REVIEW: Drop Dead Diva – Season 5 Episode 8 – 50 Shades of Grayson – Summer Finale 2013

By Yael

In the final episode of the summer, Drop Dead Diva took Jane to San Diego and Kim finally goes into labor. If you haven’t seen ’50 Shades of Grayson’, read no further and consider this your SPOILER ALERT!

Jane and Stacy attend a bachelorette party that’s cut short when the bride-to-be finds out that her groom has been arrested crossing the boarder from Mexico to San Diego. Jane arrives (covered in glitter from the hot male strippers) in San Diego to discover that her client was being charged for disorderly conduct, but those charges were dropped when it’s revealed that he’s not a US citizen and he “misrepresented himself as a citizen by standing in the citizen line at the boarder.” But wait, there’s more! It turns out that his credit card was used to order a “Happy Massage” from a hooker while in San Diego (I think, before they went into Mexico).
Lucky for Jane, a semi-local attorney who spends most of his time in the San Diego courthouse gives Jane some pointers on winning over the judge. He then invited her out to dinner before kissing her. Jane is surprised to discover that she feels absolutely nothing for this attractive man, but allows him to sit second chair on her case until he attempts to use her case to fight his immigration battle. Jane tells him to get lost and continues to fight for her  non-American-hooker-using client. 
Shock! His best man ordered the hooker. Shock! The video footage of him in the citizen line doesn’t show that he was ushered into that line. Shock! All the charges are dropped and he makes it home in time for his wedding.

Meanwhile, back in Los Angeles, Grayson and a very pregnant Kim represent an erotic novelist when her book is copied by another publisher. Obviously they win their case, but not before Kim’s water breaks in court. Also, some “malpractice insurance agent” is interviewing Kim and Owen in the office only to later reveal that he’s not a malpractice insurance guy, but that Parker intends to sell the firm and he’s appraising it. 
The most important information to come out of this episode is when Terry forces Jane to admit that she’s in love with Grayson and Stacy (after being inseminated with Owen’s quality seed) forced Jane to find Grayson and tell him the truth about her love… But of course, Jane walks in on Grayson making out with Kim’s assistant who he’s been seeing for a few episodes. 

Drop Dead Diva returns with the FINAL episodes on October 6th, and I will not tolerate any more will-she/wont-she BS with Grayson! Lifetime is saying goodbye to this series for good, and it better end happy.
