The Last Year's Model episode of DROP DEAD DIVA finds both Jane and her client shoved aside when Parker assigns Kim the age discrimination/hostile workplace sexual harassment case Jane landed. They (barely) manage to work together and get their client an excellent settlement by hauling a random woman onto the stand and asking her if it's reasonable to require female drug reps to go to the gym and wear short skirts and high heels. Grayson represents a couple who want to rescind their purchase of a house they believe is haunted. When Grayson investigates, he sees Deb twice, but it may or may not have been because of the toxic mold Vanessa finds in the walls. Parker and Kim take a step forward in their relationship after Fred more or less tells Jane about their relationship and Stacy and Fred grow closer when they both have trouble serving divorce papers on a newlywed.
The Jane-Kim relationship takes an interesting turn this week when Jane learns about Kim's relationship with Parker. Jane had so loved the idea of being a rainmaker that she all but has a tantrum while Kim seems, dare I say it, mostly reasonable and mature. Not that Jane doesn't have cause, but her courtroom antics and pouting are over the top. The good news is that Jane and Kim eventually make a good team. Yes, pulling a witness out of nowhere is ludicrous-Drop Dead Diva is many wonderful things, but legally realistic isn't one of them and I just go with it-but Jane and Kim reciting the reasonable woman requirement in unison with the same gotcha expression rocks. They'll probably always have a somewhat contentious relationship, but I think this episode, with Kim's honesty about Grayson, marks a welcome turning point.
