Well, I certainly wasn’t expecting that. But I’d forgotten how adamant Luke was over keeping Jane and Grayson apart so she could live Jane’s life and not Deb’s, so in retrospect, it makes perfect sense that Brittany has to stay away from Jane. I’m just glad the two have a start on being friends.

I could really see how Old Jane was recognizing that new Jane is truly smart and how she’s won the respect of the people around her in a way that old Jane didn’t actually have. I just hope new Jane realizes she’s right about Owen and Grayson. Paul certainly won’t try to keep them apart the way Luke did.

Speaking of men who aren’t around; I’m extremely disappointed in Parker. I honestly thought he’d be there for Kim. OTOH, I do understand as a character choice his deciding to get back together with his original baby-momma instead. I can’t say I agree with the reasons behind the storyline decision, but perhaps that’s because Kate Levering does such a fine job that I don’t particularly like Kim – and because she’s such a good actor is why Josh Berman decided to give her the challenge of being a single mother while also being the managing partner of a law firm. (For more of Josh Berman’s take on Season 5, there’s an interview at this link: http://tvline.com/2013/06/21/drop-dead-diva-season-5-spoilers-josh-berman-jane-grayson-owen/ — if the line is broken by line-wrap, just right click and copy on the second half, then click on the first half and paste the 2nd half into the browser window) I hope Kim doesn’t decide to take Grayson up on his offer of “anything”.

I’m looking forward to next episode, which, according to the above interview, will feature Stacey having to make a major decision and perhaps coming into her own a little.

Everything old is new again. Just like a phoenix recreates itself, so do a lot of characters  on the season premiere.

OK, first I have to say I LOVE Jane’s new guardian angel. Justin Deeley is so hot, and I like the approach he’s taking with Paul. I do kinda miss his accent as Austin on 90210, but I’ll live. Sorry, Carter McIntyre, but I won’t be missing Luke at all. But of course, we all miss Fred. Here’s a link to an interview with Justin on his new role:

So, Owen didn’t die, and Old Jane’s (OJ) not in his body. Instead, she’s in a hot new Deb-like body. Can you see Paul hooking up with her? I can. That’ll be an interesting storyline. I’m so glad Lifetime decided to renew DDD after all. I hope they keep it going for a long time.

So what did  you guys think? Do you think Owen will forgive Jane, or are you like me and think she belongs with Grayson? Of course, the intro to this season said that if  you think you know where they’re going, you’re wrong, and sure, it turned out OJ isn’t in Owen’s body. But how many of you think OJ will start her revenge quest by making a play for Grayson?

I admit I expected Stacey to pick up on Jane’s “Up north” line more quickly, but then I realized that once Fred left, she forgot all about the guardian angel bit, and I don’t think she knows about that anymore. I do have to wonder if she’ll fall for Paul, though. I don’t know that I’ll be able to keep up recaps on this, but I’ll try to post my thoughts every now and again.
