Jane the Virgin picks up right where it left off last week: With a surprise visit from Jane’s cousin, Catalina (Sofia Pernas), with whom she had recently come in contact online. Catalina certainly spices things up, with her wardrobe and attitude alike, as she encourages Jane to be bold AND flirts with Rafael. Alba even comes around, agreeing to meet with her and dressing for the occasion, but the evening ends up taking a very bad turn. Also spicy tonight — besides Catalina — are Rogelio’s lingering feelings for Xo and Xo’s lingering feelings for another old flame, Bruce. Cue the drama! Now, let’s dive in…


Jane’s adviser, Marlene, recommends her for an assistant job at a publishing company and Catalina encourages her to go into the meeting with confidence. You know, just act like you know what’s going on, because you’ll pick things up on the job — that sort of thing. Jane certainly appears confident as she walks into the office wearing a long white dress and blazer; she looks business appropriate, but cool-girl chic. That confidence carries over to the interview, too, where she makes a joke about how she got to a hugging basis with Marlene. But she takes it a step too far when she lies about her knowledge of a computer program and is tested on the spot. More specifically, she deletes a file her potential boss — played by Kelly Rutherford, a.k.a. Serena’s mom on Gossip Girl! — had been working on. So that didn’t go well, but Catalina encourages Jane to text the assistant, Alice, and maybe get an in with her. Michael isn’t supportive, and it’s the first of a few instances he doesn’t see eye to eye with Jane’s newly discovered family member who is, by the way, crashing with them for a few days in their new place.


Xo starts making moves to open her dance school and Rogelio wants to help, but she’s wary of his offer because she doesn’t want him to be too creatively involved and take over. Throughout the process, they keep making all these inside jokes about dance, and those jokes are revealed to be references to when Rogelio signed up for his high-school dance troupe. Believing he was just in it to meet girls, Xo suggested they have a dance-off. That’s exactly what goes down, and it’s awesome not only because of their moves, but also because Xo is totally dated with her overalls and big scrunchie, while Rogelio looks like a miniature version of himself with a crisp, white button-down and purple tie. (Which begs the question, when exactly did purple become his signature color? These are the questions that keep Jane fans up at night…)

Back in present day, Xo accepts Rogelio’s help with the studio. As she’s signing the papers, she sees an ex, Bruce, is working nearby and he SUCKS. He was married while he was seeing Xo, then said he’d get divorced — but that didn’t happen, of course. Eventually, and seemingly after far too long, Xo left. She’s having a hard time with him working so close to the studio because she never got to tell him off for treating her the way he did. Xo finally does just that: After encouragement from Rogelio, with whom she has another dance-off and also basically friend-zones, she confronts Bruce and finds out he’s now divorced after all. Later in the episode, Rogelio sees them making out. It’s sad, as he was once again dealing with feelings for her, but seeing Xo with Bruce seems to be just the push he needs to remind himself they won’t work. He wants kids and she doesn’t, and it inspires story lines in his telenovela. Then again, who knows? Xo and Ro seem good for each other otherwise…

NEXT: Alba dresses to impress, while Catalina undresses for, well, something else…
