It's a classic soap opera trope, but this is Jane The Virgin, so the amnesia is all the more tragic because the writing and performances so fully realize how this revelation changes relationships.

While the show is known for its signature twists, colorful narration, and imaginative use of graphics, Jane's monologue encapsulates why the show's merits run deeper than those surface quirks.

Yet as ridiculous as the show might seem, "Jane" is at its heart about very real human dilemmas regarding love and trust and family bonds.

It seems right to watch the show and be struck by the things in it, even in its most absurd telenovela turns, that feel like real life.

Bringing Michael back as an amnesiac who now goes by Jason is giving everyone a chance to re-examine what we once took for granted...Allowing space for that kind of exploration in the crucial final hours of a television series is bold. It's striking.

It's designed to make hot-take writers across the internet fawn over Gina Rodriguez's acting chops and developing directorial flair. But you know what? That fawning is well deserved.

So far, they're doing an impeccable job.

Seven minutes, twenty seconds. That's how long Gina Rodriguez commands the screen in the breathtaking, heartbreaking, longest-on-TV-in-more-than-40-years monologue in the first quarter of Chapter Eighty-Two, Jane the Virgin's fifth season opener.

[It's] going out with not one but several twists and bangs that will blow up any notion that this CW show isn't one of the wittiest, most subversive, and best things on TV.
