Drop Dead Diva Review: The Last Hurrah

at . Comments

There's nothing this TV critic loves more than when characters from one of my favorite show show up on another. So you can only imagine how excited I was to see one of the greatest mamas from One Tree Hill guest starring on this week's Drop Dead Diva!

The former Karen Roe (Moira Kelly) played an erotic romance novelist whose story was ripped off by a big publishing house in "50 Shades of Grayson."

Wedding Day Blues

As weird as it was to see Kelly in a role that had her talking about orgies and sex diaries, it was a really fun case and I enjoyed Kim's reaction to everything. She was so immersed in her client's world that it surprised Grayson, which gave me a chuckle. 

Best of all was that Kim insisted on finishing her case even after her water broke and she went into labor. I can't think of many people who would be committed enough to a case to gave their closing argument via Skype from the delivery room. Kim at the hospital post labor was really the crux of the whole episode. It's when Stacy finally got artificially inseminated via Owen's contribution, Kim and Owen found out that Parker was selling the firm, Grayson and Nicole had a serious relationship talk and Jane almost confessed her feelings to Grayson.

Wait, hold the phone.... Haven't we been told for five seasons now that if Jane tells Grayson she loves him that something will go horribly wrong? Where was her guardian angel? I just don't like that there's no consistency to this storyline. I would love to see Jane and Grayson explore things FINALLY, but what's the deal? Is it allowed to happen according to the universe? 

As Teri bluntly told Jane:

This is about Grayson, it's always been about Grayson, it's always gonna be about Grayson. | permalink

Also, I just want to say that if Jane didn't feel a spark with that lawyer from San Diego, it was because he was pushy and he had a shady agenda. No random lawyer is just hanging around the courthouse and offering their services and help on a sudden whim. I could sniff something out from the second we met him. Moreover, my recent foray into the world of friends getting married has taught me that NO ONE would have their bachelor and bachelorette parties two nights before the wedding. Too much can go wrong!

All in all, a pretty good season finale. I'm excited for Drop Dead Diva to return in October and not have to wait until next summer! What did you all think of the finale? Hit the comments!
