The only available job is at Value Maids, a cleaning company where she is hired by the owner on a trial basis. Her first cleaning job is at a lavish home on Fisher Island owned by the wealthy Regina. Alex has her manic, freewheeling mother Paula - babysit Maddy. After returning from her shift, she finds out that Paula has returned Maddy to Sean. Alex rushes to Sean's trailer and takes Maddy back despite his protests. Her boss, Yolanda, calls to report that Regina was not happy with her cleaning. Alex opts to return to complete the job, but she and Maddy get into a car crash on the way there.

Alex loses her court case and Sean is granted full custody of Maddy until the court reconvenes in seven days. Danielle learns that Regina never paid Alex for her cleaning shift, and helps Alex steal Regina's dog. Regina is initially irate and threatens to call the police, but Alex stands up to her, making her feel guilty. Regina later sends the full payment to Alex. To Alex's shock, she discovers that Danielle has checked herself out of the shelter to return to her ex. The shelters owner, Denise, informs her that most women finally leave after 7 attempts and that she herself, left her abusive ex-husband, after 5.

Alex attempts to obtain a statement from her mother Paula as a character witness to attest to Alex's fitness as a parent, but Paula is inattentive and the two have a bitter argument.

She visits Hank, hoping to use him as a character witness of Sean's abuse and asks him to testify that he witnessed Sean's abuse, but Hank refuses, empathizing instead with Sean's struggles with alcoholism. After yelling at Maddy and causing her to have a meltdown during their visitation, Sean admits to Alex that his alcoholism is endangering Maddy and making him unfit to be a father. He signs over full custody of Maddy and drops the court case.

Reception

Audience viewership

[edit]

According to Netflix, Maid has been viewed by estimated 67 million households,[18] becoming the streaming service's fourth most-watched show in 2021.[19][20] In the streaming rankings for the week of October 4 to 10, Maid doubled its viewing time from the previous week and climbed to second place behind Squid Game with 1.9 billion minutes of viewing time.[21] The series was watched for 469.09 million hours in the first 28 days of release.[22]

Specifically, in the Netflix's Top 10 TV English titles ranking, during its debut week, Maid placed at number two just two days after its release with 61.08 million hours viewed.[23] The following week, it topped the chart and garnered 166.52 million viewing hours.[24] In its third week, it ranked at number two and generated 129.28 million viewing hours.[25] The series remained in the chart for 13 weeks until December 26, 2021.[26]

Critical response

[edit]

Of the 49 reviews on the website Rotten Tomatoes for the series, 94 percent were positive with an average rating of 8.2/10. The website's critics consensus reads, "Maid takes great care with its sensitive subject matter to craft a drama that is not always easy to watch, but undeniably powerful, grounded by an outstanding performance by Margaret Qualley."[27] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 82 out of 100 based on 19 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[1]

Kristen Lopez of IndieWire gave the series an A and wrote, "We need more stories like this and, hands down, Maid deserves all the acclaim it gets."[28] Reviewing the series for Rolling Stone, Alan Sepinwall gave a rating of four out of five stars and said, "Parts of it are deliberately difficult to get through, yet the show is surprisingly watchable given the nature of the story, and at times even light and charming. Much of this is a credit to Qualley, who delivers a movie-star-level performance."[29]

Violence researcher Margunn Bjørnholt wrote that the series has received praise for "the way it depicts the violence and for painting a nuanced picture of the violent boyfriend."[30]

The American Film Institute named the series one of the ten best television programs of the year.[5]
