Jane/Deb & Grayson
In the second season Deb learns that Jane only married Ethan so he could get insurance for cancer treatments, only for him to leave a month after they were married. Deb channels Jane's reactions upon learning she wants the divorce because he was a jerk for leaving her. This turn of events have Deb starting to act more like Jane as she starts to take on Jane's emotions and feelings. Meanwhile, Parker, with secret help from Grayson, also saved Jane's job after Tony, who was upset upon learning that she was married, refused to represent her after initially agreeing to do it. Deb/Jane would later learn from Fred that Kim did sleep with Grayson, resulting in Kim's pregnancy scare, devastating Deb for a moment until Fred told her the results came back negative.
She also resumed her relationship with Tony after their brief break-up. When things finally seem to be going great in their relationship, Tony informs her that he has received a new job in Washington D.C. He then asks Jane to move with him but she sadly informs him that her life belongs with the firm and Stacey. After Tony moved away, Jane seemed to resume her romantic feelings for Grayson again. When she heard that Grayson broke up with Vanessa in the season finale, and then he asked her to dinner consecutively she thought he may finally be reciprocating those feelings. She then made up her mind to tell him the truth about her being Deb. Fred warned her not to go to the dinner as something bad would happen but she ignored him as her mind was set. At dinner, Grayson told Jane that he did not want to lose a second opportunity to have a great woman in his life and that he was going to propose to Vanessa that night. He also asked Jane to be his best man. This upset her tremendously and she stomped out of the restaurant angrily passing Vanessa on the way. Grayson completely baffled by her behaviour ran out of the restaurant and called out to her in the street but then he got hit by a van. Jane screamed as he flew in the air, Vanessa came out and witnessed the horrific scene while Fred looked on gravely. Jane then screamed at Fred, ran to Grayson now lying in a pool of blood and he smiled at her and said "Deb" before closing his eyes.

During the second season, Parker and Kim start to work more closely and begin a relationship, which is tested when Parker's former partner, Claire Harrison, returns to the firm. Claire butts heads with Kim, which causes Claire to fire Kim and Kim to think that Parker is sleeping with Claire. Parker later fires Claire and attempts to hire Kim back but to no avail.

Stacy attempts to create "The Armvelope," a sleeve-like accessory that can be used during driving until she receives a cease & desist letter from a Japanese company that already produces such a product.
