Jane defends the sister Deb never knew she had while Kim helps a man retain custody of a chimpanzee on the A Mother's Secret episode of DROP DEAD DIVA.
Sharon Lawrence returns as Deb's mother Bobbie who begs Jane to represent Samantha Colby (Leelee Sobieski), a lab tech accused of stealing a nail polish formula. Sam is the daughter Bobbie gave up for adoption and Bobbie, in her grief over Deb, is desperate to make a connection. It turns out Sam invented the Rainbow Polish her boss (Robin Givens) passed off as her own and Jane has to prove it-but to the head of the cosmetics company buying the formula, not to the jury. Kim and Grayson are busy with a chimpanzee custody case, which is much more moving than it sounds, while Grayson also tries to find common ground with his former co-counsel and current date, Vanessa (Jaime Ray Newman).
This episode is all about family. Jane, who most recently has been finding her place in real Jane's family, now has to watch Bobbie bond with another daughter while she stays mostly outside, at least in her own mind. New Jane often feels like she has no family, but she just needs to look around because everyone is there for her tonight. Fred and Stacy, obviously, but then Teri tells her that it's best not to have everything figured out too early while Grayson reminds her that Deb always wanted a sister.
