'Jane the Virgin' fan react: Worst. Baby. Shower. Ever.

Season 1 | Episode 19 | “Chapter 19” | Aired April 20, 2015

When we left Jane and Rafael last week on Jane the Virgin, Rafael had just broken Jane’s heart. This episode picks up right where we left off, with Jane going through the seven stages of grief: denial, guilt, anger, depression, upward turn, working through it, and acceptance. Jane has almost made it through all the stages of grief when she barges in on Rafael to “talk about it.”

Throughout the course of this episode we see Jane confront Rafael about his feelings, Jane’s best friend throw her an awkward baby shower, and Jane and Rafael go to a counseling session (with My Big Fat Greek Wedding star Nia Valdaros!) A lot happened in this episode; let’s count down the top-five moments!

5. Aaron Zazo is really Roman Zazo
Last week Petra discovered Aaron’s secret: He is really Roman! After kidnapping Petra, Roman confesses to killing his real twin brother Aaron to fake his death and steal Sin Rostro’s drug database. Petra is able to escape from Roman and puts in a call to Michael, who sets out to find her. Unfortunately Roman finds Petra hiding in the glades. He sneaks up on her and Petra stabs him in the chest! Judging by that water splash, I have a feeling Roman is now literally swimming with the fishes, and probably the gators. Watch out for those gators, baby!

4. Jane and Rafael get counseling
Jane may be moving through the stages of grief pretty quickly, but she is not done fighting for her and Rafael’s relationship. After discovering that Rafael met his real mom the night before, Jane asks him to go to counseling to talk about everything. Rafael still loves Jane and agrees to go. The stunning Nia Valdaros guest stars as their marriage-and-family counselor Barbara. While discussing their crazy story (artificial insemination, murder, death, etc.), Jane and Rafael both agree they would work on their relationship, despite their difficulties and differences.

3. Lina throws Jane the most awkward baby shower ever
Jane and Rafael are in no mood to entertain people at a baby shower, especially since they are going through a rough spot. Rogelio decides to sing a crazy song about looking into the handsome eyes of his baby’s baby and Amanda (Jane Seymour) slaps Rogelio right in the middle of his song! Apparently they had a fling a few years ago and Amanda is still upset Rogelio never showed up for their date. To make things worse, Michael’s ex-girlfriend is there and can’t even give a good explanation as to why she was stalking Jane. Shout out to those baby-shower decorations though. Pinterest would be proud.

2. Nadine is working for Sin Rostro
While Michael is recovering the data on Roman Zazo’s flash drive, he discovers all of Sin Rostro’s drug-dealing data. The data includes the names of dealers, drop locations, bank accounts, and dirty cops, one of whom is Michael’s partner, Nadine. Nadine claims that Sin Rostro threatened her family if she didn’t agree to help her. Michael looks back at all the times Nadine threw off the investigation in order to protect Sin Rostro. Despite feeling betrayed and appalled, Michael gives Nadine an hour head start to get out of Miami.

1. Rafael breaks up with Jane and makes room for #TeamMichael
Despite the counseling, despite the “falling in love all over again” baby-shower moment, despite the intimate skinny-dipping make-out session in the pool, Rafael cannot commit to Jane. He is too afraid that he will hurt her, that he will damage her, at a time when she needs to be protected the most. Rafael tells Jane that he doesn’t love her as much as she loves him, and he officially breaks up with her. It’s obvious that Rafael is madly in love with Jane, but he can’t see past his personal mess of a life to let her in. Rafael calls #TeamRafael quits and makes room for #TeamMichael. Ouch.

In addition to these top moments, Rogelio and Xiomara also break up in the midst of a #DeLasVegas photo shoot), Michael called it quits with Andi, and Alma starts to remember who pushed her down the stairs: Petra’s mother. Stay tuned next week, and be sure to bring your boxing gloves for another awesome episode of Jane the Virgin.

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