Marisol Deering (previously Suarez), also known as Marisol Duarte, is one of the main characters and titular protagonists of Devious Maids. A successful college professor, Marisol starts working undercover as a domestic maid following the tragic murder of maid Flora Hernandez. Marisol's motivation is to release her son from prison, after being incarcerated for Flora's murder, despite being allegedly innocent. Using her wits and determination to make ends meet, Marisol blends in as a house cleaner in the socialite world of Beverly Hills, doing her best to uncover the bloody secrets that the rich and uptrodden hide behind closed doors. She succeeds in freeing her son, and soon finds love in the mysterious Nicholas Deering. She finds herself now living a life of luxury, and having a maid of her own, but things go downhill when she begins to unravel the many secrets her secretive fiancé (later husband) hides from her.

BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

Quote1
I was only six when my mother died, but I didn't cry. When the doctors told me that I couldn't have any children of my own, I nodded, and called an adoption agency. When your father ran off with that waitress, I laughed and said 'good riddance'. My whole life I thought I could handle anything. But I'm not strong enough to lose you.

Marisol Suarez, "Taking Out the Trash"

Little is known about Marisol's origins, family and backstory. She was presumably born in Los Angeles. ("Pilot") Marisol is a very tough and resilliant woman who almost never caves or breaks down when faced with life's hardest challenges. When she was six years old, her mother passed away. As an adult, Marisol married and tried to have a child, only to be told by the doctors that she couldn't. She and her husband then adopted Eddie. At some point, Marisol's husband left her for a waitress, and she was left to raise Eddie on her own. ("Taking Out the Trash") She studied in college, becoming a specialist in Oscar Wilde studies, received a Ph.D. and became a college professor, lecturing in English Literature at the Rhonda Browner-Sherman School of Humanities, where she became the youngest professor in its history to be granted tenure, and also won a prestigious genius grant. ("Taking a Message")

In the beginning of the summer season of 2013, Flora Hernandez, a young maid who was dating Marisol's son, is shockingly murdered at a Beverly Hills social event. Eddie is found, dazed and confused, with the murder weapon in his hand. Marisol is informed by the police that her son has been arrested, and hires Ida Hayes as his defense attorney. Eddie, however, is eventually tried and convicted of the murder, and placed under arrest. The case is closed, but Marisol, convinced of her son's innocence, sets out to discover the truth behind Flora's death. She changes her last name to "Duarte" and decides to work infiltrated as a maid in Beverly Hills, with the alliance and advice of Ida. ("Pilot", "Setting the Table")

You wanna talk about how unfair life is? That's great, 'cause I know all about that! You wanna hear what I've lost? How I've suffered? Of course not. 'Cause to people like you, I'm just the woman who opens the door.

Marisol Suarez, "Pilot"
Marisol 101
Marisol prepares to clean the room where Flora was murdered. ("Pilot")

Marisol attends the burial of Flora Hernandez, watching from a distance. As Flora's friends - Zoila, Valentina, Carmen and Rosie, four maids - leave after the ceremony, Marisol overhears them talking about a secret that Flora was keeping and shared with them, and that might have gotten her killed. One week later, Marisol auditions for a job as live-in maid for the Stappord couple, consisting of elite attorney Michael and his lovely second wife, Taylor. Taylor doesn't respond well to Marisol's attitude and finds it odd that she sounds so sophisticated, but they eventually hire her as a test. Marisol tries to engratiate herself to Taylor by giving her advice on how to deal with the problem of Michael's ex-wife, deranged decorator Olivia Rice, but it is to no avail. She then meets the other maids, and tries to ask them about Flora, but doesn't get much of a response, only that the people she worked for - the Powells - are weird. Marisol also offers to clean the room where Flora was murdered, in the Powell house. There, she meets the creepy Adrian Powell, who was having an affair with the victim. He takes an eerie liking to Marisol. Later, when the Stappords throw a dinner party for Michael's birthday, it is crashed by Olivia, who causes a scene. Marisol is forced to kick her out of the house, and in doing so, Taylor tells her she can work there for as long as she wants to. At the end of the evening, Adrian confides in Marisol that he's sure she's not really a maid, and can't wait to see what she's doing there. Marisol then visits her son in jail, and promises that she's working on getting him out of there. ("Pilot")

