Jane the Virgin – Chapter Ninety (5×09)

Published

At the start of Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 9, it felt as if the writers were gearing up for the end.

The stories were being neatly wrapped up in a bow.

Michael’s presence enveloped much of the first half of the season, but now, Jane’s closed the chapter on her back-from-the-dead husband.

While her relationship with Rafael remains uncertain, it’s comforting to know that they’ll always be connected because they’re family.

Jane kicked off Jane the Virgin Season 1 without a father but now, she’s wearing matching suits with her dad, writing his telenovela script and even embracing the wacky things he does out of love.

Xo’s health is on the mend, JR and Petra’s rocky relationship is trying to smooth out the edges, and Alba’s love for Jorge was reciprocated leading them down the aisle and right into the bedroom. Talk about a happily ever after.

By all means, it seems the writers are heading for closure.

Until those final few scenes involving Rafael, Luisa, and Mateo.

We know there are still ten episodes left in the season, which in TV show terms means there’s room for a few last minute twists, turns, and unexpected deaths.

The show has always dabbled in high stakes drama mixed with pure family moments and this episode followed the formula from beginning to end.

While the Villaneuva women were celebrating Alba’s wedding and huddling up for an emotional chit chat in the church rather than the porch swing set, it was inevitable that Rose’s diabolical plan was going to bulldoze every shred of happiness and progress.

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.
