Jane By Design: The Second Chance

Jane's mother, Kate, is back and full of wild stories but no real answers of why she left and hasn't been in touch. Jane is excited for her to be there, seeing it as a chance to finally get to know the mother she only dreamed about. Ben, on the other hand, sees Kate's arrival as nothing but trouble and ultimately only disappointment for Jane when Kate disappears again.

Meanwhile, Billy starts to wonder about Zoe when things start to seem off about her.

During their conversation, they find out that their mom had been in Italy for a while but then she said that she will talk about it later. Next, Billy picks up Zoe from her house (the fake one) as she still hasn’t told him that she lives in a mansion. ..
