Devious Maids EP Explains [Spoiler]'s Death, Teases More Season 3 Twists

Devious Maids

Monday’s Devious Maids premiere picked up right where Season 2 left off, with Rosie and Spence’s nuptials being cut short by the sound of gunshots. So… who ended up in Ty’s line of fire?

It turns out there were three direct hits: Rosie, Pablo and an unidentified man of the cloth — but only one of their injuries proved fatal. In that spirit (unfortunate pun intended), let’s begin with the question I’m sure is on everyone’s mind: Why Pablo?!

“You don’t want to do any harm to a character, especially kill them, unless it’s going to be worth something great to you in storytelling,” executive producer Sabrina Wind explains. “We thought that for Zoila to be pregnant with a man’s baby whom she could not possibly be with, and to be in love with another man, just made for the most gut-wrenching and interesting storytelling.”

Below, TVLine breaks down the Season 3 premiere’s biggest moments, peppered with additional scoop from Wind to hold you over until next week’s (hopefully less fatal) episode.

WHO’S THE DADDY? | Speaking of Pablo, Zoila learned that he is the father of her unborn child, a fact she chose not to share with Javier upon informing him of her pregnancy. And don’t expect Zoila to fess up anytime soon! “I won’t say [the secret lasts] all season, but she definitely wrestles with it until she eventually decides to take action,” Wind teases. “Generally speaking, becoming pregnant really changes her perspective on a lot of things.”

SPENCE VS. ERNESTO | After waking from a four-month coma — a plot twist that only Devious Maids could get away with — Rosie discovered that Spence had launched a porn career while she was asleep. (¡Escandalo!) And with Rosie’s not-dead husband Ernesto soon returning to the picture, Wind says the couple’s happily-ever-after might have to be put on hold: “The greatest love triangles are the ones where you don’t know who to root for, and this has the makings of one of those,” she promises. “Cristián de la Fuente is maybe one of the hottest men I’ve ever seen, and as much as I root for Grant [Show], you see Ernesto and you think, ‘He’s just so hot!'”

SHADY KATIE | And what of the Stappords’ new “daughter”? The one who may or may not — probably not — be from Argentina? Wind can’t reveal the aftermath of the premiere’s final bloody moment, but she does acknowledge that Katie is “an important part of the storytelling in Season 3.” And her odd behavior doesn’t go unnoticed for long; there’s a scene in Episode 6 when Marisol, in a “somewhat drunken state,” says something to the effect of, “I don’t normally talk badly about children, but that girl is creepy!”

FIFTY SHADES OF… ADRIAN? | If you loved seeing Adrian’s interaction with that dominatrix — and, really, all of his sexual shenanigans with Evelyn — then you’re in for a treat this season. “In the second episode, she has learned of his proclivity and she attempts, in a somewhat tragic way, to participate,” Wind teases.

CAN’T BUY ME LOVE | After learning that Sebastian isn’t quite as successful as he appeared — and that he didn’t actually rent her that house — Carmen attempted to kick her married boyfriend to the curb. But that situation is far from over, and it’s only a matter of time before Carmen is forced to come face-to-face with his wife. “If and when it may happen, it’ll be just as amazingly funny and terrible as you’re probably imagining,” Wind says.

ACE OF MACE | Despite Valentina accidentally macing Remy during an over-protective jog, the couple appears to be sailing smoothly into Season 3. But this is Devious Maids, and we already know Edy Ganem is only appearing part-time this year, so it’s safe to say something big is on the way. “She has something life-changing happen to her, and she follows that journey,” Wind previews. “But she’s never going to be gone permanently from our universe. We love her too much.”

    How I’ve missed this show

  2. dude says:

    I only watched for Naya. It was better than I remembered but not by much. I’m really interested to see how this Taylor storyline works out. She was my fav in season one.

  3. Sammy says:

    I know. Its back to being amazing like season 1 for me.
    I hope at the end of the day Zoila ends up with Javier. They are better.
    Although some parts were predictable…. Anyways can’t wait for the rest of the season. Which it was released Netflix style.

  4. Knope says:

    I don’t think the girl is a killer, if that’s the case this show is VERY VERY PREDICTABLE … P.S. I love this show

  5. GeoDiva says:

    The crazy Powells are back!

  6. Kathy says:

    Season opener was GREAT!!!! Can’t wait for next week!

  7. Christy says:

    Not enough Genevieve! Love Susan Lucci!

  8. LADY_in_MD says:

    So glad it’s summer and my favorite guilty pleasure is back!
    The powells continue to be one of the funniest and most intriguing couples on TV! Didn’t see the death of Pablo coming but I understand it for plot purposes and now there can be more Susan Lucci! kinda sad about spencer having to do porn and how Rosie forgave him so easily
    I don’t think that the little girl could do that much but this show is crazy so who knows! Can’t wait for next week :-)

  9. Sara says:

    “Mooching off of a mooch” was hilarious. It should be included in the quotes of the week

  10. Essie says:

    I love this show, I’m glad it’s back!

  11. Diane says:

    I couldn’t wait for Season 3! This show is so awesome…I am so happy its back, can’t wait for rest of season. Love these crazy maids!!

  12. AddieM says:

    I watch for the Powells and they did not disappoint

  13. Does anybody know why Edy Ganem is only going to be in a few episodes this year? I couldn’t help but feel that Naya Rivera’s storyline was originally meant for Valentina. Did anybody else think that?
    Also, I bet the baby is actually Javier’s. The reason Zoila was crying was because she was hoping that Pablo ould live on through his child. I think she’s upset because any remaining shred of her relationship with Pablo is gone now. That’s a theory anyway – I realise she still has Valetina but she probably deep down wanted Pablo to be the father.

  14. What got me very puzzled was when Michael Stappord said “Tonight is the night” at Marisol’s party. Can’t wait to find out what that means!

  15. i rate it a B, like niyla styers cups.

    HFH ana ortiz, dania ramirez, roselyn sanchez on cast, it’ll always get a standing ovation from me and y pencil buddy

  16. What happened to Susan Lucci this season? She’s one of my favorite characters!!!!!

    • Skater Boy says:

      Devious Maids is on cable and unfortunately struggling in the ratings so they have huge budget restraints. Susan Lucci probably would get at least $60,000 an episode in Season 1 if not more with a major network but hear her salary undoubtedly would be slashed and with budget restraints she and the Powells only work 10 out of 13 episodes – sadly I would rather have the 4 lead maids cut to 10 because the Powells and Genevieve are gold! The Powells are so evil and yet laughable. And Genevieve is so much fun – she is no Erica Kane the famous Susan Lucci soap character but still what a hillarious character – the things that come out of her mouth and well the Powells – again gold – no platinum! Simply Money!!!!
