Notes and references

  1. Chapter Eighty-Two
  2. Chapter Twenty-Five — Xiomara's baptism took place when her father was 28 and Alba was 25. Ergo, it was in 1974, as Xo was born in May per the Narrator's statements and Mateo Villanueva was born in February 1946 and would already have turned 28 that year.
  3. Chapter Twenty-Seven
  4. Chapter Eleven — Rafael mentions that Xo's a Taurus
  5. 5.0 5.1 Chapter Thirty-One
  6. Chapter Nine
  7. Chapter Fifty-One
  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 Chapter Fifty-Four
  9. Pilot
  10. 10.0 10.1 Chapter Seven
  11. Chapter Five — Lina tells Jane that she and Billy have been dating 6 weeks, to which Jane says 'since my engagement party?'. That means Jane is 8 weeks pregnant at this time, and her kiss with Rafael two episodes later takes place in early May. Guesstimation indicates February is probable.
  12. Chapter Six
  13. Chapter Eight
  14. Chapter Ten
  15. Chapter Ninety-Seven
  16. Chapter Eighty-One
