Pre-credit sequence. We begin at Nagarote, as I try to remember where we left off and what the names of the tribes were. Shirin is sad to have been blindsided and to have lost Max. "I don't know that I can trust you," Carolyn tells Shirin, further shunting her aside. Shirin protests that Max made her isolate herself, but Carolyn is being rough, making it clear that she wants no part of the newly solitary Shirin.

On Monday’s Jane the Virgin (The CW, 9/8c), the titular heroine preps her boyfriend/baby daddy Rafael for dinner with her family, but winning over her disapproving mom Xo will prove even harder than the couple fears.

“There’s definitely tension. Let’s put it that way,” Andrea Navedo previews.

For starters, Rafael rubs Xo the wrong way when he says Jane should do whatever she wants when it comes to her career, since he’ll take care of her and the baby financially.
