    "Jane The Virgin" Revealed The Narrator's Identity During The Series Finale And I'm Crying

    It's something straight out of a telenovela!

    🚨Obviously MASSIVE spoilers ahead for the series finale! 🚨

    After five incredible seasons, Jane the Virgin just came to an end!

    The CW

    And for fans that have stuck with the series since the beginning, we FINALLY learned who our beloved Narrator is!

    The CW

    The finale mainly focused on Jane and Rafael's wedding, which featured the reappearance of some beloved characters.

    During the rehearsal, Rogelio's mom Liliana, played by the iconic Rita Moreno, arrives and is so excited to see her great grandson Mateo.

    Mateo tells his great "glamma" that he's doing a reading at the wedding and she makes sure he's prepared.

    So, when the big day arrived, Mateo, Ellie, and Anna read a passage from a book and it's super adorable.

    The moment was also huge considering most of the final season focused on Jane and Rafael helping Mateo learn to read.

    And then Mateo reveals that Liliana thinks he'd be great at voiceover work and that is when we learn that grown-up Mateo has been the Narrator all along!

    The CW

    Creator Jennie Snyder Urman told BuzzFeed News that she always knew that Mateo was going to be the Narrator.

    It's an amazing reveal and makes the series 100% more emotional when you think about the fact that Mateo has been telling his mom's story the entire time.

    Also, now I'm just thinking about how proud Rogelio must be of Mateo, who ended up following in his footsteps and got into show business.

    And, as if Mateo being the Narrator wasn't big enough, the final moment of the show makes the reveal even better.

    The CW

    During the final scene, Rafael asks Jane how she ended her novel and she says that her life story ends up being turned into a telenovela.

    The CW

    Jennie said, "That last scene ended the way I always imagined it ending and was part of the initial pitch of the show."

    It's a perfectly meta ending and implies that we've been watching Jane's book unfold the entire time.

    The CW

    So there you have it! Mateo was the Narrator and now I just want to rewatch the entire show knowing this.
