“Jane the Virgin” recap (1.14): The Greatest Love Story Ever Told

on

About five years ago, Jane had her future all planned out. A five year plan that included having a college degree, a job, and being married but without children. Rafael, on the other hand, was the polar opposite of Jane. Rafael had no life plans. While at dinner with Rafael and Luisa, Emilio demanded that Rafael get a job or he’d cut him off. Jane’s family is extremely proud of her, while Rafael’s father was extremely disappointed with him.

Five years later, we’re in the present time where Jane and Rafael are trying to register for baby items online. Michael interrupts to talk to Rafael about Sin Rostro. He breaks the news to Rafael that Rose is Sin Rostro. Michael explains about the underground plastic surgery ring, which they have reason to believe that Rose used to alter her own face. Jane views the interaction between Michael and Rafael as a telenovela where the two men slap each other over and carry on dramatic interactions.

Petra walks in wearing a fierce white dress and looking powerful. She tells Rafael she fired the manager and has other changes she wants to make now that she’s part owner. First on her list is to strip the Solano name from the hotel and make Rafael a silent partner, ridding him of his duties.

Jane goes to Rafael’s penthouse suite but finds him leaving from the room across from his penthouse. She overhears Rafael telling someone not to leave the room and to get some rest. Jane knows Rafael is hiding something from her. She can’t help but knock on the door to see who Rafael is hiding in that room. She gets a huge surprise when she sees Roman Zazo.

Michael sees her shortly after and notices she’s scared. Unable to lie to Michael, Jane tells him that she just saw Roman Zazo. They go up to the room and Roman tells them that he’s actually Aaron Zazo, Roman’s twin brother. Rafael invites the both of them in. Rafael hired a private investigator to find Aaron after Roman died. Aaron was at an orphanage in Mexico volunteering but had gotten kidnapped by the cartel.

Rafael breaks the news to Luisa that Rose is Sin Rostro. He finally believes Luisa and says how sorry he is for not believing her before.

Jane’s BFF at work, Lina, is planning a baby shower for her. Jane isn’t sure she even wants a baby shower since they can’t decide on whether or not they should have two of everything or one of everything.
