BIG DECISIONS – When a slot opens up in the graduate program that Jane (Gina Rodriguez) has been waiting for, she is faced with her first big motherhood dilemma – leaving Mateo sooner than expected. Rafael (Justin Baldoni) is still reeling from Petra’s (Yael Grobglas) news as he tries to help plan Mateo’s baptism with Jane.
