Exclusive Drop Dead Diva Video: Fred Reunites With a Very Unhappy Jane

Ben Feldman‘s lovable guardian angel Fred returns to Drop Dead Diva in Sunday’s Season 4 finale (Lifetime, 9/8c), and we’ve got an exclusive first look at his reunion with the original Jane!

“Fred is back to the old desk job that he had at the beginning of the series,” previews Feldman, who scored an Emmy nod in July for his recurring role as copywriter Michael Ginsberg on Mad Men. “I don’t think he’s sad or happy. He’s just moved on.”

But even when you forge ahead, the past has a way of catching up with you. In the scene below, Fred has an unexpected meeting with the real Jane in Heaven, and she’s not too happy about the mix-up that let Deb inhabit her body.

“It’s the same two people we’ve seen for the past four years, but a different dynamic completely,” says Feldman of the confrontation.

Press PLAY to check out the sneak peek and then hit the comments with your thoughts on his long-awaited return.

  • Love this show, but they are testing my patience with the Jane/Owen/Grayson love triangle!

  • Yay Fred!! Please bring him back!! I DO NOT like Luke’s character and wish Fred were back on a regular basis and with Tracey!! The things that Fred was removed for as being “too human”, Luke has done in spades and more!! I am also ready for a resolution of the Jane/Owen/Grayson triangle and hope that the finale this week gives us a clue to the resolution (hopefully with Grayson!!!)

    • Ugh! Totally! Luke is dumb – so not a character I care to even see on the tube!

  • Maybe dead Jane wants to send a message to the fake Jane through Fred or in a dream? The JOG triangle is driving me crazy as well and was hoping Owen to be dead. :(

    • Me, too! I’m hoping Owen doesn’t live until the wedding. I like him but I want Jane with Grayson. I also want Fred back with Stacey. I hope Old Jane doesn’t cause problems for Deb/Jane.

    • Yeah, Luke is pretty lame and kind of smarmy. He’s really not working on the show.

  • Excited for this week’s episode!

  • I’m obviously in the minority, as I actually LIKE Owen, and have seen too many episodes where Grayson has come off looking like a superficial twerp.

    • I must be in the minority also, because I love Jane with Owen…..I think he brings out a fun playful side to her and also shows character growth that she has evolved from Deb.

      • YES i love Deb with Owen~!

    • I like Owen and Jane too! I think that they have more chemistry than she and Greyson personally.

    • I’m with you on that! I love Grayson, but one episode he says he loves Jane and the next he is out with some floozy. Owen loves Jane for who she is and would do anything for her. I’m scared to see how the wedding plays out because I’m afraid Jane’s going to break Owen’s heart (hopefully not literally!).

    • I also agree with Owen/Deb…Grayson’s character has such a wimpy side now..maybe they could find another love interest for that sweet man already!!

    • Totally Agree!!! Grayson not so charming. Owen is adorable and makes a great couple with Jane.

  • I thought it was odd that Grayson got to see the dark side of Owen but then they pulled back on it and gave him the weak heart storyline. I guess when Jane ultimately loses him, it will need to be a long road to recovery for her, and ultimately, the long road to Grayson.

  • I love Jane with Owen! I think Grayson loves the Deb side of the character and vice versa and the Jane side loves Owen. Janes character has evolved and learned so much through the series that it would be going backwards to have Jane with Grayson. Grayson’s soul mate is Deb not Jane!

  • The young man who plays Fred got another gig with Mad Men this is why he left the show. As far as Grayson/Owen and Jane the chemistry between Brooke Elliot & Lex Meldin is much stronger than Brooke and the guy who play Grayson

  • All I have is one sentence to say , and that is ……………Jane is still Deb … !

    Comment by Charlie – September 8, 2012 09:07 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope the real Jane knocks the Deb out of her! I like Jane with Owen, Grayson is so boring..Jane’s character has evolved and I truly think she loves Owen.

    • so who does real jane come back as after she tricks fred

  • I think the old Jane comes back in Owen’s body, should make for a funny next season if she has to be in a man’s body.

  • I think Owen would be perfect for Jane,but he isn’t perfect for Deb and since Deb is the one in Jane’s body,then they shouldn’t be together. I too think Grayson,seems to be always interested in some thin attractive woman. I want him and Deb/Jane together,because I want that happy ending where we should find out that Grayson truly loved deb with all his heart,for her not for her looks. If he did love deb then yes he should love Deb/Jane, and if he doesn’t love her then that proves he never truly loved Deb for the person she was inside since the woman inside is now in Jane. It’s still Deb just with a different outer shell. Of course she has Jane’s smarts but she also has Deb’s personality in there as well. so did Grayson only love deb for her beauty,we’ll see

  • I love Jane with Owen. I think their would be no point to the show is Jane and Grayson got together. owen brings the best out of “deb” proof that even skinny girls although inside someone else’s body can love a “normal” cute guy. Grayson is a model lookin fella himself while Owen is more natural and cute. I’m looking forward to next season. And yes I miss Fred. But Luke isn’t so bad after all. :)

  • Is it just me, or do you think the real Jane is now in Owen’s body??? She hit the return button, Owen was presumably dead and then came back to life not knowing what was happening! I was hoping for Deb to come back as herself though…

    Comment by Malorie – September 26, 2012 09:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Grayson is gonna fall in love with jane/deb cause Owens probably gone and old Jane is in owen’s body, I think (cause they had that little zooming on the world scene they had when deb went into Janes body) and so the likelihood of Jane/deb falling in love with old Jane/Owen (when old jane hates new Jane).

    They need to come out with a season five soon! This show is just too good to not renew.
