Oh, sweetie, you may not be afraid of your mother, but I am.
Genevieve Delatour, "An Ideal Husband"

Zoila Diaz is one of the main characters and titular protagonists of Devious Maids. For a good 20 years she has worked as the sass-mouthed, fear-driven, but also loving and caring, maid of Genevieve Delatour, often serving as her emotionally unstable employer's rock whenever she falls into distress. Years of this, as well as raising her daughter, Valentina, has gotten to Zoila and put her in the mindset of always needing to take charge of what goes on around her. While this can lead to some detrimental instances - such as the dissolution of her marriage - Zoila's heart is always in the right place and she simply wishes to take care of those she loves.


Early Life

He made promises to me. And yes, I remember every single one.
Zoila Diaz, "Making Your Bed"

A picture of the Diaz family. ("Look Back in Anger")

Zoila was born in 1974. ("Since You Went Away") Growing up, Zoila had a younger sister, Reina, who always wanted whatever she had. To Zoila's dismay, in high school, Reina was always sneaking boys over. ("She Done Him Wrong", "The Turning Point") She was a bright young woman and had the opportunity to go to college, even earning herself a scholarship which she thought would always be there; however, she waited too long to act on it and it ended up slipping through her fingers, meaning she had to go on to work as a maid for Genevieve Delatour. ("The Dark at the Top of the Stairs") Early in her two decades working at the Delatour mansion, Zoila meets and falls in love with her employer's brother, Henri. The two carry on an ongoing romance, and Henri even promises to marry Zoila. This all comes to an end, however, when Henri leaves her to marry Cynthia, a woman introduced to him by Genevieve. This leaves Zoila heartbroken, and ever since, Genevieve has had regrets for introducing Henri to the woman he went on to marry. ("Wiping Away the Past", "Making Your Bed") In 1992, Zoila goes on to marry Pablo Diaz. Two years later, the two have a daughter, Valentina. Because of her past troubles with falling in love with rich men, Zoila does her best to prevent the same from happening to Valentina, meaning she strongly opposes her crush on Genevieve's son, Remi, since the start. ("Pilot", "Setting the Table", "Making Your Bed") Early on in her marriage to Pablo, he has an affair with her sister, Reina. ("She Done Him Wrong")

During Genevieve's second marriage to Philippe Delatour, a serial cheater, he buys her an expensive ring as an apology for sleeping with her nutritionist. She throws it at his eye and scratches his cornea, proceeding to give the ring to Zoila in case of a rainy day. ("Walking the Dog") During Genevieve's fourth marriage, Zoila was the first to know that both she and her husband were having affairs, mostly never sleeping at home at night, and meaning Zoila didn't have to make the bed in the morning. ("Whiplash") When in high school, Remi becomes addicted to drugs, and when sent to rehab, Zoila lies to Valentina, for she was still young. ("Taking a Message") At one point during Zoila's time as Genevieve's maid, she is asked by her boss to provide her with shampoo whilst in the shower. To her surprise, however, Genevieve wasn't alone. After giving her the shampoo, Zoila spends the next hour waiting for Genevieve and the man to come out; all she can think about is that she's the one who has to clean the mess up. ("Pilot") During one of their visits together, Zoila's sister, Reina, steals her car. ("She Done Him Wrong") Zoila eventually befriends three fellows maids, Rosie Falta, Carmen Luna, and Flora Hernandez, but one day, she and her friends are told a secret by Flora of her plans for success. For quite sometime, Flora has had the intentions of becoming impregnated by a rich man's child, and then blackmailing him. Despite not approving of this, Zoila and her friends keep it a secret. In the summer of 2013 though, Flora ends up murdered in the home of the Powells, leaving only Zoila and a few others knocking the truth about her background. ("Pilot", "Totally Clean")

Zoila 101.png
Zoila shares her words of wisdom. ("Pilot")

Zoila attends the funeral of her friend and fellow maid Flora and as she, her daughter Valentina and her friends leave the graveyard, Rosie suggests that they go to the police with what they know of Flora's death, but her friends ward her off of the thought. Zoila is later introduced as the maid of Genevieve Delatour, along with with her daughter, and she discovers her employer under the bed having swallowed a whole bottle of pills after the pool boy left her. Remi, Genevieve's son, comes to help, and Valentina suggests that he stay home instead of go to college and commute. This excites Genevieve so much that she offers to go the the hospital, and takes Zoila to help her put her make up on first. Later, Zoila is  having lunch with her friends, and they invite new maid Marisol to their table and seem to hit it off with her... until the matter of Flora's murder arises and the other three leave suspiciously. When Zoila returns home, she sees that Valentina is flirting with Remi, and is less than happy. After work, Zoila goes shopping and returns home with a new outfit for Valentina. Her daughter is initially happy until she discovers that it's a stereotypical maid's outfit, wondering why her mother bought it. Zoila tells her daughter that it's her uniform and that she has to remember her place, assuring her that rich boys never fall in love with the help. When Zoila falls asleep, Valentina whips out her sewing kit and alters the dress to make her look sexy, and she is very happy when Remi approves. Later, when Zoila is once again having lunch with her friends, they once again invite Marisol over, but she is on her way somewhere, and so carries on walking. ("Pilot")

