So yet again, another “Drop Dead Diva” catchup post. My last post got a huge number of comments, so I figured I probably shouldn’t let so much time pass before another post!
Owen has yet to return at this point, and we don’t know where he is. He went to Minneapolis, we know this. We also know thanks to Stacy and Terry that his ex-girlfriend lives there. So everyone seems to think he ran off, and because he hasn’t contacted Jane, this has been accepted. However in two weeks we have his return thanks to the previews. Why is he back now? Maybe because of the trouble Jane is in?
By the end of the latest episode it all hit the fan with the new investor Parker brought in to replace Luke. Terry always loathed her because of her history with her at an old job/law firm. Eventually Terry was able to bring Kim on board when they discovered that a client of hers was laundering money. When this was brought to Parker’s attention, Parker agreed to quietly work to get rid of her ASAP. However it wasn’t fast enough, at the end of the episode the offices were raided and everyone was arrested by the FBI for money laundering! My guess is this goes beyond just one client, and is why this woman wanted to invest in the firm. She probably used them as a front for others.
The latest episode also softened Luke a bit. I guess the writers realized they had written him to be an ass, so we saw a bit of his nice side come out while supporting Stacy during an awards ceremony. Sure he was initially blackmailed into attending it by Jane, but in the end he was there for Stacy. Maybe he isn’t such a horrible angel? Why then is he so hard on Jane?
Jane and Grayson went on an out of town work trip, came very close to kissing, but were interrupted. Even worse, Grayson never tried to make the move on Jane during several opportune moments. Jane felt this meant it just wasn’t meant to be, but what she didn’t know was Luke worked his magic on Grayson before the trip even began! He told him that what he needed to be was the supportive friend, not the rebound guy. Stacy gave Grayson the push he needed at the end of the episode, but before anything happened is when the FBI arrested them all . . . GRRR!
As I started this post off, in two weeks we see the return of Owen. Where has he been? Many feel he may have been sick and sought treatment at the Mayo clinic. However whatever he tells Jane, she doesn’t seem to even want to hear or accept it. We see her brushing him off and saying something to the affect that “is no excuse” for what he did. If he was sick, would she be so hard on him? I don’t know, maybe she would. Maybe she’d be pissed that he didn’t feel he could tell her about something so important?
I like Owen, but at this point he’s screwed up over and over with Jane. Grayson has too, but at least his excuse is Luke. I don’t know who I want to see Jane with! I feel she probably should be with Grayson though, as it is a true love story transcending all. But does Grayson love Jane for who she is now, or who Deb was? Grrrrr!
