I'm feeling very sure Xo is not making it to the end of this series and this little health scare is to prepare the viewers for her ending. I don't think they can end this soap opera without a character dying (really dying with no silly games about amnesia). I do love the way the writers are able to easily switch back and forth between camp and true drama.
I'm not a Rafael fan at all, but observing the relationships dispassionately, I can certainly understand why he's saying "enough's enough. I've been through this before." He has never felt good enough or truly chosen. This is not an egotistical man but a weak and self doubting one, (not to mention parental issues). During Michael's return, he has attempted to be the new and improved Rafael, patient, understanding, undemanding, but this wavering on Jane's part was the icing on the cake. Of course, he should continue to hold on and give her time, but fear overcame logic. Don't fault him for expressing his disappointment and doubts, but the stupid thing was that he asked her to leave THAT VERY NIGHT, IMMEDIATELY.
Triangle tropes are a pain, but I think they're making this fairly interesting. There are no winners or losers here, just three very upset and entangled people.
I'm still on board for that threesome relationship. It's a brave new world, why are couples still the only option 😉 for a happily ever after?
