'Jane The Virgin' Season 3 Showrunner Rewrites Story Because Of Donald Trump Remarks
Donald Trump is on fire and it is not as good as people think it is. Even the series "Jane the Virgin" season 3 has had recent changes because of the Republican nominee's leaked video. The video drew a lot of flak and attention as it showcased some inappropriate and harsh remarks about sexually harassing women.
"Jane the Virgin" showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman is one of those who found the video upsetting. In fact, she revealed she had to rewrite a part of "Jane the Virgin" season 3 premiere episode to make things right.
The original scene was supposed to have Michael Cordero (Brett Dier) running after Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez) to give her a surprise kiss. As per reports, Urman felt uncomfortable with having a gray area in terms of consent.
"Those little symbols [of male aggression and lack of consent] are dangerous right now in terms of what we're talking about and what we're faced with," Urman stated.
In the rewritten version, viewers would see Michael politely show up at her door and ask if he could kiss her again, sober. In the scene, Jane would appear perplexed and overwhelmed with Michael's perseverance. She then agrees to his request and a blooming romance follows.
The series creator expressed a better sense of fulfillment with the new version because it conveys the right message regarding female consent. She acknowledged her responsibility to make sure she does not stir any confusion or aggravate an existing problem.
On another note, Urman also touched the scene depicting Jane's first time to have sex with her husband. According to her interview with Vulture, the show tries to live in the space between fantasy and reality. The scene of Jane faking an orgasm to please his husband made it more realistic. Followers of the show can definitely look forward to more of Jane's adventures in the upcoming episodes.
"Jane The Virgin" season 3 airs at 9 p.m. ET every Monday on The CW.
