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 One Hundred Series Finale Review

Be brave.

That’s what Rafael told Jane when he first met her on Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 1, and five seasons later, the theme of braveness continued on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 19.

It should be noted that I had to tell myself to be brave while writing this review and wiping away so many happy tears.

As far as series finales go, Jane the Virgin’s hit every mark and was a treat for longtime fans.

One would say it was the inverse of what made Jane the Virgin such a household name; it bypassed the usual telenovela-twists and opted for happy endings all around.

There will always be things that I wish would have happened, but confined to a one-hour window, the finale was pretty perfect.

Jane The Virgin Chapter Ninety-Eight Review

How do we say goodbye?

Xiomara posed that very question at the end of Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 17, and nothing sums up my feelings more succinctly.

We’re almost at the end, and despite this being the weakest season to date, it’s still bittersweet.

Look, nothing against anyone on the Jane the Virgin team.

Putting together a final season is a tall order, and appeasing everyone is nearly impossible.

We’re always going to have a bone to pick with something. That’s just life.

Nevertheless, I’m enjoying this strange ride for what it is and soaking up these last moments with the Gloriana Villaneuva family.

The realistic moments of the episode were really great, but the moments that leaned heavily into telenovela territory fell short.

Rose’s masterplan was revealed and to be honest, it was lame and non-existent.

Everything she’s ever done was motivated by her love for Luisa.

She broke out of jail and created an army of minions in order to be with her one true love.

If Luisa hadn’t betrayed Rose, Rose wouldn’t have had any motive to come after Jane.

Rose has been an elusive and terrifying villain all these years, but she just felt like a run-of-the-mill villain when she ambushed Jane.

Yes, I was a nervous wreck the entire time, but only because I expected Rose to already have people at Mateo’s school waiting for him or something.

Did anyone even know where Mateo was at the time? And why did no one come to check in on Jane?

Then, Rose’s grand plan was to sneak into the This Is Mars party essentially wearing alien costumes from Spirit Halloween.

What happened to the plastic surgery genius who could change her appearance at the snap of her fingers?

The one who befriended Michael as Susanna and faked his whole death?

We needed that Rose to come out and play.

Jane the virgin Chapter Ninety-seven Review

The central theme of Jane the Virgin has always been family, but there have been plenty of other themes interposed in between.

One of those themes is crime, especially as it relates to Sin Rostro.

On Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 16, that reoccurring theme was embraced as Jane worked it into her novel, decided to confront Sin Rostro, and then watched her life crumble around in a similar way it did when Mateo was kidnapped.

Jane just cannot seem to shake Rose.

And the series “rose” the stakes with the great escape.

And though Rose finally broke free — you didn’t think she’d stay down for long, did you? —  we’re still no closer to figuring out her masterplan.

I have a feeling we won’t know until the very last moment. It’s possible whatever she’s cooked up will even interrupt Jane and Rafael’s wedding.

I’d be lying if I said that Rose’s escape was anything but electrifying.
