Like all Jane the Virgin episodes, this one began with a flashback to Jane at her own 21st birthday party. Hammered off of way too many shots, she answers the door to find Michael in his police uniform. This was how they met. He’s there because of a noise complaint and Jane thinks he’s the stripper. She pulls him inside, announcing the stripper has arrived. Her girlfriends gather around Michael and begin taking of his uniform. A way too excited Jane pulls out Michael’s gun and shoots it at the ceiling, realizing that it’s not fake and Michael is indeed a real cop. Later that night, after the party, Michael and Jane are watch a telenovela. Michael has to leave on police duty, but before he goes, they share a kiss.
At the hotel, Rafael opens the door to find Michael, two uniform cops and Petra. The cops arrest Rafael, and Petra, with her black eye, tells him she is “Sorry, but I had to tell them what you did.”
On her first day of school, the nuns introduce Jane to her classroom. Seated side by side are Jane’s two evil twin step-sisters, who are Rogelio’s step-daughters. They announce to the class and the nuns that Jane is an unwed, pregnant woman. This doesn’t sit right with the nuns. They take her into their office and Jane tells them the story of how she became pregnant to give her another chance, which they do. But only one more and after that she’s done. So, of course, the evil, twin step-sisters ruin it for Jane. They throw their tablet to the ground and stop on it, then cry wolf and claim that Jane broke it. This was the drama the nuns needed to let Jane go.
In the midst of all the craziness, Jane and Rafael still find time to have short, intimate moments together. For instance, the moment Rafael finally tells Jane that he has feelings for her. He says he “never had that type of connection with anyone” like he does with Jane. He calls it fate and destiny that they shared a kiss five years ago and now she’s having his baby. Jane doesn’t say anything but she’s thinking “What if it’s meant to be?”
With a heart full of forgiveness, Jane agrees to meet with Michael. He’s excited, and asks her to meet him at the marina where he is waiting with a boat and a romantic setting. He asks Jane to forgive him, which she does. But then she drops a bomb on him. (Can you hear the bomb dropping? That’s right.) Jane tells Michael “something has changed” and that she can’t be with him anymore. She gives him back the ring and leaves. (Queue the sound of the bomb exploding.)
Jane and Rafael are having one of those perfect moments again. Jane is seated outside under a tree when Rafael joins her. She tells him that she broke up with Michael. Rafael doesn’t say a word. Instead, he pulls Jane close and they kiss under the tree with white flower petals floating around them. Fate? Destiny? Or, soon to be disaster? We’ll soon find out next week.
