Episode Summary

Jane has to help a man attempt to gain custody of his son, while still dealing with amnesia. Kim and Parker assist an author by figuring out whether she can retain control of the fictional character she created, or if Jonathan Nolan (pseudonym the character was created in) has control of it. Kim finds out that Fred is her assistant, and Grayson asks every one of the office to pause for a moment and remember Deb's birthday.

  • Not all stories have happy endings

    9.0
    It was a little sad to have Daniel give up his effort (and lawsuit) just to let his family be happy. He was probably right. He could pursue it when his son was older.



    I disapproved Jane insisting on looking for Tony. And in the end she was embarrassed and she paid the price. High price.



    I loved Fred in this episode. I wish I had an assistant like him! What he told Jane in the end about having a good view of her every day life so he could watch her was really nice.



    Even when Grayson wasn't that much in this episode, his last scene was touching. Remembering Deb with so much love and devotion just makes me think if I'd ever be loved that way.moreless
  • basically enjoyable but not as funny or clever as the show can be - weak writing on the memory loss custody battle subplot (spoilers)

    7.5
    The weakest link in this ep was the court case with the dad who regained his memory after 9 years of being in a 'fugue state'. I liked the guest stars, but the writing was very shallow. I simply couldn't buy that the parties were not seeing beyond all-or-nothing in terms of whether the dad could have a relationship with his biological child. The courts and lawyers presumably would have helped the characters find a middle ground. I found it very unsatisfying and implausible that the father would be willing to just walk away .



    The Jane-Tony thing was okay, a bit funny i guess, but I don't understand why they have taken Tony's charm away. He just seems pretty cranky these days. First he was willing to drop Jane's as a client in her disbarrment hearing and then this ep he was pretty cold (even if justifiably upset). And also Jane has been pretty lame about him - pretty bad behaviour on her part in the restaurant for example. I really had liked the chemistry between the two but it seems to be completely absent this time around .



    The plot with Kim, Parker and the columnist who got her male pseudonym hijacked was a real throw-away plot. Should have been funny but for some reason didn't make me laugh. and then the Fred being the assistant didn't do much for me either. not sure why. was all their timing just off or something? or was it just all too predictable?



    Deb's birthday and the symbolism around "moving on" made sense and everything, but I would like more funny, loopy crazy stuff happening soon to lighten things up. That's why I watch the show - usually it makes me laugh and smile. this ep was a bit of a downer, yet without the profundity that might justify that - and anyway, I'd rather just skip profundity and have good times with this show.moreless
