At the close of last season, Deb was ready to let go of her past and embrace life as Jane. But the unexpected arrival of Jane's "secret" husband Ethan at her doorstep left her with more questions than ever. To make matters worse, Jane may be disbarred after breaching client-attorney confidentiality when, against the firm's advisement, she reported her client for fraud. Faced with a new love triangle and the uncertainty of her career Jane must, once again, chart out a new future for herself.

Meanwhile, Kim and Parker represent a female writer who is suing to retain control of the fictitious male persona she created under her pen name, Jonathan Noble.
Just as Jane and Tony finally move their relationship to the next level, Tony receives some news that affects both their futures. When Teri's cousin faces deportation charges, Jane steps in to help with the case. Parker and Kim get closer outside of the law offices, while Grayson decides to sell the house he shared with Deb.
