I think about if the tension between Jane or Lisbon has the potential to get sexual or not, everybody has their own opinion... at this moment, both might be too occupied to think about something like that- Lisbon sacrifices her personal life for the job (and yes, I'm 100% sure that she has no ongoing contact with Mashburn), Jane is still traumatized from his loss. The kiss with Flynn was merely some kind of experiment, I'm certain there was no way he would have let that go further than it did.
At the moment, Lisbon and Jane draw comfort from each other in a strictly non-romantic way, but I definitely see a chemistry that could easily go both ways. There's no way to predict what the writer's gonna do, no need to act on anything at the moment, but the potential is a point of strong tension that is fascinating- why not play with it on occasion. This season, they are just great buddies, but that can easily change in the future - we'll see.
Who is your favorite dynamic duo? Two months ago, did a new show come out or what?
Cho/Summer is going to blow up something bad.
Watching Jane with kids/teens is always a delight. The first conversation between Jane and Liesl when Jane asks if she knows who killed her dad and she says if she knew they wouldn't be breathing and Jane says you don't want to go down that path-that was good.
The Jane-Lisbon interaction is fascinating. Clearly there is no sexual attraction going on here, strange as that is, given their maxed out good looks. Lisbon is more like a big sister looking out for her frustrating but lovable little brother. She probably played that role with her 3 "near feral" brothers after their mom died and dad became an abusive drunk. Lisbon was shown having an obviously enjoyable one night stand with Walter Mashburn quite a few episodes back, so I'd guess that is an ongoing relationship not mentioned in the episodes. No need for sex with Jane, and as for him, he is still too traumatized by his wife's death (8-9 years ago!) to move on, however close he came with Erica. I don't see a Jane-Lisbon ride into the sunset here, at least not at this point.
Jane, in my opinion, is one of the most interesting and entertaining TV detectives ever. What an adorable fiend! He (Jane/ Simon Baker) carries the weight of the series and he carries it well. But I feel that the CBI team should step their game and actually detect "something" every once in a while(they're helpless without him). Also, although I think Jane and Lisbon have great chemistry (bet they'll eventually become an item at the end of the series) I'd like to see him interact a bit more with other team members, specially van pelt.
I'm worried about Cho and Summer. Just when you think the perfect match is made, the drug dynamic gets in there. She likes him enough to stay, maybe, but they appear to be in a co-dependent as well as romantic relationship. The foreshadowing for this is unreal.
Jane can be adorable. The chemistry between Baker and Tunney is incredible, but would wish to see Jane with Cho, Rigsby and Van Pelt. It's boring to see Lisbon with his team, makes you want to change channels.
I love the Jane/Lisbon-interaction, I could watch them banter for hours and hours. I love how she is often worried about him, too. They are really close this season. I loved the episode, and I always enjoy the breaks from the RJ-storyline as much as I enjoy the big arc itself.
Jane was in top-form here, and I liked how he dealt with Liesl, too: in moments like this, we see that he is basically a good guy...and that always gives me solace.
So close from becoming my newest favourite dynamic duo. It was only two months too late.
