Are Rafael & Petra Getting Back Together On 'Jane The Virgin'? Her Pregnancy Is Bringing Them Closer Than Ever
While a majority of the episode was focused on Jane's various dating attempts on Jane the Virgin , there was another prominent relationship that also took center stage. I'm, of course, referring to whatever is happening between Rafael and Petra. Because judging by the looks of things, it seems as though this particular love story may not be over with after all. I'm not saying that this definitely means Rafael and Petra will get back together, but I think it's a definite possibility if things keep progressing the way that they are. These two have been through a lot together and now that Petra is pregnant with his child, Rafael may now look at her and see the family that he's always wanted.
Now, obviously, there's still the slight problem that he has very strong feelings for Jane, but that doesn't mean that he can't also have feelings for Petra as well. And given that Jane really isn't in the same emotional headspace as he is, that rejection could help push him into Petra's arms, at least for the time being. I've never really been the biggest Petra supporter, but she's definitely trying to change and become a better person, which shows that Rafael has a positive influence on her. They make a good team and even I couldn't help but get butterflies when he put his hand on her stomach to feel the babies kick.
I'm not saying it will be simple or that it won't have various obstacles to overcome, but I think this relationship could have a real shot of making it last this time around, so long as they don't resort back to their old ways. They have the power to make each other better people. Let's just hope that they keep journeying down this path of honesty and trust, and prove that, occasionally, it's the second time that's the charm.
