Jane the Virgin
— Chapter Fifty-Five
Chapter Fifty-Five is the 11th episode of Season 3 of Jane the Virgin.


FIXING THE PROBLEM — Working in publishing is not what Jane (Gina Rodriguez) thought it would be until she learns about a showcase for up and coming writers. With Petra (Yael Grobglas) helming the Marbella, she decides to rebrand the hotel, but quickly butts head with the rival hotel next door. Rogelio (Jaime Camil) and Darci (guest star Justina Machado) have made a new arrangement which has put a strain on his relationship with Xo (Andrea Navedo). Meanwhile, Jane and Rafael try to figure out the best solution to Mateo's behavioral issues and they both seem to have different approaches.

—Imaginary Rogelio
Que hija tan fuerte criaste
—Alba to Xo at Jane's reading
JaneI'm sorry. I didn't ask for your help with Mateo because... well, it made me feel like I failed him as a parent. Like I let my sadness get in the way and that's why he's acting out
PetraYeah no kidding. And I've been waiting to tell you that's just completely ridiculous. Look, I don't know how you did it but you have been an incredible mother. And I know — I've seen you once a week for the past two years
I told you, you got this
—Imaginary Michael to Jane


  • It's now 3 years later. Since Michael took the LSATs at the end of December, it's approximately December 2019.
    • Jane works for Chloe Leland, who is the boss from hell; she changed her thesis novel from writing about Alba's family to writing a romance novel about her and Michael (with a happy ever after)
    • Alba and Jane live together in the Villanueva Home
    • Xo and Bruce live together.
    • Rogelio and Darci broke up, but they still work together
    • Mateo is an unruly kid
    • Petra has revamped The Marbella into a family destination pirate-themed experience and is sleeping with the neighboring competition
    • The twins are constantly rewarded for their good behavior and kindness
    • Rafael went to prison and came out a more Zen self, although Jane teases him when he teeters on the brink of jumping back into The Marbella. He and Jane are best friends.
  • New characters introduced:
    • Chuck Jesser – the owner of the neighboring Fairwick Hotel (where Mutter stashed two million)
    • Abbey Whitman – the owner of Whitman Greeting Card Company and Rafael's girlfriend for over a year.
  • Jane gets a reading slot and a publisher offers to buy her book.
  • Jane changed her book about Alba's family to the love story of her and Michael — with a HEA (happily ever after) — entitled Snow Falling
