“Devious Maids” might be winding down with only four episodes left of Season 3, but the sizzling drama of the Lifetime series is only getting hotter as the Marc Cherry show continues. And a majority of the red-hot intensity stems from the question everyone’s dying to know (pun intended): Who is the Season 3 killer(s)?
Fans are still scratching their heads, trying to figure out who is responsible for the deaths of both Louie Becker (Eddie Mills), the professional tennis player, and Blanca (Naya Rivera), the Stappord family’s former maid. And according to reports, it looks like viewers aren’t the only ones who have attempted to solve the Beverly Hills murder mystery episode after episode.
During an interview with TVLine, Susan Lucci, who portrays Genevieve Delatour on the series, revealed that the cast of “Devious Maids” also tried their hand at uncovering who the killer was, considering they too were left in the dark.
“In the hair and makeup trailer, everybody talks, and no one was able to figure [who was the killer was] except for one person, and it wasn’t until the very end,” she dished, adding that she wasn’t even in the ballpark when it came to guessing who the murderer was.
“I was not on that wavelength,” she admitted. “I was surprised, but you’ll definitely be able to go back and notice where all the clues were given. It’s very interesting.”
Guess we better pay closer attention while watching, huh?

Like Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, who plays the witty and wealthy character Evelyn Powell, confirmed that she was also unaware of who had sliced up Louie and hanged Blanca while the third installment was still being filmed.
“I’ll be honest with you, I don’t even know the full extent of who is responsible [for the murders],” she revealed to International Business Times in June while discussing whether or not viewers should be worried about another character turning into rose bush fertilizer.
The actress concluded that audiences should anticipate for Season 3 to gain speed as the action-stuffed plot gets closer to the finale.
“It just keeps getting faster and funnier,” she promised.
"Devious Maids" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.
