'I SAW THE SHINE' REVIEW
"You must be Zoila... my maid."
"I don't forgive you, and from now on, you're nothing to me."
"I was looking for you but you're crying so now I'm torn because I still need something ironed."
"Is he your trainer too? Maybe he's not as good as I thought."
"Be a good boy and get rid of this for me, okay?"
As we head full-steam into the season finale, I am so glad that, this late in the season, this is not a filler episode of the sort, an all the maids seemed to have a great direction. Nobody annoyed me with their filler storyline, which dragged down the last couple of episodes. It's all good now, and this episode lay on the revelations that makes this one of season 4's most important hours. I can confirm I am dying to see the next 2 episodes, as I thoroughly loved this one.
Best Rich Bitch: Evelyn.
Best Line: "I wanted her to come back broken with her tail between her legs. Instead, she comes back triumphant with a handsome black man between her legs." - Adrian.
Funniest Line: "Despite the bars, and the guards, this is still the most romantic moment of my life." - Rosie. "Attention, there's been a theft in the auto-shop. All prisoners prepare for cavity search." - Announcer. Perfect timing.

Runner-up: Fiona is back!
Funniest Moment: Carmen is divided between the Powells.