Marisol 102
Adrian is fascinated with Marisol... ("Setting the Table")

One morning, Marisol reads an article in the newspaper that states that her son maintains his innocence in regards to Flora's murder. When the other maids join her, Marisol asks them about the Powells, and learns that Flora never said anything good about them. As she leaves, Zoila warns her to stay away from them. However, at a social gathering, Marisol takes the opportunity to approach Evelyn and offer to clean their house. However, Evelyn requests that she ask for Taylor's permission... and the latter declines. Marisol informs Evelyn, and when Adrian finds out, he makes it his mission to get the Latina to work for them. He proceeds to intimidate Taylor, and therefore Marisol is able to go and clean for them. This leads to an intriguing Q&A session between a flirtatious Marisol and Adrian, in which they both ask questions at each other, to get honest answers. Marisol asks what Adrian's relationship to Flora was, and he says that she was his confidant, confessor, muse... and partner in crime. During the interrogation, Marisol finds the letter that Flora wrote before she was killed and skims through it, learning that the maid was raped. However, Adrian snatches it from her before she can properly read it. Marisol meets with her son in jail and asks him about his relationship with Flora. She then tells him about the note, unbeknownst to the fact that Adrian burns it in the fireplace. ("Setting the Table")

Marisol 103
The ladies who lunch. ("Wiping Away the Past")

Marisol goes shopping with Taylor, to prepare for a dinner party, and at the supermarket they run into Olivia. The latter apologizes to Marisol for the way she acted at Michael's birthday party, and Marisol accepts the apology, but urges her to apologize to Taylor as well. However, Olivia refuses to, and reveals that Taylor used to be a prostitute. Later, over drinks, Taylor explains to Marisol how she got into the sex trade business, and Marisol recommends that she tells Michael about Olivia's knowledge before the latter spreads it. Taylor requests that Marisol be by her side when she tells him. When they finally break the news to Michael, he decides that they all should leave to New York, an idea that doesn't please the women. Marisol later tells Michael that she can't move because of personal reasons, and suggests that she talk to Olivia and find out how she discovered the truth and what her intentions are. Later, Marisol stops by Olivia's with the pretext of bringing her some mail, and starts complaining about Taylor, hoping to engratiate herself to Michael's ex-wife. Olivia asks her in for tea, and Marisol tells Olivia that Taylor is terrified that she might tell people the truth, and that the Stappords want to move to New York. She then lies and tells the redhead that Michael is still in love with her and will probably want her back, so it's best for Olivia if they don't move. Olivia decides to write Taylor a letter to let her know she won't tell anyone. She then asks how Olivia found out about Taylor's past, and Olivia reveals that she was told by Evelyn Powell: apparently, Adrian hired Taylor to serve as a "gift" to his friends, a hobby of his... and he also hired Flora. Marisol tells Taylor, who is delighted, and she then asks her boss to explain to her what is going on with Adrian and his prostitutes. Taylor explains that he hires women to seduce his inebriated friends during intimate get-togethers, while the friends have no idea of what is going on, and then he simply disappeares when the time for love-making comes. Marisol is confused, and wonders what Adrian could get out of this... ("Wiping Away the Past")

Marisol 104
It's getting hot in 'herre'. ("Making Your Bed")

