With Rafael (Justin Baldoni) focused on keeping Mateo safe, Anezka (Yael Grobglas), who is pretending to be Petra (Yael Grobglas), "helps" the cops with their investigation. However, it isn't long before everyone starts to notice that "Petra" is acting odd. Meanwhile, Rogelio (Jaime Camil) is trying to keep everything out of the press for Jane, but in order to do so finds himself in an awkward position and asks for Xo's (Andrea Navedo) help.
