Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane's Crazy Cousin Catalina came into town and surprised her with an impromptu family reunion. Catalina is fun, cool, hip, and possibly evil since all long-lost relatives tend to be in telenovela land...
Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane reached out to Alba's side of the family and now her crazy Catalina has showed up on her doorstep, ready for a family reunion? How do we know she's crazy? Long-lost relatives usually are in telenovela land...
Jane is no longer a virgin! Well, that's sort of old news compared to what's been going on with everyone else. New career changes: Rogelio is trying to become famous enough for a CW show which shouldn't be too hard since no one on the CW is truly famous...
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!
Xiomara crashes at Rogelio's, and in exchange for room and board, helps with his accent. It is sounding more American. Unfortunately, the American it sounds like is Matthew McConaughey, and this country doesn't need another one of those.
Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane and Michael got married! And we were about to lose “the Virgin” in the title, but then Michael got shot! Why did he get shot? He realized that his perky police partner Susanna…
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?
Jane and Petra, our resident baby mamas, are at the center of the drama. Jane accuses Petra's sister of a crime while Rogelio tries to impress his girlfriend and Rafael's no-good brother reveals that he's no-good. No such thing as a Hallmark moment in telenovela land.
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 Michael celebrate their upcoming wedding with bachelor/ette parties. Jane wants a quiet night but her crazy mother kicks off the drama. Michael wants a wild night but has to keep things in check when Rogelio organizes a spa day. There's fights, hijinks, and mistakes made but it's okay: just blame it on the alcohol.
In the beginning, God created the drama of the Villanueva family. Jane and Michael are House Hunters, but the perfect place is too far away. Rogelio is going overboard with wedding planning, Alba is still being wooed by Bad Luck Pablo, and Petra is having a hard time being a mother. Who will be their savior in telenovela land?
Everyone on "Jane Virgin" is wrapped in their own little bubble. Jane is so in love with Michael that she can't see Rafael is hurt. Xiomara can't see Rogelio is still hoping she'll change her mind about kids while Rogelio doesn't notice that there is something strange about his new assistant. Time to burst those bubbles, "Jane" cast!
Jane goes on a date with the hunky Professor Chavez, Xiomara contemplates freezing her eggs to make Rogelio happy, Michael makes one last play to catch Sin Rostro and Mutter. In telenovela land, you better use what you got if you want to gain everything. Or in Jane's case, lose something very important.
Lines are being crossed everywhere!
JANE THE VIRGIN: How Jane Got Her Groove Back (S2: E10)
Everyone's proud, prejudiced, or coddled in this episode. Glamma Liliana (guest star Rita Moreno) is too proud to admit the reason why Glampa isn't visiting, Jane's English students are prejudiced against learning, and Jane can't stop coddling Baby Mateo. Oh, and Petra's been framed for murder and the hunt for a drug lord is still on. Aren't you glad this show's back?
New Year's Eve is this Thursday, December 31st and it's fast approaching. As we look forward to the parties and making our resolutions, here are some of our favorite TV characters who should seriously consider some self-improvement this year.
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...
