What’s Worth Watching: Jane’s Ex Charms her Dad
Jane the Virgin, “Chapter Seventeen” (Monday, April 6, 9/8c, The CW)
One of the most unexpectedly delightful pairings on Jane has been Jane’s ex Michael (Brett Dier) and her father Rogelio (Jaime Camil). Rogelio tagging along with Michael on his cases has produced a warm rapport between the two that is entirely absent in Rogelio’s relationship with his daughter’s actual current boyfriend Rafael (Justin Baldoni). And with Rafael currently consumed by a crisis at the hotel—the Marbella’s liquor license is about to be revoked, which, if you’ve ever stayed at a hotel with a bar, is a complete disaster—Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is starting to wonder if Rafael may not be the hands-on dad she wants him to be. So maybe, just maybe, the door leading Michael back to Jane has been cracked open.
