Drama, drama, drama – that’s how we would describe episode 2 of the hit Lifetime series “Devious Maids.” From Zoila and Valentina’s mother/daughter conflict to Alejandro’s shocking death, we could barely keep count of all the jaw-dropping moments! But if you thought last week’s episode was filled with thrills and chills just wait until you hear the shenanigans that are rumored to go down in episode 3, “Dangerous Liaisons.”
First off, we think it’s important to mention that Season 2 of “Devious Maids” is following a trend. Did you catch it? That’s right, they’re naming their episodes after famous plays. And next week’s episode happens to be dubbed after the 1985 play written by Christopher Hampton and adapted from the 1782 novel of the same title Pierre Choderlos de Laclos.
The plot of the story focuses on the rivalry of Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, enemies who used sex as a weapon of humiliation and degradation. The protagonists, who love playing cruel games, target virtuous (and even married) woman. Merteuil and Valmont trick their lovers and eventually used them for their own benefit by placing the love-stricken girls smack dab in their treacherous schemes.
The play was also turned into a film in 1988 that starred names like Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer, Keanu Reeves and Uma Thurman. The film was even nominated for seven Academy Awards and ended up winning three.
But enough background information—fans of “Devious Maids” can expect Marisol to discover shocking news about Nicholas and Opal, Rosie will take Kenneth to a specialist, Carmen will prepare for a performance in front of industry bigwigs, Genevieve will invite Zoila to a luncheon and Evelyn will grow pretty wary of Adrian’s behavior, according to next week’s synopsis.
