The romantic satire is all set to return later this month with one of the biggest new shows of 2015 returning from its winter break. The CW will air Jane the Virgin season 2 episode 9, its mid-season premiere, on January 25 at 9 p.m. EST. The second half of the season will twist the life of Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez), the show’s leading character, with the entry of her grandmother and her change of heart towards the professor.
Spoilers of the show have revealed that the rest of the second season will also see veteran actor Rita Moreno making her small screen comeback once again by reprising the role of Jane’s grandma, Liliana De La Vega, mother of Jane’s dad Rogelio (Jaime Camil). It will be the first time that grandma will see Jane’s newborn child, her grandson. The show’s mid-season teaser also shows that grandma Liliana has a bombshell of her own—she reveals that her husband, Jane’s grandfather, has actually realized that he’s gay and has left her for another man! On discovering the breaking news about his father, Rogelio finds it hard to digest—he tries to be subtle about it, only it fails miserably.
Apart from this, the rest of the second season is about to unravel Jane’s love life. The first season saw her stuck between two men. It’s not quite clear whether or not the rest of this season will sort out her romantic life; after all, that’s the catchy storyline that makes this show hilarious.
However, that hasn’t stopped fans from posing their own theories; like that Jane might have a change of heart about her once-unsympathetic grad school teacher, Professor Jonathan Chavez (Adam Rodriguez), who has started mentoring her. Although this season’s first half saw the progress of her relationship with Prof. Chavez, it’s the season’s next half that will reveal whether or not things really get resolved (or more complicated).
The show’s fans might be upset about Gina Rodriguez losing at the Golden Globes last week in her nomination for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, especially since she had bagged the same award last year. But the good news is that critics have loved the show’s first season, which has led to the airing of its second. Unfortunately, however, the show isn’t entirely out of the woods yet, because the current ratings of the second season, in comparison to the first, have dropped. That being said, the show’s renewal odds for season three are still moderately high. The hope is that Jane the Virgin season 2 episode 9 will kick-start another season of higher-than-expected ratings.
Everyone’s obviously keen to find out how the Villanueva family, especially Rogelio, handles the truth about Jane’s grandfather. Will Jane encounter another romantic affair this season, or will things take a turn for the worst with the professor? You’ll have to wait till next Monday (January 25) to watch Jane the Virgin season 2 episode 9, titled Chapter Thirty-One, which airs on The CW at 9 p.m. EST. Till then, check out the episode’s priceless promo.
