Jane is still madly in love with Rafael Solano. Mateo is struggling with ADHD, and they have been getting along for his sake. Jane and Rafael are going to take other options into consideration before putting him on medication.
Jane was currently living with Alba, then Jorge moved in. It was getting crowded, and tension was rising because of Jorge moving in. Jane decides to move out and get her own place.
JR and Petra broke up, and JR moved to Houston. In the meantime, Petra asked Krishna to come back and be her assistant.
Xo found out that she is cancer FREE! Everyone is happy for her and is glad she made it through this tough time. River was so pleased about the news that she KISSED Rogelio! When Rogelio told River that they will never be together, she is plotting revenge.
When will Jane and Rafael get back together? Where did Jane move to? Is Krishna up to something, or is she coming back just to be Petra’s assistant? What is River planning to do about Rogelio?
Rafael’s Dating Life
Rafael is helping Jane find an apartment with no carpet. Jane hands Rafael a list of everything she wants in her new place. She is always so prepared.
A lady walks up and asks if she is interrupting. My guess is Rafael’s new girlfriend, Julie. We will see how long this rebound lasts.
Jane is stalking on Julie’s Instagram on her mom’s phone, and Julie calls Jane a clingy koala bear. Someone is jealous of Rafael and Jane’s co-parenting relationship.
Rafael and Jane go apartment hunting. When they come back, she runs into Julie. Now, what does she want? Julie was curious if Jane and Rafael still have some sparks. Jane lied and said no, but we all know that there is, and they will always love each other.
Rafael gets upset with Jane about her meddling in his personal business. Rafael admits that he does not like Julie and was hoping it would fizzle out. They both laugh. Jane decides to buy the apartment that Rafael showed her. They decided to leave, but the door handle broke off. They are trapped inside.
Jane looks over the list that Rafael created for his love interest. Jane tells Rafael to give Julie a chance. Then they get rescued out of the apartment.
Rafael calls Julie. What was the conversation about? Did they break up? They did, in fact, break up!
Finally! Rafael realizes that he is still in love with Jane! They kiss so romantically and are very happy to be with each other.
Mateo is in a school musical, and he is a tree. His school musical rehearsal is not going well so far, and the kids blame him for ruining everything. He knocked the trees down for the musical.
Mateo got kicked out of the musical at school because he was throwing a tantrum and destroying the props. Rafael thinks it is time for the medication. Jane wants to wait a couple of weeks and reevaluate.
Jane goes to see Mateo’s teacher. She tells Jane that he is very disruptive and distracting the other kids. Jane takes it upon herself to teach Mato the song and dance moves at home. Xo decides to teach him the musical so Jane can focus on finding an apartment.
Everyone goes to Mateo’s Musical, and it was going great until the baby was crying. Who brings a baby to a school rehearsal? Why didn’t they get a babysitter? Mateo yells, “stop crying!” He stopped the production of the play. Jane realizes it may be more serious, and Mateo admits he does not want to be this way anymore. I think he realizes that he cannot handle it anymore, either. Jane and Rafael know what they need to do. She decides to call the doctor the next day.
Xo loves her new life with no cancer. Rogelio is struggling with something, and it is River. Rogelio knows that River is going to retaliate. Xo thinks Rogelio is paranoid. Is Rogelio paranoid, though? This is River that we are talking about, and she can be a little crazy.
Rogelio and River are filming “This is Mars,” and a light that was hanging fell and almost hit Rogelio. River planned that to happen, and Rogelio is scared for his life. He does not trust River one bit.
River is looking for Rogelio, and he shows up with his bodyguard. Tells him to keep an eye on River.
Rogelio wakes up from a nap, and his bodyguard is nowhere to be found. He finds his bodyguard with River. They have some interests in common. River’s best revenge was to do nothing at all, and it worked like a charm. She wanted Rogelio to drive himself crazy, and he did exactly that.
River’s plan was not the only plan that was successful. Rogelio and Darci planned to get the bodyguard so he could send a man right to River. So, River is distracted by the bodyguard and will leave Rogelio alone.
Xo feels sad, but she believes she should feel happy. Rogelio tells her it is okay to feel sad, and she does not have to be happy all the time. Xo needs to find her own passion and do what she loves.
