In this season of “Drop Dead Diva,” we’ve seen a stronger push in Jane’s story arc that’s forcing her to accept her new life and leave Deb behind. Yet, no matter how much Fred (played by Ben Feldman) urges her to accept Jane’s life, there are elements that keep plunging her back into Deb’s.
“She really is fighting between the past and accepting the present and moving forward to a future that she hadn’t imagined,” Brooke Elliott, who plays Jane, tells Zap2it. “And most of time when Jane’s in scenes with Grayson, she just can’t let go of it because it’s what she really wants.”
It isn’t just what Jane wants. Elliott tells us that’s what she wants, as well.
“I want her to end up with Grayson, so I’m really wanting that to happen,” she says. “But there are a lot of steps in between that both of them have to go through before that can happen, but I see them together.”
She continues, “But with Grayson knowing that he has fallen in love with her as Jane not as Jane with Deb inside of her. He’s got to fall in love with her for who she is now, is what I want.”
In the two-hour season finale, Jane decides it’s time to tell Grayson (Jackson Hurst) the truth about who she is. Paula Abdul guest stars, not as a judge, but as Jane’s wedding planner. And Elliott hints that we may lose someone by the end of the episode, but she isn’t telling.
“I can’t give away anything,” she tells us of the finale. “But, the very end of the finale I really love, I think it’s really fun.”
The Season 2 finale airs Sunday, August 29 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
