The NarratorAs you may recall, when we last saw our father-daughter duo, a river ran through them-
RogelioShe's not a River - she's a swamp! She's worse than a swamp: she is a BOG!


  • Jorge and Alba finally marry!!!!
  • Jane becomes a telenovela writer.
  • Jane gifts Alba a framed flower, like the one Alba gave Jane to "protect" in order to remain a virgin until marriage.
    • This partially leads Alba and Jorge to marry the next day.
  • Mateo and Luisa meet for the first time
    • She tells Mateo she was traveling which is why they didn't meet until now
  • JR has been successfully spending time with the girls and has to spend time alone with them
  • JR tells Petra that the twins are spoiled, which Petra agrees they are
  • JR gets offered a job in the legal field, but it's in Houston, TX
  • There's a brief homage to The Shining twins, featuring Anna and Ellie


  • Alba and Jorge marry in the same church that Jane and Michael did, except it's the immediate family only for their wedding
  • Alba and Jorge start making out and stop when Alba sees the framed flower on her wall, just as Jane and Michael in the Pilot
  • Also like Michael and Jane, Alba and Jorge's first time having sex is depicted in a short animation segment — theirs in black and white, however, mostly.


  • When Jane was 11, she wanted to get her photo in the newspaper, in hope of that her dad would want to meet her.


  • Dennis calls Rafael, while he is with Luisa and Mateo. Rose funneled all her fail-safe money into Luisa's account, suggesting Rose and Luisa may still be in working together!
