  • Maya: Eso es This means: "That's it!"

  • It's first confirmed here that Santiago came from Puerto Rico and that Rosa and Elena came from Mexico even though the previous two episodes at least hinted it.

  • First time we see the twins' maternal grandfather Ernesto, which is also the same name as Tito's father. (And since The Doubtful Prince shows that Elena remembers the latter from his childhood, that would make him Ernesto Jr. and the other Ernesto Sr.)
