Lifetime's "Devious Maids" has been building to a major reveal in its season finale, and to understand who killed Flora and why, Lifetime is re-airing the entire season Sunday (Sept. 22) in advance of the finale. The marathon starts at 10 a.m. Et.
The show will end as it began -- at a black-tie pool party at the Powells.
In the pilot, a maid, Flora (Paula Garces), was fatally stabbed. She staggered out to the party, and collapsed into the pool, her blood billowing about her.
A young cater waiter was immediately arrested, which made sense considering all the evidence pointed to him knifing her. But his mother, Marisol (Ana Ortiz), was so certain of her son's innocence that she gave up her job as a college professor and went undercover as a maid.
Marisol was relentless in her pursuit of the truth to free her son. She never really did »
Did Marc Cherry really just kill off Taylor?
If that weren't surprising enough, it appears that Philippe (Stephen Collins) killed Flora, the maid.
Given that people have appeared dead and were not, and that the season finale, which creator Cherry promises will tie up all loose ends, airs in a week, we can't be certain of either.
What we do know is: Philippe is evil, Rosie is reunited with her son, Zoila uses her manipulative ways to protect her daughter and Evelyn finally has enough.
A hired killer, doing Philippe's bidding, was supposed to whack Marisol (Ana Ortiz). Marisol was fleeing the Stoppards' home after Michael (Brett Cullen) warned her that Philippe figured out who she really is: the mother of the young man falsely accused of killing Flora, »
Marisol (Ana Ortiz) has never bothered to hide her intelligence. The other maids are street smart, but she's book smart, not surprising considering she is a college professor posing as a maid to exonerate her son, Eddie, held for murdering Flora, a maid.
Taylor and Michael Stappord (Brianna Brown and Brett Cullen) independently realize that Marisol's behavior should be monitored. Marisol arranges to have Eddie's lawyer and Remi (Drew Van Acker), who had impregnated Flora, arrive at the Stappords' home at the same time.
Recently, the series has spotlighted how the employers will often talk to their friends and lovers as if »
As the first season of "Devious Maids" builds toward the end, a major clue about who was involved with Flora, the murdered maid, is dropped in Sunday's (Aug. 25) episode.
And Olivia, (Valerie Mahaffey), Michael's first wife, hangs herself from the tree in front of Michael and Taylor's (Brett Cullen, Brianna Brown) house during their dinner party. Not quite the second course they were expecting after announcing that Taylor is pregnant.
Another major story line has Remi Delatour (Drew Van Acker) returning from rehab. Despite Valentina's (Edy Ganem) worry that he will blame her for being sent there when his massive cocaine habit resurfaced, he appears as in love with her as she's always been with him.
Remi is one of the big surprises of the episode. Not just because he kept his »
Does any character on "Devious Maids" understand boundaries?
Of course not! And that is why it's so much fun.
If we wanted real life, we would turn off the TV. But it's a fair chance in real life no one is polishing our Rolls Royce, wearing couture gowns to dinner or accompanying us to assist in the ever-so-difficult chore of selecting vegetables at the market.
The third episode does not disappoint. Each character is only more of what he or she was in the pilot and second episode. So far, only Genevieve (Susan Lucci) is proving truly good, but she is ridiculous, which works so well on her.
From the beginning, we knew Marisol (Ana Ortiz) was different, not a real maid. She's too confident. That's not a dis to the other maids, as no one is exactly a shrinking violet, but there is a level of subservience in the »
A German librarian has written a book on how The Simpsons has changed the way gay people are perceived. I’m always mixed about The Simpsons and its heavy usage of stereotypes, but it hasn’t shied away from repeatedly showing gay people as just part of Springfield’s landscape.
A steel mill has to have the most uncomfortably warm dance floor.
On the other hand, GLAAD is angry with Showtime’s Ray Donovan for its pilot where the Hollywood fixer worked for a star spotted picking up a transgender woman. Despite doing great work with gay, lesbian and bisexual characters, Donovan is part of what GLAAD identifies as part of a bad trend of depicting transgender people as subjects of mockery and disgust. I’m surprised to see House of Lies in the condemnations, my initial impression was that it had a potentially strong transgender storyline with the son. »

David E. Kelley has one of the most singular voices in TV today -- it usually only takes a minute or less to realize you're watching one of his shows, and medical drama "Monday Mornings" is no exception.
Kelley used to be one of the biggest showrunners in network TV. After collecting a boatload of Emmys for "Picket Fences," he went on to create hits in "Chicago Hope," "Ally McBeal" and "The Practice." He also had a few high-profile flops, but it wasn't until the consecutive cancellations of "Boston Legal" and "Harry's Law" -- both victims of their older-skewing demographics -- and a futile attempt to get a "Wonder Woman" pilot off the ground, that it made sense for Kelley to test the waters of cable TV.
Working with TNT seems like the perfect fit for an idiosyncratic showrunner like Kelley. He has a proven ability to draw an audience, »
