Will Jane the Virgin Sue? Will Petra Be Exposed? And More Burning Qs

Jane the Virgin Season 1 Spoilers

Jane the Virgin is cooking up a lot more than just the misplaced bun in its heroine’s oven.

The new CW series’ premiere left us with a bounty of burning questions, starting with the most obvious: Will Jane take legal action against the doc who accidentally artificially inseminated her?

Then there’s the matter of Jane’s romantic life, including whether we can really trust new fiancé Michael. And how about whether or not Jane will learn that her father is a huge telenovela star?

Luckily, executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman and star Gina Rodriguez were willing to tackle those mysteries — and many more — for TVLine.

WILL JANE SUE? | “That’s what the second episode is about – the legal consequences and the emotional complications,” Urman previews. “I won’t say what she decides, but the issue of whether she’ll sue comes up at the beginning of the second episode, and a decision is made by the end of it.”

Jane the Virgin Season 1 SpoilersWILL THE TRUTH ABOUT PETRA’S WAYS COME OUT? | As early as next Monday’s installment (The CW, 9/8c), Michael, who’s keeping tabs on Petra’s paramour, “realizes she’s the wife of the guy and has to make a choice whether to tell Jane. Complications ensue,” Urman teases. Adds Rodriguez: “[Jane] gets to come face-to-face with Petra and see a very beautiful side, and then she gets to hear about a very ugly side. It’s going to be interesting to see the way Jane decides whether her eyes are telling her the truth or these things that are told to her.”

SHOULD WE ROOT FOR JANE/RAFAEL OR JANE/MICHAEL? | “I feel like, in the second episode, you will leave it divided,” Urman says. “Both Brett [Dier] and Justin [Baldoni] are great in that second episode, and they both have big scenes with Jane. You can see two different sides of her and what those two people would represent.” Meanwhile, Rodriguez reveals that as of the sixth installment, Jane is “still torn” between the two men.

IS MICHAEL LESS THAN PERFECT? | His brother (played by Veronica Mars‘ Ryan Devlin), who reappears in the fifth episode, certainly thinks so. “There definitely is a secret there,” Urman confirms. As more is uncovered about her beau, Jane has to deal with “the reality of the fact that she is pregnant and it’s not the man of her dreams’ baby,” Rodriguez shares. Not to mention, “the fact that maybe the man of her dreams is not who she wanted it to be or [who she] thought he was.”

Jane the Virgin Season 1 SpoilersWILL JANE MEET HER TELENOVELA-STAR DAD? | And how! “It’s so funny,” portrayer Jaime Camil says of his “crazy” character’s elaborate first face-to-face with Jane. “He wants to make a grand introduction with his daughter.” So naturally, he has his assistant make the first move. “The narrator goes, ‘You should know that Rogelio trained his assistant for this.’ And then he bows. ‘Rogelio also told him to bow.’ It’s these ridiculous, absurd things,” like Rogelio descending toward his daughter from a grand staircase and “running and then tumbling” when he realizes how far away he is from her. “It’s a very comedic role. But it’s a very heartfelt relationship with his daughter,” Camil describes, adding that “he will not be a good father figure for Jane at the beginning. They’re both going to learn from each other how to be a good father, how to be a good daughter.”

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH LOUISA’S EX? | Keep an eye on the lawyer, because “there’s a big twist with her at the end of the second episode,” Urman hints, “and she becomes pretty important.”

    This year’s Most Overrated new show.

  2. db says:

    Definitely overrated. The show has a ridiculous premise. It needs to be cancelled.

    • dude says:

      Your ridiculous if you think that. Maybe just don’t watch? Don’t get why The CW crowd gets so threatened when a show that’s not about pretty vampires and superheroes comes along. First Reign, now this? There’s more to entertainment that those overdone tropes. Jane the Virgin is at least original and extremely enjoyable. Pretty sure you didn’t even bother to watch.

      • Guest(Reall name will be revealed when I decide to reveal it) says:

        @dude The CW crowd never feels threatened about shows coming that are NOT about vampires and superheroes because NOT everyone watches those types of shows. We never said anything bad about Reign, we just thought it would be cancelled because it was taking on Grey’s Anatomy and other shows that were on Thursdays at 9 and/or 930pm in the 2013-2014 Tv season and we have opinions! Bottom line, Jane The Virgin is on Mondays, tough competition on that particular night and it usually equals not surviving and it could bring The Originals down with it but i hope that’s not the case.

        • Briggs says:

          The Originals comes before Jane, so it’s unlikely that if Jane goes down, TO will go down with her, if only because people can just change the channel after TO is over. Now, if the order were reversed, that would make a lot more sense. Besides which, it’s a little early to call anything on any show that’s only aired it’s pilot, so let’s all relax and save predictions for, say, the mid-season finale.

    • johnhelvete says:

      Selfie, Manhattan Love Story, Stalker, Scorpion, all have ridiculous premises as well, perhaps not as OTT as Jane The Virgin, but not that far from it. So I dont understand how ridiculous premise leads to need to be cancelled. I liked JTV but I will admit it might have been a tad overrated by some of the critics.

    • Emma says:

      The premise is a bit ridiculous but how many shows on the CW are realistic? I can assure you that vampires, demons, and superheroes who are super fast and can shoot arrows aren’t running around in your neighborhood.

    • Daisy says:

      Did the show hurt your feelings? You seem oddly angry at it.

    • jm says:

      poor you… they cancelled TTP or SC for that… Deal it. I liked them both too but it is as good as the former two. They should have cancelled Beauty and The Beast and the The hart of Roxie instead.

      • Guest(Reall name will be revealed when I decide to reveal it) says:

        @jm TTP should never have been cancelled, Beauty And The Beast on the other hand should have been giving the axe because the ratings in season 2 were bad (0.2, got pulled from the schedule and continue the season during the summer) and they supposedly wrapped everything up and they still renewed it?! unacceptable and (In Albert Wesker’s voice) impossible.

    • Briggs says:

      Whether db responds or not will clinch it for me as to whether he/she actually cares , or is just trying to get a reaction…

    I though it was a cute show am going to give a chance. .
