This week saw the finale of "Jane the Virgin" season 3, which successfully brought about the waterworks in its last two episodes. During the finale, viewers got to see some flashbacks of the late Michael (Brett Dier) and how he continues to influence Jane's (Gina Rodriguez) life. The show also hinted about a possible Jane-Rafael reunion, romantically, and it seems that the story arc will draw itself out in "Jane the Virgin" Season 4.

The finale didn't come without twists, however, as it also featured Darci Factor (guest star Justina Machado) returning to announce that she's seven months pregnant with Rogelio's (Jaime Camil) child.

Another shocking twist came in the form of the revenge of the sisters, when Rafael's (Justin Baldoni) sister, Luisa (Yara Martinez) turns on him after they finally caught her lover, Sin Rostro (Bridget Regan). Anezka, on the other hand, tricks Petra (Yael Grobglas) and draws her outside of the hotel only to point a gun at her, threatening her life over the death of Scott. With all the major shifts this season, where will we find these characters?

Creator Jennie Snyder Urman promises 'joyful' fourth season

Following the shocking death of Michael this season, "Jane the Virgin" creator Jennie Snyder Urman promises that there will be a happier fourth season for The CW show. She recently spoke to Deadline, saying that "Season 4 is going to be about 'recapturing the joy...I want to see Jane fight for her joy, I want to see her go after her happiness, I want to see her open herself up to a new, evolved version of 'happily ever after."

Show to hint at more Jane-Rafael romantic entanglement

Of course, what's a telenovela without the romance?

The season finale of "Jane the Virgin" saw the introduction of Tyler Posey's Adam, Jane's first love and new love interest. Posey is currently on recurring guest star status as per Variety, which means that he might not stay long, but may stay long enough to be in a love triangle with Jane and Rafael. Jennie Snyder Urman, however, clarified that "we aren’t looking at a traditional love triangle with those three," so fans will have to wait for "Jane the Virgin" season 4 to find out exactly what that means.

Who is Jane 'meant to be' with?

During the finale, "Jane the Virgin" showed the titular character realizing how "meant to be" might not always mean "meant to be with one and one person only." In fact, for a moment there, viewers saw how Michael's life and death would play a role in Jane finding Adam again, or eventually, if she ends up with Rafael, Jane realizing that she still loves Rafael.

Not that Michael was merely a footnote in Jane's love story, but in fact, an integral part of her life. Jennie Snyder Urman's statements also reflect this same ideology: "Our show likes to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct the idea of 'meant to be'. Whereas Jane started off believing whole-heartedly in the idea that you are 'meant to' be with one person, as she matures, and the show matures, we look at that question, and ask if it’s really true. Or is life, and romantic love, more about timing?"

"Jane the Virgin" season 4 returns to The CW this fall.
