10 craziest moments from the 'Jane the Virgin' season 1 finale

Season 1 | Episode 22 | “Chapter 22” | Aired May 11, 2015

We’ve come a long way, Jane the Virgin fans! As of tonight, we can truly say we have seen it all. In Jane the Virgin‘s rookie season, we’ve seen a virgin get pregnant, a handicapped woman get out of her wheelchair, a priest go on a date, a twin come back to life, a lost mother return for her son, and a president get resurrected (sure, it was a telenovela president, but it counts).

It was truly a season of miracles. Tonight’s finale wrapped up many of these story lines and set up a major plot twist for season two. Let’s dive in and relive the finale’s 10 craziest moments!

10. Rafael is playing Petra

Rafael wants to buy out Petra’s shares of the hotel, but he knows she won’t give them up easily. Instead of asking Petra if he can buy back his shares, he decides to seduce her. He pretends to hit on her, he lies about feeling an attraction toward her again, and he even asks her out to dinner at the spot where they had their first date (Petra swoons). Sadly, Petra believes she has a chance with Rafael—until she overhears him telling his sister that it’s all a lie. Petra may have gotten played, but she will have her revenge.

9. Nadine returns with information about Sin Rostro

Nadine, Michael’s former partner who disappeared after she confessed to working for Sin Rostro, shows up in Michael’s apartment. He pats her down and handcuffs her, knowing he can’t trust her. Nadine swears that she can help Michael find Sin Rostro if he tracks down the doctor who works for Sin. Michael follows her lead, but the doctor is dead. Thinking she has the drop on Michael, Nadine steals his keys and breaks out of his apartment. Michael smartly places a tracker on Nadine, which will come in handy for when they need to track her down in season two. #FindSinRostro

8. Sin Rostro had facial reconstruction

Before Nadine escapes, she tells Michael that the doctor he is looking for may have changed Sin Rostro’s face. Everything Michael has on Sin Rostro is now moot because she may no longer look like the woman he once knew. If Sin has changed her face, that could mean a different actress is playing her next season. Hopefully Bridget Regan will return to play Sin Rostro in season two.

7. Xo and Rogelio almost miss the delivery

Xo goes to Vegas to open Rogelio’s show, but in doing so, she almost misses Jane’s delivery! I loved the scene in the beginning of the episode where Alma is coaching Xo through her delivery of Jane: Five minutes of pain for a lifetime of happiness.” Xo wants nothing more than to be able to support Jane through her delivery, but she can’t get a flight out of Vegas until the morning. Rogelio is equally disappointed that he can’t be there. Fortunately, they catch the first flight out of Vegas back to Miami, but not before they party with some crazy Rogelio fans. #RogelioFans4Ever

Rogelio and Xo Wedding

6. Xo and Rogelio get married!

Speaking of partying with crazy fans, Xo and Rogelio pull a classic “Ross and Rachel” from Friends and get married in a Vegas wedding chapel! They are so drunk, they don’t even realize they are married until they find the wedding tape the next day. As they soon discover it, they realize they got married in front of Rogelio’s Venezuelan fan club by a trans man in a Cher wig. Crazier things have happened in Vegas, but what does that mean for season two? Will they stay married? #WhatHappensInVegasDoesn’tStayInVegas

5. Michael doesn’t want to be Jane’s safe choice

After weeks of flirting and rekindling their affection for one another, Michael and Jane finally confront their feelings. It doesn’t go well. Michael clearly still loves Jane, but he’s caught off guard when Jane calls him “familiar” and “safe.” Michael doesn’t want Jane to love him because he is safe or comfortable. He doesn’t want to be the rebound guy from Rafael’s dangerous fantasy. In a surprising move, Michael leaves Jane again. #RIPTeamMichael

4. Rafael admits he still loves Jane

Rafael comes clean and tells Jane everything. (I’ll admit, my feel meter rose pretty high in this scene!) “I do love you, and you and the baby mean the most to me. I want this.” Finally! But is it too late? Does this confession move Jane’s heart? Nope, not this time. This is why you don’t break a pregnant girl’s heart! Jane refuses to take Rafael back because he is too unpredictable. Jane already suffered through all the stages of grief, and now he wants her back? Sorry, but no again. #RIPTeamRafael

3. It’s a boy!

Everyone makes it in time for the delivery. Jane and Rafael are ready to meet their new baby girl, Nina. That is, until Nina turns out to be a boy! The Villanuevas have never had a boy before. I love how Xo says she doesn’t know anything about boys, LOL. Nina becomes Mateo, and he is given the names of three of Jane’s closest family members: Rogelio Solano Villanueva.#MateoIsAdorable

2. Petra takes Rafael’s last sperm sample

At this point, the finale is almost over, and for a second I think we are clear from anything crazier happening tonight. Boy, was I wrong. Not only did Jane just have Rafael’s baby, but now Petra can have Rafael’s baby too! Petra is contacted by the sperm bank and told there is one sample left of Rafael’s sperm. I’m guessing that since Petra wanted to be inseminated with Raf’s sperm in the beginning of the season, nothing will stop her from getting inseminated now. #Petra’sRevenge

1. Baby Mateo is abducted by Sin Rostro

This is by far the worst thing that happened tonight. Worse than someone dying, worse than Petra’s baby games, and absolutely worse than Xo and Ro’s drunken wedding. Sin Rostro abducting Baby Mateo is the absolute WORST! I do not even want to see the look on Jane’s face when she realizes Mateo is gone. I can see the memes and tweets and viral campaigns on Twitter already: #SAVEMATEO!

What is Jane going to do when she realizes he is missing? Will Michael’s tracker on Nadine help them find Mateo? And why does Sin want the baby at all? Can she not have children of her own? I was not expecting this, and it hurt so much to watch that precious little baby get walked out of that hospital and put into Sin’s arms. Thank God for Michael and his tracker! Hopefully it only takes one episode next season to find Sin and Mateo; otherwise, Jane fans will be dying for weeks, until Mateo is found!
