ROAD BLOCKS — Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is feeling distant from Rafael (Justin Baldoni), so she focuses on her writing instead, but is stuck with a case of writer's block. When Jane runs into Michael (Brett Dier) he mentions a romance writing workshop, and she thinks she has found the solution. Petra (Yael Grobglas) has a solution to finding a musical performer for The Marbella's Calle Ocho celebration, but it forces Rafael to ask Rogelio (Jaime Camil) for help. Rogelio is struggling with his new character as a detective, so he gets the brilliant idea to shadow Michael for real cop experience. Meanwhile, Xo (Andrea Navedo) has made a decision about her life with Rogelio which causes a rift between her and Alba (Ivonne Coll).
