Spread the word. Sunday is Drop Dead Diva Day on Lifetime. The network is airing a marathon on Oct. 13 from 10 am to 4 pm for those who have missed out on any season 5 episodes to date.

Then at 9pm, a new episode “The Kiss” sees Jane (Brooke Elliott) representing a woman in a personal injury lawsuit who sustained her injury during a wife-swap exercise in couples’ therapy.

Meanwhile, a man who ‘incorporated’ himself hires Grayson and Owen when his shareholders prevent him from marrying the woman he loves.

And as Stacy and Owen question their new feelings towards one another, Paul (Justin Deeley) sets Jane up on a blind date in hopes of sparking a new romance.

The episode guest stars Ileana Douglas (Six Feet Under) and David Alpay (The Vampire Diaries).

“It’s an awesome episode,” Diva EP Josh Berman told ScreenSpy today. “I’m so proud of the fall season of Drop Dead Diva. Not only have we found the best cases yet, but our characters are growing and maturing in fun and unexpected ways.”

Diva served up an unexpected twist in its first Fall episode last week, with Stacy (April Bowlby) and Owen (Lex Medlin) sharing a kiss that set the fandom on fire. How will Jane react to the news? And will it push her towards Grayson, or onto pastures new?

“Jane and Grayson will grow closer,” previewed Berman. “And Jane and Stacy are about to hit a major road bump in their friendship.”

Is it Sunday yet?
