Tonight’s DROP DEAD DIVA, continues with the Owen and Stacy story. Jane’s current best friend and former fiance’ engage in the worst kind of betrayal.
Jane spots the couple giggling while out for dinner, hands touching across the table. Her anger and sadness are expressed in two words.
“You,” she says to Owen as she tries to get the words out. “You,” is all she could manage looking at Stacy as her lips tremble, holding back tears.
Finally Jane utters the word “No” with disgust.
Drop Dear Diva lovers will wonder how Stacy turned into this person, but the anger at Owen will be fierce as well. Perhaps he has to admit that he has the same weakness as Jane exhibited when she kissed Grayson prior to walking down the aisle to take Owen as her husband.
It is not as cut and dried as that situation. He is a free man and both Jane and Owen have moved on, but he knows it is a breach of the unwritten rules of romance and best-friendship.
Owen was righteous in his anger and hurt by Jane’s lapse with Grayson. and who could blame him? Jane tried to make amends for what seemed like forever and all efforts were rebuffed. Some have argued it was just mean spirited on Owen’s part. Others point to the breach of trust being unforgivable, particularly because of the timing.
Yet, Owen has a history of being devious and running hot and cold during his relationship with Jane. His disappearance after asking for her hand in marriage the first time was done without regard for her feelings. His selfish decision to keep his fiancee’ wondering if he was alive or dead was driven by his ego. He envisioned being a physical burden to Jane, but never gave her the opportunity to tell him otherwise,
Somehow Jane forgave him after time had passed. Why has Owen not done the same?
Who is the biggest villain in this latest plot twist? Is it Stacy or is it Owen?
