Favorite scene? Has to be the removal of the couch, breaking of the teacup and Jane's first interaction with Agent Abbott. Could that scene be more full? :D

Jane walks in to his couch being hauled away and is given a handful of change from it, which he apparently pockets quickly :) Because in the next moment he's juggling props and subject cues. His teacup is knocked from its saucer and shatters on the floor. All is silent. No one speaks, looking at the bits of cup on the floor. Jane suffers the pain we see in his facial expressions for several moments. Then he says that was his favorite cup. Abbott is now looking at Jane, who claps Abbott on the arm just like he does to assert his suggestions with any subject, hands Abbott the saucer and walks out, leaving Abbott to stare all bumfuzzled at the saucer like how did that get there and what just happened.

Hahahaha! FBI guy ain't all that after all! And Jane already has it in on him. Game over, buddy! I TOTALLY loved every moment of this ENTIRE scene!

Closing the CBI? I think it has to be torn down, at least temporarily to root out the corruption. I had always assumed the FBI comes in to supervise that razing and then is the scaffolding to build it back up, which would coincidentally take about two years :) Now I'm not so sure. It looks pretty permanent to me.

Are Jane and Lisbon now going to work for the FBI? Is T M going to become another FBI show? Nice it could have national and international locations now. But FBI gets the most heinous crimes and it seems such a grim and rigid agency. Maybe that's just television, but I really don't want to see T M up the goo and gore factor and have to deal with the most twisted, disgusting perps in the universe. This is not healthy for Patrick Jane. Yuk. But they say they'll be back to light-hearted procedural after the dust settles, so I'll have to trust and totally look forward to that.

Agreeing totally with you, Entwife. Just one thing - I don't think that the FBI has any jurisdiction internationally. The FBI could only assist in foreign countries under the command of Interpol or the responsible agency of that country. (For example, the BKA - Bundeskriminalamt - in Germany or Scotland Yard in GB). IMHO, but I will gladly be corrected! :-)

Why Jane at church? I think it's part of his plan. He's got Lisbon's gun as his "prop." It's what RJ will expect he'll have on him (Carter) and will take from him. I'm assuming the gun he fires in the promo is his own that he either still had on him at the scene of the explosion or perhaps Lisbon retrieved for him. When he fires it, there are strips of tape hanging all off it. So I figure he has taped his own gun in the pew where he's kneeling so he can get to it easy. (And hasn't Jane developed some real shooting skills! HOT!)

We learned in the sneak peek yesterday, that RJ wants to meet with Jane, I assume RJ has chosen that church. Jane arrives early and sets up his play. He's no more got religion than he now thinks he's a real psychic, IMHO.

I'd also like to note that when Lisbon gives Jane her gun for a "prop," she does not empty the clip. There is no worries about Jane lying here. Lisbon knows things can go SNAFU in a moment and she gives him her gun fully loaded, just in case he does need to use it, consequences on her be damned. Wow. Their relationship seems so profound to me sometimes. Loved that.

SNAFU?? :-)

Stiles, Hafner, McAllister really dead? I'm with Foresti Purge. McAllister's my guy for RJ now. I think Stiles may be alive because of his stated "return" like Tomrun says, plus there's his high connections with the Ecuador ministry. Jane hiding out in South America, Ecuador maybe? Helped by Stiles? Very tantalizing. :)

Entwife

Whew! Great Round Table, everybody. If I'm ever on again, I'll have to up my game!!! :D

Remember Stiles said he will return at his last service

Maybe there was the mourning celebration for his wife and daughter .... and maybe they are buried at the cemetery nearby.

Do you believe that Bret Stiles, Ray Haffner and Sheriff McAllister are really dead?
what about that all worked together and faked their death with the bomb - why did they go their in the first place they must have known that Jane had something terrible in mind with this Action - it just didn't go as planned because Jane escorted three of them out of the room.
