I admit that sometimes, you just have to binge watch a show you used to watch on air and several weeks ago, I was searching for something to help me get out of my own head and I stopped on Drop Dead Diva. Have you ever watched it? It is about an aspiring model who dies in a car crash, but when she gets to Heaven, she hits the return button, and she ends up coming back to life in Jane’s body. Deb isn’t happy about going from tall, thin, and blonde to a short, size sixteen brunette, but the biggest adjustment is losing her fiancé, Grayson, who happens to work with Jane at the Harrison and Parker law firm.
Grayson is a catch. Handsome and driven, he is caring, protective, and smart. He does have a bit of a temper sometimes, but overall, he is the kind of guy who comes around once in a lifetime. After losing Deb, Grayson is lost, and dates several women who are nothing like Deb, and it kills Jane to watch. As you watch through six seasons, the only constant in Grayson’s life is Jane (and Deb’s best friend, Stacy.) Jane is Grayson’s friend and confidant, and when he figures out he is in love with Jane in season five it was a moment to sigh over. Especially because he still didn’t know she was Deb (despite Stacy opening her big fat mouth and back tracking at the end of season four/beginning of season five.)
What makes Grayson so swoon-worthy? I’ve already names off all his qualities, right?
But wait, there’s more!
- Grayson looks beyond people’s outsides and sees the good in them. Like Kim, who is still often an unpleasant wench, but has her moments of genuine caring and concern. And when Grayson finds out that Jane is Deb in season six, he asks her why she didn’t tell him, and her response is that she didn’t think he could love her as Jane, and he basically says, those are your hang ups, not mine.
- Grayson will go the extra mile for a cause he believes in, even if that means ending up in jail, and he will protect the people he loves at any cost.
- The Grayson look…Grayson will look at Jane sometimes and it is like a sucker punch to the gut. It’s soft, thoughtful with just a hint of that beautiful smile and my heart melts like butter.
Wanna catch up on all six seasons and swoon over Grayson yourself? Just log into your Netflix account, but be prepared for surprises in every season! I just wish we had gotten season seven…
