What I’m Watching: Jane the Virgin

Jane the Virgin: Season 3, Episode 18 “Chapter Sixty-Two” (B+)

This episode’s specific themed hook played out mostly in the background, but I did still enjoy that one brief scene with Xiomara, Alba, and Rogelio wearing wigs to look like characters from “Sex and the City” as a nod to Jane’s new online columnist gig. Sex was definitely on Jane’s mind, and she almost had a perfect opportunity for a wild night with Fabian when he stripped naked in mere moments. Unfortunately, leaving led to him getting way too into a serious relationship, filled with book recommendations and meals with his abuela. Jumping on the couch to profess his affection was a little much, and all Jane wanted was a fling anyway. My favorite Fabian moment was his pronunciation of “genre.” I’m very happy to see that Xiomara and Rogelio are increasingly on the same page as their views about their wedding change, and it’s a relief that at least one relationship is, at least for the moment, drama-free. It seems that Chuck might not be such a bad guy after all, though he did appear very villainy and creepy as soon as we knew the truth about him. I’m eager to see what happens with Rafael and Petra since that’s looking likelier to materialize by the minute. Mateo being told by other kids at school that he was artificial was an interesting jumping-off point for Jane and Rafael to have to tackle the conversation of just how he came into this world. I think they did a pretty good job in the end.