Zoila 102.png
A lesson is taught. ("Setting the Table")

Marisol shares with Zoila and the other maids a newspaper article featuring Flora; she reveals that she cleaned up the room the maid was murdered in, and Zoila warns her it may be best she keep her distance from the Powells. Back at the Delatour mansion, Zoila isn't too thrilled to see Valentina sitting down and making small talk with Remi; she calls her aside, reminding her that she is there to work, and that if she continues trying to get close to Remi then she will remove her from the home. Zoila and the other maids later join Carmen at Alejandro's mansion, who is currently out of town. Rosie complains about how little Carmen cleans, pointing out the collected dust on one of the tables, but Zoila insists she be quiet and just enjoy the time off work. She later discovers Valentina attended a movie with Remi and his friends the night before, and wanting to teach her a lesson, she convinces Genevieve to throw a party at her home for Remi and all of his friends, one which she and Valentina will work. Rosie reveals to her friends the affair which Peri is currently having with her costar, and is thinking of going to Spence about it; Marisol believes this is a bad idea. The party is had, and Valentina is humiliated to be seen working as a maid in front of Remi's friends. Zoila understands that Valentina doesn't realize what it is she is trying to protect her from, but that one day she will understand, and she is okay if her daughter has to hate her for the time being. ("Setting the Table")

Zoila makes a phone call. ("Wiping Away the Past")

Still determined to get with Remi, Valentina goes to Genevieve, who agrees to help her, and so she sends Zoila out across town to get her a jar of face cream. Zoila later meets with Marisol and Rosie, and Rosie shares her current predicament with Spence, who has given her a loan, but when thankfully hugging him, she was able to feel his erection. Zoila is not pleased to learn that Valentina helped Remi pack up his things to move back to Genevieve's mansion, and when he talks about buying Valentina a new sewing machine, she sees Genevieve is too blame for the two becoming increasingly close. Still upset about someone from the past, and not wanting the same thing to happen to her daughter, Zoila tells Genevieve she and Valentina will not be returning to work for a few days, giving Genevieve time to tell Remi to stay away. When having dinner with her husband, Pablo that evening, he believes it was wrong of Zoila to just walk out on Genevieve, but she argues that he wasn't there to know the full story, but she also doesn't want to talk about it. Genevieve shows up soon after, wanting to make up, but as Zoila and Pablo watch from a window, they see her get chased by a neighborhood dog, leading her to falling back-first into the bushes. Not wanting to ruin Zoila and Genevieve's friendship, Remi suggests he and Valentina stop hanging out, and after Genevieve is sent home and has fallen asleep, Zoila calls Henri, stating that he needs to visit as soon as he can. ("Wiping Away the Past")

Zoila 104.png
Zoila realizes she was too good for him. ("Making Your Bed")

Genevieve's brother, Henri pays a visit, and Zoila's shocked to learn that he is divorcing his wife, the woman he left her for, Cynthia. Back home later on, Zoila is annoyed to learn Pablo didn't change the light bulb in the pantry, and Valentina learns from her father the history Zoila shares with Henri. Zoila snaps at Marisol for her constant questions about Flora, but the maids all give in and reveal what they know about their deceased friend's pregnancy. Henri manages to convince Zoila to go to dinner with him to make up for the past, something Valentina overhears. At dinner the two reminisce about their past together, and Henri apologizes leaving the way he did; Zoila apologizes for Cynthia not making him happy. Things go well between the two at first, but when Zoila realizes that all Henri is trying to do is hook up with her, she gets up to leave, exclaiming that for twenty years she blamed herself for letting him get away, thinking she wasn't good enough for him, but now she realizes that it's him who isn't good enough for her. Valentina confronts Zoila when she arrives back at Genevieve's knowing that Henri is the reason her mother doesn't want her being with Remi. Zoila argues that all rich men are alike, while Valentina retaliates that they aren't but if Remi isn't what she expects then she would rather get hurt then end up with her second choice, spending twenty years wondering "what if?" like her mother. Zoila makes it clear, however, that she does love Pablo, and that he is the love of her life, to which Valentina begs Zoila let her end up with her own. Zoila ends up doing just that, and after Henri is gone, she cries in Genevieve's arms, never wanting to see him again. She apologizes for this, knowing that he is her brother and all, but Genevieve wholeheartedly points out that that may be, but that Zoila is also her sister. ("Making Your Bed")

Zoila 106.png
Zoila receives some unpleasant news regarding Genevieve. ("Walking the Dog")

