“Jane the Virgin” recap (1.18): Banish Your Doubts

on

The flashback takes us back to Easter, the Villanuevas’ favorite time of year. A young Jane has her doubts that Jesus actually resurrected from the dead. She confides in Abuela but Abuela convinces Jane that you have to “banish your doubts,” and to have faith.

These days Jane’s doubts are mainly about her relationship with Rafael. He is still heavily involved in his work. During child birth class, Rafael gets a work related phone call. He steps out in the middle of class, leaving Jane to finish the class alone.

Jane didn’t want to talk to Xiomara about her doubts with Rafael so she turns to Andie for advice. When Jane was with Michael, they wanted the same things. She’s beginning to realize that she and Rafael don’t really want the same things. Andie advises Jane not to do anything rash, that it’s probably hormones.

Rogelio’s mom, Liliana, is in town. Rogelio has some demands for his mother’s arrival: iron silk sheets, remove all red items from the kitchen, and lovingly display photos of her around the house. The reason Liliana dislikes Xiomara is because she walked in on them in the middle of getting it on. Liliana was shocked, knocked over a lamp which in turn electrocuted her cat and she’s never forgiven Xiomara for it.

A customer at the hotel is rude to Jane and threatens to have her fired. “I’d like to see you try,” Jane says and walks away. Come to find out, that rude customer is Alexis Falco, the city commissioner.

Upon learning that Jane is Rafael’s girlfriend, Alexis Falco decides that she isn’t up for dinner anymore.
