Jane the Virgin- Letting Things Go (1×13)



Jane is much like me…. she likes to plan and be prepared. But sometimes, no matter how much you plan, life still throws you curveballs. This week, Jane was put to the test. What was supposed to be routine exam to find out the sex of the baby– Jane was 99% sure it was a girl– ended up taking an unexpected turn. The doctor found a bright spot on the babies heart and bowl, which could be a possible marker for some kind of disorders. The only was to tell is to get an amnio procedure done. The risk of that? Miscarriage.

Jane isn’t sure what the right thing to do is. Should she get the amnio? Should she not? After consulting Xo and Alba she figures she’s just going to let it go. Whatever happens, happens. But can Jane ever really let anything go? No! The next day she calls Rafael to let him know she’s changed her mind and that if her baby is to be sick, she wants to know in advance so they can be prepared. Rafael has really proven to be the greatest bf/baby daddy ever. Like a lot better than Michael would have been. He supports Jane in whatever she decides to do. They get the procedure done and it requires Jane to be on bed rest for the next 48-hours… which means, she’ll have to miss her graduation.

Despite having so much happening at the Marbela– his father disappeared, they think he’s Sin Rostro, Lochlan returned and informed Rafael he has to sell part of the hotel due to bad business– Rafael still manages to make Jane and the baby his number 1 priority. When she’s on bed rest, he’s on bed rest sleeping on a blow up mattress right next to her. And when she makes a selfless sacrifice to give up her own graduation for the baby, he throws her her very own graduation party in her bedroom. Sure, it was cheesy, but it’s the thought that counts. And there was a lot of thought. Rafael apparently spent the whole day in Target, although honestly if it was acceptable, who wouldn’t? I’m assuming we’ll find out the results of the amnio next week, but the sex of the baby will remain a mystery until Jane gives birth.

Now.. last week Sin Rostro was the biggest reveal of the night. While it wasn’t shocking, it was intriguing. This week, we got to see Rose in a different light… and no that wasn’t the reason her hair was looking a different color halfway in. Emilio’s assistant comes clean about where he really was that night to Nadine and Michael– he was on the boat having an affair. Yeah, who knew home boy had a whole girlfriend on the side? When they speak to Rose she’s utterly shocked that Emilio was cheating on her. Now I don’t feel as sorry for him knowing that he too played Rose at her own game. Rose confirms that she didn’t know Emilio was on the boat, all he told her was that he’d be working late in the office. After all, she has to put the “killer” at the scene of the crime, otherwise who would have killed the bell boy with that cork screw? But her story begins to fall apart when they talk to Whitney who tells them Rose definitely know Emilio was on the boat that night, she just assumed he was alone. However he didn’t really feel too bad lying to her because Rose was always dissapearing and not telling him where she was. Ding Ding Ding. Michael pieces the puzzle together to realize Rose had all the same access as Emilio. And when that bellboy died, he looked right at Rose and said Sin Rose-stro! I mean, we all missed it but it has literally been there in front of us the entire time. Raise your hand if you feel stupid. By this time, Rose has already vanished from the Marbela, leaving Michael really upset. They were so close!

Petra and Lochlan’s romance continues to move forward now that she knows Milos doesn’t mean no harm. But when he finds out she doesn’t want to be with him because she’s found another, his jealousy peaks. I guess that’s a good thing because he’s right there to save Petra when Lochlan dumps her, literally telling her as she’s about to get into the car for their vacation that she isn’t going and she’s not welcome in the hotel anymore. Karma is a b*tch. And he’s right about that. While things might be looking down for Petra in that moment, Milos comes to save the day. Isn’t it weird how his character took such a turn? He admits that he’s the guy that just bought a stake in the Marbela and he did it for her. But…. his gift comes with one requirement: they have to run it together. Milos hopes this might bring the ex-lovers together again, while Petra really has no choice but to accept the offer and stick it to Lochlan. What were we saying about karma? A part of me really just wants Petra to become independent and quit relying on a man. Maybe soon enough.

Rogelio has been getting on Xo’s last nerve, sulking around the house after being fired from Passions of Santos. Turns out, the roles haven’t been pouring in like he imagined they would. She encourages him to just get out there and audition. He comes home with a new lead role in a telenovela, but it’s in New Mexico, which means he’d have to move for a whole year, leaving them all behind. Tough situation for them both considering he loves her and Jane, but wants to get his career on track and she needs to let him be. Do you think he’ll end up moving?

Another highlight this week was Alba and her new crush. Truthfully, she’s such a breath of fresh air and wisdom for the show. Who else would get excited about putting on their track suit and going to rehab? But when Xo finds out about rehab man, Alba turns bright red and storms off. Later in the episode we find out Alba made a promise to her late husband that she would never fall in love with another man. It’s sweet, but Xo tells her it’s also ok to wan to be happy. He would have wanted it. 

And the night’s O-M-G moment. Zaz isn’t really dead. Did you let that sink in? Good. Now, Rafael knows that. Yep… which means he’s been lying to everyone. But why? Did they fake his death to get rid of Petra? It worked but Rafael also lost the hotel a lot of business. And where has Zaz been hanging out all of this time? And if he didn’t die… who was impaled on that ice sculpture? We all clearly saw it happen! What are your guesses? Let us know!

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.



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.



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.



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 (5×19)



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 (5×17)



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.
