MAKING THE EFFORT – Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) interview potential babysitters to help take some of the pressure off everyone, but Jane has specific and lengthy requirements. Jane attends her graduate school’s Christmas party in hopes of finding the perfect writing advisor, but things don’t go quite as planned.
Rogelio (Jaime Camil) is faced with a tough decision about the direction of his life. Petra (Yael Grobglas) wants a friendship with Jane, but her mother’s antics once again thwart those efforts. Meanwhile, Michael’s (Brett Dier) suspicions have turned out to be true and he thinks he has discovered a lead on a possible rival to Sin Rostro.
