Concern was making everybody act irrationally on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13, nevertheless it’s how they overcame their fears that actually strengthened the episode and gave it weight. 

To cite Jane, she and Rafael are “engaged, lastly!”

It has been a very long time coming, however the street hasn’t been a simple one. 

Worried About Xo - Jane the Virgin

Rafael and Jane’s relationship has been bumpy and full of ups and downs, so it solely made sense that their choice to get married was simply the identical. 

Within the span of an hour, Rafael proposed to Jane, they agreed to a courthouse wedding ceremony, tried to plan one thing classier, settled for a next-day choice, and finally, postponed issues altogether.

They usually even addressed the elephant within the room: Michael, which was overdue and vital. 

Jane and Rafael’s reunion on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 12 had the makings of a real JTV second, even when the musical was somewhat an excessive amount of, however the consensus from the fandom was that there wasn’t sufficient build-up main as much as it. 

One minute they have been over and the subsequent, they have been head over heels in love once more.

It was as if somebody flipped a change. 

And it is really easy to get caught up within the romantics of all of it, nevertheless it appeared like they wished to gloss over all Jane and Raf’s relationship points as he bought down on one knee and proposed to Jane. 

However alas, Mateo introduced all of them right down to actuality once more by admitting that he wasn’t excited a couple of potential wedding ceremony as a result of he did not suppose it might truly occur. 

So, it isn’t simply us getting sick and bored with this sample between #Jafael? Good to know. 

Petra: You might want to go away.
Jane: Why?
Petra: As a result of I am upset with you, Jane.
Jane: Clearly, however why?
Petra: Why do you suppose? Okay, first you abandon me and now this entire maid of honor factor. I’ve by no means been one. Okay? And regardless that I do not wish to put on some poofy mint inexperienced gown, I used to be prepared to do it as a result of it is one thing individuals do once they have good buddies, and you’re my solely probability.
Jane: Oh, Petra.

Children are rather more receptive than we understand. 

Mateo pressured his dad and mom to speak about what went fallacious between them and admit why they have been speeding the marriage within the first place. 

Rafael wished to lock issues down with Jane as a result of deep down inside he was insecure and afraid she’d go away.

His emotions have been legitimate, although, I wasn’t keen on seeing him throw tantrums over Montana once more. I believed we accepted that Jane wanted to discover her emotions! 

As for Jane, she agreed to a quickie wedding ceremony out of guilt; she did not wish to preserve disappointing Rafael anymore than she already had. 

Play a Game - Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13

Mainly, there was nothing romantic about their want to get married, which made it a recipe for catastrophe. 

If Jane and Raf could not work by means of their points earlier than getting married, they’d by no means work after getting married. 

It is not a magical treatment. Marriage solely works if the connection works. 

Every part about their upcoming nuptials was fallacious. 

And possibly it’s going to take time so that you can belief this, however I need you to know that I wish to marry you and spend my life with you as a result of I selected you Rafael, and I’ll preserve selecting you each single day for the remainder of our lives. I am severe. When you ever attempt to go away me, I am going with you.


The truth that Jane referred it to “only a quickie wedding ceremony” was sufficient to inform you that this should not have been taking place. 

For somebody who has grown up watching telenovela type fairytales, this wasn’t the marriage Jane would ever need regardless if she beforehand had her large dream wedding ceremony.

Secondly, she’s a planner for goodness sakes — you can’t spring up final minute conditions on her and assume she’s going to be cool, calm, and picked up. 

Rafael ought to have identified higher, and I am barely upset that he did not.

She did not even look completely satisfied on a day that is alleged to be one of many happiest in your life, most likely solely second to her first wedding ceremony. 

When Jane and Raf finally talked issues by means of, they realized there was lots to work on and speeding issues wasn’t going to repair them. 

Rafael: Please, I haven’t got anybody else on my aspect. You will have your mother, and your grandma, and your dad, I used to have Luisa however not anymore. I do know what it is prefer to really feel deserted, and thru all of it, Petra has been a relentless in my life for higher or worse. I actually need her by my aspect for this.
Jane: Ugh, okay, advantageous.
Petra; So, it is settled. I will be Rafael’s finest man.

Raf wanted to discover ways to belief Jane once more; Jane wanted to personal her choices about Michael and Montana and cease feeling responsible about them. 

As a #Jafael fan from the get-go, I let loose of completely satisfied sigh of reduction once they determined to postpone the marriage till they might correctly plan it. 

