[ # ] Be prepared to ugly cry with Jane the Virgin tonight
April 13th, 2018 under Jane the Virgin


Tonight at 9p on The CW, Jane the Virgin delivers its most gut-wrenching episode so far. In fact, just thinking about it makes me tear up.

Now that Xo has healed from the surgery she got to remove her breast, it is time for her to go to chemotherapy to get rid of any of the breast cancer that might be left in her body. She tells her family that she is going to use cold caps (I never heard of these before this episode), which will lessen her chances of losing her hair. She knows it will be painful, but she is strong. Rogelio (Jaime Camil) is such a supportive husband that he will do whatever she wants even though he does not want to see her suffer.

When she gets to chemo, she immediately makes a friend. For the first time since she was diagnosed, Xo (Andrea Navedo) has someone to talk to that understands what she is going through. She and Donna (Amy Brenneman) do not let the struggles of cancer get them down and help each other get stronger and healthier.

Talking about strong, when Alba (Ivonne Coll) strong arms Mateo, Rafael (Justin Baldoni) lets her have it. The two of them get into such a fight, that it looks like they will never talk to each other again. Causing Jane (Gina Rodriguez) to be in the middle. Can she work her magic to get her Abuela and her boyfriend/baby daddy back together?

When it comes to together, it looks like the case against Petra (Yael Grobglas) is almost over. JR (Rosario Dawson) can see the finish line, even though Petra’s mom (Priscilla Barnes) has come forward with testimony against her daughter. Will the charges finally be dropped, so that Petra and JR can move on with their lives?

As they prepare to move on with their lives, Rogelio is trying to move his telenovela forward into production. His co-star River Fields (Brooke Shields), is a Greengo and does not understand how Spanish soap operas work, and she wants to Americanize it. In other words, take everything out that makes it so good. Rogelio tries to fight her, but everyone keeps listening to her because she is the bigger star in America. Will he be able to save his show and his wife?

I cannot praise this show enough. What they have been doing with the breast cancer storyline is more than awards-worthy (and yes Navedo and Camil deserve awards for their acting because each week they have been hitting it out of the park), it is also educational. Not only are they being very responsible with how they are handling such a sensitive subject, they are also showing us how each family member is handling it differently. Most shows just focus on the person going through it, but they show us how a mom handles it differently than a daughter who will handle it differently than her dad. It is about being strong around the person when all you want to do is break down and cry. Which is what I am doing right now. That is how good this show has been recently, just thinking about it is making me cry again.

Therefore, watch it tonight at 9p on The CW, so I am not crying alone. Thank you Jennie Snyder Urman for this show and this storyline. I will send you a bill for the tissues!
