The Season 2 Christmas episode of Jane the Virgin ended on an alarming note—once again our sympathy goes to Petra—but it was the “mid-season finale” so we’ll have to wait till late January to see what happens.

Alarming or not, though, there sure was a lot of whimsical stuff this time.  Jane got so angry over Rafael’s deceptive ways that, yep, steam literally shot from her ears.  And she kept appearing in imaginary (story) roles as she tried to write a prize-winning tale—uh, watch the episode online and you’ll understand what I mean.

Jane’s baby wasn’t featured very much this time, and that’s okay by me.  Too much wild comedy went on for a tiny tot to often be on camera.  Really, it was a pretty festive episode even when things were going wrong for the characters.
