Just as Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is getting ready to say goodbye to Jason (Brett Dier) and officially accept the fact that Michael is gone, Michael gets his memories back.
Jane spends the entirety of this week’s episode of Jane The Virgin doing two things: trying to get her divorce papers from Jason, and trying to solve the budding feud between Mateo (Elias Janssen) and the twins.
The feud between the kids causes Petra (Yael Grobglas) and Jane to start a fight themselves, which is frustrating after the two have worked so hard throughout the seasons to become good friends. As it turns out, Petra was feeling left out because Jane hasn’t talked to her about what is going on with Jason. The two talk it out and realize they’re each other’s best friends.
“Here’s how I feel,” Jane said. “I didn’t grow up with a sister, but I feel like I have one now.”
Meanwhile, Jason is trying to get Jane to go on a date with him to see if their spark is truly dead. After a horrendous fishing date, Jane and Jason both realized they’re completely different and Jason plans to return to Montana.
Before Jason goes back to Montana, he stops by Jane’s house to give her a fishing rod as a parting gift and thank her for her help, and the two share a sentimental goodbye.
“I just want you to know that you’re a good person, and you deserve a good life,” Jane said.
“I must’ve been for someone like you to love me,” Jason said.
Jane thanks him for the rod but gives it back because she knows she’d never use it. Just as Jason is getting ready to leave, he accidentally scrapes the ceiling of the porch with the rod, causing dust to fall on him — which reminds him of the snow that fell on Jane and Michael when they shared their first kiss.
With that little bit of dust, every memory of Michael and Jane came flooding back, and his heart began to glow.
Fans knew Michael’s memory would come back at some point, but the question remains: What does this mean for Jane and Rafael (Justin Baldoni)?
