On his way home, Pedro expresses his dissatisfaction with Ana implicating Ernesto in the money laundering case. Sofia visits Hugo in the hospital, where she has a flashback to her argument with Dani.

Marcos struggles to cope with Isabel’s absence and is unable to reach out to her. He speaks with his father, Arturo, who reassures him that Isabel will return.

While Flora accepts her suspension, she saves her partner Linda’s job by claiming responsibility for the situation. In a flashback, Flora attempts to investigate the fingerprints on the crime scene and discovers an unidentified print that she believes belongs to the killer of Jessica Thompson.
Meanwhile, Pedro grows disillusioned with his campaign and has a breakdown in front of his family. Marcos has thanksgiving dinner with his father but leaves early and tries to contact Sofia. Sofia meets Marcos at a bar and tries to bend the situation to her advantage as she desperately needs money. However, Marcos collapses in the bar from overuse of drugs.

Now & Then Episode 6 Ending: Why Did Ana Visit Dani? Did She Kill Dani?
In the episode’s final moments, Ana and Pedro prepare to go out for dinner and hash out their issues. However, Pedro learns from his babysitter that Ana had left the house by entrusting the children to the babysitter a few weeks ago. Pedro has no knowledge of the incident, and it becomes evident that Ana is hiding something from him. A flashback that picks up from a scene in the previous episode reveals that Ava had met Dani sometime before the latter’s death. The scene then shifts to Ava returning home that night with a cut on her forearm. The episode closes out as Ana washes the blood from her hand.
The episode’s ending strongly implies that Ana had some connection to the blackmail plot. The flashback depicts Ana visiting Dani at her home but does not shed light on the interaction between the duo. However, given the flashback we see in the previous episode, it is likely that Ana and Dani had some sort of argument that night. Moreover, the injury to Ana’s forearm is a clear sign of struggle and the blood hints that she might have had a physical altercation with Dani. Therefore, it is likely that Ana killed Dani in the heat of the moment.
The episode paints Ana’s actions in a new light. So far, it appeared that Ana and Pedro were a team, and they were working together to save themselves from being implicated in the blackmail and murder cases in which they are suspects. However, the sixth episode suggests that Ana has her own agenda and is hiding a dark secret from Pedro. Ultimately, what are Ana’s true motivations and plans remain to be seen. Nonetheless, Ana knows more about Dani’s mysterious death than she is letting on.
