The problem is the whole Madonna/Whore-paradigm is reductive! I'm a real person, who you know nothing about
— Jane telling Fabian how it is


  • Although Jane doesn't specifically confront her, Alba's own experience of being humiliated for having sex before marriage, which she projected onto both Xo and Jane, is mentioned by Jane to Xo in a conversation about her fling as Jane growing up with sex negative messaging. This is the first time Jane actively states that the flower story had a scarring effect on her views on sex.
  • Jane the Virgin Columnist. Jane gets a job writing a 'dating as a 28-year-old widow' column for Cosmopolitan. This prompts a Sex & the City theme.
  • The episode goes meta on tropes and criticism:
    • The Narrator apologizes for a "bad" narrative transition due to tonal shifts between heightened telenovela moments and the down to earth romance stuff.
    • The sequence with discontinuity in Rogelio holding one dog, then two in a different outfit.
  • Alba and Jorge say 'I love you'!!
  • Chuck tells Petra he loves her!
  • Rafael finds out Petra heard his message and says almost the same words as when he tried to seduce her in 2010: "Say yes".
  • Jane and Fabian finally have sex.


  • Petra receives Rafael's message that he's in love with her.
  • Chuck knew Scott from getting hotel intel and met the woman who possibly murdered Scott.
    • Chuck describes her to the Miami PD sketch artist. Chambers drops it by the penthouse; Petra and Rafael both recognize her.
  • Xo and Rogelio are hesitant to have a big wedding, fearing it'll upset Jane.
  • Jane seems disappointed that Rafael is seeing Petra and the girls, instead of coming with her to the telenovela blessing.
  • Mateo is told the story of how he came to be.
