Qué difícil es hablar el español
Since I was talking with matterofawesome about dialect differences, here’s a hilarious song about different words in Spanish (this version has English subtitles but it definitely helps if you speak some Spanish) because I went to link to it and I now have it stuck in my head. (Gonna tag itsnotliketherearehillshere too.)

Ep. 64 reflection
Jane’s POV- She’s witnessed her boyfriend flirting shamelessly with Emma. She’s mad and upset about that, and on top of that, Emma insulted her Aunt very publicly. She’s got all this anger about Frank that she’s not allowed to vent (at least openly) so she takes it out on Emma for a social faux pas (depending on how despicable you think what Emma did was). Her entire conversation with Emma is loaded with her opinions on Frank (and being quite similar to Emma, it fits) and uses this as a reason to leave (not just the company, but I’m guessing her relationship as well).
The way I see it, Jane always saw Emma as superficial and annoying. As soon as Jane starts working with her, Emma is bombarding her with really personally questions when Jane feels she’s never even spoken about surface level, ‘acquittance not yet friends’ stuff. Then her boyfriend shows up and is very similar to Emma, and seeing the two of the flirt when she has to hide how she’s really feeling was just the last straw.
Emma’s POV- Perhaps she already knows she was in the wrong about ‘the jams incident’, but having Jane quit over it seems a bit extreme. She doesn’t know Jane is in a secret relationship with Frank, so doesn’t know that that’s the real reason Jane is so mad. Lots of people have been lying to her about the real motives so she’s confused by her conversation with Jane- if Jane had said she was leaving because of what Emma did to Maddy, then that she could maybe understand. But Emma truly does believe she can help and change the world, so what Jane says is confusing and hurtful for all the wrong reasons.
In regards to Emma’s general behaviour towards Jane- she has always been jealous of Jane and has had to listen to Maddy repeatedly boasting about Jane’s achievements. Emma feels like she already knows Jane because she’s heard it all already from Maddy, so to her she doesn’t need to ask Jane superficial ‘getting to know you’ stuff. Despite her jealousy, Emma still wants to help people, so she asked prying questions (though she’s not perfect and doesn’t seem to realise there’s a difference between introverts and extroverts). She thought she was helping when really she was pushing Jane further away.
Now on to the argument with Alex. By this point Emma definitely knows she didn’t handle ‘the jams incident’ very well (“badly done, Emma”). More than anyone, she truly relies upon Alex’s opinion of her and hates disappointing him. He’s angry and is attacking her character as well as her conduct. She’s used to having arguments with him about similar things, but not normally to this scale. To her, Alex knows and accepts who she is and how she behaves. So for him to be that angry and have him leave like that is heart-breaking.
Alex’s POV- He is first and foremost insanely jealous of Frank and how he flirts with Emma. He’s madly in love with her, and has to stand aside watching her flirt with this guy Alex knows is not all he claims to be. And to top it all, Emma is really cruel to Maddy and didn’t seem remotely sorry at the time. He saw Emma and Frank laughing at this poor woman and can’t stand to see Emma behaving like this- he knows she can be so much better and he hates seeing how careless she has gotten since hanging out with Frank.
He’s not sure if he can stick around and watch her flirt with Frank and behave just as badly. He quite rightly calls her out on her behaviour- he’s done it many times before but never has he been so personally hurt by Emma’s actions. Perhaps taking a break from being around her may do him some good; that way he can get a grip on his own feeling towards her as well as avoid watching her falling in love with Frank.
