Mike and Ximena took a walk together where Ximena clarified that she could not have a reverse tubal surgery because her tubes were cut and burned. They did not discuss alternatives and Mike told Ximena that he accepted that he could not have kids with her and said he would raise Juan and Harold like his own.

Later on, Mike took Ximena on a romantic mountain getaway, but things got awkward when Mike farted while making out with Ximena. They ended up going in the hot tub where Mike found out that Ximena had lived with a hitman who was her ex-boyfriend, and he threatened to kill her.

Jasmine dropped the news that she wanted to go on a $2500 four-day vacation in Panama and wanted Gino to pay for it.

Once Jasmine calmed down, Gino agreed to never say anything good about his exes. Jasmine then came at Gino with the secret she’s been keeping about being on birth control and not wanting to have kids with Gino yet.
