When reflecting on Sandoval's drama, Lala and Alex commended the Schwartz and Sandy's co-owner for navigating through all the backlash from his wrongdoing. 

"I don’t know if I could’ve done it," Lala says, adding, "And that's why I don’t want to use the word respect … but I just don’t know had I made a mistake like that I could’ve shown my face the way he did."

Alex agrees with Lala's remarks before asking her and James if they think Sandoval "benefitted" from his mistake.