Zoila and Genevieve return from a shopping trip, and the latter is upset over the fact that she is no longer a size zero. Valentina brings news that the gardeners and poolboy's checks have bounced, and Zoila calls Genevieve's business manager, only to learn he has disappeared, taking all of Genevieve's money with him, leaving her without a cent to her name. Zoila and Remi speak with Genevieve's lawyer, Michael Stappord, who reveals that though Genevieve's business manager has been found, they are unable to get with him because he is in Brunei, which the United States does not have an extradition treaty with. Michael suggest Genevieve sell her home, but she refuses, instead going to the spa, and Remi, meanwhile, learns that his trust fund is gone as well, and so he turns to cocaine. Zoila returns to Genevieve a ring that was given to her ten years before, but the latter refuses, wanting to find money another way. Zoila reveals that she will be quitting by the end of week if Genevieve can't think of something fast, for there are bills to pay, and after some thinking, the two realize that Genevieve could guilt money out of one of her ex-husbands. The two visit Philippe, Genevieve's second husband, but not wanting to whore herself out to him, Genevieve leaves. Zoila tells her she will find a way to get by, learning how to look out for herself and all, but realizing that's not what she want, she returns to Philippe agreeing to have sex will him for the million dollar painting he offered. She also ends up returning Zoila's ring, stating that she's being married six times, but the only one to stay by her side is her. When questioned what Genevieve will do now, she reveals that it's time to find a seventh husband. ("Walking the Dog")

Valentina goes to Zoila about Remi's drug use. ("Taking a Message")

Having heard Marisol quit her job for the Powells, Zoila and the other maids put money together, believing she must have needed it if she took a second job, and give it to her as a gift. Later on though, Rosie meets up with Zoila and Carmen, believing that there may be more to their new friend's story after a suspicious encounter from the grocery store. Zoila and Valentina are later doing Remi's laundry, and Valentina uses what she thought was detergent she found in Remi's room, but was actually cocaine. When finding out about this, she goes to Zoila, who reveals that Remi has been addicted to cocaine once before; she comforts her daughter who worries for the man she loves. Meanwhile, having learned that Marisol is a college professor and the mother of the man accused of Flora's murder, Rosie calls Zoila and Carmen over to reveal the truth, but Marisol blackmails her, having learned of her affair with Spence. Zoila later meets with Remi, who is ready to leave for a party; she reminisces back to when he was a child and how even then he was always taking care of his mother when it should have been the other way around, and how whenever he made mistakes he didn't ever have someone to fall back on like he should have. She states that things are different now, and that there are people who care about him. Remi realizes what is going on, that Valentina told her about his drug use, but he is unable to get away, for Philippe arrives to take him to rehab. ("Taking a Message")

Zoila 108.png
Zoila slips up. ("Minding the Baby")

Genevieve returns from a cruise, bringing with her a new fiancé, Alfred Pettigrove, a blind millionaire in search of a young wife to give him children, who has been tricked by Genevieve into believing she is only 39 years of age. She convinces Zoila and Valentina to keep the ruse going, and over dinner that evening, Zoila and Genevieve subtly bicker over the lie; Zoila makes comments such as Alfred should feel her neck (which is wrinkly) and that he shouldn't believe everything she says (regarding her age.) Alfred tells his tale of how he never got married and had a family, and he brags about Genevieve for agreeing to be his bride and mother a child for him, something that shocks both Zoila and Valentina. Zoila confronts Genevieve about this, in private, who reveals her plan to marry Alfred, claim to be barren, and then adopt with him, all of which Zoila strongly disapproves of. Genevieve claims it'll all work out, and that she will be a great mother, which is the last straw for Zoila, who about reveals Remi is away in rehab for cocaine, but Valentina interrupts just in time, stating that he is away with friends. After Genevieve goes to tend to Alfred, Valentina tells her mother that Remi can tell Genevieve everything when he is home, and that Alfred will eventually discover the truth on his own, for he is blind, not stupid. Later on though, while with Alfred, Zoila makes small talk, and reveals that Genevieve's father died in the Korean War, which leads to him piecing together the lies he has been told. He decides to leave Genevieve, leaving her unnerved with Zoila, but he changes his mind, under the condition Valentina lends her eggs for them to produce a child... ("Minding the Baby")

Zoila 109.png
Genevieve is hit with the inevitable truth. ("Scrambling the Eggs")

Needing Zoila's approval, first of all, before asking Valentina to lend her eggs, Genevieve tries to suck up to her maid, and leads into what she is going to ask. She reveals how Alfred has agreed to marry her, and that they have a surrogate, but that he still doesn't want anonymous eggs. Zoila believes that Genevieve is going to ask for her eggs at first, but is enraged and offended when Genevieve asks for Valentina's. She does not approve, and forbids Genevieve from even mentioning this to Valentina, even if it means Alfred will leave her. Later, out with the other maids, Zoila learns from Carmen that Odessa Burakov has cancer, and that Alejandro seems to not care as much, even though he knows she's ill. This leads to Zoila posing the question of would their bosses truly care if they died; Marisol believes it'd depend on how well the maid who replaced them was. Zoila later discovers that Alfred went to Valentina behind her back, and has convinced her into giving him one of her eggs. Though she forbids it, Valentina points out that it's her body, and she can do whatever she wants with it. This doesn't stop Zoila though, who goes to Genevieve, convincing her to talk Valentina out of it, for she herself should not be raising another child. Zoila reveals that Remi is in rehab, and that instead of having Valentina's child, she needs to focus on the one she already has. Because of this, Alfred leaves, meaning Valentina's are no longer needed; however, Zoila decides to sell the ring Genevieve once gave to her to pay for Valentina's tuition. ("Scrambling the Eggs")

