Deep down inside, you kinda knew Jane and Billy wouldn’t get together on the mid-season premiere of “Jane By Design,” right? As much as they belong together, such an epic moment can’t be wasted in a premiere. That’s a finale moment for sure — so it wasn’t too surprising that the “it’s you” moment from the mid-season finale was glossed over in a brief conversation at the end of the first episode back.
We’re not worrying just yet, though, because it was clear from the looks on both of their faces that they’re totally in love. There’s still half a season to go. It’ll happen eventually, we’re sure.
Elsewhere in the premiere, Jane had more trouble keeping her double life a secret. It seems like it’s even harder now that her brother knows (especially since he’s a terrible liar), but you can’t have a show about a teenage girl living a double life without some awesome “get home before the grown-ups do!” montages. So very “Ferris Bueller” — a.k.a. we loved.
The best part of the episode: Gray’s adorable nephew, Eli, who’ll be sticking around Donovan Decker now that he’s got India’s old job. Could he be a new love interest for Jane? We hope so. he’s a cutie. As Jane says when complaining to Jeremy: “He’s perfect! He’s charming and talented and good-looking.”
Oh, and lastly, India mucks things up for the DD gang once again now that she’s the Harrod’s buyer they have to impress. Good thing we love to hate her.
