Jane The Virgin stuns fans with tragic turn of events
While most of the episode showed the trademark telenovela-inspired comedy, the ending stunned viewers with Michael’s death. Fans struggled to process the heartbreaking turn of events. Especially when they saw the glowing visual of Michael’s heart start to fade out. Jane and Michael had the perfect chemistry despite whatever life threw at them. Jane The Virgin showrunner Jennie Urman wrote to fans when she received an overwhelming response.
Taking to the show’s Tumblr account, Urman wrote a letter talk explaining that huge heartbreak. Her letter explained how Michael’s exit is a plan for a long time already. She also mentioned how the narrator kept hinting on Michael’s impending demise, saying “for as long as Michael lived, until he drew his very last breath, he never did.”
Despite all this, Urman emphasized that Jane’s story and happiness is far from over. “She’ll always feel Michael’s absence, while allowing for the light and bright Jane world that we love to write,” Urman said.
Did Jane The Virgin‘s writers make the right choice in killing off Michael? Everyone is sure to miss Brett Dier’s goofy charm. Sound off in the comments below!
