Stacy walked out with a small suitcase, closed the door and left Jane trembling during an explosive DROP DEAD DIVA.
The Lifetime drama has presented situations in the past that brought about squabbles between the two best friends. Remember when Jane was reluctant to invest in The Pakery? This is gut level, emotional and potentially life changing. It’s love, marriage and childbirth.
Drop Dead Diva grew increasingly tense as Stacy left the shared home, cutting Jane to the quick. Not before making a point that gives one pause to wonder if it is as black and white as initially thought.
“I’m sorry that my dating Owen hurts you, but I need to see where this is going. I owe it to myself and the baby. Jane responded: “I almost married the guy you are my best friend don’t you see what this is doing to me? ”
Stacy pleaded: “I do, I do, And I never ever considered Owen in a romantic way, but I can’t help the way I feel. It doesn’t have to change us.” Jane put her stake in the ground with this: “Sweetie, If you take my ex-fiance’ it changes everything. I can’t accept it. I won’t accept it. “
Does she owe it to the baby?
This mess began In the previous episode after Owen tried to put up a wall between him and the baby, not wanting to be identified as the father. He had signed on for a sperm donation, and no other role. That changed after the announcement from Stacy that she was pregnant — then came The Kiss. The couple is bonding over a new life they share.
Owen’s perspective is a bit more of an argument one would expect from a judge.
“Remember one thing. You have zero hold on me. I can date whomever I want,” he told Jane. She lashed back. “And of all the women in the world, you just happen to pick my best friend. I can’t help but wonder if this has something to do with me.” Owen was incredulous. “You’re unbelievable. Do you really think I want to hurt you?” Jane responded. “The thought has crossed my mind.”
But Jane went further and her tone changed. “Come on, you were in love with me. And Stacy… we’re completely different. What do you see in her?” Owen stuck the knife in and twisted it. “For one thing, kindness.”
Did the tide turn a bit against Jane with that exchange?
No one can blame her for wondering if Owen is being manipulative. Not after he admitted that taking a partnership at the law firm was a great opportunity to needle her about her own indiscretion with Grayson. Yet it left a sour taste when Jane couldn’t wrap her head around the reason Owen might be attracted to Stacy.
You be the judge this time. Is Jane the selfish one or are Stacy and Owen heartless?
