Chapter Four is the 4th episode of CW dramedy Jane the Virgin.
THE UNEXPECTED – In addition to being overwhelmed with all the wedding planning, Jane begins to feel guilty about her emerging feelings towards Rafael and decides to tell Michael during their pre-wedding counseling. Elsewhere, Rafael and Petra are faced with someone from their past and neither are happy about it. Meanwhile, Rogelio learns about Jane's impending nuptials and pushes Xo to let him be part of his daughter's wedding.
|The episode begins with a flashback to Jane's first wedding – to her mother. In the present the Villanueva women and Michael are at the kitchen table wedding planning. Between a potential food truck, flowers, bridal shop appointments, Jane is feeling overwhelmed- especially when she sees Rafael's face in one of the magazine.
Michael is allowed to sleepover (with the door open) and the two of them makeout before going to bed. Jane is then seen moaning telling Michael she wants him so bad- TO REVEAL RAFAEL UNDER THE SHEETS.
The next morning at The Marbella, Rafael and Petra discuss Zaz's murder both knowing that she was the one that Zaz was sleeping with but not admitting anything. At Jane's house, Michael discusses going to the Pre-Cana at noon before leaving for work. Jane confesses to her mother about her dream and how Jane shouldn't tell Michael about it. Xo recommends keeping a safe four feet distance from him.
Jane goes to work thinking that she will avoid Rafael at all costs but it's harder than she thinks. He tries to hug her and she refuses, saying she has a cold. Rafael tells her about a magazine article that is being written about hotel owners and she zones out looking at his face. The magazine (not that Jane knows this) has sent ahead questions for Raf to answer and there's one that he hasn't done yet and thought that maybe since she's a writer she could give it a shot. Focus on the suites- but Jane wasn't paying attention and agrees to help answer the question anyway.
Rose comes to Rafael's office, worried about Luisa. He tells her that she's probably drinking and then goes to talk to his father about Zaz's memorial. Mr. Solano is upset about the bad press and he insists that he needs to stick around to "supervise" and by supervise he means bring in his VP, Lachlan Moore.
Flashback to a few years ago, where Rafael enters a business dinner with a woman on his arm. He thinks he will get the company and not have to work because of the "whipping boy" Lachlan. Instead, Lachlan is given the title of Senior Vice President.
Back to the present, Raf informs his father that the Marbella is his hotel, but his father is the principal owner. Lachlan is smug.
At the Pre-Cana, the priest tells Michael and Jane that teamwork is key. They mention her having another's baby and the priest asks if there is a connection. Jane says no a little too slowly. Michael presses on and Jane admits to her sex dream. Upset, Michael leaves the church.
Over to Michael at work, he is showing Petra the crime scene photos so Nadine won't arrest her. Petra has no alibi and won't tell him where she was. She suggests that she look in the room.
Rogelio is still at the hotel. Frankie thinks Rogelio wants Jane (and she is correct, just not for the same reasons). They talk about Jane's upcoming wedding and he says it was too fast. Jane walks away from the awkward conversation and runs into RAFAEL. As the narrator calls it, "A rock and a hard place". She opts for the hard place and Rafael asks how the article is going. She says it will be done soon and as she turns to run away- falls into the pool. Rafael jumps in after her, to which she replies "It's Four Feet, Baywatch!" The two of them can easily stand in the water, and Rafael pushes Jane's hair back off her face very romantic stylez-
And there's Michael. The two of them talk about how Jane is trying to put distance between her and Rafael. t Michael counters that it shouldn't be that hard and that if she has feeling for Rafael then they shouldn't be getting married.
Xo is not having much luck with men either, while Rogelio calls to say he wants to meet Jane,he tells her the two of them are just "excellent" sex. Jane comes home, upset about the day's events.
Back at Jane's "first" wedding, Xo is lying about Jane's father being in the army. She says he was handsome and that a special hug made Jane. Xo suggests that Jane gets rid of the mental picture of her and Rafael in Michael's brain. Jane knows what Michael likes and decides to write him a sexy story.
Petra and Rafael are arguing in the hotel lobby about an expansion deal – where Lachlan overhears them. He later comes to Petra – where we learn that THEY WERE ENGAGED THE NIGHT LACHLAN GOT THE PROMOTION! Rafael eyes Petra from across the room...
Petra and Lachlan talk about how her marriage is going and how she ended their engagement to marry Rafael. He wants to know more about the expansion deal. They agree to screw over Rafael.
The next morning Rogelio shows up at the Villanueva house, apologetic for the mix-up with the bracelet. He gives her a new gift that is inscribed to "For Xiomara, the Beautiful Mother of My Daughter." Xo admits that she hasn't told Jane because she doesn't want her daughter to hate her.
Lachlan comes in to call a board meeting, leaving Rafael stumped.
Michael pleads with his boss for more time, while Nadine argues for Petra's arrest.Jane comes over to see if Michael had read her sexy story- AND SHE ACCIDENTALLY GAVE IT TO RAFAEL!!
Rafael, while telling her she is an excellent writer, politely tells her that the "caramel scenario" is not gonna happen, while Jane explains that the letter was for Michael.
Rafael then tells Jane that he sees her like a sister, which seems to abrade her attraction to Rafael.
Michael sneaks Petra into the murder scene and Jane confronts him about their awkwardness. Petra notices a bump in the wall and Michael discovers it was not in the police footage. As Nadine is about to arrest Petra, Michael discovers that a luggage trolley could have easily made the mark in the room- which was after Petra left.
Jane goes to the Bridal Shop another woman and her father, thinking back to what her mother told her about hers. In full Santos costume, Rogelio is outside of the bridal shop!!!
Lachlan makes his pitch to the board. Rafael however has his own proposal which includes environmental impact and zoning issues and tax incentives to triple their revenue-
AND PETRA SCREWED HIM OVER AGAIN!
Raf and Petra toast to their success over Lachlan. This gives Petra a false sense of security and then – RAFAEL ASKS HOW LONG SHE'D BEEN SLEEPING WITH ZAZ AND HE WANTS A DIVORCE. But he does appreciate her help with Lachlan.
Back at the bridal shop, Michael shows up while Jane is trying on dresses. He walks in backwards, Jane walks backwards. He is afraid that Jane wants to keep the baby but losing Jane would be his worst case scenario! HE IS ALL IN! HE WILL RAISE THE BABY TOGETHER!
THEY LOVE EACH OTHER AND ITS BEAUTIFUL. HE FINALLY GETS HIS LETTER.
also Rose calls Luisa and- RAF WILL LOSE HIS SHARE OF THE HOTEL if she doesn't come back.
Petra speaks Czech to a man in the parking lot and says she has his money. He says he wants more- AND HE CALLS HER NATALIA?
Back at the bridal shop, a mob of women is outside and Rogelio rushes in. Xo tells him to tell her. And he tells her he's her father!
Jane breaks down telling her family to leave.
Jane drifts off to sleep and she has the dream about Rafael again-
