Devious Maids Season 1 Review “Hanging the Drapes”

In the latest episode of “Devious Maids,” the bar was certainly raised- among other things- in terms of mixing comedy and drama, in the grimly-titled-in-retrospect “Hanging the Drapes.” As with the pilot, this episode featured a shocking death, only this time around, it was self-inflicted. Or was it a death?

To be honest, I’m not entirely sure. On the one hand, they got to her pretty quick, but on the other, if you’re going to go, that’s a pretty hardcore way to go about it. It’s not like trying to OD on pills- you don’t often hear about people coming back from a hanging. Still, it wouldn’t be entirely out of the question either, I think. Don’t they do these sorts of fake-outs on soap operas all the time? I guess we’ll find out in the next episode, which, frustratingly, won’t be for another two weeks.
