Matt Lopez's 'Promised Land' is packed with drama and wine. Not even a single scene goes without a new revelation and hidden secret or at least the dramatic music cue hinting towards a revelation soon. The episode introduces two storylines, one about Mexican teens and other about the rich and powerful people.

In 'Promised Land', the Mexican teens can unturn every stone and take up any risk to cross the border into the United States for working at a vineyard. On the other hand, rich and powerful people are the one owning the vineyard. The Sandoval family vineyard is headed by Joe (John Ortiz) and Lettie (Cecilia Suarez) and is looking forward to raising their business to another level. The young generation of the show is very entertaining and the anchor of the other storyline, Martin and Velez, brings warmth into the show's weightier material. The young generation of Sadovals is played by Christina Ochoa, Augusto Aguilera and Mariel Molino.
