Hi everybody!
I found this sentence in a book I'm reading: 'I was wondering what the protocol was when the guy whose bed you'd recently shared made the effort to track you down with his grilfriend in tow'. Could it be tranlsated to spanish as 'a la zaga'? Thank you!

    It means he brought his girlfriend with him. She might have been willing or unwilling to come, but he's the one who's actually doing the action in an active way. She's just accompanying him passively.