Zoila suggests Valentina quit her job as a maid. ("Hanging the Drapes")

With Remi returning home from rehab, Valentina confides in Zoila her fears of Remi hating her for getting him sent in the first place. This proves to not be the case though, for Remi returns, thankful for Valentina helping him get better, and he even kisses her. Zoila later meets with the maids; Carmen reveals that she agreed to shave Alejandro's back, but that it's more than what she bargained for... Valentina soon arrives, introducing the other maids to Remi, who meanwhile wishes to speak to Zoila. In private, he asks for permission to be with Valentina, but Zoila suggests he ask Pablo instead, and invites him over for dinner to meet him. Things do not go well, for Valentina starts to have second thoughts about him when she sees what little he really knows about. Zoila, meanwhile, has to quiet Pablo who continuously makes rude, inappropriate joke regarding Remi's former drug use. Things don't get better for Valentina though, and she ends up going off, annoyed with Remi; she storms off from the dinner table and Zoila goes after her, leaving Remi alone with Pablo who questions if he'd like heroine at the moment. After Remi leaves, Valentina apologizes for freaking out at dinner, but confesses that she's worried Remi still sees her as nothing but the help. Zoila reassures her though, and suggests that she quit, seeing as how she'll be starting class in the Fall anyway. ("Hanging the Drapes")

Zoila 111.png
Philippe and Genevieve go unblessed. ("Cleaning Out the Closet")

Having forgot her phone at work, Zoila returns to Genevieve's, only to find her in the company of Philippe, who she has been seeing since Remi returned from rehab. Zoila does not approve of this, worried that he will hurt Genevieve again; it's too late though, for she has already begun falling in love with him again. The following day, Philippe asks for Zoila's help with a wine stain on his shirt, but the two clash, for Zoila refuses to make his stay any easier after what he's done in the past. He reveals that Genevieve ended up confessing love for him the night before, and asked him to move back in; he questions if he should tell her Zoila asked him not to, but the maid states that he can - she just won't do his laundry. She later pays Margo Grayson to pretend to be a wine seller who tests Philippe, flirting with him; he gives her his card, just as Zoila suspected he would. However, Philippe and Genevieve later announce their engagement, and though Valentina is thrilled for them, Zoila and Remi are not. Zoila refuses to give her blessing, going on to reveal his encounter with Margo; Philippe retaliates that if Zoila keeps things up, such as ruining events like one, there will be changes, and it won't matter one way or another if her daughter is "doing" his son. Remi, with this being the last straw, punches his father in the face, proceeding to whisper something in his ear, and storm off. Despite this, Genevieve still decides to go through with the wedding. ("Cleaning Out the Closet")

Zoila 112.png
A choice is made. ("Getting Out the Blood")

Marisol and Rosie tell Zoila about Carmen being offered ten-thousand dollars to out Alejandro as a homosexual, something she strongly disapproves of, and hopes she does not go through with. She goes on to tell of the recent events between Remi and Philippe, something that catches Marisol's attention; however, Zoila soon has to go, for Genevieve has found a gray hair in her wig. Valentina later shares with Zoila Remi's plan to leave for Africa and work as an assistant, revealing she wishes to go with him as well. Zoila, as always, disapproves, stating that if Remi wishes to do this then he should, but that he can be with Valentina when he gets back. Valentina, however, states that she wasn't asking for permission, but telling Zoila her decision, something that enrages her mother. Zoila later speaks with Remi, hearing that the group of doctors have accepted his application; she goes on to say that for the longest time, Valentina has dreamed of being a designer. She talks about when a child, she would make dressed for her dolls, and so Zoila has since spent her time encouraging her daughter's dream, even making it her own. Remi realizes that Zoila doesn't want Valentina going to Africa with him, but he confesses he's scared of losing her. Zoila states that if he truly loves her then he will allow her to go to school; she convinces him to copy a note she has written into his handwriting, explaining why he is leaving without her. Remi believes that if he does this then she'll never forgive him, but Zoila promises that in a year she'll know the truth, and it'll be her who isn't forgiven. ("Getting Out the Blood")

