Jane the Virgin: 2x14 "Chapter Thirty-Four" Recap

Wow, this week was a doozie. Shall we get started?
source
We start with a flashback of Jane telling Michael for the first time that she’s not going to have sex. He is absolutely cool about it and says they’ll just have to wait until they’re married. We flash forward to Jane telling Xo about being open to the idea of having sex with Jonathan (not Chavez anymore), but the conversation is cut short because Xo must be on her way to talk to Rogelio. There, Xo and Ro start fighting about things they’ve hidden from one another, and Xo brings up the Scientology discs (even the narrator points out how long it’s been since those have been mentioned). Rogelio says he would gladly show her the discs, but Xo realizes that isn’t the point.

We later move on to Michael, who is questioning a man who had his face changed by Sin Rostro. Michael convinces the man to help them contact Rose. We then go to Jane and Rafael, and Rafael asks Jane to help Petra with all of the baby stuff she is dealing with. Jane agrees and goes to talk with Petra. Petra heartily accepts the help, including the offer of a baby shower.

Jane later continues her talk with Xo about Jonathan and gets ready for dinner with him. At dinner, things are going great until he asks her to come over to his place. She isn’t quite ready, but when he invites her over the next day, she agrees. The next morning, she goes over her plan with Xo, but they stop talking when Abuela walks in. They disperse, and Xo goes to talk to Rogelio. He decides he wants to show her the Scientology videos to clear the air. Turns out, Rogelio was a gigolo on accident. Lame. 
source
Rogelio then proposes again, but we never hear Xo say yes. We return to Jane, who is talking to Petra. As they go over Jane’s baby shower registry, Petra is being very nit-picky, and Jane is judging. When Petra vents to Rafael, he reveals he was the one to set Jane up with her.
source
We go back to Rogelio on the set of his telenovela. He announces to everyone that Xo is his new fiancée, but later when Xo sees him interacting with a kid, she knows he still really wants to be a father. She confronts him about it and he comes up with the solution of possibly freezing Xo’s eggs.

source
We return to Jane who is back at Jonathan’s place where things get hot and heavy, but she last minute decides to tell him she’s a virgin. The entire thing breaks the mood and they stop. (Thank the Lord.) When she goes home, she talks to Xo about the entire thing, and Xo tells her about possibly freezing her eggs. Abuela walks in again, so they stop the conversation. Luisa, on the other hand, needs to talk to Rafael and apologizes for keeping contact with Rose. He doesn’t accept the apology and as Luisa leaves she contemplates drinking again.
source
Jane goes back to Petra to clear the air, but things get complicated when Petra reveals she kissed Rafael. Jane doesn’t care and tries to convince Petra of this, but Petra reveals Rafael still wants to be with Jane. Jane goes to confront Rafael…and guys...this was the final stab in the Rafael and Jane ship. Jane says she’s honestly moved on. My heart. My love. I bleed. Many sadness. Much tears.
source
We flash forward to Petra’s baby shower, but when Petra hasn’t shown up, Jane starts getting pretty angry. While she goes upstairs to confront Petra, Xo watches Mateo. While changing him, Xo comes upon an epiphany (which will be revealed later). Jane comes to an okay place with Petra after she reveals she wants to get closer to her so her son will be familiar with the family he has. Petra then goes down to the baby shower.
source
We then go to Michael setting up the plastic surgery guy to meet with Rose, but then they get a call saying Luisa was drinking and in a really bad car crash. Meanwhile, Jane starts sexting Jonathan and decides to meet up with him. She leaves the house without any pants, and while she driving gets pulled over. When she finally does make it to Jonathan’s place and he pulls out the condom, she starts crying. She returns home dejected and reveals everything to Xo, but then Abuela walks in again, so they disperse once more.
source
And then we get into some real intense stuff, guys. Plastic surgery guy is waiting to meet up with Rose at the same time Luisa sits in the hospital. But Rose never meets up with him; she goes to Luisa instead. But then we discover Michael is actually hooked up to Luisa, and soon Susanna comes in to arrest Rose. Shocked that Luisa set her up, Rose gets in contact with someone who knows where Susanna’s family is, ready to kill them. Susanna hands over the gun, and as Rose steps out with the gun barrel over Susanna’s head, Michael goes in with backup. But not before Rose shoots Susanna in the leg. Michael runs after Rose, but they’re too late. Rose is found dead on the ground, strangled with blue silk ropes: Mutter’s signature.
source
Now with that over, we get back to Jane chilling with Abuela. Abuela reveals she knows Jane was contemplating having sex, and she wants her to know she won’t judge her, because she had sex before marriage. Turns out, it was that guy she Google searched earlier; something Segura. Abuela then tells Jane that if she’s crying about having sex, then it isn’t the right guy. Turns out, I had nothing to worry about; this episode just proved my point. So thanks, yay!
source
Afterwards,
Xo talks to Rogelio and says she doesn’t want to freeze her eggs and breaks it off. Later that night, Rogelio watches his old Scientology tapes and finds one about him confessing that the greatest love he ever had was Xo. More tears. More sadness. Why????
source
Also, Rogelio was apparently writing to someone in prison about his love to Xo, and she’s getting out soon. That will probably be important later on, but for now, eh.
source
We go back to Jane, who gets a text from Michael. He’s at her doorstep and reveals that Rose is dead and that’s the only reason he pushed her away because he knew Rose could threaten them. But now that she’s gone, he’s there…and guys…I know I’ve said a lot of things. I’ve loved Rafael, I’ve fought for him. But maybe I’ve been looking at it wrong. Because the feels that hit me when she said she loved him back…genuine feels.