Marisol bursts into the office of her son's defense attorney, Ida Hayes, to break the news to her that Flora was working as a prostitute for Adrian Powell, and that during one of her sessions she was raped. Without a note and without credit cards having been used, however, they lack the evidence. Ida, still hopeful, takes the opportunity to comment that she thinks what Marisol is willing to do for her son is extraordinary. Later, Dante Penrose, a local coroner and friend of Adrian's, informs the latter that he will need him to host a gala for the benefit of the disadvantaged. Marisol offers to help, and when she leaves, Dante tells Adrian that he is also fascinated with Marisol. They both express interest in bringing her into their little "hobby", and while Adrian worries that she might be impenetrable, Dante is convinced that he can bend her. Marisol then rummages through Flora's old room and finds a pregnancy test. When Marisol meets with the girls at the park, she asks if Flora was pregnant, and while Zoila is mad at first because she keeps bringing up their dead friend, Rosie can't keep her mouth shut and then they all tell her the truth: Flora was pregnant with a rich man's baby, and she planned to extort him to keep it quiet. They told her it was wrong, but Flora didn't care. Ida retrieves the report on Flora's death, but it states that she wasn't pregnant. However, the report had been revised. Marisol recognizes the coroner as being Adrian's friend Dante, and the two of them realize that they need to get the original copy. At the benefit gala, Marisol purposefully spills a drink on Dante. She takes him to a bedroom and asks for his pants, so that she may remove the stain. She then takes the access key card to the coroner's office from his pants, but when she goes to give them back to the man, he locks the door behind her. He then offers her benefits in exchange for a few moments of pleasure. He comments that it's a little "hot" in there, and she demands that he get out of her way. When he doesn't, she sets the curtains ablaze with a candle, mockingly telling him that it is "hot" indeed. Dante is left to put out the fire while she leaves. Later that night, Marisol breaks into his office using the key card and discovers Flora's original report, which clearly states that she was pregnant at the time of death. She hands the report over to Ida, providing her with motive at last. ("Making Your Bed")

Marisol 105
Evelyn and Marisol talk about their respective sons. ("Taking Out the Trash")

Marisol walks in on Evelyn looking at old family videos featuring a young man. Evelyn looks depressed, and Marisol subtly offers to talk to her, but her kind offer is rudely declined. Meanwhile, Eddie and Ida meet with the A.D.A. to discuss the newfound evidence, the tampered report, but the latter tells them that the coroner maintains that it was a mix-up. Ida argues that it was a cover-up, because Flora was pregnant and that's called motive for murder. Eddie insists that he didn't have motive to kill Flora, but the A.D.A. brings up further new evidence that points otherwise. Ida meets with Marisol and reveals that Eddie proposed marriage to Flora, and she turned him down, so now it seems like he had motive. This proves to be another setback. Marisol meets with her son at the station and confronts him about the proposal and about not having told her. Eddie explains that he knew she'd be against it, and Marisol confirms this. The two of them end up engaging in a fight. Later, Evelyn asks for Marisol's opinion on two men's blouses that she bought, for she means to offer her son one of them. Marisol claims that she didn't know they had a son, and Evelyn explains that Barrett was killed 15 years before. Every year, on his birthday, the only day she and Adrian allow themselves to talk about him, they buy him a gift and discuss what he could have been like, as a coping mechanism. Marisol then confides in her boss that she has a son of her own, and their relationship is rocky. After Marisol realizes the effect losing her son had on Evelyn, she meets with Eddie again and tells him that, as strong as she is, she is not strong enough to lose him. Therefore, they have to get him out of there, but in order for that to happen they have to be absolutely honest with each other. Later, Eddie remembers overhearing a portion of a conversation Flora had over the phone, in which she claimed that something she did was on video. He tells this to Marisol. ("Taking Out the Trash")

Marisol 106
Rec room. ("Walking the Dog")

