I agree with you: not enough Jane/Lisbon in this episode, but hey- don't I say that about almost ANY episode? Might be. I think there were some missed chances, and it wouldn't hurt to throw us a slightly romantic bone now and then...I have the feeling the writers haven't really done this since the premiere.
I liked Lisbon's brother and niece very much, and I found the whole episode rather fast-paced, so I wasn't bored at any time.
But: all in all, there was just not enough JANE in this episode for my liking, and I couldn't fail to notice that he's the main reason I'm watching the show, as much as I enjoy team interaction and his relationship with Lisbon (IF the writers decide to dwell on it). But watching Jane is always my greatest pleasure- and there wasn't nearly enough of that in this episode.
An additional word about the Jane/Lisbon controversy: I absolutely believe that he truly cares about her, and in my opinion the characters have anormous chemistry running between them, so
I did not like this episode at all. I considered turning the television off, in actuality. I don't care about Lisbon's family, and there was almost no Cho. As Cho is the only character I like, that alone is enough to make it annoying. But it was very annoying, even beyond that. Van Pelt wanting to know about Rigsby's love life struck me as rather dog-in-the-manger, and her lack of insanity this week after being fairly out of control since she shot her fiance seemed unrealistic.
On the upside, there was none of those bosses of theirs, both of whom are poisonous, nasty, or sneaky.
I do agree that the lady playing the mother of the drug addict victim was very good indeed. The local policeman who offered to help turned out to be a red herring, as he was actually honest and helpful, but on a lesser-written program, he would not have been.
I am not sure why Jane would want to "weasel" his way into Lisbon's personal life. He is her friend, but not her lover, and I don't thin
I agree. There were some good parts but overall it was subpar.
