Eh. I am never going to care about Jane and Rafael.

But I am glad that they stopped that nonsense of letting Mateo thinking that some lies are good. The little boy was scared that he was going to get caught and ruin things for his family. 

Since this is a telenovela, I am wording if grandpa Mateo faked his death.

I think either Rose and her mother are behind Petra's new lawyer.

This episode felt a little disjointed... But I enjoyed it anyway. 

So... Who hire that lawyer for Petra? Petra's mom? Rose? Luisa? 

I was annoyed that at the beginning of the episode, the writers were pulling Jane and Rafael apart, yet again... But I enjoyed what they did at the end. Very much so.

Alba calling Raf and Jane Jafael had me in stitches! En enjoy Alba's and Raf's friendship.

Glad the lying nonsense finally stopped.

Jane and Rafael could have avoided that whole weird playdate by just saying that they already had plans for that afternoon but that they would plan something later. Voila, no need to panic and redecorate her parents' house in two minutes.

I thought the other moms were going to say that they didn't live in the district either. Now what are the chances that Elijah will inadvertently blab to someone else that Mateo doesn't live there? I know it's supposedly fine now that Rafael has an apartment in the neighborhood (although I wonder if the school will allow that since Mateo lives primarily at Jane's house) but I can still see it becoming this big thing in the not so distant future. I can imagine Rogelio going to the school and trying to patch things up. I did briefly wonder about the mail Jane produced as her proof of residency. Did she just mail something to herself at Rogelio's address?

Jane and Rafael are going to be a thing now, which is basically what I've always suspected. I always figured they would turn out to be the End Game couple. Thats alright I guess, I prefer Jane with Raf over Jane with some random guy at least. I still dont think I am really over Jane/Michael yet. 

I feel like there was an easier way to deal with the play date and lying to the moms. Just say you have plans that afternoon? Anyway, its probably for the best to just get over it and get rid of the lying, its not healthy for Mateo to think lying is something that everyone just needs to do. I was totally expecting the mom to say they dont live in the district either, and to find out that nobody actually lives there who goes to that school. 

I am glad that Xo and Ro decided to go to therapy, and that they seem to be doing better now. I do think Xo was rather harsh on Rogelio for having a breakthrough about his issues with his childhood. I mean, she was the one who wanted them to get deeper, she opened the damn!

The series just did the most unrealistic thing ever. Petra not having an army of lawyers on speed dial! There's no way that is possible. She's rich. Raf had a right to be pissed at Petra. He still believed Carl was real and him and Luisa were on good terms. How long did she plan on keeping up that lie? How can Ro be a SAHD if he's in debt? TV is silly. This is the first time the series has ever let Xo tell us about her relationship with her father. I loved it. I loved most their scenes. Alba was so meta in this episode. I freaking loved it. Of course I loved all the R/J scenes. But man that final scene. It's on my list of favorite ship moments ever. Mateo just had to ruin it! Dude, we were very close to sex! lol But I still love his bad adorable self. Lying so your child could get the best education possible is not a bad thing. Five year olds are too young to understand that. In real life many kids go to school outside of their district. They use other folks address. People they know. Those nude pictures in the bathroom killed me. That was new actress playing young Jane since the original one is older now. The original young Jane still plays teen Jane. People paid to kiss Raf in college. Of course they did. Have you seen that guy?! lol I loved the chemistry test. They have in spades.

I'm not sure what to think about Jane and Rafael. She only changed her mind about dating him when he started kissing her neck, so I'm inclined to think that this is just about her wanting to have sex. I'm not entirely convinced that she really wants to have a relationship with Rafael at this point. If the writers really are putting them together this time, I hope that means the series is winding down because I'm not up for more breakups and make-ups between those two.

I agree. But the line at the end by one of the moms, "Now you can return the house to the porn-star couple who live here" was worth all my second-hand embarrassment.

As the episode went on, I realized I didn't actually care about any stuff other than what's going on with Petra. And apparently it's even more and more and friggin' more torture for her, so I don't care about that either.

I'm jumping the ship here.

I still can't get past "Baby".

I kept wondering why nobody was using the baby's name and then I remembered that Baby was the baby's name. I wish they'd named that child pretty much anything else.
