Last week’s episode found Jane testing the waters with both Michael (Brett Dier) and Rafael and making a pretty strong case for both.
Jane (Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez) approaches everything with logic and organization, so let’s review the pros and cons for both contenders for Jane’s very organized and imaginative heart.
Cons: All that hotness and heart come with bonkers baggage in the form of his trainwreck, meddling sister (ya know, the quack OBGYN who mistakenly inseminated Jane), his sperm-stealing ex-wife Petra, and his evil step-mother, the master-of-disguise criminal overlord, Sin Rostro, who already orchestrated the kidnapping of baby Mateo.
Pros: He was prepared to marry Jane before she was accidentally inseminated, and eventually came around after. In the season 2 premiere, he selflessly traded a career-making bust for Jane’s kidnapped son. Finally, he continually swallows his pride to be present to Jane’s life even though their relationship ended.
Cons: It was an understandable struggle for Michael to process that Jane was having another man’s baby—a move that may have pushed Jane away. He also let her go fairly easily. Professionally, as a detective, he’s just as entangled in Sin Rostro’s web as Rafael is, possibly even more.
