Chapter Ninety-Seven is the 16th episode of Season 5 of Jane the Virgin.

Synopsis

VILLAINS — When Jane's (Gina Rodriguez) editor pitches her a dark twist for her book, Jane begins to wonder if the same thing might have actually happened to her. Rogelio (Jaime Camil) helps River (guest star Brooke Shields) bond with her daughter, but River once again makes things difficult for him. To avoid thinking about her career change, Xo (Andrea Navedo) instead focuses on trying to smooth things over between Jane and Alba (Ivonne Coll). Meanwhile, Alba stands up to someone from her past, which helps Jane realize she should do the same for herself.
