Gina Rodriguez, Justin Baldoni, Jane the Virgin

There's nothing more awkward than making a grand gesture while proposing to the woman you love and getting rejected.

Well, actually there's nothing more awkward than doing that publicly to the woman carrying your child and getting rejected, only to see her then laughing with her ex. Ouch.

Jane the Virgin's Rafael (Justin Baldoni) had to endure just that last week on the CW telenovela, and fans can expect that he won't soon forget it.

We caught up with Baldoni before Jane the Virgin's Paleyfest panel to find out what's coming up for Rafael now that he's licking his wounds over Jane (Gina Rodriguez) rejecting his proposal.

"I wish it meant that it was smooth sailing," Baldoni tells E! News. "But it's not. I wish I could tell you what happens, but I know that some real stuff is going to go down. It's not the beginning of the end, but it's the beginning of a lot of real stuff. We're going to see a lot of surprising stuff in this relationship."

And now that Rafael and Jane have hit a road block in their relationship, does that mean Michael's back in the running for her heart?

"That guy just won't go away!" Baldoni jokes. "Michael's definitely still in the picture. The love triangle is very much alive."

Rodriguez couldn't be more proud of Jane the show itself for allowing Jane to turn down a proposal that wasn't right for her at the time, especially for the kind of message it sends young girls who watch the show.

"I think it's fantastic that that's what they decided to have Jane do, because ultimately she isn't ready for that kind of step," Rodriguez tells E! News. "Nothing should be done in a rush. Nothing should be done because of some other circumstance. I love her ability to take it slow and slow down and take it step by step."

Plus, get the scoop on Jane Seymour's upcoming "not Jane Seymour-esque" role from the rest of Rodriguez's interview above!

Jane the Virgin airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on the CW.
