Jane the Virgin
Baller
— Chapter Ninety-Eight
Chapter Ninety-Eight is the 17th episode of Season 5 of Jane the Virgin.

Synopsis

ROADBLOCKS — Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is feeling great about all the book publishing prospects she has until an unexpected problem pops up. Petra (Yael Grobglas) and Rafael's (Justin Baldoni) working relationship has been going so well that Petra makes Rafael an unexpected offer. It seems like every time Rogelio (Jaime Camil) takes one step closer to his dream, a new roadblock appears.

Trivia

  • Rose is killed!
    • Luisa returns to Miami and saves Rafael and Jane's lives by tricking Rose.
    • Rose is killed when Luisa pushes her through an overhead window. Rose is impaled on the tail of a golden statue of Rogelio's This Is Mars character, much like Roman Zazo.
  • Jane gets a deal on her book. For $500,000!
  • To deal with her stress, Jane (and later both Rafael and Rogelio) starts using EFT.
  • Rogelio convinces Darci and Esteban to move to New York.
  • Michael returns to Miami to talk to Jane.
    • He is engaged to Charlie, who is also pregnant with their first child.
  • The Narrator insinuates that he's gay. He's also single.
  • As a selling-point for moving to New York, Rogelio, in his demonstrative trademark fashion, dramatically mentions Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
  • Darci is from New York.
  • Jane and Michael make fun of Rose's age, as in Jane's book, she is wrongly listed as 38 years old when she's actually 51. Michael reminds Jane that Rose is a plastic surgeon, which explains why she looks so young.
  • This episode marks the last appearance of Michael in Jane the Virgin.

'Secrets'

  • Darci and Esteban were plotting to get a big role on Rogelio's show for Esteban.
  • Charlie asks Jane to remove a part of her book, which she agrees to. Because of this, the Narrator won't tell the audience what it was either!
