Woohoo! Very uplifting and hopeful look at things! I think it could do very well on Fox actually. Love to see it there and that makes good sense since Heller already has an in at that network! Love that idea.
Yes. "Only five episodes" is a huge chunk of time this late in the season. Especially father they've just thrown away so much time at trying to force Fischer on us, putting her front and center and sidelining Lisbon. Ugh.
Beautifully stated. Although I still can't stand Fischer, it satisfies me deeply that Jane sees her the way I do and not through some silly lens of some kind of new love interest for Jane which many people voiced early on.
I was and am horribly sad for Jane. I don't believe Heller would take what he and Simon even call variously, the backbone and the the heart and soul of his show and destroy it, so I do think Jane and Lisbon will be together.
I know Jane gave the job of the shill to Fischer, along with the tacky dress, to be the honeypot lure. I feel sure it was his feeling about what she did to him on the island. But I forgot about the predator part and I've always described her as such. But I didn't snap to the animal print representing that final aspect. Great catch, any! And Jane says to her, Anything that moves. He's got her pegged. And it's the exact same peg I've had her on from the beginning!
OMG. What if Lisbon goes physical with Pike and when he takes his shirt of, he has a three-dot tattoo! Just kidding. Won't happen but so much fun to think about!
Lisbon dating Marcus Pike? Naturally, being a shipper, I don't like it. But Marcus seems to be a straightforward, nice guy so it's hard not to like him at this point. What shocked me most is Lisbon flirting first, in the art storage locker. She turned those bright green high beams on him, "Do you bring dates, here?" It clued him in she was interested and made it easy for him to follow through. I think she will find him boring fairly quickly and I hope that the point of sleeping together wakes her up that this isn't the man she wants, but Jane. I think we're going there. For Jane to just suffer through to the end and be a lonely conman without Lisbon is just unbearable. It's the stuff of artsy irrelevancy to me. I don't think that's what Heller has in mind after building their relationship for so long, and now to this pitch.
Subtext in the roles Jane gave out? I'd say so. He even knew that Abbott knew about boxing even though Abbott said he had never told him. Lisbon twice really, as his girlfriend and as the woman he most admires and reveres, dressing her first in white and then in jazz. Kim the seductress in the animal print, tacky and low and how he sees how she treated him on the island. Cho, the tough guy needed nothing at all. He is the tough guy and needs only his own closet. Jane overplaying himself a bit as the erudite squire. The whole thing was delightful.
McKay right that Lisbon is Jane's soft spot? Absolutely. No doubt about it for me.
Best outfit of the episode? Lisbon, by a mile. Both dresses were a knockout on her. The white, the color of purity, revealing so much of her entire body. And the zig-zaggy one, so stylish and revealing. Jane really went for revealing with Lisbon. He wanted to know what her body looks like. I'm sure it left him panting for more, as we saw his eagerness to get to something "fabulous" with her for the evening. Crushed. Along with my heart.
Favorite scene? I think when the killer showed up in their driveway to go to Manet's Violets. Jane and Lisbon walk arm in arm to the car, then his hand taking hers to help her into the car. She seemed so easy with his touch. And the view of both of them, Lisbon in back, Jane in front, as he talked about Manet's forbidden love that he could only express in a painting. Jane could have been talking about himself. It made me look back and realize Jane, too afraid to speak to her for fear of triggering her anger that he would be interfering (plane talk in Green Thumb), has been scattering Violets for her ever since. "I'm happy because I'm sitting on this bench with you." "You look great in that hat." Asking her to ride in the Airstream. Speaking to her about his plans and the case, not Kim. There's so much more I'm not even thinking of. Telling her she can't see his feelings. And he's right. She almost doesn't seem to see him at all right now. And now she's looking at Pike. The ending scene left my heart a burning stone. It hurt to see Jane so alone and sad.
@ani You crack me up with your scenario. But really, yeah, simple scenes of their life together from time to time would be great. I'd love to see them enjoying some down time together. Where would they go? What would they like to do?
I've since modified my opinion about the meaning of get it out their systems and go fight crimes. I think Simon might really have been trying to say that their personal relationship would not be the focus, at least not all the time. They're two working people and of course on a procedural they would be going back to their work. But I wouldn't mind a stolen kiss or a copped feel from time to time. A steamy night or a tryst here and there. Keep it hot. That's what we want for the happy couple anyway. Any happy couple, right? They don't need to be torn apart to work crimes. They just get up and go to work like everybody else, right?

It's on youtube now, in case you still can't see it.
Hahahaha, ani! That's how long I want to watch the show, too!
It did sound in the Extra interview that Simon kinda let the cat out of the bag on that one. I'm thrilled! I want to see the whole thing. I hope they do it up right. I know it's broadcast but they can go far enough even there to make it tantalizing and exciting, and perfect for Jane and Liston. What they'll actually do is anybody's guess. But since he said "get it out of their systems," it sure sounds like more than a kiss! But it also sounds like something that will start up, but then maybe stop. That's so typical of TV, to bring a couple together and then tear them apart right away. I really hope they don't do that here. When he balked at "seal the deal" it made me think his denial was perhaps referring to a marriage or something. That it would not go far. A lot to read into a little interview, but boy aren't we used to analyzing ever nuance when it comes to TM!
Now, I'm going to have to check out those song lyrics and Price Above Rubies! It felt really nice to see the three guys together and talking a little about the past. This new FBI thing makes it feel like everything before it has been wiped away like dirt sometimes.

The latest sneak peek of 6x15 shows the three of them in the bar! They have a VERY interesting conversation. It's on eonline and the article with it is "Is Jane in Love With Lisbon." Worth a look! Seems like everybody's talking about Jisbon. There's also the interview Simon did on Extra last week, it's on youtube. He's asked about Jisbon there, and his response is really interesting.
I'm not sure, but it looks like it starts at the end of 6.14, so I'm really glad they'll let us at least have a look at this reunion.