Remi has taken Zoila's advice and left for Africa without saying goodbye to his loved ones. When Zoila is told to wake him up, she returns from his room with two letters in tow: one for Genevieve and the other for Valentina. Both of them are crushed while Zoila tries her best to rectify the situation, taking her daughter out to lunch in an attempt at cheering her up. However, Valentina can't help but be depressed the whole time, finally concluding that her mother was right all along... why would a boy like Remi love her? She's nothing. Zoila assures her that that's not true and that Remi loves her very much. Valentina wonders how she knows this, and Zoila says that she saw the look on his face when she asked him to write her that note. The teenage maid is shocked that her mother would do such a thing and publicly rejects her. Zoila tries profusely to apologize, but Valentina is later seen packing her bags for Africa, planning to find Remi and be with him for the next year. After Taylor Stappord is shot and loses her unborn child, Marisol decides it's time to call the maids together and confess to what she has been up to this whole time, revealing to have been trying to find out who really killed Flora. Zoila is shocked to learn that Marisol thinks it's Philippe, but she gets the other maids into Genevieve's engagement party so they may get a confession. Each of them play their own part in getting Philippe alone with Marisol; Zoila finally gives her blessing. The maids fail though, for Marisol is thrown out due to her previous encounters with Evelyn Powell. However, the Powells have meanwhile solved the mystery as well, and decide to take matters into their own hands by avenging Flora; they poison Philippe and throw him from the balcony, claiming it to have been suicide. The maids back them up on this, and so Marisol's son is exonerated. A picnic lunch is had to celebrate, but the happiness is cut short when Rosie is arrested by immigration... ("Totally Clean")

Genevieve reveals she wishes because it drives her insane too, but she refuses to talk about it with Christopher. Later, Zoila brings a soup to Christopher, and the latter says "Oh la la" when he eats it. Zoila tells him that he says "Ooh la la" a lot, which is ridiculous. Christopher does not believe it, because everybody loves it especially Genevieve. However, Zoila admits Genevieve is crazy about him, so that is why it is hard for her to admit she also finds it ridiculous... in every single context.

Zoila meets her replacement. ("Bad Girl")

Carmen tells the girls about a kiss she shared with her music producer Jacklyn, and Zoila asks her friend to show her how she kissed her so that she can determine what it meant. Carmen refuses to kiss Zoila, kissing Rosie instead, but all they advise is that she simply ask Jacklyn what the kiss was to her. Later, Zoila is struggling to find anything in the kitchen because Dr. Neff is moving everything around, as well as re-cleaning things she's already cleaned. She finds this incredibly insulting and so goes to Genevieve about the issue, but Genevieve ends up taking her boyfriend's side because Zoila's not exactly at her best while pregnant, to Zoila's chagrin. She tells the girls at lunch about how she plans to go into Genevieve's house on her day off and clean every inch of it, thus proving what a good maid she still is. However, when she goes to do this, she meets Joy, Dr. Neff's maid who Genevieve suggested should come in on Zoila's days off so that they don't find out about each other. Genevieve and Neff are confronted about this, but Genevieve assures her maid that, despite what she thinks, she's not betraying her because she needs help while she's pregnant. Zoila has many issues with this but eventually comes to accept it. Later, when she's done sweeping, she asks Joy to get down on her knees and scoop up the dirt, which she can no longer do. Joy agrees to do this... but also ends up sweeping what Zoila's already swept. She isn't there to help; she's there to win. ("Bad Girl")

Zoila 310.png
"Maid code" is adhered to. ("Whiplash")

Zoila tries impressing Dr. Neff now that Genevieve has gone away to visit Valentina and Remi in New York. However, this is very difficult to do when Joy - Neff's maid - is constantly upstaging her. When Zoila makes a turkey sandwich, Joy makes a turkey dinner; when Zoila folds the towels neatly, Joy makes them into a swan; when Zoila makes the bed, Joy adds a mint to the pillow; and finally, when Zoila vacuums the floor, Joy takes out a giant floor-buffer. Sick of losing this rivalry, Zoila simply retires to cleaning a vase, but Joy tells her to stop. She ends up taking the vase and running away with it... but she slips over on the spot where she buffed the floors. As it turns out, the vase was in fact an urn, and the remains of Dr. Neff's beloved mother Lurlene come spilling out all over Joy. She begins moaning about how disappointed Neff will be in her, since he gave her a job after her mother died and has been good to her like a father for most of her life, and so Zoila just fills the urn with vacuum dust in the hopes that he won't find out. This doesn't work though, because Neff senses that his "mother" is lighter, and so Zoila abides by the "maid code" that she earlier accused Joy of flouting. She says how she accidentally spilled some of Lurlene, and Neff is furious; Joy is grateful that Zoila took the blame for her, but then she speaks to Dr. Neff and he says that she is to help him get rid of Zoila by making Genevieve choose him over her.