Marisol informs Ida over the phone that Flora was using a DVD to try and blackmail someone, and that it must be somewhere in the Powell house. She searches around the house for it, and instead finds an empty DVD case marked "Taylor #3". She plays the disc inside the DVD player and finds that it's a sex tape of Taylor and Michael Stappord, from one of their sessions when she worked for Adrian. Evelyn interrupts Marisol, and comes to learn that she found the DVD. She tells this to Adrian, who worries that Marisol might have been looking for the DVD and might be trying to hurt him. He suggests firing her, since they know Marisol has had an agenda from the get-go, but Evelyn isn't willing to let the maid go, and challenges Adrian to keep his secrets from her. Adrian is convinced. Some time later, Marisol stops by the Powell house with the fake pretext of having forgotten her spare key there, and asks to take a look around the study. Adrian, delighted and intent on playing the game, allows her to, but Marisol is unable to retrieve the DVD, which has been moved. She then wises up to the fact that Adrian might be on to her. Therefore, she decides to go in another direction: she makes martinis for Michael and Taylor and reveals to them that Adrian has a collection of DVDs of Taylor's sessions. Marisol offers to steal them, but she'd have to know where he keeps them stored. Michael keeps drinking, and Taylor asks them if he knew anything, but he doesn't respond and storms out. The women follow him to the Powell house, concerned, to find Michael beating up Adrian and demanding to know where the DVDs are. Evelyn shows up with a baseball bat, however, and intimidates Michael into stopping. She then takes Marisol to a room hidden at the end of a hallway where she sees a camera pointing at a one-way glass, on the other side of which is the bedroom where the prostitution sessions took place. On the walls are several shelves filled with an extensive collection of DVS. Evelyn picks up the Taylor collection, and Marisol notices several DVDs bearing Flora's name. On their way out of the Powell house, Evelyn tells Marisol that she is fired - another setback. Later, Michael calls Adrian and they discuss the existence of an incriminating DVD of Flora's. Adrian claims that he destroyed it and Michael is relieved, but we then see Adrian holding a DVD that reads "Flora #10", with a grin on his face... ("Walking the Dog")

Marisol 107
A new alliance is formed. ("Taking a Message")

Marisol comes back to the Powell house one day to apologize to Evelyn and ask for her old job back, but Evelyn states that good help must keep the secrets of the employers, and she didn't, so she isn't welcome back in their house. Later, Marisol meets with the girls and they are sympathetic regarding her losing her second job, so they give her an envelope with money to help her in what they think is a time of need. Marisol is touched and accepts, to keep up her cover, and later, whilst talking to Ida on the phone, she confesses that she feels bad over lying to the maids. Ida tells her to keep her eye on the prize, for they are so close to getting Eddie out of jail. Marisol then meets with Rosie to go shopping, and a former student of hers recognizes her and addresses her as "Professor Suarez". Marisol denies being said person, but Rosie is left suspicious. She does a little digging up and uncovers that Marisol is indeed a college professor. She confronts her about this, and Marisol lies at first, but Rosie begs that she tell the truth, because they are friends and she can help. Marisol then reveals her agenda, and Rosie is horrified to learn that she is mother of the boy who allegedly killed Flora. She leaves and, in the rush, she drops her bag and accidentally leaves her cell phone behind. Marisol is scared that Rosie might blow her cover, but she reads a message from Spence that reveals his affair with Rosie, and she then confronts her fellow maid and threatens to reveal the affair to Peri should Rosie tell anyone the truth about her. Zoila and Carmen come over, having been told by Rosie to do so, but, and even though they find the other two maids arguing, Rosie invents that Marisol doesn't want to keep the money they gave her. The other ladies tell them that's nothing to argue over and try to keep things normal, but Rosie isn't willing to. However, after Raul brings her some correspondence from her son and shares sympathy with her, for a mother shouldn't be without her child, Rosie thinks further about Marisol's situation and meets with her to tell her that she will keep her secret, and help her get her son back. She asks how she can help, and Marisol gets an idea... which is how Evelyn Powell gets a new maid. ("Taking a Message")

Marisol 108
The crazies who cook. ("Minding the Baby")

