Jane The Virgin

Jane the Virgin – Chapter Eighty-Two (5×01)



I’m an emotional mess after watching Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 1.

My emotions are in line with what Jane was experiencing during her epic meltdown!

This is the fifth and final season of the beloved CW show, and it breaks my heart. It’s always sad when genuinely good things come to an end.

I’m not ready to say goodbye, but it’s comforting to know that the writers aren’t going to let either Team Rafael or Team Michael fans down.

The beginning of the end kicked off with the most dramatic reveal ever — Michael is alive.

Michael goes by the Jason now, he’s lived in Montana for four years, and he’s more of a dog person than a cat person these days.

If you read my Jane the Virgin: Questions We Need Addressed Before the Series Ends slideshow, you know that my gut feeling was that Michael suffered from amnesia.

And you now know I did my happy dance when it was revealed that my hunch was right.

But the implications of Michael’s resurrection have deeply affected everyone including Rogelio who is the most hurt by his brogelio Michael not remembering him.

Jane the Virgin Chapter Eighty-Five Review

Nightmares manifest themselves in various shapes and sizes on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 4, including Rafael and Michael chasing Jane with huge cups of tea.

Yep, that explains the wedding dress scene we saw in spoilers!

Turns out, one of Jane’s biggest nightmares isn’t finding out her father wants to take her away from her family or being forced to jump off of a huge waterfall, it’s losing Rafael.

And that’s exactly what happened by the end of the hour.

Similar to Michael, Rafael got his memories back and realized that this situation felt all too familiar.

What Do I Do? - Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 4

We’ve been at the Michael vs. Rafael crossroads before a few seasons back, and as we all know, it didn’t end well for Rafael.

I’m focusing on Rafael regaining his memories first rather than Michael because I feel like it’s a major turning point for the series.

Up until now, it’s always been Jane’s way or no way.

Jane was in charge of her fate and thus, in charge of choosing which man would be the keeper of her heart.

Both Michael and Rafael had to accept whatever decision she made and move on accordingly.

Jane The Virgin -- Chapter Eighty-Four review


Michael’s memory came back on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 3 — at least, it seemed like it did — but the way it happened was rather unexciting.

I’ve thought about how this could possibly unravel plenty of times since the season premiere.

I’d envisioned numerous ways that he could have gotten his memory back that would be more drama-filled: Michael could have remembered when Jane was getting married to Rafael thus halting the wedding or he could have remembered upon seeing Mateo.

But alas, it was snowfall– a signature moment in the show that indicates romance between Jane and Michael — that did the trick and clicked in his mind.

Sure, it’s a cute touch, but I’d rather the snowfall during some romantic moment, not because a fishing rod chipped the ceiling and triggered the memories.

Instead of feeling the emotions of those memories flooding in, all I could think was “that damn fishing rod.”

This is going to trigger some of you Michael fans, but as a Rafael fan, I’m kind of upset he remembered at all.

There was finally a resolution that would move past this love triangle.

Jane the Virgin – Chapter Eighty-Three (5×02)



Jane the Virgin Chapter Eighty Three

Catholic guilt, normal guilt, Jane experienced it all on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 2.

And how could she not?

She’s built up this great life with Rafael, but she feels guilty about it because of Michael’s return.

And though she should be happy Michale is alive, she’s also made so much progress to get over him, and now, he’s messing up all of that progress. Not intentionally, of course, but it’s still happening.

This had lead Jane to she unwillingly wish that he never came back, which, in turn, makes her feel even more guilty.

At the same time, she knows that if Michael were to get his memories back, she could very well develop feelings for him again, which increases her guilt because of her love for Rafael.
