Drop Dead Diva Review: Life's Too Short

at .  Updated at . Comments

Two weeks in a row of endings like that? My heart can't take it!

Drop Dead Diva Season 6 Episode 9 pulled an even bigger punch than Grayson's shooting the week before.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead...

Drop Dead Diva Season 6 Episode 8 ended with Grayson getting shot by the father of a murder victim.

Unfortunately, Grayson was tasked with defending the murderer and even though he wanted off the case, Grayson was still forced to testify about a police violation that let the killer go.

This week the doctor explained that although Grayson survived surgery, there was a small piece of the bullet that was too close to an artery to risk removing. We spent the episode thinking that Jane and Grayson might get their happy ending after all.

Grayson even revealed to Stacy that he was planning on proposing before everything happened! With life being so short, he didn't want to wait and Stacy picked up the ring for him.

Grayson: Stacy can you keep a secret?
Stacy: You know I can. I never told you that Jane was actually Deb.

By the way, Stac good job on keeping that whole identity thing a secret! Jane found the ring in a drawer and gave a nurse her phone to snap a photo of them when she thought the proposal would happen.

Just then I was thinking, oh man something's going to go wrong. What if the memory loss happens suddenly that the doctor warned about? What if Grayson gets cold feet? What if a new case comes up and Jane has to leave? Never for one second did I think: what if Grayson DIED?

Alas that small piece of bullet nicked his artery, he coded and the doctors called it. Grayson is officially dead. 

Although a large part of me wanted to throw my remote at the television, I have faith that there is a reason the writers did this. The whole show has been about rebirth and reincarnation, so there has to be an epic plan. The Drop Dead Diva writers have already addressed the matter on twitter

Plus, according to previews, we got to borrow Fred from Mad Men for an episode! So excited to see the OG Guardian Angel back my TV screen. Don't worry Paul, I still love you.

C'mon give me a shot. Just think of me as your new sassy assistant.


There were other things that went on this week, namely Kim's crazy parents and Stacy and Owen's engagement. However, I think right now we're all focused on one thing:

Will Grayson find a way to come back?
