Fear was making everyone act irrationally on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13, but it’s how they overcame their fears that really strengthened the episode and gave it weight.

To quote Jane, she and Rafael are “engaged, finally!”

It’s been a long time coming, but the road hasn’t been an easy one.

Worried About Xo - Jane the Virgin

Rafael and Jane’s relationship has been bumpy and filled with ups and downs, so it only made sense that their decision to get married was just the same.

In the span of an hour, Rafael proposed to Jane, they agreed to a courthouse wedding, attempted to plan something classier, settled for a next-day option, and eventually, postponed things altogether.

And they even addressed the elephant in the room: Michael, which was overdue and necessary.

Jane and Rafael’s reunion on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 12 had the makings of a genuine JTV moment, even if the musical was a little too much, but the consensus from the fandom was that there wasn’t enough build-up leading up to it.

One minute they were over and the next, they were madly in love again.

It was as if someone flipped a switch.

And it’s so easy to get caught up in the romantics of it all, but it seemed like they wanted to gloss over all Jane and Raf’s relationship issues as he got down on one knee and proposed to Jane.

But alas, Mateo brought them all down to reality again by admitting that he wasn’t excited about a potential wedding because he didn’t think it would actually happen.

So, it’s not just us getting sick and tired of this pattern between #Jafael? Good to know.

Kids are much more receptive than we realize.

Mateo forced his parents to talk about what went wrong between them and admit why they were rushing the wedding in the first place.

Rafael wanted to lock things down with Jane because deep down inside, he was insecure and afraid she’d leave.

His feelings were valid, though, I wasn’t interested in seeing him throw tantrums over Montana again. I thought we accepted that Jane needed to explore her feelings!

As for Jane, she agreed to a quickie wedding out of guilt; she didn’t want to keep disappointing Rafael anymore than she already had.

There was nothing romantic about their desire to get married, which made it a recipe for disaster.

If Jane and Raf couldn’t work through their issues before getting married, they’d never work after getting married.

It’s not a magical cure. Marriage only works if the relationship works.

Everything about their upcoming nuptials was wrong.

The fact that Jane referred it to “just a quickie wedding” was enough to tell you that this shouldn’t have been happening.

For someone who has grown up watching telenovela style fairytales, this wasn’t the wedding Jane would ever want regardless if she previously had her big dream wedding.

Secondly, she’s a planner for goodness sakes — you cannot spring up last minute situations on her and assume she’s going to be cool, calm, and collected.

Rafael should have known better, and I’m slightly disappointed that he didn’t.

I Don't Want to do This Now - Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13

She didn’t even look happy on a day that’s supposed to be one of the happiest in your life, probably only second to her first wedding.

When Jane and Raf eventually talked things through, they realized there was a lot to work on and rushing things wasn’t going to fix them.

Raf needed to learn how to trust Jane again; Jane needed to own her decisions about Michael and Montana and stop feeling guilty about them.

As a #Jafael fan from the get-go, I let out of happy sigh of relief when they decided to postpone the wedding until they could properly plan it.

Though, I’m not reassured by the narrator hoping the “real wedding would go as smoothly” before adding that it “was not in the cards.”

The series has purposefully pushed to the side every storyline concerning Sin Rostro and Luisa.

TV Shows to Binge During Your Self-Quarantine and Social Distancing

TV Shows to watch While Working from Home Coronavirus

In case you haven’t been keeping up with global news, coronavirus, COVID-19, is forcing everyone to practice the 2020 version of”conscious uncoupling” known as “social distancing.”

Many cities/states are on lockdown with bars, restaurants, and other establishments closing their doors to keep the outbreak from spreading even more than it has.

If you’ve found yourself self-quarantined at home on the couch to prevent the spread of germs, you’ll likely be looking for things to keep yourself occupied.

Many shows have shuttered production with daytime and late-night talk shows going sans audiences or completely dark for the remainder of the month.

