'The Cleaning Lady' Episode 5: Thony finally joins hands with Arman against Garrett
Spoilers for ' The Cleaning Lady' Episode 5 'The Icebox'
Monday night's back and with it comes an exciting new episode of FOX's thrilling crime drama 'The Cleaning Lady'. Revolving around a doctor who works as a cleaner in Las Vegas for her son's treatment in the USA, the series showcases immigrants' plight as she delves into crime.
Previously on the 'Cleaning Lady', we saw FBI agent Garrett Miller (Oliver Hudson) stronghold Thony De La Rosa (Élodie Yung) into working for him with the threat of deportation. This causes her to spy on Arman Morales (Adan Canto) and his business dealings to gather evidence to incriminate him. Her employer is in dark but for how long? As the pressure builds Thony too is getting frustrated by the minute as Garrett forces her into dangerous situations, but she has to go on for the sake of her family. Here's what happened in the fifth episode of 'The Cleaning Lady'
Previously, we saw Garrett find Thony's necklace at a crime scene letting him know that something is up. The episode saw Thony and her cleaning worker friends get subjected to an ICE raid. Showing up later, we learn it was Garrett's doing and was a tactic to get Thony to cooperate. Giving her a smaller more discreet recording device she is once again forced to spy. Meanwhile, things haven't been going well for Arman either as he gets removed from a deal by his boss who partners with his daughter instead. The gangster has worked hard all of his life so this betrayal came as a setback.
While she cleans, Arman asks Thony to have a drink with him and enquires about her son's health and his kindness causes her to get emotional and tell him about her working with the FBI and how they nabbed her sister-in-law, Fiona (Martha Millan) as well as a friend. Taken aback he's extremely enraged and tells her to get out when she suggests working together to give the agent a bare amount of information to get her loved ones out. Later we see a frustrated Arman ask his boss to reconsider but is snubbed and put down as just the help. This insult served as the last straw which saw him change his mind.
Approaching Thony, he agrees to work together on the condition that he controls the narrative. His boss's laptop which held immense evidence was scrubbed but the remains will be enough to get him in trouble. With a plan that works to corner his boss and well as preventing Thony's friends from getting deported, the two finally join hands in a discreet partnership. But Garrett is no fool which poses the question - will they get caught? Watch on to find out!
'The Cleaning Lady' returns Monday at 9 pm ET on the FOX channel.