Although, I am not reassured by the narrator hoping the “actual wedding ceremony would go as easily” earlier than including that it “was not within the playing cards.”

Hard Work - Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13

The sequence has purposefully pushed to the aspect each storyline regarding Sin Rostro and Luisa. 

Will they be chargeable for screwing up Jane and Raf’s large second?

Does that imply they will by no means get their completely satisfied ending?

To make up for all of the Rafael and Jane drama, and the truth that their large epic kiss fell a bit flat on Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 12, the episode gave us not one however three insanely cute moments. 

The primary was Rafael’s proposal. 

How spectacular is he at winging marriage proposals? 

The playing cards from Loteria each referred to as again to Jane the Virgin Season 1. The siren was the costume Jane was carrying the primary time they locked eyes, and the tree, nicely, it is the tree the place they shared their magical first kiss. 

What Aren't You Telling Us? - Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13

It might have been barely extra touching if Loteria had been a sport that the Villaneuva girls performed all through the sequence. 

Jane’s pre-wedding vows about at all times selecting Rafael have now cemented themselves into one of many cutest moments within the present’s historical past. 

Pour your coronary heart out, woman!

Rogelio: So, then why have you ever been appearing bizarre?
Xo: You stated you’d respect my privateness.
Rogelio: No, Alba stated she would. I’ve no respect on your privateness. I must know.

And you would be heartless to not smile at Mateo marrying Jane and Rafael in the lounge whereas asking Raf if he “desires to marry his mommy.”

For these of you who guessed that Krishna was enjoying for Workforce Petra, you have been proper! 

This entire time, Krishna and Petra have been in cahoots to idiot Milos into handing over his lodge shares. 

I really feel like a weight has been lifted now that Krisha does not have it out for Petra, however can she be absolutely trusted?

I am barely involved that ultimately, she will not give Petra her shares again. 

If she held onto her 2/three shares, she’d have extra stake within the Marbella than Petra and thus, would grow to be Petra’s boss. 

Would not that appear like the right revenge? Even higher than no matter wage Petra is paying her. 

Krishna additionally stated one thing that might have foreshadowed a attainable relationship with Petra.

“I feel I am in love” is a daring assertion to make about your boss.

Jorge: So, what is the rush?
Mateo: So Michael does not come again and take mommy away once more.
Narrator: Jeez child, strategy to kill the temper.

Can I say how relieved I’m to search out out that Xiomara’s most cancers hasn’t returned?

Xo was being reasonably secretive and dodging calls from her oncologist, which made everybody suppose she was mendacity about her most cancers. 

When pressured, Xiomara revealed she was contemplating a profession in nursing.

Contemplating Alba was a nurse and Xo’s been in search of a calling, it is a candy strategy to carry all the pieces full-circle. 

Rogelio could be the silliest character on the present, however regardless of carrying an animatronic tail, he managed to spew some knowledge that we might all tuck away in our pockets for a wet day: “goals do not come simple.”

Xiomara was set on beating Alba in Loteria in order that she might make her personal choice and never pursue nursing, however in actuality, she was solely operating away as a result of she was scared. 

My Next Move - Jane the Virgin Season 5 Episode 13

Within the phrases of Hilary Duff on A Cinderella Story: “do not let the worry of hanging out preserve you from enjoying the sport.”

Okay, advantageous, Babe Ruth stated it, however I at all times recollect it stated by Duff.

Anyhow, Xiomara failed herself earlier than she might even strive, and that is unfair to everybody. 

For a season that has been mediocre at finest, one of many strongest points has been Petra and Jane’s relationship. 

And now, due to you, I’ve to get married wanting like Quasimoto.


Petra’s come to date since Jane the Virgin Season 1, a lot in order that she was upset about not being requested to be Jane’s “poofy, mint” dress-wearing maid-of-honor. 

And positive, she might have stated she did not imply any of it, however you recognize on some stage, Petra was damage. 

Jane’s choice to exit of her strategy to get Petra the precise gown she wished was heartfelt and spoke to how necessary the friendship has grow to be. 

It bought to some extent the place Raf and Jane truly fought over Petra when it got here to their new wedding ceremony date.

Generally, I simply miss the lavatory flooring talks these girls had on the Marbella. 

Different Marbella Musings

  • Does ayone really feel like there’s been increasingly point out of Mateo Sr.? Alba spoke to the sacrifices he made for his household, however primarily, the episode highlighted that he wasn’t above dishonest to get his means.