Neff's plan works: Zoila is fired. ("Terms of Endearment")

Joy approaches Zoila and asks to borrow $100, explaining that Dr. Neff's check bounced because he's broke and he's using Genevieve for her money. Zoila discusses this with the girls, wanting to stay out of it, but they agree that they'd like to know if they were dating a leech. When it looks like Neff is about to propose to Genevieve, Zoila runs into the room to interrupt, making up the excuse that she's going into labor. The three of them - she, Neff and Genevieve - go to the hospital where Zoila admits to her boss that she's faking, then telling her about Neff's financial situation. Genevieve fears that the rumor might be true and, when Neff proposes again, she confronts him about it. He tells her that the reason he's low on funds right now is because he just made a large donation to the hospital and had to move some things around - but he's still rich. This is a great comfort to Genevieve, though he wonders who told her this lie in the first place. He assumes it was Zoila and, as such, demands that Genevieve make a choice between him and her maid, considering the latter is constantly trying to undermine their relationship. Genevieve ends up making the wrong choice and fires Zoila in favor of her new fiancé. ("Terms of Endearment")

Gail Fleming is a less-than-ideal new boss. ("Suspicion")

Zoila calls Marisol in search of a job and ends up stuck with Gail Fleming, which she doesn't mind at first considering she doesn't want to be friends with her boss this time around anyway. When the neighbor's dog is barking all day, Zoila offers to go convince her to get it to quieten down, but when the neighbor, Susie, hears that the barking is bothering Gail, she refuses to do anything about it. As such, Gail ends up kidnapping the dog and giving it to a kill shelter, saying that it's a stray. This absolutely horrifies Zoila who ends up rescuing Susie's German Shepherd from the pound and convincing her to adopt a new Chihuahua - who, for a small dog, makes a lot of noise. She revels in Gail's dissatisfaction as she says that, while she doesn't need to like her boss, she does need to respect her, and she doesn't respect Gail. Meanwhile, Joy confesses to Genevieve that she lied to Zoila about Dr. Neff being poor as a part of his scheme to drive her away. Genevieve is shocked and subsequently kicks Neff out of her house. He suggests couples' therapy, but she points out that therapy is for couples who want their relationship to work out, while she has no longer has any interest in being with him. He can't believe she's choosing her maid over him, but she claims that she's choosing her friend over him. She meets up with Zoila later and tries convincing her to come back, but Zoila is still deeply hurt over how Genevieve tossed her aside. As such, Genevieve suggests that the two of them go to couples' therapy, not wanting to give up on this relationship. ("Suspicion")

She reveals that Marisol has a new job for her, but Genevieve wants her to come back, revealing that she hates Rosie and all her constant whining. Zoila refuses to snatch her friend's job away, and so Genevieve decides that she'll simply have two maids, to Zoila's apparent discomfort. Later, after having given Rosie some time off, Genevieve is cleaning the dishes herself, and Zoila tells her that she doesn't have to do her job for her just because of what happened. Still, Genevieve feels as though she should do something, but Zoila insists that she merely wants things to return to normal. This seems impossible though, for no matter what Genevieve tries it always seems to irk Zoila in some way. Finally, Zoila reveals that she finds it hard to be in this house and see Genevieve everyday after what she did; she says that Genevieve made the wrong decision in choosing her to live as opposed to her baby, and now she's sad all the time, wishing she'd died that day. After displaying some raw emotion, she decides that she can't be Genevieve's maid anymore, and she tries handing her employer back her keys before simply leaving them on the table and quitting. Marisol then sets her up with that other job, working in what used to be the Stappord house for a fashion designer who won't be there for another six months. Zoila takes comfort in the solitude, and later, while unpacking her new boss' boxes, she decides to have some fun and dress up a little.

They want to show her the photo album and her contrived attitude make Frances realize that she's weirded out by how close she and Kyle are. She confronts Zoila about this in private, eventually revealing that the reason she loves her son so much is because he was her miracle baby, having been born after a long series of miscarriages that left her with a looming sense of loss and depression.

The "new" Zoila can behave as though she didn't just lose a baby. ("War and Grease")

Kyle is out of town on family business, meaning he's absent when Zoila goes to visit him and instead she goes out to lunch with Frances, proceeding to enjoy the many perks that stem from being a part of her rich inner-circle. She brags about these perks to Carmen, though she then learns from Frances that her friends think she's rude because she's accepted several invitations to social events without extending any of her own. As such, Frances rectified the situation by telling everyone that Zoila is throwing a cocktail party on Friday; Zoila panics, not believing she has enough time to throw a party together before then, but Frances points out that her maid can just do all the work. Zoila proceeds to work hard to get everything ready and calls Carmen, offering to pay her to pretend to be her maid, and Carmen requests that her cousin's daughter Daniela be able to help, which Zoila is fine with. At the party, Zoila pretends she has a chateaux in Switzerland to impress the rich ladies while Carmen pretends to be her doting maid; Daniela, however, is late, and when she finally does turn up she is very drunk, meaning she spills all over Frances' expensive shirt. When she and Carmen refuse to apologize, Zoila is forced to fire them in front of everyone, with Frances expressing her sympathies about how hard it is to find good help. Zoila later goes to Carmen to apologize, and Carmen expresses her distaste for how Zoila's been acting.

