April Blair gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop on what’s ahead for Jane & Billy!
Jane (Erica Dasher) has been keeping secrets all season long on Jane By Design, but it sounds like she’ll be the one getting surprised on the March 6 spring finale. “There are some revelations that are pretty intense,” creator April Blair tells HollywoodLife.com. “But it’s still a really fun episode.” Not only will we see Ben (David Clayton Rogers) confront Jane about her double life, but April tells me there’s also a huge moment between Jane and Billy (Nick Roux)!
“They’re the people you think are meant to be together,” April says, likening Jane and Billy to Gossip Girl‘s Chuck and Blair. “You want them to be together. In my mind, they’re meant for each other. But what’s the process that’s going to get them there? [Jane and Billy dating] is the end goal, but I want to enjoy the process, rather than the instant gratification.”
So will Billy finally confess his feelings for Jane during the finale? I’d be surprised, especially considering April’s emphasis on Billy and Jane building their relationship gradually.
April does confirm, however, that Billy’s confession is not about Nick (Matthew Atkinson) kissing Lulu (Meagan Tandy), though that secret does eventually find its way to Jane.
Fans can also expect sparks — of a very different nature — to fly between Jane and her office rival India (India de Beaufort). April reveals that “there are things that blow up between them, and their new friendship gets tested.”
And all that drama builds up to a major cliff-hanger ending which, I’m told, will leave fans desperate to find out what happens next.
“If we hadn’t gotten [an additional eight episodes this summer], it would have been really disturbing to people,” April says. “We tried to make it impossible not to come back.”
What do YOU hope to see happen in the finale, Jane By Design fans? Should Billy confess his love to Jane? Should her big secret finally be exposed to her co-workers? See you in the comments section!
