Jane discovers Rafael is keeping a secret from her; Alba's big day finally arrives; Jane, Xo and Rogelio are ready to celebrate, but Alba has other plans; Petra and JR make a decision about their future that neither of them saw coming.
I was debating with a friend who isn’t a huge Petra fan (I personally LOVE Petra). She claims that Petra is too cruel and calculating to end up happy. She also says that the fact that she killed her own sister and lied to her girlfriend about it for so long proves that she’s a master manipulator and incapable of love.
I, on the other hand, believe that JR brings out a side of her that no one has seen before. She’s vulnerable, and cares a lot more than people see in her. And her pushing Anezka was just instinct to protect her daughters, and she wasn’t expecting JR to give up her job for her.
Ok so its Friday afternoon at work and I'm bored to say the least. Lets start a Rogelio thread. What's your favorite quote of his from the show and why? I'll start, Rogelio: 'don't worry I'm very easy to dress. Everything looks good on me. Except peach. I don't pop in peach.' just his facial expressions kill me tbh .. or every time he uses the word 'hashtag'
Her acting is sooo good in this show. I love her confidence yet how she's not afraid to take her guard down. Petra and her are also so hot together. I'd date her in a heartbeat and this is coming from a gay guy.
Guess she can turn people gay and straight again
Am I the only one who thinks the show says "have sex" too much? Lol I personally change up the terminology every now and then. If the topic came up with someone older (like Abuela) I would say "be intimate." With my girl friends I'd say I "hooked up" or "slept with" someone. And with past boyfriends I tend to pull some more creative ones like "wanna slap happies?" or "hey champ u putting out tonight?" Lol I can't be the only one that finds JtV's constant use of "let's have sex" almost unnatural?
I strongly believe that we weren't meant to like Micheal in the very early episodes. He came across as the typical, arrogant other half that served as a mere obstacle to Jane and Rafael.
I feel like this all turned around in the episode where Alba was in hospital and he helped stop her from being deported. This was the episode the narrator made the till his very last breath comment. It was here that he became more real and relatable.
After that his character went from strength to strength for me, to the point where I could honestly understand why Jane loved him. For example, the episode where Jane gave Angelica Harper a massage- the easy going conversation they had with eachother afterwards, just seemed so genuine and warm - no need for any passionate love scene, it just spoke for itself.
What are everyone's thoughts?
I've been thinking about this recently and I think that the show will end the same way as HIMYM did. I think that Micheal has parralels with Tracy (the mother) and Rafael is like Robin.
For those of you who haven't seen HIMYM. Ted the main character was telling the story of how he met his wife. Along the way, he falls in love with Robin, however, she is totally wrong for him. She wanted the big career, fame and to travel the world. Whereas Ted wanted to have children and get married, settle down. Their dreams were conflicted and they couldn't be together.
Years pass and Ted gets married and has children. Robin gets her career. Eventually the mother sadly dies. After a few years, Ted is ready to move on, this time with Robin, however this time, she is perfect for him. Both of them have achieved all that they ever wanted and they were now free to he together without resentment and without compromise. They were finally in a place where the relationship was right.
In doing so, no other relationships were worth any less. Ted loves the mother whole heartedly and Robin's marriage to Barney didn't mean any less because of it. It was all about timing and circumstances. At the time, all the choices made were what was best and what made them happiest, until eventually they were able to find their way back to one another.
This for me is how I see this show ending. Jane and Rafael are right for eachother, however at the time when they first got together, Rafael couldn't be who she needed to be. All the events that happened after they split up had enabled them to grow and change as people to get to the point where eventually, they were ready to be together.
Essentially we’re all going to feel bad about Jane choosing Rafael, but let’s face it Michael been gone too long. Although Michael and Jane are still married, she won’t let him back in. She loves Michael, but loves Mateo more. Plus there’s no getting rid of Rafael he’s the father of her child, and they truly love each other.
Ive noticed that the topic of who the narrator is has been hugely popular on here. There is a new thread on it quite regularly. I was wondering if a megathread could be made on it, so all the ideas can be be brought together, compared and discussed?
Edit. Megathread not Megsthread.
