Bilingual bonus: the orange truck that sells empanadas as well as "ropa vieja" (old/secondhand clothes).

I enjoyed the techie rivalry in this one. I miss having Aldis Hodge around on a regular basis, but we can have two techies too.

The debutante seemed a bit old to be a debutante, but her ceramicist ska boyfriend cracked me up. Like a young Patton Oswalt.

I thought they had resolved the tech rivalry between Hodge and Brianna last season, so that felt like warm-over leftovers to me. I did like the idea of Sophie having to come to terms with her Kiki persona again, but it seemed too easy.

['Ropa Vieja' is food; a tomato and beef based stew. It traditionally calls for flank steak, the falling-apart fibrous nature of which makes it look like you're cooking shredded rags.
"Mmm, smells delicious, what's for dinner?"
(with a smirk) 'Oh, I'm just boiling your Old Clothes.']

Sigh. Hardison not Hodge, but I hope everybody understood what I meant.
