Los Americanos

Michaela is reminded of the fragility of life and is thus anxious to find godparents for Katie when Guillermo Morales, a new neighbor, is killed by a mountain lion. She persuades the town council to hire Guillermo's widow, Teresa, as the new schoolteacher and tries to befriend her, so the Reverend can return to tending the spiritual needs of the town.

But Teresa, who distrusts gringos, blames Dr. Mike for her husband's death, and believes Michaela's behavior is unladylike because she does not stay home with her family. Grace wants to adopt Anthony, legally, but Robert E. is afraid that the adoption may reveal things about his past that he would rather remained hidden.
