carmen disagreed about his new relationship when Alejandro’s boyfriend wanted to move in. The new beau was helpful and loved to clean. This was exactly what Carmen needed while Odessa was still out.

Unfortunately, Alejandro didn’t care enough about the new guy and asked Carmen to break up with Scott for him. I thought this was totally jerky and had a feeling that Scott messing up a room in Alejandro’s home was just the beginning of his revenge. Scott went straight to a gossip magazine and Alejandro’s secret will soon be out.

As Philippe and Genevieve grew closer, Zoila’s distaste became more evident with every scene. Rightfully so, Philippe hadn’t changed a bit and I can’t help but wonder why Genevieve is so unbelievably needy. I think it’d be interesting to see her without a man by her side just for a moment.

Regardless of Remi punching his dad and even Zoila’s disapproval, Genevieve and Philippe are engaged.

Other Thoughts:

  • A commenter mentioned recently that Philippe could possibly be Flora’s murderer if Remi got Flora pregnant. This was exactly what the writers were hinting. What do you think Remi whispered to his dad? Is Philippe Michael’s client?
  • Also, Michael asked Taylor to keep a closer eye on Marisa. Something tells me if push came to shove, Taylor might side with Marisol.
  • I know that Zoila means well, and she is mostly right. However, sometimes her demeanor of knowing it all really bothers me. It just seems like she is constantly telling others what to do.
  • Did you miss Adrian and Evelyn? I did.

I actually think it will Phillipe who was the father. Love the show's soapiness and of course the maids are some of the best characters this network. Of course Alejandro will be outed somehow.


More and more, Alejandro is such a shallow and self-absorbed MORON!!!!! Give me Odessa (who is actually now growing on me) over Alejandro any day...and that's saying a lot!!!!! And, Alejandro is not even that good-looking. That Scott dude is WAY MORE appealing-looking than Alejandro. Alejandro aka JERK!!!!!!


christina tran, no offence, but this was more of a recap than a review. we all saw the episode, there's no need to tell us what happened all over again.


@GrimmFan#10 - Devious Maids has already been renewed for Season 2! For more information, check out this link:


Alexjandros was stupid to think this guy was just going to go away because he had his maid them him to go. I can see Alexjandros and Carmen becoming fast friends and yes his beard. Remi's dad is a jerk and I think he is the killer. Michael is a lawyer and he is going to protect his client. Michael still loves his ex wife and sadly Taylor is the new model. I don't think Michael really loves her. I really like this show. Have they said anything about season 2 yet?


I used to be smitten with Halle Berry until she pulled a 'Peri' years ago. I hope that Rosie ends up with Spence and he gets a chance to rub it in her face. I still think the family member that was reluctant to let Marisol see the grandmother had something to do with Flora's death. This series is very interesting...along with the hot ladies of course.


i think Carmen will become Alejandros beard


Good call commenter – didn’t see the Phillippe murder connection. I never saw Remi as a believable murder suspect. Marisol is taking a lot of chances to save her clueless son and hopefully she will have an ally if Michael decides to harm Marisol or place her in harm’s way. I don’t trust him. He likes his new trophy wife, however he still loves Olivia. I wouldn’t want to be in Taylor’s shoes. She’s right – there are 3 people in that marriage.
I wonder how Alejandro is going to handle being outed by his ex-boyfriend. He should have known better than to treat that guy in such a disrespectful manner. He didn’t even have the guts to break up with him to his face. He has shown himself to be too self absorbed on more than one occasion.
The highlight of this week’s episode for me was the infamous Mrs. Spence – wow – what an awful, awful person. She is truly unreal – she left that guy on the side of the road to die so she could protect her acting career. Rosie gave her the words she deserves, but I actually think she may take the effort to bring Rosie’s son home and Rosie’s life with Mr. Spence will be put on hold once again.
