Devious Maids Season 1 Review “Scrambling the Eggs”

A few weeks back I lamented the balance of drama and comedy being a bit off on “Devious Maids”before the show managed a return to form shortly thereafter. This week, the balance was a bit too slanted in favor of the drama once again, but for some reason it didn’t bother me as much this time around in the latest episode, “Scrambling the Eggs.”

For instance, we don’t know all that much about Peri beyond her being actively bitchy and annoying, so it’s no great loss her not being on the show much lately; whereas the fact that we’ve gotten to know more about Evelyn lately made her much more sympathetic in this episode, where she wouldn’t really have been very relatable before.
