‘The Cleaning Lady’ 2×04 Review: “Bahala Na”
This episode had it all! Well, almost. It certainly came pretty close to having it all. Arman and Thony did some major flirting and checking each other out, Nadia seems to be having a fine time with Robert, and Thony was a bit brutal. Plus, the whole issue with the motel manager is now dealt with. So that’s something. But a Armony kiss would certainly have made things better. Oh well, I suppose we can’t have it all every episode. Besides, everything else going on certainly made this one entertaining. So keep reading for The Cleaning Lady 2×04 review!
I love that Fiona could so easily see the bond between Thony and Arman. She could immediately tell that Arman made Thony feel safe and being around him gave her more self confidence. And while she didn’t say it, I do feel like she sees something more happening between the two of them. Which she clearly understood if her reaction to seeing Arman for the first time was any indication. I love that Arman also made a point to look Fi in the eyes and tell her that he was going to do whatever he had to in order to make sure her family was safe. And more than that, it wasn’t an empty promise. Arman followed through and did what was necessary by taking care of the motel manager permanently.
Okay, let’s take a second and indulge in the amazing Armony content that we got in this episode. Thony saying that Arman always comes when she calls him had me grinning. And then when he asked her if she tied up the motel manager and told her he saw she had learned some things when she told him she did. That smile he gave her was so flirty. Is it crazy for me to find them adorable when they are threatening a man with murder and torture? Probably. But it is adorable. And there is no way Thony would have had the confidence to threaten that man like that if Arman hadn’t been there. Plus, the way he smirked at her with pride when she was doing it was freaking adorable too. I just want them together already.
Trouble With Robert
I don’t think Robert is going to give up on his obvious pursuit of Nadia. He clearly still has feelings for her and has made it pretty obvious he would take her back in a heartbeat. And the two of them do kind of have a lot in common. They are both brutal. I just think Robert is a bit more up front about his brutality. Whereas Nadia keeps it under the surface most of the time and only shows it when absolutely necessary. But it’s definitely there and I think she’s actually just as terrifying as Robert, if not even more terrifying. Because I also think Nadia is cunning and she plans things out for the long game. Which is why I feel like her marriage to Arman, while there is some love there, is mostly a business arrangement.
When it comes to Arman, he’s made it clear he isn’t in the Robert fan club. And I for one cannot wait until he finds out what happened between Robert and Thony. When they were in the bathroom and he asked her if Robert had said something to her, I thought for sure she was going to tell him what went down. But I also understood why she didn’t. Thony knows damn well that Arman won’t tolerate someone treating her like that and going after Robert right now would only lead to more trouble from Robert I’m sure. So I guess Thony did the right thing. But Arman is going to find out eventually and I foresee him being pretty pissed off about it. Someone go write some fics for me to devour about it!
I really hope that he longer Thony sells the pharmaceutical drugs to people who need them, the closer they get to paying Robert off. Even though I don’t think he’s going to let Arman off the hook even after the debt is completely paid, it certainly can’t hurt. Plus it will give Arman some balance back when it comes to dealing with Robert for good. Right now I can tell he feels off kilter because of owing Robert money. He just got out from under Hayak’s thumb. So it makes sense that the last thing he would have wanted would to be right back under someone else’s. And now that Robert has Arman working for him in ways Arman clearly doesn’t agree with or want to do, it’s just going to keep getting worse.
