^continued: I like the turn this has taken, after the last thing Volker told Lisbon in ep 7 was "you have no idea what's going on do you, enjoy your job while you still have it Teresa" i was convinced that he was either a) associated with red john b) the show would at least center plot around how he could be associated with red john and create suspicion. It's not over yet(next week is the last Volker episode) but it doesn't appear we're going down that path. Much of this season has been about showing the character, dark side and what really drives, makes and eats at characters(Jane, Lorelei and to an extent Rigbsy) and it's nice to see the show taking this path with Lisbon(although this should have been done 2-3 years ago). If this has no Red John connection though, I do wonder when they'll start building up that story line, if this is the last season there's not alot of time to work with which might suggest this story isn't as deep or complex as we'd imagine.
Strong episode, needed it coming out of winter break and really bad ratings for the last episode of 2012. Interesting how Jane hoped Lisbon had found love in that scene---clearly another attempt to add intrigue--alot of people will say this is Jane's way of deflecting the idea of loving Lisbon. I don't really agree but we shall see. It's clear that Volker has a huge influence over Cal gov. and judges--so if Lisbon succeeds with bringing down Volker, what are the after effects for her in terms of how people in law enforcement and judiciary system she consistently has to work with and get things from? Also, this won't happen, but if Volker is so powerful and influential with law enforcement, why not in theory come after Lisbon if she poses a true challenge(which shes not right now)? There certainly wouldn't be repercussions.
It is absurd Lisbon to criticize Jane for chasing the man who killed his wife and daughter and she wants revenge on a man who has not done any personal damage.
Lisbon I think you could really to sleep with Volker and to know his sadism. Perhaps in this way her fans would stop complaining about Jane.
Every time I want more and more to Jane
What a wow episode. I loved the con Jane played at the rehab place with Cho and Lisbon in on it. Very clever. I loved how ready Jane was to help Lisbon. They do care for each other. Volker is going to go down now. I can't wait to see them do it. Excellent.
