Our apologies dear "Diva" fans for our lateness in bringing you the next installment of After the Episode With Josh, but we've all been just so busy bringing you the most fabulous show around! This week, executive producer and show creator Josh Berman dug even deeper into his vast knowledge of all-things "Drop Dead Diva" and answered your ever-burning questions about Episode 3 and the show as a whole! Josh Berman! See if Josh answered your burning question below:
As we find out more about Fred and Stacy, fans want to know more about the couple! Sarafina asks if Stacy will try to dive deeper into Fred’s past. Another viewer asks if Fred and Stacy are going to get their own place. Lynley wants to know why Fred can’t tell Stacy who/what he really is?
All good questions. First, Fred's only rule is that he can't tell anyone that he's not really a human being. If he did, he would have to return to where he came. In the very first episode, he explains to Jane that she can't tell anyone. Although Jane breaks the rule and tells Stacy, she cannot tell anyone else. Fred allowed for this one exception but is keeping a close eye on her. If Fred told Stacy the truth, it would undermine the warning that he gave to Jane and he'd lose credibility as an angel.
Jose wonders why you chose to bring Kim back to the firm?
I love the actress who plays Kim. Kate Levering is fantastic. She's got a wonderful storyline this season and I don't want to give anything away... but keep watching!
The fans have had a very adverse reaction to Vanessa. Did you expect or plan for her to be this hated character?
Vanessa is a lovely character, but she's not Jane. Anyone who competes with Jane for Grayson will be disliked. She's also a bit cold (on purpose) and I think viewers are reacting to that.
Dawn isn’t so sure about Bill: “The thing that bothered me the most was when Bill finally made an appearance. He acknowledged that he had gotten Jane’s messages but didn’t give what I thought was a sufficient explanation as to why he did not return her call.” Is this foreshadowing for Bill being a not-so-great guy?
My lips are sealed. I think that ultimately viewers may disagree about whether he's good or bad.
Eva asks what it’s like working with Margaret Cho is she as funny on set and in person as she is on stage?
Yes. Margaret is amazing! She's often quiet. She's a great listener. But as soon as she starts talking, she's got me laughing. What a talent!
Hopeless romantic Alex asks if Grayson will ever remember that he called Jane “Deb” after he was hit. Haley wants to know WHY exactly he looked and Jane and said “Deb”?
Great question. Let's just say that if you liked last season's cliff hanger, just wait to see what we have in store this year!
(Debatable romantic) Tina wonders if Parker and Jane will ever make a go of it your thoughts?
There is definitely chemistry here. Keep watching. ;)
Sue asks if we’ll see more of Stacy’s modeling this season or will she try a new career path?
Stacy has major career growth this season. I don't want to give anything away other than to say that Stacy goes through some incredible changes during the second half of the season that profoundly affect her relationship with Fred and Jane.
And FB friend Emilie needed to clear something up: I often wonder what happened to Jane's soul now that Deb has taken over her body. Perhaps it's been explained and I just don't remember, but did she take Debs place in heaven?
The old Jane has moved on to a better place. We imply that she's in heaven in the very first episode.
