“Devious Maids” Recap: Season 2 Episode 2 “The Dark at the Top of the Stairs”


According to Celebrity Laundry, in this episode, Carmen feels threatened by Alejandro’s old flame as she tries to do her best to save her job.  Peri is devastated when Spence is asking for a divorce.  Rosie starts working for a new dysfunctional family as she was formally introduced to this family. The exchange of bitchy comments between the wife and daughter was hilarious, especially when the bitchy wife said “You know Rosie, Lucinda and I are not always like this, sometimes we get nasty.”

Alejandro then introduces Carmen to his old flame named Dario and Carmen told Alejandro that he is flirting with Dario. Everyone at the party is starting to notice that they agreed it’s time for them to leave the party. But, she was appalled when Alejandro gave her the keys to his apartment and told her instead not to wait up – quite funny!

The next morning, Carmen confronts him about Dario and Alejandro confesses that he was “the one that got away.” He got an invitation from Dario to move in with him to Spain and he told Carmen that he might reconsider and might call off their wedding. He then told Carmen that he needed to get some rest and said “I’m seeing Dario again tonight and this time, we won’t be talking.” Carmen was stunned.

Meanwhile, Evelyn and her friend were walking down the street.., voila! She spotted her ruby  necklace being worn by a homeless woman that she immediately tried to grab the necklace from her but the homeless woman managed to escape.

Rosie is also confused on taking sides between the daughter and the slutty wife. Zoila came rushing to the Powell’s residence to bring home Valentina but she insisted on not going home.  When she turns around, Zoila steals a jeweled egg from the Powells and slips it in her purse.

When Nick arrived home, she asked Marisol why his house is cluttered with her things and she told Nick that Opal won’t let her use the closet because it’s for Dalia’s things.  Nick made it clear that he is going to send them to Goodwill instead which will lead to a confrontation between Opal and Dalia later on.

Tony (Dominic Adams) saves the day when he knocks out a homeless man who won’t leave Evelyn alone while they were searching for the homeless woman that is wearing her ruby necklace in a homeless section.  He will continue on being Evelyn’s hero when he brings back her ruby necklace.  Evelyn asked how she can repay him but he insisted that “seeing her smile” is payment enough.

Zoila arrives home with her husband yelling at her and telling her that he is tired of Zoila taking control of his life and Valentina’s.  He found out what Zoila had done when Valentina called him and said that her mom stole the egg since Ethan revealed that he saw her mom took the jeweled egg and slip it into her purse. Later on during the episode, Pablo told Zoila that he is taking a break and will be moving into a small apartment.

Meanwhile, Rosie learns that Spence and Peri broke up and she confronts Spence but he told her to stay away and that he can no longer see her.


The climax of the story is when Carmen still throws the engagement party, despite everything and tried to turn it into a wedding so that Alejandro can’t leave her.  There was confrontation and drama but it was interrupted when the same robbers wearing ski masks came barging in and accidentally shoots Alejandro in the chest. Realizing they have killed someone, they fled instantly leaving Carmen sobbing over Alejandro’s body or most likely her dreams all shattered now.

That’s it for MNG’s “Devious Maids” recap of Season 2 Episode 2 “The Dark at the Top of the Stairs.” Stay tuned for more news and updates about “Devious Maids” including episode recap and spoilers, only here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
