After last week’s episode of Jane the Virgin, the love triangle between Jane, Michael, and Rafael is becoming a bigger plot point on the show and eventually, Jane is going to have to choose between the two men. But how does one choose between two adorably devoted characters?
With numbers and pro/con lists, of course. All that neurotic list-making behavior is finally paying off, Jen!
Let’s go ahead and break it down based on what we’ve seen through season 2, episode 3:
|Knows Jane better than anyone:||+10 pts|
|THE ADORABLE DIARY:||+15 pts|
|Risked his job to save Mateo:||+5 pts|
|Knowledge of the Villanueva women:||+5 pts|
|Relationship with Rogelio:||+5 pts|
|Stable job:||+5 pts|
|Put Mateo at risk because of his connection to Sin Rostro:||-20 pts|
|Seems like the “safe” choice for Jane:||-5 pts|
|Jealous of Rafael:||-5 pts|
|Mateo’s father:||+5 pts|
|Passionate connection with Jane:||+5 pts|
|Willing to give up job and worldly possessions for Jane and Mateo:||+5 pts|
|That skin-to-skin contact time (I’m superficial):||+30 pts|
|PETRA (and now she’s pregnant with his baby):||-10 pts|
|Has a horrible track record with telling the truth:||-5 pts|
|Told Jane he didn’t love her:||-10 pts|
|Doesn’t know her family/traditions that well:||-5 pts|
|Poor relationship with Rogelio:||-5 pts|
Michael: 15 pts.
Rafael: 10 pts.
Season two has definitely skewed the lines in favor of Michael but Rafael being the biological father could still swing things for Jane at the last minute. Who knows? Since things have been in Michael’s favor lately, it seems like the next episode is going to have to give us more good Rafael moments to keep that tension going. I’m willing to bet Rafael earns at least 15 more points in next week’s episode.
Thoughts? Which team tickles your fancy?
