This week sees Jane’s life get even more complicated, an impressive feat considering she was accidentally artificially inseminated with her boss’ sperm only a few episodes ago. Now she’s having sexual fantasies about said boss, Rafael, and comes clean about them to her fiancé in front of her priest during marriage counselling in order to prepare for their upcoming marriage. It shouldn’t work, but it does.
The biggest emotional moment (among many – this is inspired by a telenovela, remember) came at the end of the episode when Jane discovered her father was Rogelio, the mega-famous star of her favourite telenovela. Showing how deftly Jane the Virgin can switch from melodrama and comedy, it was a heartbreaking moment as Jane sent Xo, Alba, and Rogelio away and collapsed crying in a wedding dress. Everything’s changing for Jane and this was one straw too many. It was a stellar performance from Gina Rodriguez and showed exactly why she deserved her Golden Globe win.
