Recap / Jane the Virgin - "Chapter Sixty-Three"

Go To
Jane the Maid of Honor

"I just feel so lucky that I gave birth to my best friend."

Jane does not want to ask Fabian for a favor as they are not on the same page when it comes to their relationship and she wants to break up with him. Meanwhile, Petra and Rafael decide to give it another go, on Jane's advice. Elsewhere, Rafael cooperates with the police to lure Luisa back to the hotel so they can arrest her and Rose/Eileen whom they now suspect to be Scott's killer.


  • Fairy Tale: The connecting theme of this episode, based on Jane's early love of them and Xo's childhood wedding fantasies. Some scenes are laid out like in a fairy tale adaptation, and Mateo's class does a production of Cinderella.
  • Fairytale Wedding Dress: Discussed, Xo specifically mentions fairy tales as an inspiration for her dream big poofy white wedding dress.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: The fairy tales Jane reads to Mateo are specifically altered to be more progressive. Mateo lampshades it by pointing out that that's not how their school's production of Cinderella is going.

  • Friendship Moment: Desperate to talk to someone about her feelings, Petra admits that Jane is her only real friend. Jane, despite wanting to avoid getting in the middle of the Petra/Rafael conundrum, immediately relents and talks to her.
  • Hates Small Talk: Both Jean and Luc — one of them dislikes it, the other one loathes it, to be precise.
  • Pinocchio Nose: In keeping with the fairy tale theme, Jane's nose grows longer the more she pretends that she's happy she's inviting Fabian to the wedding.
  • Single-Minded Twins: Jean and Luc allegedly are never on the same page, but they're nearly identical in mannerisms and opinions on Rogelio and Xiomara's wedding.
  • Visual Pun: Instead of sending her to a stable, Fabian sends Jane to an empty field with lots of geese...a wild goose chase.
  • Wicked Stepmother: The episode is themed on the tropes of Fairy Tales and this trope is name dropped at Rose's return when the narrator calls her "the Wickedest Stepmother of them all".

How well does it match the trope?
