'Jane the Virgin' fan react: Sin Rostro revealed!

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “Chapter 12″ | Aired Feb 2, 2015

If you are not caught up on Jane the Virgin, avert your eyes, because we are about to dive into major spoilers from tonight’s episode.

Not only did we finally get to see the real Sin Rostro, but we watched three beloved show characters die. Only one of them really did die; the other two … well, you know what happened.

Before we jump into Sin Rostro’s true identity (which, if you voted in last week’s poll, you know Lachlan was suspect No. 1), let’s talk about those three deaths!

Death No. 1: Petra

Petra, Petra, Petra. She had everybody fooled. In the earliest episodes of Jane the Virgin, Petra was conniving, controlling, and out for blood money. She was the baddest chick on the show, working every angle and man to get what she wanted.

As the season progressed, we started to see the real Petra—scared, hiding from an abusive ex-boyfriend, and trying to escape her past life. Now she’s almost a sympathetic character. She literally has nothing.

To make things worse, her scary, acid-throwing ex-boyfriend, Milos, has found her. In tonight’s episode, he tries to convince her to leave Miami and come with him. Petra resists, and in a final showdown, Milos slits Petra’s throat, leaving her bloody body on her hotel room floor. This gory scene leaves Petra’s mother, Magda, in shock.

The truth about this “death,” though, is that Petra isn’t really dead. She is just faking it to see if her mother is really lying to her about not being able to walk. Milos had warned Petra about her mother and, after seeing the fake blood on Jane’s arm, Petra is inspired to fake her own death.

The plan works perfectly: Magda gets out of her wheelchair and runs over to Petra’s dead body. Upon realizing her mother is faking, Petra gets up, confesses that the blood is fake, and kicks her mother out of her hotel room.

Death No. 2: Rogelio, El Presidente

All actors, whether they are on television, film, or the stage, want two things: a character who can never die and a great death scene (if they have to die). Tonight Rogelio’s character, El Presidente, gets his great death scene. After months of his personal assistant sabotaging his reputation, Rogelio is told he is being fired. At first, Rogelio is furious. But after Xo encourages him that he can transition into making movies, Rogelio accepts his fate and asks Jane to write his death scene. Jane, inspired by her abuela’s kind and loving words, writes Rogelio a perfect scene.

On the set of The Passions of Santos, with the entire cast and crew watching, Rogelio takes a knife to the stomach. His character’s son (the real-life backstabbing assistant) stabs him, and then apologizes. Rogelio performs his last monologue, the perfect words to end the life of El Presidente.

Death No. 3 and the reveal of Sin Rostro

Throughout the episode, everyone is starting to believe that Emilio Solano, Rafael and Luisa’s father, is the drug lord Sin Rostro. All the clues point to him. Rafael discovers Emilio paid off the tunnel subcontractor. Michael discovers payments linking Emilio to the plastic surgeon. Luisa is even starting to suspect her father when she finds out about the corkscrew murder weapon.

In the last scene of the episode, Emilio is fleeing the country. Taking Rose into the indoor garden, he tells her they have to leave right away. Apparently Sin Rostro is Emilio. Rose attempts to seduce Emilio, albeit for a pre-getaway quickie, taking off her blouse and leading him into an empty fountain.

The tables turn very quickly, though. Within seconds, Rose is drowning Emilio in liquid cement. Why would Rose kill Emilio? Because ROSE is Sin ROStro! How many of you saw that coming?!?

Now we know Rose is Sin Rostro, but a lot of questions are still unanswered. For instance, what kind of plastic surgery did Rose get? Did she just have facial reconstruction, or is she hiding a deeper secret? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out next week!

Jane the Virgin airs Mondays at 9/8C on The CW.
