But things never go as expected on the FOX thriller, so read on to know what happened on tonight's episode of 'The Cleaning Lady'.
Episode 8 saw Thony (Elodie Yung) along with Arman (Adan Canto), Luca and the organ donor arrive safely at the Mexican medical center. The hospital is posher than she expected with them receiving 5 stars like treatment at the hotel that houses guests. While having a chat with the head, Thony learns about the various treatments like plastic surgery, liposuction, and other non-medical procedures that take place here. Although this casts doubt in her head, the personnel assures her that at its core it's a hospital that boasts of the best medical experts that care about their patients. But after Arman leaves due to an emergency, Thony's worst nightmare comes true when she is informed that Luca's surgery has been postponed. Although she lashes out at the head for giving preference to rich 'clientele' over a 5-year old whose life is on the line, nothing can be done.
But the desperate mother is not one to take this sitting down and resorts to inducing a state that causes Luca's stats to show alarming results. This was so she could do the surgery herself as she was a cardiothoracic surgeon back in her hometown. She is met with resistance at first but after threatening the staff with Arman's name she is allowed to proceed. Although a bit rusty, the mother successfully operates on her son and does the transplant successfully, thus saving his life. Being praised by the donor for being 'so gangsta', she finally achieves what she has wanted for her ailing kid, only breaking down with relief later on.
'The Cleaning Lady' returns Monday at 9 pm ET on the FOX channel.
