Keeping us all on the edge of our seats for almost the entire episode, Michael's fate on Jane the Virgin was finally revealed and he lived! Although it was very touch and go at times Michael lives to love Jane another day and we couldn't be happier. The Season 3 premiere of the Jane the Virgin began right where we left off with Jane running into the hallway looking for Michael only to find him shot and severely wounded on the floor. Frantically calling for help we hear Jane say the words we needed to hear: "You're breathing."
But just because Michael had survived the wound long enough for Jane to come and find him, we all couldn't help but wonder if he'd make it all the way to the end of the premiere. After being rushed to the hospital the doctor told Jane and her family that Michael was in critical condition since the bullet thankfully missed his heart, but hit some major arteries nonetheless. They promised they would do the best they could but really that wasn't comforting to anyone. In the midst of our despair the writers of Jane of the Virgin let us have some reprieve by giving us flashbacks of what happened right after Jane and Michael first kissed. It turns out there was actually another guy in the picture at the start of Michael and Jane's relationship, but that didn't stop Michael from getting the girl in the end.
Meanwhile, in the present, although Michael was stable there were bone fragments around his spine and it was swollen. Jane was given two options: wait and hope the swelling went down, but risk Michael's being paralyzed from the waist down or have Michael undergo surgery to prevent paralysis but risk him dying on the table. As his wife, it was Jane's call to make, but Michael's mom (who was already driving everyone crazy), wanted to make the decision. Thankfully, in the end, the two agreed that if Michael could choose for himself, he would want the surgery and in the end it was the right choice.
Michael made it through surgery but when he woke up he unfortunately didn't recognize Jane.
"Who are you?" he asked, when he saw her.
After almost giving us all a heart attack, Michael revealed he was just kidding and actually remembers everything, including who shot him. He revealed that it was actually Susanna Barnett (aka Rose) who shot him. Luckily for Rose, she's already disappeared from the Marbella and has taken Luisa with her. It's unclear what Rose's plan is exactly, but for now let us all just be happy that Michael gets to live another day.
