  • Xo asks Rogelio to marry him and he accepts!
  • Lina is engaged to Danny Zhao and lives in New York!
  • Jane warns Rafael to be sure about his feelings for Petra, as she doesn't want to see Petra get hurt again as it took Petra a long time to get over Rafael.
  • Fabian stated that he has had sex before, so he is not a virgin, but he is still waiting for a serious commitment before having sex again.
  • Fabian made an album, although he can't sing and he is also a champion checkers player. He is also religious.
  • Alba decides to march for immigrant rights!
  • Mateo gets sad because he overhears Alba talking about the risks of having her green card taken away if she marches.


  • There are similarities between Fabian and Jane's moment at the end of their date and Jane and Rafael's first date, even in the narration, although The Narrator just says that it has potential, where he said Jane & Rafael's date was "the most romantic night ever"
  • Also, for the first time, the episode starts with Jane when she was young and her first kiss, but doesn't mention who her first kiss was with, wherein other similar narratives of past episodes, there has been a direct parallel. Here, there are only hints to when Jane and Rafael fell in love.


  • Jorge is undocumented. He was scammed by his immigration lawyer and lost his savings.
  • Lina and Jane lost touch because Lina didn't know how to be happy or sad around Jane.
  • Fabian has been dumped before because he won't have sex before a serious commitment.
  • Chuck may have murdered Scott! Chuck is JB (Jerky Bastard)!
  • In 2017, Petra fired Scott, then, pretending to be Scott, dumped Anežka via text and proceeded to pretend to be Anežka and broke up with Scott, to get Anežka out of her life for good.
