“Jane the Virgin” recap (2.1): #Blessed

on

Welcome back, Virgins! I’m happy to be your recapper this season as we follow the lovely Jane Villanueva as she navigates new motherhood. Oh, who am I kidding? We’re here for Luisa and Sin Rostro! (Not that we don’t adore Jane, because she’s pretty much the best.)

We pick up right where we left off last season, when a fake nurse nabbed baby Mateo, just moments after birth. No one will be shocked to know that Sin Rostro was behind the kidnapping, but what could she want with little Mateo? We’re about to find out.

While Rafael and Jane are cooing over baby pics, Michael is drowning his sorrows at the local bar. Gotta say, Michael’s grown on me a lot. I’m kind of rooting for the guy.

Michael gets a fateful call from one Sin Rosetro telling him she has Jane’s baby and is willing to make a trade. She wants the Dragonfly brooch that Luisa took from her the night they got freaky in the mental hospital.

It’s been cataloged as evidence so Michael needs to get it and exchange it for the baby. Jane and Rafael find out right about the same time that Mateo has been kidnapped. Michael fills them in on the phone call and Jane insists on joining them on the hunt. Sure, she literally gave birth, but she’s not going to let that stop her. When Michael finds that the brooch is no longer in evidence, he calls Luisa. Of course she has it. Lesbians can’t help but keep a box of keepsakes from an ex. All is fine until Juicy, Luisa’s current squeeze, finds out about the box, and tosses everything (including the brooch) out the window.

When Michael, Jane and Rafael get there, Luisa is a blubbering mess and the brooch is somewhere at the bottom of the pool. Luckily Jane rescues it from the filter and they are one step closer to rescuing Mateo.

Michael meets up with Nadine, his ex and one of Sin Roseto’s minions. Before she hands over Mateo, she tells Michael that inside the brooch is a chip that has all of the evidence he could ever want against Sin and everyone she’s helped with her plastic surgery ring. He is unfazed and makes the trade. Jane is overwhelmed with joy to see Mateo, but Michael doesn’t tell her about the choice he was given.
