And in case you weren’t sure what was going on in the first episode:

  • Since they’re starting at the end, we already know Rey’s going to play for El Tri.
  • Back up ten years and Tita’s dad thinks they need to go to Mexico City so Rey can get into a professional fútbol program.
  • To raise money, the family throws a dance/party and sells raffle tickets for a motorcycle.
  • Waldo owes the guys in hats’ bosses money, but he’s been lying to Tita and telling her that he’s been going off on jobs and people haven’t paid him yet.
  • Waldo takes off the morning of the raffle saying he’s going to sell his boat, what’s left of his catch, and pick up the motorcycle for the raffle.
  • The guys in hats threaten Tita and the kids if their boss doesn’t get his money.
  • When the family flees the dance, Tita finds out Waldo took all the raffle money. (So, technically, yeah, they’re all implicated in fraud. Thanks, Waldo.)
  • Tita and the kids are going to Mexico City and hoping her Tío Benito will help them.

Other miscellaneous info

  • The theme song is “Cuando nadie ve” by Morat.
  • Yes, that’s Carlos Ferro as the scruffy guy at the end, but from what they show in the entrada he cleans up good.
