Jane The Virgin "Chapter Twenty-Five" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Jane The Virgin is a show rooted in tradition. There’s the Catholic tradition at the foundation of the title character’s celibacy, but there’s also the telenovela tradition at the foundation of the title character’s accidental artificial insemination. “Chapter Twenty-Five” pays tribute to both in a heartwarming episode centered on Mateo Gloriano Rogelio Solano Villanueva’s baptism, an event that is interrupted by two very pressing matters: Petra getting pregnant from Rafael’s stolen sperm sample, and Jane being accepted into a graduate school program. The first is the source of major telenovela-inspired drama that further complicates Jane’s already messy situation with Rafael while the latter introduces a much more grounded conflict between Jane’s priorities as a mother and an aspiring writer, and the combination of baptism, Petra’s pregnancy, and grad school hits all the show’s strong suits.

The story is too old to be commented.