Zoila dates Adrian Powell... ("Sweeping with the Enemy")

Zoila sees that Kyle has returned home from his trip and goes to see him, only for him to be under the impression that their romance fizzled out because they didn't talk for the entire time they were away; he then presents her with a scented candle - a parting gift to commemorate their brief time together - and Zoila, taken aback, tells her now ex-boyfriend that he just made it very easy for her to get over him. She proceeds to have lunch with Frances who points out that there are plenty of other eligible fish in the sea, then trying to set Zoila up with the recently separated Adrian Powell. Fearing that Adrian may recognize her, Zoila tries getting away but just ends up causing a scene, and then, when Adrian helps her to her feet following her falling over, he doesn't recognize her anyway. She informs Carmen and Rosie (who Carmen told about Zoila's new lifestyle) and accuses Adrian of being a racist little troll, for he met her at Genevieve's dozens of time but never took any notice because, back then, she was just "the help". Another dinner with Frances leads to an awkward date with Mr. Powell when Frances invites him to join them and then pretends to be sick so that she can leave, and Zoila confronts Adrian about his racism when he mixes up the waiters Carlos and Santiago. Adrian insists that he's classist as opposed to racist but Zoila sees this as just as reprehensible. However, despite her attitude, she herself ends up mistaking the two waiters, showing just how much of an effect her new lifestyle has had on her. Adrian proceeds to drive her home and walk her to her door, expressing an interest in seeing her again, but Zoila makes clear that the interest isn't mutual; however, he loves a challenge and plants a kiss on her anyway, to her shock. Frances watches from the window of her house and says how she knew those two would hit it off; Kyle watches too, seeming quite disheartened about the whole thing. ("Sweeping with the Enemy")

Zoila of course has no interest in seeing Adrian again, but later he approaches her in order to invite her to the Hamilton House Gala and she ends up saying yes while distracted with making sure the both of them are in the view of Kyle, so as to make him jealous. Evelyn later sees her husband at the gala while she is working and is shocked, not yet seeing who his date is. Unfortunately for him, he later introduces Zoila to his wife in an attempt to make her jealous, only for Evelyn to burst out laughing because he's on a date with Genevieve's maid. Adrian proceeds to drive Zoila home where she explains her situation to him, and he gallantly agrees to keep her secret out of sympathy and even goes on to hug her in a continual effort to antagonize Kyle's jealousy.

Zoila gets caught with Kyle on purpose. ("The Maid Who Knew Too Much")

Zoila and Kyle make love at his place for a change, though she is confused as to why they're still keeping things a secret from Frances. The need to keep this secret goes to ridiculous lengths when Frances returns home early from her trip, wanting to talk to her son about Ben, and Zoila is forced to climb out the window and onto the ledge, which she ends up falling from. She tells the girls, and Rosie suggests that she could make Frances find out by accident, which Zoila doesn't think is the worst idea. She later invites Adrian over, saying that the two of them are now friends, and requests that he make lunch plans with Frances only to then swiftly cancel so that she can catch Kyle and her in the act. Adrian loves the idea and agrees to help, though he is confused as to why Kyle would fear Frances. Later, Adrian carries out the plan and cancels on Frances at the last minute, meaning she returns home to discover Zoila in bed with her son. Zoila is certain that Frances won't really care that she and Kyle are seeing one another again, but suddenly the old woman turns cold and makes clear that Zoila is no longer welcome in her house. Kyle tries defending his mother to Zoila but she tells him that if he cannot stand up to her then the two of them are over, to Kyle's fear. As such, he proceeds to tell his mother to "go to hell" when she argues that Zoila is changing his personality and luring him away from she and The Circle; Zoila is happy to hear that Kyle "broke up" with his mother, though less happy to hear that he wants to move in with her because he has nowhere else to go.

All is finally forgiven... ("Blood, Sweat and Smears")

Rosie mentions having Genevieve join a cult in order to investigate it for her and tells her employer when Zoila expresses concern, making Genevieve think that, were she in real danger, Zoila would rush in to save her. Meanwhile, Zoila is living with Kyle, who she begins to realize can do nothing for himself, like make the bed, since it seems his mother did everything for him up until now. Adrian later meets with Zoila though decides to leave so that she can talk to Genevieve, who keeps trying to call her; first, however, he arranges to have drinks with her later that evening. When Zoila finally answers her phone, she is shocked to hear that Genevieve is getting married, rushing over to the Delatour mansion where she learns that her former friend plans on marrying Fabian, a gay man from the cult she's in. Zoila doesn't believe that Genevieve could be so stupid as to actually go through with it, and then realizes that this is all a trick to get her to return. She vows never to forgive Genevieve for what she did and, when she returns home to Kyle, she is annoyed by all the mess he's producing. She goes on to meet Adrian for drinks and, when he asks what happened between she and Genevieve, she explains that she lost a baby and blames her former employer for making the wrong choice. Adrian understands completely, having blamed Evelyn for the death of Barrett, but ultimately convinces his friend that it's better to let go and forgive than to hold on to your anger and simply be miserable. As such, Zoila returns to Genevieve and tells her that she's decided to forgive her, and Genevieve is utterly overjoyed to be reunited with her best friend. Zoila later returns to Kyle and is happy to see that he's cleaned the house, even going as far as to make the bed; however, when the two of them start to have sex on it, she suddenly pictures Adrian in his place and has to stop, worried about what this might mean.

