—Ro to Xo, about Darci


  • Rafael takes a DNA test which confirms that Emilio and Elena are not his biological parents
  • Rafael and Jane talk about Catalina's reveal and that they're not sure they trust her
  • Michael quits his job impulsively after getting frustrated with not having access to all the work he has done. He's getting a 6-month severance package
  • Michael realizes he wants to be a lawyer, though The Narrator says 'alas...' indicating it doesn't happen. This is the second indication in this season that something happens to Michael/his and Jane's marriage.
  • Darci and Rogelio have known each other for two weeks
  • Rafael condescendingly calls Petra paranoid when she's suspicious he's working with Scott
  • Petra poses as Anežka and finds out that Scott did work with Rafael.
  • Petra confronts Rafael and threatens him again


  • Rafael finds an addendum to Emilio's will, which specifies his heirs to be his biological children.
  • Petra puts surveillance cameras in Rafael's apartment and knows about the addendum.
  • Catalina is married to Arnaud Demonillier, heir to the Montagues throne (34th in line). She married him spontaneously a few months prior and now wants a divorce. She also wanted to sell his mother's jewels, which he had gifted her, to a charity without telling him
