Episode Summary

When Abuela Elena leaves town for a few days, she entrusts an eager Maya with the care and feeding of her prized roses. Unfortunately, while Maya's heart is in the right place, she' too eager to grow the flowers quickly. Miguel simultaneously has his own distractions in the form of a newfound desire to wrestle and starts taking lessons from former luchador Gus "El Guamazo" Lopez. Rather an exciting luchador costume and learning show-wrestling moves, Gus teaches the boy the actual principles of wrestling (which more resembles baking in the man's bakery, to Miguel's chagrin). As Maya slowly destroys Elena's roses, Miguel gets frustrated at the slow training and quits. But when Maya's overzealous gardening leads to a flood of over-watering, Miguel hops into action using the moves Gus taught him to fix everything. At this, both children learn the value of patience and consistency – in gardening, wrestling, and life.moreless
