Monday on TV: Yes, SPOILER ALERT is really dead on ‘Jane the Virgin’

First Published      Last Updated Feb 13 2017 01:18 pm

After spending two seasons building up a love triangle on "Jane the Virgin" (8 p.m., CW/Ch. 30) — and a major rivalry between Rafael (Justin Baldoni) and Michael (Brett Dier) — that was all resolved in Season 3 as Jane (Gina Rodriguez) settled into a happy marriage with Michael.

Until last week when … SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't seen the Feb. 6 episode yet, SKIP THIS ITEM and just check out the listings below.

Until last week when Michael died. So … after finally making even (most) of the members of Team Rafael like Michael, they killed him.

And, yes, he is dead. It wasn't a dream.

They also weren't kidding when, in the final scene of last week's episode, the narrative flashed forward three years. In tonight's episode, after one scene set shortly after Michael's death, there is a three-year time jump. And somebody is about to get married.

There are several surprises. And things have changed. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, because "Jane the Virgin" — aka "Jane the Widow" — was in need of a bit of a reboot.
