Maid episode 4 recap

After Nate provides Alex with a car, he invites her over for thanksgiving. But she claims that she will be working for thanksgiving so will be unable to attend. She later buys some groceries with the little amount of money that she has. When Sean picks up Maddy, he’s angry that he is the one who has to buy her snacks and that she hasn’t had a nap.

Forming a small friendship with Regina, Alex uses the WiFi whilst Regina allows her to work on Thanksgiving since Alex will not charge a holiday rate. Alex attempts to go on a dating app but stops when she comes across Sean’s profile. After Sean cuts short her thanksgiving call to Maddy, Alex cleans Regina’s house. She drinks some of Regina’s wine, tries on her clothes, and invites a Tinder date, Wayne, over. Alex, however, claims that the house belongs to her father and stepmother. You just know that this is a big mistake.

As Alex chats with Wayne, as you would guess, Regina returns. Regina realizes that Alex has had some wine, but she is too miserable to care. Regina tells Alex that she is unable to have kids, even after spending $300,000 attempting to. But to help improve her failing marriage, she and her husband found a surrogate who is now pregnant with Regina’s son. But the process has left Regina feeling alone and now, her husband James has informed Regina that he wants a divorce. Regina advises Alex to never let anyone take advantage of her.

The ending

Alex starts writing Confessions of a Maid, where she documents that even the wealthy can be very miserable. Later, after she picks up Maddy she contacts Wayne and tells him the truth about who she really is.
