This week’s episode of Jane the Virgin was a drama-filled one as usual. First, I want to give myself a pat on the back for one of my crazy theories being proven correct at the end of the episode! Besides the unexpected (to most) twist, much of this episode is centered on the relationships between the characters. The writers are playing topsy-turvy when it comes to our feelings about Jane’s romantic interests. It made sense at first that Jane belongs with Rafael, the father of her child, but now that they’re hitting a ton of bumps in their relationship, Michael is looking like a better prospect. Or should Jane just ditch the dudes and focus on herself and the baby?
I made a brief case for each team, but I really want to hear from you. Who do you think Jane should end up with? Vote in our poll and comment with your thoughts!
At the beginning of the season, there was a bit of mystery surrounding Michael. I can’t quite remember if that was ever revealed, besides that his brother is a very questionable person. Still, we have seen glimpses of Michael’s dark side. Now, the writers are torturing us with these loving and sweet flashbacks of Michael and Jane’s relationship. It’s so easy to see how happy they were, and if this weird twist of fate had never happened to Jane, they would still be together. Plus, his bromance with Rogelio is a big PLUS for his case.
Destiny! That’s all we saw at the beginning of the season. The “star-crossed lovers” thing has its major appeal, and just like Jane and Rafael, we got swept up in it. However, as quickly as they came together, it all seems to fall apart. They do come from different worlds and don’t see eye-to-eye on important decisions. If it wasn’t for the baby, would they even be together? Would taking their relationship at slower pace work out? It’s hard to know. It also doesn’t help that he’s working close with Petra, who is still in love with him.
Jane’s romantic moments make us swoon, but it’s the moments she shares with her family that really hits home. Jane spent so much time in this episode feeling scared about how to raise this baby, especially since Rafael is too busy with work to invest time. She got worked up thinking that she would have to do it all alone, forgetting that she has both her mom and grandma there for her and the baby. Who needs a man when you already have an amazing support system like Xiomara and Abuelita?
