Jane the Virgin- Chapter Seventeen (1×17)

Published

on


Gosh, the weeks that Jane the Virgin isn’t on are completely unbearable aren’t they? We’re getting further and further into Jane’s pregnancy and homegirl is getting bigger and bigger– and she looks stunning with every added bump. But, this also means Jane must finally come to terms with the fact that she’s pregnant. It sounds pretty silly right? How could Jane not come to terms with something so obvious. Simple. She was in love with the idea. The idea of pregnancy, of motherhood, of being with Rafael. But when things suddenly become “real” that fantasy falls apart.

Rafael and Petra

When these two play, trouble is in the way. Now that the hotel is literally on their hands, Rafael has been at work a little more than usual. And his whole, I need to make the Marbella a big and known hotel has gotten to his head. The ex-husband and wife plan a huge party, but when Rafael’s party permits get lost and not approved, he convinces Petra to just go through with the party. You know, because cops aren’t going to crash. Well, they crash and the Marbella loses its liquor license and get a big ole’ fine. Anyone else think that Aaron (or Roman) is behind this? *Raises hand.*

Rafael and Jane

Rafael’s obsession with work and providing for his soon-to-be fam bam means he’s at work 24/7 and not with Jane for all the important things like lactating classes, deciding about a doula, etc.  Even worse, when Jane comes by to spend the night with Rafael and maybe do some baby talk, he’s drunk and mad about the outcome of the Marbella and flips out on Jane, basically telling her he feels suffocated and that he won’t be taking time off to take care of said baby. Which if you think about it really is his…. he wanted it, with Petra not Jane. This leaves Jane pretty confused about her feelings for Rafael. She knows she loves him but is that enough? It used to be… before the baby, but now, knowing he won’t be around things are put in a different perspective. Of course, Rafael apologizes but it’s too late… the damage has been done.

Jane’s Preparations

In order to get ready for the baby, Jane decides to babysit Andie’s baby. Remember Andie from Jane’s writing class…. and also Micheal’s ex-girlfirend, before Jane. Jane doesn’t know this, but apparently Andie does, which makes this all the more evil. She’s using Jane to help her win Michael back and I can’t help but wonder why a girl would stoop so low to hurt a pregnant girl who is being so sweet to her. My only guess is that Michael broke up with her because he fell for Jane and this is her trying to get back at Jane. It’s definitely going to come at the worst time now that Jane doesn’t know if Rafael is the baby daddy she needs and might begin missing Michael. Ah the heart, such a complicated little organ!

Xo, Rogelio, Michael and Abuela

Hands down Rogelio is the best character on the show, especially because he cannot figure out what Xo wants from him this week. Hint: she just wants to hear that he loves her. Well… he doesn’t. Not until he gets the seal of approval from his mommy, who Xo happens to hate. Ay karramba! Thankfully, this Xo storyline led to the best moment of all- Rogelio getting pedicures and going to a party with his new bro, homie-dude Michael. Also, Abuela and Xo were still fighting because Xo moved out with her bf before they got engaged. Everything eventually turned out okay when they all realized the reason they fight so much is because of their maternal instincts. You never stop being a parent!

Aaron and Petra

These two have been getting super close and I suspected it’s because Aaron was really Roman. Turns out, I’m right. There was a spark between Petra and Aaron during lunch, which made me think she got a feeling that A was really R. Then, when she kissed him in the hotel room and pretended to be drunk, she was really just checking to make sure her instincts were on point. But they definitely were when she saw that A actually had the mole R had. But how is this possible and why? I’m assuming that Aaron came from India to visit his brother Roman, who then threw him off the balcony and killed him, taking his identity to get back at Petra and Rafael. He had reason to hate both of them right? Can we secretly hope he’s connected to Sin Rostro cause it seems like we totally gave up on that storyline!

Once Petra realizes the truth, she goes to tell Rafael the truth. We know she’s been having feelings for her ex-husband again. Will this be the thing that brings them together again? Will Jane return to Michael? Gosh, love is really so fricking complicated!

Memorable Moments

  • Rogelio saying he’s #teamMichael but has to be #TeamJane. Yes! Yes! Yes!
  • Everything about Rogelio’s bromance with Michael.
  • Angry Rafael is a scary Rafael. I never want to see that again!
  • Jane and the baby was super cute because you could just tell she had that maternal instinct.
  • Also, her 6-year-old child from the future…. kind of creepy!

TV Shows to Binge During Your Self-Quarantine and Social Distancing

TV Shows to watch While Working from Home Coronavirus

In case you haven’t been keeping up with global news, coronavirus, COVID-19, is forcing everyone to practice the 2020 version of”conscious uncoupling” known as “social distancing.”

Many cities/states are on lockdown with bars, restaurants, and other establishments closing their doors to keep the outbreak from spreading even more than it has.

If you’ve found yourself self-quarantined at home on the couch to prevent the spread of germs, you’ll likely be looking for things to keep yourself occupied.

Many shows have shuttered production with daytime and late-night talk shows going sans audiences or completely dark for the remainder of the month.

And this means it’s the perfect time to binge-watch those shows you’ve been putting off.

Here are some shows to watch during your self-quarantine.

 

Scandal

What the world needs now is a fixer who could tell us all how to get out of this mess. Since that’s not possible, we have the next best thing in Olivia Pope, DC’s fixer and right-hand to the President, who is also in a torrid love affair with him. It’s political, dramatic, and sexy as hell to this day.

