What I’m Watching: Jane the Virgin

Jane the Virgin: Season 4, Episode 6 “Chapter Seventy” (B+)

This was a big episode, ending one relationship and another life. Watching with my wife and sister, we all agreed that we were never too fond of Adam since he didn’t have the appeal of a Michael or a Rafael. Deciding not to go to her show so that he wouldn’t be in any of the pictures because he was already set on moving to Los Angeles might have seemed like the nice thing to do, but he could have gone about it in a better way. Rafael tearing up after reading Jane’s acknowledgment to him suggests some hope for the rekindling of their relationship going forward since he has also cut himself off from all of Petra’s hotel drama. Madga and Anezka were doing a pretty terrible job of running the hotel into the ground, and Petra was smart to put the pieces together and realize that Carl had been real the whole time. Turning Anezka against her mother with that particular piece of information was a great play, but it doesn’t seem to have paid off for her dear sister, who appears to be dead, likely at her mother’s hands. My sister thinks Scott is still alive, but I’m not sure why he would have any grievance with Anezka. Fabian’s appearance was silly but entertaining, and Rogelio going overboard seems to have created a new issue in his marriage to Xiomara: his revelation that he had a suspicion Jane existed and still didn’t do anything about it. Let’s hope they can overcome that particular hurdle.
