They had decided on these storylines, both gave roughly the same answer: It just made sense for the characters when I asked showrunners Jennie Snyder Urman (Jane the Virgin) and Aline Brosh McKenna (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) why.
вЂњI became thinking on how Petra might be astonished and swept off her legs and realize things about by herself that she didnвЂ™t understand,вЂќ Urman stated. Since Petra has вЂњalways utilized intercourse being a commodity in relationships,вЂќ her realization it never had before that she might not just admire J.R. but be drawn to her romantically opened up her storyline in a way.
The held that is same for Valencia. вЂњWe began to consider what it might seem like on her behalf to fall deeply in love with someone,вЂќ said Brosh McKenna, вЂњand someone stated, вЂIt might be a female.вЂ™ It felt organic.вЂќ
While Crazy Ex-Girlfriend devoted the required time and a individualized track whenever Darryl arrived on the scene as bisexual earlier (more on him later on), Brosh McKenna emphasized that them maybe not doing the exact same for Valencia didnвЂ™t suggest they took her sex less really. In fact, she said, it simply designed these people were considering just exactly what she as a character would do. вЂњValencia ended up being trying to satisfy somebody who respects her cleverness, her humor, and job ambitions,вЂќ Brosh McKenna said. See your face вЂњjust so been Beth.вЂќ
Urman also stated Petra as being a character whom makes a place of maybe perhaps not dwelling on her behalf emotions, which led them to err toward her almost straight away accepting her attraction to J.R. ItвЂ™s the justification that is same in reality, that the nice spot creator Mike Schur utilized to describe why the show never clearly had its salty protagonist Eleanor (Kristen Bell) examine her increasingly clear lust for Tahani (Jameela Jamil) either.
