Xo and Rogelio reveal their news, Petra gets caught in the middle, and Jane finally has her fling, all on this episode of Jane the Virgin.

At the start of the hour, Jane’s bro-editor calls her with some news: Cosmopolitan wants her to write a column on dating as a widow. Luckily, Jane happens to be dating Fabian, though she does get a little worried when he starts turning their dates into book clubs. He assures her that he’s still attracted to her, though, and is even willing to forget his temporary celibacy. Jane’s understandably excited—have you seen Fabian?—but is ultimately glad when Alba calls saying Mateo needs his mom. Instead of a night of passion, Jane’s treated to pretty much the exact opposite: an evening of explaining to Mateo that he isn’t “artificial.” Her explanation doesn’t quite do the trick, so she and Rafael get together to tell him more details. As Mateo falls asleep, Rafael confesses to Jane that he left Petra a message confessing his love but doesn’t think that she got it.

Jane was glad about the Fabian interruption mostly because she still has a pretty warped relationship with sex, especially casual sex, though she does tell Alba that she doesn’t regret waiting. She heads back to Fabian’s the next night completely ready to do the deed, but things take a bit of a weird turn when his grandma shows up. It’s clear that, even though he is physically attracted to her, Fabian’s far more interested in the “take home to Grandma” part of Jane. She calls him out on it later, saying that he made assumptions about what she wanted. He says that if she really is down for a fling then so is he, and, after Xo reassures her one last time that she has nothing to feel guilty about, Jane gets her first time post-Michael out of the way. Honestly, this entire storyline was worth it just for the terrifically committed Sex and the City parody, wigs and all. If you’re someone who regularly receives calls from businesses that are robocalling, you might be able to file a spam call lawsuits to receive compensation for your ordeal.

Elsewhere, Xo and Rogelio tell a thrilled Jane about their engagement but insist that they want a small wedding. Jane and Alba are both surprised, at least until Xo privately tells Alba that she and Rogelio agreed a big wedding might remind Jane of her own. Alba understands but comes clean when Jane mentions that she does want them to have a big wedding. Jane tells Xo and Rog that having them back together is her dream come true, and she wants to celebrate that. Xo and Rogelio then happily begin planning the big day, with Rog obviously taking the reins.

At the start of the hour, Petra continues to ride with Chuck to figure out who J.P. is, completely unaware that he’s the man sitting next to her. They arrive at a shady hotel, and Petra finally gets a chance to check her phone. However, the only message she receives is the one where Rafael declares his love for her. After Raf hears that Chuck is a person of interest in Scott’s murder, he tries to call again to warn her. However, Petra, rattled by his previous message, ignores the call. She eventually puts it together on her own and lets Rafael know where she is. She runs outside, but Chuck chases her. He swears up and down that he only knew Scott through a deal gone bad and that he saw a woman on the beach the night of his murder. He also confesses that he was skittish all day because he was trying to tell Petra that he loves her. Two confessions of love? Not bad for a day’s work, Petra.

Back home, Petra’s still unclear on whether or not Chuck is guilty and is pretty rattled because of it. Rafael helps her out as much as he can but keeps his feelings to himself for now. However, when Petra admits that she heard his message, he confesses his feelings in person. Before she can respond, Dennis and Co. show up at the door with a sketch of the woman Chuck saw on the beach. It causes both Rafael and Petra to gasp, but we don’t get a look at it yet. But it’s Rose, guys. It’s obviously Rose.
