“I would not be here today if it were not for how I grew up,” Myrla says in the first look, above. “The community, the environment of where we grew up molds us into who we are today and so I think it’s important for him to understand this is why I am who I am today,” she continues to share from a confessional segment.

Fresh off what appears to be a volleyball game, Myrla and Gil take a seat to chat and discuss the things from her past she wasn’t previously ready to face in her new marriage. Their chat begins on a light and fluffy note with her showing off her high school volleyball jersey.

Gil takes the opportunity to point out that she’s “old” when Myrla mentions the tee is 16 years old. The insight also leads him to ask about what her mother’s feelings were towards sports. What unfolds is a deep and meaningful chat between the spouses.
