Alarmingly, it has now been almost three years since the first episode of The Riveras
introduced the world to Adela Gaspar and Donatella the sea turtle (though almost nobody in the world noticed), both of whom are mentioned here on the same Cozumel beach where, apparently, all love-struck young Riveras take their soulmates to give them a damn good seeing-to. (I reiterate, this was also the setting for Jake's first attempt at an overall epilogue, but it never seems to end there!)
This time, Donatella doesn't wander into the intimate two-shot because (as explained) it is neither her season nor her life-stage to breed (though both of these are crazy long when they do
happen) - and I guess it isn't Kevin and Oscar's time to breed either!
They can be choosy about that; in fact, they have
to be. I was just thinking about whether we've seen a pregnancy announcement that wasn't a surprise, and of course, Rose is still on the way when this story takes place (in my head-canon she was planned, though this will never be made official, bar any additions to future stories that I really cannot imagine us making).
I don't think that we'll ever get confirmation of what Carl really thinks about the whole 'gay male nurse' thing - but of course, as this story reminds us, he let everyone know at the going-away party in no uncertain terms that he's learning to modify his views...
