"The season is definitely heading towards a wedding with Jane and somebody."
That's right, Drop Dead Diva's former model-turned-lawyer — in another body, natch — may soon be walking down the aisle, according to creator Josh Berman, who says Jane (Brooke Elliott) will find herself in the middle of a love triangle between Grayson (Jackson Hurst) and Owen (Lex Medlin). However, the tables have turned this season, with Jane trying to move on from her former love while Grayson is coming closer to uncovering her secret: That she's his ex-girlfriend Deb. But is it too late for Grayson and Jane, especially after he shared that smooch with Stacy (April Bowlby)?
Berman dishes on what's in store for the fourth season, which he says will be the "most satisfying" for fans of the couple who cannot be. Also, with a new guardian angel coming on this season, what does this mean for Fred (Ben Feldman, who's currently recurring on Mad Men)? And, how did Kim Kardashian handle all the jokes about her past? Get the scoop:
Stacy told Grayson that Jane is Deb! Will he start investigating this possible connection?
Josh Berman: Yes, absolutely. Grayson doesn't take lightly Stacy's ominous premonition or warning that Jane is Deb. He really looks into it despite Stacy's protesting. He wants to know the truth and he thinks there might be something to it. I actually think the cliff-hanger for our season opener on June 3 is even bigger than the season-ending cliff-hanger from Season 3. For the first time in the show's history, we end an episode on Grayson and not Jane. That was very deliberate.
We now see tables turning too. As Jane tries to move on with her new life, Grayson really doesn't want her to. So, Season 4 is a real game changer for the series, yet it's also a great entry point for new viewers because we kind of reset the clocks in a lot of ways. The tables have turned, but you never get over your first love. So, even as Jane is falling more and more deeply in love with Owen, you can't erase her feelings for Grayson, which allows for some really complex and emotional storytelling in Season 4.
Is Grayson too late?
Berman: That's the great question. Is it too late for Grayson? I would say we answer that question over the course of 13 episodes.
Jane finds herself in the middle of a love triangle between Grayson and Owen. How will she deal with that?
Berman: Within the first six episodes there is a proposal made to Jane, but I can't tell you if it's Grayson or Owen. The season is definitely heading towards a wedding with Jane and somebody. Jane wants to get married, she wants to have a family. All her dreams that she had as Deb still persist as Jane. The question is: Who will she live her happily ever after with? I think she's working hard to figure that out this season.
Turning to Jane and Stacy, how will they deal with the fallout of Stacy and Grayson kissing in the finale?
Berman: They definitely come to a head in the first couple of episodes. It's really hard for Jane to forgive Stacy for such a betrayal. But of course, Stacy is a character who sometimes doesn't watch her words. She actually has a funny line that she says in the season opener where she tells Grayson, "Be careful what you say because you can't take back words once you say them." That's a very subtle reference to what she had done in last year's season finale.
