Jane By Design Review: Billy Chooses Jane ... Sorta

at .

It's hard to believe that "The Getaway" was the second to last episode of Jane By Design this season. Relationships were ended, others started and big secrets revealed!

Jane at a Bar

How adorable was Ben? Awkward wooing isn't limited to the teenagers on this show. Ben showed how much he was willing to do to be close to Rita. He hated everything about camping, but went for her. Their kiss on the bridge may be my favorite so far, even more than any of Jane and Nick's kisses!

As predicted a few episodes ago, Lulu forced Billy to choose between her and Jane. The whole canoe scenario was a little contrived, but it served a purpose. He was honest. Why wouldn't Billy would choose his best friend who has always been there for him over Lulu who wouldn't even leave a party to support him? Hmm ... his choice was no surprise!

Poor Nick. He was stood up by Jane yet again for her job. Unfortunately, he thought she was doing much more than working and fell into Lulu's lips. Nick and Lulu actually make a lot of sense as a couple. I was sad to see him give up on Jane so easily, but at the same time, I don't blame him. Will he regret kissing Lulu?

At least Jane had a work assignment that didn't go all kinds of wrong. I have been begging for an episode where she got an assignment and things just worked out. She did not need Billy to bail her out or anyone. India brought Jane along on the trip to keep her from spending the weekend with Jeremy. Unfortunately for her, Jeremy just did not want to be with her and it had nothing to do with Jane.

It was also a nice change to see India look out for Jane. She wouldn't let her sleep with Ron's assistant and made sure she got up to enjoy some pool time. For the first time all season, I did not despise India. This new improved India was too good to last, though, as she told Jane they weren't friends after giving her a gift. Almost have to wonder, if India was buttering Jane up, so Jane wouldn't reveal the secret meeting with Gray's husband.

Jane's life is about to go through as many twists and turns as a dryer tumble cycle. Her relationship with Nick is up in the air, her brother has found out about her job, India's intentions have gone from evil to questionable, and lastly, Billy was arrested.

How will Jane keep a positive attitude through this all? Will keeping India's secret come back and bite her big time? Will her secret be revealed to Gray and Donovon Decker?

There are so many open questions to be answered inĀ  the remaining hour. What do you think will happen to Jane now? Which couples will survive, if any?

I like the new, old look.


Sex ed classes are not supposed to be fun. I suggest you make it as awkward as possible.
