'Jane By Design' Recap: Jane & Billy Struggle To Define Their Relationship

Tue, June 5, 2012 10:00pm EST by 8 Comments

Plus, a handsome new face turns Jane’s world upside down. God, I’ve missed this show!

Two months have passed since Billy (Nick Roux) all-but-confessed his love to Jane (Erica Dasher), and when Jane By Design returned June 5, viewers basically found themselves in an alternate universe. Ben (David Clayton Rogers) was helping Jane keep her big secret, Nick (Matthew Atkinson) was in a full-on relationship with Lulu (Meagan Tandy), and India (India de Beaufort) was… well… I’ll get to her later.

The episode began with Jane and Billy’s highly anticipated reunion — he’d been locked away in a juvenile detention camp, but thankfully, his gravity defying hair didn’t suffer for it — and he and Jane finally had “the talk.” Well, sort of. Billy pretty much avoided the subject until the final moments of the episode, when he totally lied and said Jane was his best friend and he didn’t want that to change. (Geez, Billy can be such a boy sometimes!)

But Jane might not need Billy or Nick in her life, as Grey (Andie MacDowell) hired an easy-on-the-eyes replacement for India at Donovan Decker named Eli (Bryan Dechart). He’s charming, he’s creative, and he’s — wait for it — Grey’s nephew! Jane thought she was up for India’s job for the most of the episode, which made it super awkward when she publicly pulled herself out of the running, only to learn she was never in it to begin with.

OK, now let’s get to the part of the episode that put the biggest smile on my face: India’s return! In a brilliant twist of fate, she’s now working for Harrod’s, the British department store that Donovan Decker is trying to get in bed with — professionally speaking, anyway. So now the tables have completely turned, and the falsely accused “mole” is relishing her new power.

Your move, Grey.

What did you think of the summer premiere? Are you bummed Billy chickened out on his big confession, or are you excited to see where things go between Jane and Eli? And, seriously, how epic was India’s return to Donovan Decker? Drop a comment below with your full review of the episode!

I think that it would be great for Jane and Billy to tell each other that they have feelings for each other……… For season two

I’m sooo happy that Eli is now on the show! I think Jane should pick him cas she is over nick and just friends with Billy and Jeremy! I’d love the show even more if they were together! 

Oh yeah…i’m sooo glad India’s back. after the 10th episode I was afraid that I won’t be seeing my favorite character in Jane by Design, can’t wait for the next episode for more of India. I wonder what she’ll do if she finds out that Jeremy was the mole.

Billy is totally right for Jane. Eli not so much… I really hope Billy comes out fully in his confession to Jane. Last nights episode at the end she seemed bummed.I also think Jane knows that Billy didn’t mean that “It’s her” in the best friend way.
That’s all I can think of right now…
