I like that this episode doesn’t bother with the Latin Lover Narrator flashback to Jane’s childhood and how it relates thematically to her present day problems. She and Michael finally got the go-ahead to have sex and they’re going to do it, dammit!

The big day is finally here! Jane is ready to marry Michael (and lose her v-card) but obstacles are in the way: she needs to change her thesis, Xiomara and Rogelio are fighting, and Rafael is secretly in love with her. Will Jane get to say ‘I do’? Or will the hijinks in Telenovela Land keep her from walking down the aisle?
Everyone’s getting fired up–or just plain fired. Jane and Michael face money troubles so Jane takes on a new side job to bring in some cash, which cuts into quality time with Mateo and creates a heated custody battle with Rafael. Meanwhile, Anezka and Xiomara compete for “Worst Employee” as they start new jobs.
Jane and Xiomara are still fighting, but that’s not stopping Rogelio from coming up with a scheme to bring them back together. Petra’s twin sabotages a deal and Mateo’s first word causes conflict between Michael and Rafael. All these people need to save the drama for their mamas.
Pablo, Alba’s first love, is back in town and is spreading bad luck wherever he goes. Jane’s future in laws declare they hate her, Rogelio is still kidnapped, Petra doesn’t want to bond with her babies, and Rafael’s half brother Derek is being mysterious. Wait, those things can’t all be because of one man’s curse? In telenoveland, they can be.
It’s the motherload of telenovela tropes! Babies being born, hostages being held, a long-lost brother revealed, dramatic heart to heart conversations about love and sex and…accusations of plagiarism? Jane the Virgin runs down every big telenovela trope as Petra finally gives birth.
Lines are being crossed everywhere!
JANE THE VIRGIN: How Jane Got Her Groove Back (S2: E10)
It’s Christmas in Telenovelaland and the season is filled with drama instead of holiday cheer. Jane fights with Rafael over Christmas custody, Luisa tries to find her mother, and Petra tries to handle the guilt over killing a man.
Jane needs to find a baby sitter for Baby Mateo but maybe she should find one for the other people in her life who need managing: Rogelio, who can’t control his money; Petra, who has to keep hiding bodies; and Michael, who keeps digging into Sin Rostro when no one asks for that subplot.
A lot can happen in 28 days: grad school, Baby Mateo growing up, Petra’s pregnancy. Let’s see what the next set of 28 days will bring. And then the next…
Kidnapping rarely turns out to be as romantic as you think it will. Also, as Jane prepares for her baby’s baptism, she faces a difficult decision about whether or not to enter grad school.