And this means it’s the perfect time to binge-watch those shows you’ve been putting off.

Here are some shows to watch during your self-quarantine.

 

Scandal

What the world needs now is a fixer who could tell us all how to get out of this mess. Since that’s not possible, we have the next best thing in Olivia Pope, DC’s fixer and right-hand to the President, who is also in a torrid love affair with him. It’s political, dramatic, and sexy as hell to this day.

 

Timeless

Don’t you wish we could all travel back to a time before the coronavirus? Same. Maybe if we had a time machine like Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus, we totally could. But alas, we’ll have to settle for watching their journey through key historical moments as they attempt to stop Rittenhouse from destroying the world.

 

 

Locke & Key

Think Harry Potter meets Narnia. Netflix’s new fantasy thriller finds a family moving into a mansion following their father’s death where they learn that it’s filled with secret keys that open up portals to other dimensions. You never know where you’ll end up, but it’ll make you forget you’re curled up on your couch amidst a toilet-paper shortage.

 

Mr. Robot

Elliot works as a cybersecurity engineer by day and doubles as a vigilante hacker by night. When he’s recruited by a mysterious underground organization, he’s forced to do things that make him question his personal beliefs, his morals, and most importantly, what’s real and what isn’t.

Financial burdens (like the fact that you spent all your money stocking up on canned goods and paper towels) plague three suburban moms who are tired of always playing “catch up.” They decide to take matters into their own hands and rob a grocery store. Soon, they find themselves trying to navigate a world of crime that has absolutely no rules. As they try to survive, their actions will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Stranger Things

You’ve already heard of Stranger Things, and if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s high time you do. The series takes place in 1980s Indiana and follows a group of young friends who become privy to supernatural happening within the government.

Grey’s Anatomy

There’s no better time than during a quarantine to watch all 16 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. Honestly, when else are you going to have the time? All you need to know is that it’s a medical drama, there’s a doctor named McDreamy, and Shonda Rhimes is the boss babe behind it.

 

The Good Place 

The Good Place is a stroke of comedic genius mixed with some of the most insightful and wholesome storytelling of our generation. It’s also the only series that had the perfect series finale (fight me, but after coronavirus cause there’s a no-touching ban). Eleanor Shellstrop is shocked to find herself in the Good Place following her death and immediately realizes she’s there by mistake. No one is prepared for her hilarious afterlife antics as she hides from architect Michael and her new friends while trying to become a better version of herself.

Don’t be deterred by the plot — a young Latina woman learns she’s pregnant after she’s accidentally artificially inseminated. The series weaves together the best parts of a telenovela while adding heart, feshed-out characters, strong female leads, irresistible love interests, and family at the forefront of every storyline.

 

Love is Blind

In the reality TV vein, Netflix delivered the world’s newest obsession. It’s a social experiment that many claim prepared our generation for dating throughout “social distancing.” Love is Blind forces a handful of contestants to meet people while isolated in pods. Once they find their “soulmate,” they propose to them without meeting face-to-face and a few weeks later, walk down the aisle.

 

YOU

If you’re not familiar with Joe Goldberg, you’re missing out. YOU is a suspenseful thriller that digs into the mind of an obsessed serial killer and follows his romantic relationships.

 

Game of Thrones

Similarly to Greys Anatomy, when else are you going to find the time to watch all of Game of Thrones? This is the perfect time to dig into a pop culture phenomenon so you know what “winter is coming” means the next time someone mentions it.

 

The Marvelous Ms. Maisel

If there’s anyone that can cheer you up and put a smile on your face, it’s Ms. Maisel. Set in the late 1950s, Miriam aka “Midge” breaks the rules and pursues a career in stand-up comedy. While it’s unheard of for women of her class to pursue a career, it’s even more unheard of a woman succeeding in such an industry. But leave it to Midge to prove everyone wrong and do it with flair and style!

Binge. Enjoy. And wash your hands!

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.
