  • The episode is structured with a theme of three:
    • In her writing career, Jane needed guidance on three pivotal occasions; at each one, Rafael was there to support and inspire her
    • The trio of Jane, Alba and Xiomara and conversely, the trio of Rafael, Mateo and Rogelio
    • Jane asked Adam thrice if he was freaking out
  • Anezka is actually murdered in this episode
    • After Michael's funeral, Jane didn't see Patricia for about a year until she decided to write Snow Falling and went to ask Patricia for her blessing
    • Rafael is instrumental in changing Patricia's mind, ensuring her blessing of the book
    • Patricia asked for some space from Jane, because she blamed Jane for Michael's death
  • At Jane's second reading, Patricia shows up and apologises to Jane, explaining that she said hurtful things in her grief. She asks Jane to sign the book and says it's the first time she's felt Michael since he passed
  • Rafael gives Rogelio advice on his marriage, saying that Xo shouldn't run away but they should face their problems together
  • Rogelio tells Rafael that he considered him a charlatan when they met in 2014 and that he's holding on to that impression because he feels Jane and Rafael will inevitably get back together
  • Xiomara wants her and Ro to go to couples' counselling and Rogelio reluctantly agrees
