Devious Maids Season 4 Episode 7 Review: Blood, Sweat and Smears

at .  Updated at .

Devious Maids is dropping bombshells left and right.

Devious Maids Season 4 Episode 7 revealed that not only is Spence not Tucker's father, but Carmen's new boy toy is spilling to Dani everything about her birth father.

We also had Zoila imagining Adrian during a makeout session with Kyle, and Marisol hooking up with Jesse again.

The best part of the episode though, had to be Evelyn moving back in with Adrian only to bring her boyfriend James with her as a form of revenge. 

You see my husband, a horse's ass named Adrian.


There is a lot that happened, but the best part of this episode (Yes, there were two best parts. Deal with it!), was the blooming friendship between Adrian and Zoila. 

Zoila is still dealing with too much, but Adrian was a pleasant surprise. They need to get together every week to talk about their problems, or at least after she figures out her daydreams of him.

Adrian and Zoila would be interesting as friends, but anything more would be going overboard. Sometimes women and men can be friends without anything more happening. 

Zoila and Genevieve patching up their friendship was unexpected but a long time coming. They aren't boss/employee anymore, but that might be the best part.

Their friendship needs to heal, and taking it slow might be the best way to do that.

As for Kyle, things are too good to be true right now. I am waiting for his cult past to catch up with him. Or maybe Zoila's real job?

Either of the two will stir something up, and at this point I don't know what I want to happen there. 

Kyle isn't anything special to Zoila yet, but I wouldn't mind him sticking around. 

Is that how your mother does it?


Marisol once again made a decision that might not be as clear cut as she thought in the moment.

Peter and her might not be in the best place right now, but sleeping with someone else isn't the way to go.

Even though this Jesse/Marisol reunion was obvious from the start, I don't see how this could work for them. They started it up again through cheating, and that never ends well.

Jesse would have been better off strictly helping Rosie figure out what was happening with the circle cult, but that must not have been enough for him.

Marisol is the weak link for me. I want to root for her, but I can't when she makes choices based off of relationships. 

I don't know what she thinks will happen with her and Peter, but cheating is never the answer.

Maybe if Marisol started to help Evelyn more, she might grow out of this funk where she can't decide on her romantic future.

I've always been a lush and you know it.


Rosie has too much to deal with, and now she has this secret on top of it all?

Tucker not being Spence's son might mean that this cult stuff went even farther back than we thought.

I thought this was a recent creation, but this could have started before the show even started. This celebrity aimed Scientology cult is just getting started, but Tucker is the key somehow.

Rosie is getting close to it but, I don't think we will know for sure what Tucker means to all of this, for a while. 

Spence getting stabbed on purpose to save his son was nice, but it still doesn't make him interesting enough.

Rosie trying to save him from prison is noble, but don't we need to care about him ourselves? And if we don't, how much does this story matter to us, really?

He's absolute adorable and so what if he's gay.


Carmen and her new man (whose name I still haven't learned) had a hectic time together.

I am not sure if I am more angry at him for calling Dani, or for Carmen not figuring out that dating a guy who spends so much time on his computer isn't a good idea.

This Dani plot was supposed to die down, but now it's starting back up again. Why? This didn't work the first time around, so how will this play out better?

This guy from Carmen's past will probably come around and make it even worse. We didn't find out too much about him. That means he won't stick around for long if he does appear on the show.

What do you think of this Carmen mess? Are you excited to see Dani back in action again? How much do you still care about Spence and the Tucker of it all?
