Devious Maids Season 1 Finale: Grade It!

Sep 23 2013, 12:58pm CDT | by TV Line

Devious Maids‘ first season is in the books, and the central question of who killed Flora Hernandez has been scrubbed away like a pesky cabernet stain. That’s good news for those of us who feared a Killing-esque arc that would’ve dragged out the mystery for an additional 13 episodes and counteracted the joy of hearing Susan Lucci drop zingers like, “If he wanted to help poor people, why didn’t he just go to Burbank?”

But before you hit our highly scientific (and absolutely definitive) TVLine poll to grade the Lifetime sudser’s Season 1 finale, let’s recap how the action played out:

CARMEN FACES THE MUSIC (CAREER) | Alejandro, desperate to quash percolating gay rumors, makes Carmen an offer she’d be kinda crazy to refuse: Enter into a two-year marriage contract in exchange for a major-label record deal — with a guaranteed second album if the first sells 100,000 copies. Only trouble? Boyfriend Sam’s total freakout, and colleague Odessa’s unexpected pangs of jealousy (seeing how she’s loved her boss from afar for years). Final decision: To be continued… But let’s be honest, Carmen needs more to do than flit around the mansion with a feather duster in Season 2, doesn’t she?

ZOILA MAKES A CONFESSION | Zoila drops the bomb on Genevieve and Valentina that Remi’s headed to the Congo to help doctors vaccinate disadvantaged kids — without so much as an “adios!” But when her daughter interprets his move as a lack of love, Zoila confesses she’s the one who pushed him to leave — and to allow Valentina to pursue fashion school. There’s a predictable rift, but as Zoila heads out to help Marisol solve the Flora case, Valentina secretly packs her bags and cradles a plane ticket. Which has me thinking, if the writers keep Valentina in the wings for the opening half of Season 2, maybe it’ll force them to cook up something more interesting for Judy Reyes’ underutilized caretaker character.

ROSIE LEARNS THE DANGERS OF CELLULAR TECHNOLOGY | Rosie’s son Miguel (who may or may not be trapped in a hypnotic trance) answers mom’s phone and finds her employer Peri on the other end. He carries said phone into the bedroom, where Rosie and “Mr. Spence” (ugh! she’s GOT to drop the “Mr” in that combo!) are pretty much dissolving their secret love — but that’s not what it sounds like to the flighty movie star. Cue final scene of INS workers dragging Rosie off to…jail? deportation? Only the show’s writers know for certain. And there’s Peri, in the distance, savoring her win in this battle. I’m just hoping “Wrath of God Rosie” comes roaring back to win the war next summer!

MARISOL TRIUMPHS (WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM HER FRENEMIES) | When attorney Michael learns that Taylor has lost her baby as the result of last week’s shooting, he spills client Phillipe’s confession to Marisol: Dude raped Flora, then later killed her when he discovered she was pregnant with his son Remi’s baby and the devious maid was using it to try to score a big payday. Marisol’s efforts to get Philippe’s confession on camera — in the midst of his engagement party to Genevieve — go south when Evelyn spots her former charge and has her escorted off the grounds. (“She’s five-foot-six, 120 pounds and vaguely ethnic!” Evelyn tells security.)

Adrian and Evelyn (reunited by their mutual grief for Taylor’s loss) have their own (insane) plan, though, poisoning Philippe then hurling him out the window and into the pool — where he “drowns” instantly. The police question how Philippe could’ve died only seconds after hitting the water, but Rosie, Zoila and Carmen all jump in and confirm the Powells story: Philippe confessed to Flora’s murder, then suicidally hurled himself out the second-story window to his death. Case “solved”! Ridiculous? Yeah. But so what? Marisol’s son is freed! And lunch is served — at least until Rosie is dragged away!
