I think I know what Bosco told Jane, he knew Jane and Lisbon were in love with each other because of how both of them delt with him. He knew Jane was a good man from his dealings with him. He also knew Lisbon from working with her. HE TOLD JANE TO MARRY LISBON!

Welcome French Pumpkin, we have been here a long time trying to figure this series out. Another voice is always fun and helpful.

I think that Jane has money, his malibu house still has taxes to be paid. When he was in jail for murdering T. Carter, he used his two million dollar car collection as a buy-in. In the six season he bet Lisbon a million dollars that there was a girl that had been abducted in that house. He appeared to be quite serious about the bet. Lisbon took it serious because she went in directly after he said it. Jane had money before RED JOHN killed his family, he was wealthy. Ever since that day he has had nothing to do with his old life, including the money. He told his brother and the guy who broke into Le Roache's house that he would give them running away money. He also said that he has played with house money for years. To me, this indicates that he has money. Also when he was talking to Lisbon about both of them quitting their jobs and living on a beach on an island. Not to mention the fact that Jane spent two years on an island and didn't have a job, paid rent, bought food and clothes without a problem. What did he do with the money he stole in Fugue in Red? He took half of that stolen money and never gave it back. He spends very little of his earnings and that can add up very quickly over eleven years. How did Jane rent that very expensive classic car for Lisbon for the day? You have to have more then a low paying government job to even begin to start that rental process! I think Jane is sitting on a stack of cash! Big money! He's a Brinks truck waiting for a driver! I always said, who ever landed Jane would be sitting petty for life. Lisbon doesn't care about that and that's why I think will present her with it. I can't wait, we are down almost to the wire. They are about to go into overdrive!

This is really what Jane's intelligence is all about. It speaks volumes to the notion that idealized dogma is intelligence.

@Ruritania, I just had to address your statement of Jane not having much of an education. Jane is ultra educated. This is one the the huge subtle nuances of this show. Jane is not bound by the formalized orthodoxy of an educational system that teaches people how and what to think. Jane as I see him was lucky enough not to be indoctrinated in this way. He thinks outside the box and is not held down by formalized tenets that restrict the thought process because it can't see past the absurdities of it's orthodoxy. That's why he is always the smartest one in the room. This series shows that there are more ways then one to get an education. Jane would put the formalized educated community to shame.

@Rationalgal, I think you are dead on about the ring and Lisbon saying I love you. I'm going to be watching Jane's hand to see if at some point the ring just disappears from his hand without all the fanfare. This would be a great subtle nuance of Jane's personality. Then have Lisbon notice at some point and bring it to the attention of the viewers. I think that would be fun and endearing.

@Rationalgal, I was thinking about the scene you mentioned with Jane and the child looking like Jane's happy memory. That was a good catch, I missed that! What struck me about your analogy was why he held on to the memory. The original scene show lots of emotion and joy. Beautiful colors, it occurred during a festival, which evokes feelings of fun and excitement. If also showed the love of a father for his child. At the time Jane saw that he was a child and with his abilities of heightened observation skills he discerned that this is what childhood should be for a child. So he took on the memory along with the feelings, something he could use when he needed a lift. This observation and Jane holding on to the memory shows that Jane did not have any of his own. What's also clear is that Jane's memory and the target for Jane's memory was a man. This is a clear indication of what he wasn't receiving from his father. Jane's memories of his father as shown in the episode Throwing fire show abuse. What is also interesting is that Jane told Lisbon in this episode, "I wouldn't be here with you if you hadn't loved and protected your brothers when they were kids." This is a very telling statement.

Jane has always covered up who he really is with all the bravado. That he said himself, "I play games", etc, etc, etc.......

Did you notice that in the season six finale when he was watching tv in the hotel room the tv showed a beautiful calm ocean scene?

I started to list his intelligence, I didn't because I assumed it was a given.