As part of her plan to dump Kyle, Zoila fabricates a crisis. ("I Saw the Shine")

Zoila wants to break up with Kyle, having briefly discussed her sexual fantasy about Adrian to Rosie at the same time that Rosie warned her that Kyle and Frances are involved in a cult; however, when Zoila tells Kyle that the romance in their relationship has faded, he takes this as a sign that he needs to step up his game, and not that she wants to end things with him. While going to meet with Genevieve, Zoila bumps into Adrian and refuses his offer to meet up later, still finding it very awkward. She tells Genevieve about her situation with Kyle and, to avoid breaking his heart, Genevieve suggests that Zoila get him back together with his mother so as to soften the blow. As such, Zoila goes to see Frances and tells her she'd like to break up with Kyle, which Frances is enthusiastic about, but Kyle won't return to her unless she blesses his relationship with Zoila, for he is still mad about that. To create an excuse for Kyle to talk to his mother, Zoila instigates a "crisis" by setting the curtains ablaze with one of Frances' many candles; they make up a story for Kyle about how Zoila saved Frances' life, and Frances blesses the relationship, with Zoila suggesting that Kyle move back in with his mother so as to preserve the romance they've been lacking. All seems to be going according to plan, until the firefighter wants to take a look at the attic and Kyle and Frances act all shady about it, not allowing him to do so. Rosie later tells Zoila about how she needs to find Peri's confessional video to learn Tucker's real father's identity, which Zoila believes might be in Frances' attic, since she and Kyle are so secretive about it. She agrees to snoop around, right before she's startled by the unexpected arrival of her employer, Fiona Gladhart. ("I Saw the Shine")

Zoila is exposed as the devious maid she is. ("Much Ado About Buffing")

Fiona is back and Zoila has to work when Kyle visits, and she pretends that the woman who is in fact her boss is actually her ill house guest, then wanting him to leave so that he doesn't catch said illness. Fiona, who's worried that her clothes appear to have been stretched out by a "great big fat person", proceeds to lay down a set of rules for her maid, which include her having no personal visitors and having to wear a uniform. Zoila still intends on snooping around Frances' attic, on Rosie's behalf, so that she can find the video of Peri confessing who raped her; however, when Kyle and Frances go out to dinner later, Zoila is delayed in sneaking over because she first has to whip up a frittata for her jet-lagged employer. She calls Rosie to explain the delay, then managing to search the attic and discover a locked cabinet. She suspects that the videos are in there but has no time to investigate further because Kyle and Frances arrive home abruptly. Frances is already mad about the fact that Zoila has yet to dump Kyle, and is madder still when she discovers Zoila in her house, in a maid's uniform, pretending to be roleplaying for Kyle. Zoila promptly leaves but, later, Frances comes to her house to berate her for not breaking up with Kyle yet. To cover her uniform, Zoila throws on Fiona's robe, which Fiona catches her wearing while she's still talking to Frances. She forces Zoila to remove it in front of her friend and Frances comes to the realization that Zoila has been lying to she and her son this entire time. Kyle confronts her over this after being told the truth by his mother and Zoila confronts him in turn regarding The Circle. She explains that Spence is innocent and that they need Peri's video but he refuses to betray his mother for her, to her dismay. He and Frances proceed to leave in the middle of the night, to Zoila's shock, and they take everything with them.

Later, when Fiona mentions having seen the handsome neighbor next door, Zoila rushes over because she thinks Kyle will be there. Meanwhile, she has a piece of mail, and Fiona throws it into the trash. Zoila is soon taken aback to discover that the man next door isn't Kyle, but Spence, who's escaped prison and is now hiding out with Kill Face. Zoila offers to bring he and his fugitive friend some food to sate them in their hideout; as she goes home to collect said food, she discovers her mail in the trash - an envelope from Kyle, containing the USB with the video of Peri confessing all her secrets. Knowing this to be crucial in finding out the real killer, Zoila rushes it over to Marisol's house, where Rosie learns from the video that the real killer is Gail Fleming. Gail is then taken down, while Zoila returns home and panics when she sees Fiona watching a news report about Spence having escaped, and she comes to realize that he's the man she saw skulking around next door earlier. Zoila, deciding she'd rather be fired, snatches Fiona's phone before she can call the police and rushes over to warn Spence that his cover's been blown. The cops soon arrive and Kill Face thinks Zoila is to blame, wanting to shoot her; Spence tries to stop his friend from doing this, and a struggle ensues, and Spence ends up shot. However, his name has been cleared and he's free to go. Zoila then returns to work for Genevieve with the new rule that they can't get too wrapped up in each other's lives, meaning Zoila can't comment when Genevieve starts dating a woman named Lori.
