You're about to let motherhood hijack your goals
— Xo

Chapter Twenty-Five is 3rd episode of Season 2 of Jane the Virgin.


BIG DECISIONS — When a slot opens up in the graduate program that Jane (Gina Rodriguez) has been waiting for, she is faced with her first big motherhood dilemma – leaving Mateo sooner than expected. Rafael (Justin Baldoni) is still reeling from Petra’s (Yael Grobglas) news as he tries to help plan Mateo’s baptism with Jane. Xo (Andrea Navedo) helps Rogelio (Jaime Camil) confront his past even though it makes Xo uncomfortable. Meanwhile, Michael (Brett Dier) takes some advice from Rogelio about how to handle Jane, but it is easier said than done for him.

— Rogelio tells Michael
There's no right choice because we're all different

Remember, she can't hurt you anymore. This is the last part of letting go
