At the hospital, Mia Rosales (Noemi Gonzalez) offers to relieve Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela), who’s sleeping at Lola’s bedside. He goes.

She promises to change and begs her to wake up; she’ll never forgive herself otherwise. In the doorway, Arturo hears – he thinks it sounded like she knows something the rest of them don’t. Abby appears. Mia just wants Lola’s forgiveness for the hurt she’s caused the family. They reassure her.
