  • Alba is in the hospital but will recover. However, the hospital wants to deport Alba to Venezuela.
  • Emilio is acting suspiciously. He's going to Prague.
  • Emilio is planning to go away with Rose the following week.
  • Rafael is a suspect in the Sin Rostro case.
  • The Marbella is firing people. Jane and Lina fight over the layoffs.
  • Frankie, Lina, and Luca are sort of all implying that Jane is in a different societal class now, creating a divide between Jane and her friends. Jane originally got Frankie her job at The Marbella.
  • Rose visits Luisa in the mental hospital and Luisa and Rose sleep together again.
  • Xiomara and Jane speak only Spanish together for the first time, so the police officer wouldn't understand them.

  • Emilio has a house in Croatia – named Alegria.
  • Ivan escapes amidst the chaos of the hurricane.
  • Jane mentions to Rafael that she and Frankie go way back.


  • It's 2015, so Jane and Rafael have been together for almost 8 months, which doesn't add up re: the pregnancy. But, according to the Narrator, their kiss took place in early May 2014, so if it's 2015 now, that is the timeline.
  • The facelift x-rays are dated January 12, 2015, the day the Serbian war criminal vanished from his room.


  • Filming started on October 13, 2014