Marisol coaches Rosie on how to get to the secret room in the Powell house where Adrian keeps his raunchy DVD collection, and instructs her to go through the Flora collection and find the one she was gonna use to blackmail someone. The other girls come in to the diner to meet them, but Rosie and Marisol can't join them for lunch. Marisol is quick to make up a lie, and Rosie comments that she's very good at it. Marisol replies that she didn't use to be... Marisol then comes home to retrieve her wallet and finds the Stappords having intercourse on the kitchen counter, and an embarrassing moment ensues. Later, Taylor reveals to Marisol that she and Michael are trying to conceive, but Taylor is insecure about whether or not she can bear her husband a child, which is all he's ever wanted. Marisol offers to take her to a clinic to get her checked out. Meanwhile, Rosie works as Marisol's undercover agent at the Powell house, but she takes the Westmore baby with her, which proves to be a complication... until Evelyn grows to be found of the child. Rosie is able to watch through nine DVDs of Flora, but nothing in them came close to an assault. At the clinic, Marisol accidentally spills that she tried their treatments and eventually had to adopt a child when she couldn't conceive, but Taylor reminds her that in her interview she'd said she had no family. Marisol is forced to lie and say she had to give the child back. Taylor then runs into a friend of Olivia's, who claims to have had a falling out with the latter, and reveals her plans to get pregnant. The woman then calls Olivia to inform her... Marisol comes home to find Olivia in the kitchen, preparing a pot roast for Michael, hoping to know why exactly he wants to impregnate Taylor if he still supposedly loves his ex-wife. Marisol confesses that she lied to Olivia about Michael still being in love with her, and thus breaks Olivia's heart. She apologizes, but Olivia says that's not enough. When Rosie informs her "partner in crime" that she quit her job with the Powells because of Evelyn's strange liking to Tucker, Marisol tells her that Evelyn's fine, but Rosie calls her out for lying so much. She then apologizes, but Marisol confirms this... she's had to lie so much she doesn't even notice it anymore, and she's starting to worry about herself. However, when Rosie comes back to the Powell house to collect her pay, she notices an additional Flora DVD in the safe, and agrees to come back and work for Evelyn, per her request. She informs Marisol of this, who tells her how to get to the DVD... and she does. ("Minding the Baby")

Marisol 109
Marisol poses as Flora. ("Scrambling the Eggs")

Marisol shows the DVD to Ida, her consultant, and it shows a conversation between Flora and Michael about legal matters. Apparently, Flora's rapist agreed to a settlement, to write her a check should she stay mum about the matter, but Flora isn't pleased with the amount of money offered to her. Michael claims that she doesn't have any proof, and Flora reveals that she is pregnant, and the baby's father is close to the rapist. Michael warns her to be weary of the man who assaulted her, for he is vicious, but Flora claims to not be worried. Marisol and Ida discuss over the two men apparently linked to Flora's murder: her rapist, and her baby's father. They wonder which of the two could have done the maid in. Marisol then has the idea of talking to Flora's grandmother, Mirta. She tries to visit the woman at her resting home, but Flora's cousin is there and refuses to let them talk, and forbids visitors for his grandmother. However, Marisol returns, under the pretext of visiting Mirta's roommate, and tries to inquire Mirta... only to come to learn that she is senile and mistakes her for Flora. Marisol pretends to be the deceased maid, and engages in a conversation with her "grandma", in which Mirta scolds her for not being as nice to Eddie as he deserves. Marisol wonders if Mirta thinks "she" loves Eddie, and Mirta confirms that Flora does, in her own way. However, he's never going to marry her if he finds out she's pregnant. Marisol wants to know more, and learns that Flora cheated on Eddie with a friend of his, and that's who the baby's father is. However, before she can get a name, Mirta drifts off, getting lost in her senility. ("Scrambling the Eggs")

Marisol 110
Marisol interrogates a "friend" of her son's. ("Hanging the Drapes")

Marisol and Ida meet with Eddie in jail and question him about a possible friend of his with whom Flora may have had an affair. Eddie is confused, since he never introduced Flora to any of his friends, but then he remembers something... something that he doesn't want to tell his mother, only Ida. Marisol is aggravated, but doesn't have much of a choice, so she leaves them both to talk. Marisol then leaves Ida a message, asking her to tell her what Eddie said, and Taylor then comes home and announces that she's pregnant. They are all excited, but Michael's excitement wears off when he sees that Taylor wants to tell people. He worries Olivia might find out. Marisol meets with Ida at a later time, for Eddie is okay with Ida telling his mother what happened. Ida tells her that Flora met some of Eddie's clients... who bought drugs from him. Flora met Brad Valera, one of Eddie's co-workers at Beverly Cuisine Catering, and they sold drugs to the guests of the parties they catered to. Marisol is shocked; she goes to the point of questioning whether Eddie did kill Flora. Ida reinforces her hope, and sends her off to find Brad. Marisol tells her to let Eddie know that she won't be able to see him for a while. Later, Taylor comes home with baby clothes and Marisol suggests that she throw a dinner party to announce her pregnancy, and that she hire a catering company. When the time for the dinner party comes, Marisol interrogates Brad, the caterer, about Flora. Brad tells her that the slutty maid made out with a rich boy at one of the parties, as soon as Eddie turned his back. Marisol asks for a name, and Brad points her in the direction of one of the party guests: Remi Delatour. Marisol is surprised, but her surprise turns into absolute horror when she notices something else: the dangling body of Olivia Rice just outside their window, hanging from a tree. She rushes to get Michael's attention, and he runs outside to try and save his suicidal ex-wife. ("Hanging the Drapes")

