UPDATE---August 12, 2012----In last night's episode viewers see how Jane and Owen go back to business as usual as does Grayson.
Jane Bingum had burned and buried all physical pieces of evidence that she ever dated and was engaged to a man named Owen.
As fans of Drop Dead Diva know, the action had moved once again to Jane and Grayson's slow and painful dance around each other. The pair co-chaired a situation with a grief stricken client that had Grayson expressing raw emotions about the loss of Deb.
Viewers had to ask, "Is this the moment Jane and Grayson finally choose each other?" Instead one almost needed Dramamine for the back and forth nature of the romantic action that heated up with the return of Owen.
Jane asked if it was really him as he just showed up at her office without a warning call. No, he hadn't been shacked up with an old girlfriend in Minnesota, he informs her. He was at the Mayo Clinic getting open heart surgery after he suffered a heart attack. Read: Owen gone for good?
Owen has had a heart condition, unbeknownst to Jane and when it got serious enough to get it nailed down and potentially treated, he chose to hide it from Jane and say he was off with a friend on a short holiday.
He suffered the attack when he arrived there, had emergency surgery and was put into an induced coma until he could safely be awakened and allow his own heart to take over the blood pumping function.
The condition is still delicate and Owen used the infamous phrase, "Jane, we've got to talk."
She stalked out of her office after she agreed to speak with him at length that night at her apartment. Jane then went about working with Grayson on the case of a woman who was battling her fiance's mother for his ashes.
After conferring with Stacy, Jane decided to take Owen back but lo and behold, he dumps her once again. Why? Because he "can't" commit to a marriage with potential sudden death hanging over his head.
How many times does one girl deal with getting dumped by the same man? How weak and uncommitted can that man be when he doesn't trust the woman he professes to love with his medical history?
When Grayson and Jane solved the problem for their client, he told Jane that her tenacity and never give up attitude is what makes her a great lawyer and advocate for her clients. Duh...why can't she use the same method on her reluctant former fiance?
She does and refuses to accept Owen's dumping. After pledging their mutual love for each other the ring goes back on Jane's finger, but is it the result fans really want?
What do you think of Jane's decision about Owen? The comment section is beckoning you.
