Buckle Up People, Because I Have A "Jane The Virgin" Theory That Might Explain WTF Is Happening
I know, straight out of a telenovela right?
🚨🚨🚨 SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't seen the season 4 finale of Jane the Virgin, look away now! 🚨🚨🚨
So, I'm pretty sure you are COMPLETELY STUNNED by the revelation that beloved character and all-round good person Michael Cordero Junior could be alive!
And if you've been a Michael stan since day one like me, you may have spent several hours* picking apart what this all means.
Well I'm here to tell you that I think I have a pretty solid theory – IT IS ACTUALLY MICHAEL AND NOT SOMEONE IN A MASK! How, you ask? Michael didn't die, but he does have amnesia. I present you with the following evidence.
In various interviews with Jane the Virgin boss Jennie Snyder Urman, both the possibility of an evil twin AND of Michael faking his own death have been ruled out. And in this interview with Los Angeles Times, she had something interesting to say about Michael's line that was ultimately omitted from the episode:
"I had a line in the finale that Michael says ... And I'm calling him Michael, but a big question will be, did Rose do something? Who is this? But anyway, I had initially wanted it with this line at the end that starts something else, and the writers convinced me that it was dramatic enough just to see him, and leave us on that shock, and save the next piece of the puzzle for Season 5. So, I did that."
What line could he possibly say that would give too much of the plot away if he were just one of Rose's associates in a mask? The most logical conclusion is that the line could be something like "who are you?"
That would definitely add a second twist to the episode, one that would give a lot away if it had been included.
