Nick agrees to be with her on the condition that she stop being friends with Santiago, and Lily agrees to his terms. Nick forgives Lily, and they reconcile.

When Jorge returns home, Lily informs him that Nick has forgiven her. Jorge expresses his disappointment  and tells her that, while Nick has forgiven her, he has not. Jorge lashes out at Lily, and they continue to trade insults and the episode comes to a close.

The Episode Review

The Diaz family’s Thanksgiving has been included in the episode, which is very entertaining. As usual, Jorge and Henry’s bond shines through. Miles and Sol have an argument in this episode, but the resolution is pleasant.

The love triangle plotline becomes increasingly ridiculous as the episodes progress. Having said that, it was a good move to showcase Jorge’s strong objections to his sister’s behaviour.
