Nicely done, Round Table! You are a fun bunch. Hair porn indeed. (Patrick, no contest: a very good look for him.)
Favourite scene was the reunion although the letter writing and voice over was beautifully done. And I really liked Jane on the car ride in from the airport. That was quite lovely and an unusual perspective.
Jane's gonna work his way around the FBI and their stuffiness I have now doubt. They will hate him at first but in the end his winning ways will out. Looking forward to the culture clash.
Working with Lisbon was the sine qua non of Jane returning from exile. She is the most important person in the world for him. Simple as that. He missed her and loves her. It was time to get back to that. He had no time to discuss it with her but that's never stopped him before. He'll figure out how to convince Lisbon how fun this is going to be.
The letters pleasantly surprised me but on reflection they are so Jane. Old school, charming -- and really romantic.
I think Jane has it in the bag with Abbott. Something transpired between Jane and the hotel guy just before Jane got onto that bus to leave the hotel. I don't know what was said, but it looked like Jane got something he wanted and I'll bet it gives him the napkin deal. He was very sure of himself in that meeting with Abbott, Fischer and Lisbon. Still smiling at that scene. It made me happy.
Great review again Christine.
At the risk of jumping on the bandwagon, I'll say I also loved the episode. It really did exceed all expectations for me. Fantastic transition. Great work by Simon Baker and the gang. Looking forward to more TM 2.0. This really is going to be fun.
And - HA! - Lisbon on the couch with Jane's letters. I totally called it. Just sayin' ;) (Because that almost never happens.)