Marisol 111
Peek-a-boo, I hear you... ("Cleaning Out the Closet")

Taylor is upset over the fact that Michael keeps dedicating a lot of time to doting on his ex-wife, who is recuperating from her suicide attempt. She wants to speak with Marisol about it, but is unable to find her. Meanwhile, Marisol is out to have a secret meeting with Ida in the latter's car, where they discuss that they can't go to the D.A. with their story because there's no proof that Flora was pregnant with Remi's baby. The following day, Taylor finally finds Marisol, who tells her she had to meet with a friend to discuss some issues. Taylor tells her of her problem with Michael and Olivia, and Marisol suggests that she goes with Michael to the hospital to show support, as a sign of good faith. Taylor is thankful, and asks Marisol about her friend's issues, but the maid refuses to answer. Taylor points out that she tells her maid everything but she reveals nothing about her life in return, and Marisol claims that her life is not very interesting. Later, Marisol and Ida put on a show: Remi shows up at the Stappord house, blindsighting Michael, having been called there by a woman. Ida then shows up, introducing herself and revealing that she arranged for this meeting. She brings up the fact that Flora was pregnant with Remi's baby, and asks the young man if that is why he killed her. Michael demands that Ida leave, and when she does he has a meeting with Remi. Remi then meets with Ida to make a claim for his innocence, and Ida shows him Flora's DVD, hoping he might help her with the case. However, he says he can't help her and barges out. Ida informs Marisol that Michael should be receiving a call soon, and that she should overhear it. Things go exactly as Ida anticipated, but when Marisol tries to eavesdrop on her employer's conversation, she is caught by Taylor, who becomes suspicious. Later, when Michael and Taylor are seen at the hospital, after one of his visits to Olivia, he thanks her for supporting him, and she apologizes for not having done that from the get-go. He asks her what changed, and she explains that she had a talk with Marisol, who straightened her out. They both agree that she's smart, and then Taylor, rather nonchallantly, tells him that she caught Marisol eavesdropping. Taylor doesn't take this into much account, but Michael isn't pleased. He tells his wife to keep an eye on Marisol and not let her know that things have changed. Taylor asks if something has changed. He says, "Oh yeah..." ("Cleaning Out the Closet")

Marisol 112
A view to a kill. ("Getting Out the Blood")

Marisol has lunch with the girls and a celebrity news reporter hits up Carmen with questions about Alejandro's sexuality. When Marisol and Rosie share this with Zoila, the latter reveals that she herself has some juicy intel on the Delatour family but would never share it with the media. She reveals that there was a family get-together in which Remi punched his father, Philippe, and whispered something to him. Marisol is suspicious. Meanwhile, Remi confronts his father about having murdered Flora, an accusation that Philippe rebutts. Taylor receives a phone call to be informed that the Delatours' engagement party will be hosted at the Powell home, and the Stappords haven't seen the Powells since the night Michael attacked Adrian, so the evening should prove to be awkward. Marisol asks why Philippe is important to Michael, and what Michael does for him, and Taylor doesn't know how to respond. She then calls her husband to let him know that Marisol asked questions about Philippe. Michael informs his client of this, and Philippe, rather quickly, hires a hitman to take care of Marisol, while Michael does some research on her. He comes to learn that she is the mother of Eddie Suarez, the kid who was jailed for Flora's murder, so there is no way they can buy her off. When Philippe says that he's taken care of the problem, and that Michael shouldn't worry, the latter does just this. He rushes home to warn Marisol that he and other people know the truth about her, and that she must leave for she is not safe there. Meanwhile, outside of the Stappord house, Marisol is already under the watchful eye and the gunpoint range of the hitman. However, she goes to pack her things and he is therefore unable to fire. Taylor notices Marisol packing up and wonders what is going on. As Marisol goes to take her luggage to the cab waiting outside, Michael tells his wife everything. Marisol comes back for her purse and to say goodbye. She apologizes for having had to lie to them, and Taylor asks if she lied about being her friend, which Marisol denies. Taylor tells her husband that Marisol is their friend and they have to protect her, but Michael has other concerns besides her safety. However, Taylor won't budge, and goes outside to get Marisol's luggage back... and ends up getting shot in the stomach by the sniper, who thought it was Marisol. The hitman makes a run for it and Michael and Marisol rush outside and are horrified to find Taylor lying in a puddle of blood on the ground, yet still conscious. Michael urges Marisol to call 911 and holds his wife in his arms, desolate. ("Getting Out the Blood")

