Yeah, Ani, I'm with you on that! Jane is at heart a decent person. He just has his own way of expressing that because of his unorthodox upbringing. I hope the writers will give us more of that upbringing because it is central to understanding Jane's behavior.
Ani raises an interesting question about how well Jane lives as a fugitive. I would love to have the writers give us an episode where Jane reveals how he does this. He seems to be good at planning ahead. Perhaps he has always kept a passport on hand with a false ID in a quickly available safe deposit box in case one of his unorthodox plans requires him to make a fast getaway. Does he have an offshore bank account where he keeps his blackjack/poker winnings? Does he have a property management company on automatic online payment schedule to handle the maintenance, insurance & taxes on his Malibu house? Does he have someone authorized to take care of his Citroen and put it in storage? He may keep up a whole other identity through which he manages these things. Maybe this will come out in bits and pieces, just as we found out he had got a mail order ordination just in case he ever needed to perform a marriage ceremony.
OK, here's one behavioral change we've already seen: Jane writing letters to Lisbon, opening up to her with his thoughts, and about how she would enjoy seeing those dolphins. There's the beginning of an openness we've never seen before. And no more vests. I always saw that vest as a symbol of closing himself off from any emotional attachments - kind of like a suit of armor. And he's open to hugging people - Lisbon, his friend at the hotel, even trying to hug Cho. Now THAT was different! I think we can expect more of this expansive behavior.
