Chapter Forty is the 18th episode of Season 2 of Jane the Virgin.


THE AFTERMATH – With Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Xo (Andrea Navedo) still dealing with the fallout from Jane's bachelorette party, Jane is now left with finding someone to watch Mateo. When Michael (Brett Dier) volunteers to help everything is perfect until Mateo does something for the first time in front of Rafael (Justin Baldoni), upsetting him. Rogelio (Jaime Camil) gets in trouble with the network executives when he uses the crew for his own use, so he turns to his favorite writer Dina (guest star Judy Reyes) to help fix the problem.