Marisol 113
It's showtime. ("Totally Clean")

Taylor is rushed to the hospital, and Michael informs the doctor that his wife is pregnant. Eventually, Taylor's life is saved by the experts, but her baby succumbs to the gunshot wound. Michael is devastated, and Marisol gives him her sorrows, but continues to ask further questions about Flora and Philippe's involvement in her death. Michael refuses to tell her the truth, because it would jeopardize his career and she still wouldn't be able to use the info against Philippe, but Taylor regains consciousness and tells her husband to tell Marisol... which he does. Later, Marisol sends out text messages to her three maid friends, telling them what happened to Taylor and calling them over to the hospital. There, she comes clean: she tells them that she's not really a maid, but a college professor, and that she's been posing as someone else to gather intel on Flora Hernandez and her death. They learn that she is the mother of the boy who was arrested for Flora's murder, that Rosie knew about it, and that Marisol thinks Philippe Delatour killed Flora. But she's gonna need their help to prove it... Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Marisol, Philippe asks the Powells to borrow their jet, but Adrian refuses it, and Philippe eventually slips up in his words and the Powells become aware that he murdered Flora, and decide to punish him together. Marisol tells Zoila to call Genevieve and say that her friends will help catering the party, and the four maids get set to bring down Philippe. At the Delatours' engagement party, hosted at the Powell house, the four maids arrange it so that Philippe follows Marisol to the bedroom where the sex sessions used to occur. On the other side, in the secret room, Rosie turns on the camera to witness the event. Marisol confronts Philippe about killing Flora, but is unable to get him to confess. He then advances on her to kill her as he did Flora, but Evelyn shows up with a security officer to throw Marisol out, because she doesn't want her in her house. Marisol is upset because nothing in the tape comes close to a confession, but what she doesn't know is that the Powells have their own little idea as to how to bring about justice for Flora's murder. Adrian fixes up a drink for Philippe, complete with a potent muscle relaxant, and before the murderer himself dies, Adrian lets him know that this is happening because of Flora. Evelyn witnesses everything, and the Powells then tell the police what happened as Philippe's body is taken: he confessed to killing Flora and jumped through the window, landing on the pool. The authorites question the Powells, thinking their story is flimsy, but the maids back it up, telling them they heard it too. The Powells are confused that they're helping them, but Marisol is pleased. Some time later, the maids all have lunch together at the park, and Marisol brings her son along, having now been released from jail. Their good fun is cut short, however, when ICE officers show up to take Rosie away... ("Totally Clean")

Marisol asks him if he will tell her the truth but Nick replies it isn't what she thinks and he leaves.

Marisol tells him she does not know if she still loves him or not because she does not know him. Nick decides to leave the apartment. Marisol warns him that whatever Opal had on him, she will find it. Nick says that she will “wish she hasn't.” Later, Marisol decides to return the keys to the landlady. The latter realizes there is a little silver key which is not one of her keys. She reads "Beverly Pacific" on it, and Marisol realizes it is the key of Opal's safe-deposit box, and she probably put the evidence there. She takes the key and she leaves. Later, Marisol has Carmen do her make-up so that she looks like Opal. Then, she heads to the bank to open Opal’s safe deposit box. All that is in the box is a yellow envelope. She opens the envelope and finds a bloody piece of fabric and a newspaper clipping.
