I don’t know who was more stressed out on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 14, me, Rogelio, or Xiomara.
Rogelio and Xiomara both had valid reasons for being on edge — a pilot pickup and waiting to hear if you got into nursing school are huge turning points in both of their careers.
But the narrator’s warning of an upcoming storm that would potentially ruin Jane and Raf’s episode loomed over the episode like a dark and stormy cloud.
Thankfully, the storm never came. Not really.
We anticipated the worst, but Jane and Rafael did an incredible job at avoiding the bumps in the road and dodging all the curveballs.
Instead, the usual issues that would have lead to their demise were overcome by communication.
It’s about damn time they learned to go with the flow, dance in the rain, and come out on the other side.
When Jane’s officiant plan fell apart, she didn’t dwell on it, nor did she take his comments about Raf not being present or committed as a sign that they shouldn’t get married.
Jane proved herself by defending her fiancee and celebrating how far he’s come.
It’s moments like these that highlight how strong this relationship would have been if they believed in each other from the beginning.
If they keep supporting each other and most importantly, learn how to talk things through, there won’t be any dealbreakers; nothing will be able to get in the way of their big day.
Jane the Virgin – Chapter One Hundred (5×19)
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 (5×17)
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 (5×16)
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.