 

Timeless

Don’t you wish we could all travel back to a time before the coronavirus? Same. Maybe if we had a time machine like Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus, we totally could. But alas, we’ll have to settle for watching their journey through key historical moments as they attempt to stop Rittenhouse from destroying the world.

 

 

Locke & Key

Think Harry Potter meets Narnia. Netflix’s new fantasy thriller finds a family moving into a mansion following their father’s death where they learn that it’s filled with secret keys that open up portals to other dimensions. You never know where you’ll end up, but it’ll make you forget you’re curled up on your couch amidst a toilet-paper shortage.

 

Mr. Robot

Elliot works as a cybersecurity engineer by day and doubles as a vigilante hacker by night. When he’s recruited by a mysterious underground organization, he’s forced to do things that make him question his personal beliefs, his morals, and most importantly, what’s real and what isn’t.

Financial burdens (like the fact that you spent all your money stocking up on canned goods and paper towels) plague three suburban moms who are tired of always playing “catch up.” They decide to take matters into their own hands and rob a grocery store. Soon, they find themselves trying to navigate a world of crime that has absolutely no rules. As they try to survive, their actions will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Stranger Things

You’ve already heard of Stranger Things, and if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s high time you do. The series takes place in 1980s Indiana and follows a group of young friends who become privy to supernatural happening within the government.

Grey’s Anatomy

There’s no better time than during a quarantine to watch all 16 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. Honestly, when else are you going to have the time? All you need to know is that it’s a medical drama, there’s a doctor named McDreamy, and Shonda Rhimes is the boss babe behind it.

 

The Good Place 

The Good Place is a stroke of comedic genius mixed with some of the most insightful and wholesome storytelling of our generation. It’s also the only series that had the perfect series finale (fight me, but after coronavirus cause there’s a no-touching ban). Eleanor Shellstrop is shocked to find herself in the Good Place following her death and immediately realizes she’s there by mistake. No one is prepared for her hilarious afterlife antics as she hides from architect Michael and her new friends while trying to become a better version of herself.

Don’t be deterred by the plot — a young Latina woman learns she’s pregnant after she’s accidentally artificially inseminated. The series weaves together the best parts of a telenovela while adding heart, feshed-out characters, strong female leads, irresistible love interests, and family at the forefront of every storyline.

 

Love is Blind

In the reality TV vein, Netflix delivered the world’s newest obsession. It’s a social experiment that many claim prepared our generation for dating throughout “social distancing.” Love is Blind forces a handful of contestants to meet people while isolated in pods. Once they find their “soulmate,” they propose to them without meeting face-to-face and a few weeks later, walk down the aisle.

 

YOU

If you’re not familiar with Joe Goldberg, you’re missing out. YOU is a suspenseful thriller that digs into the mind of an obsessed serial killer and follows his romantic relationships.

 

Game of Thrones

Similarly to Greys Anatomy, when else are you going to find the time to watch all of Game of Thrones? This is the perfect time to dig into a pop culture phenomenon so you know what “winter is coming” means the next time someone mentions it.

 

The Marvelous Ms. Maisel

If there’s anyone that can cheer you up and put a smile on your face, it’s Ms. Maisel. Set in the late 1950s, Miriam aka “Midge” breaks the rules and pursues a career in stand-up comedy. While it’s unheard of for women of her class to pursue a career, it’s even more unheard of a woman succeeding in such an industry. But leave it to Midge to prove everyone wrong and do it with flair and style!

Binge. Enjoy. And wash your hands!

Jane the Virgin Chapter One Hundred Series Finale Review

Be brave.

That’s what Rafael told Jane when he first met her on Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 1, and five seasons later, the theme of braveness continued on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 19.

It should be noted that I had to tell myself to be brave while writing this review and wiping away so many happy tears.

As far as series finales go, Jane the Virgin’s hit every mark and was a treat for longtime fans.

One would say it was the inverse of what made Jane the Virgin such a household name; it bypassed the usual telenovela-twists and opted for happy endings all around.

There will always be things that I wish would have happened, but confined to a one-hour window, the finale was pretty perfect.

Jane The Virgin Chapter Ninety-Eight Review

How do we say goodbye?

Xiomara posed that very question at the end of Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 17, and nothing sums up my feelings more succinctly.

We’re almost at the end, and despite this being the weakest season to date, it’s still bittersweet.

Look, nothing against anyone on the Jane the Virgin team.

Putting together a final season is a tall order, and appeasing everyone is nearly impossible.

We’re always going to have a bone to pick with something. That’s just life.

Nevertheless, I’m enjoying this strange ride for what it is and soaking up these last moments with the Gloriana Villaneuva family.

The realistic moments of the episode were really great, but the moments that leaned heavily into telenovela territory fell short.

Rose’s masterplan was revealed and to be honest, it was lame and non-existent.

Everything she’s ever done was motivated by her love for Luisa.

She broke out of jail and created an army of minions in order to be with her one true love.

If Luisa hadn’t betrayed Rose, Rose wouldn’t have had any motive to come after Jane.

Rose has been an elusive and terrifying villain all these years, but she just felt like a run-of-the-mill villain when she ambushed Jane.

Yes, I was a nervous wreck the entire time, but only because I expected Rose to already have people at Mateo’s school waiting for him or something.

Did anyone even know where Mateo was at the time? And why did no one come to check in on Jane?

Then, Rose’s grand plan was to sneak into the This Is Mars party essentially wearing alien costumes from Spirit Halloween.

What happened to the plastic surgery genius who could change her appearance at the snap of her fingers?

The one who befriended Michael as Susanna and faked his whole death?

We needed that Rose to come out and play.
