Someone liked it — and definitely wants to put a ring on it. As if Jane’s life wasn’t complicated enough!

Jane’s (Erica Dasher) fairy tale life almost came crashing down around her — once again — on the July 10 episode of Jane By Design when her mom (Teri Hatcher) decided to whip up an online dating profile for Gray (Andie MacDowell), following the news that Beau has found himself a much younger fiancée. And, of course, India (India de Beaufort) was somehow able to manipulate Kate’s kind gesture in yet another attempt to oust Gray from the company.

Sneaky little India set up a fake date for Gray, as well as a surprise meeting with one of Donovan Decker’s biggest competitors. The plan was simple: Gray would show up for her date, bump into the competitor, India would snap a picture, and everyone would think Gray was jumping ship. But there was one thing India didn’t factor into her scheme: Gray getting cold feet! (Better luck next time, ya beautiful weasel.)

I also have to tip my hat to Jane — not something I’m used to doing, I know — for selflessly helping Billy (Nick Roux) get to his dinner with Zoe instead of heading into the city to stop Gray. Maybe there is a selfless bone somewhere in her body after all! Of course, it helped that Jane had Eli (Bryan Dechart) to back her up.

Meanwhile, Rita (Smith Cho) and Amanda’s war over Ben (David Clayton Rogers) reached dangerous new levels of crazy, and neither girl is backing down. Couple that with the fact that Amanda cast Zoe and Nick (Matt Atkinson) as Cinderella and Prince Charming in the school play — they’re totally going to hook up, mark my words — and it’s safe to say Amanda is ruining everybody’s life. That chick has got to go!

But the biggest shocker came, as always, at the very end when Kate’s ex-boyfriend Dakota stopped by for a surprise visit — and proposed!

Oh, mama…

So, what did you think of this week’s developments? Do you also foresee a Zoe/Nick hookup on (and off) stage? Will you miss Jane’s mom when she takes off — again? And are you proud of Jane for FINALLY doing something for Billy? Drop a comment with your review of the episode!
