4.07-“Blinking Red Light”
I just watched this one today, and holy sheez, there is so much more Jisbon than I remember (Although, I admit, now that we know we were TOTALLY RIGHT THE WHOLE TIME about them being in love with one another, going back and rewatching is like shooting fish in a barrel. All those "maybe Jisbon?" moments are DEFINITELY Jisbon moments, and all the really obvious ones are like HOLY SHIT how could anyone not see it?)
But in season 4, I noticed Jane REALLY takes to guiding Lisbon to becoming better at everything she does from the moment that he gets her her job back. (Hell, the first day with Lisbon back as boss, her and Jane start bantering and Van Pelt is openly giggling about it! Lisbon even drops a “You think this is funny?” at her) I think Lisbon losing her job made Jane realize "oh shit, I gotta protect this, I gotta make her so indispensable to the CBI that they never take her away again." (And spend a lot of quality time together while doing that.)
This ep is full of Jane/Lisbon silent talking/in sync bits. Even at the beginning she calls him at a crime scene and this lil gem of a convo happens:
*referring to how the victim’s hands were bound with wire*
Lisbon: “It’s knotted. Neatly, carefully.”
Jane: ”Someone took their time.”
Jane: “Yeah, you’re right.”
Lisbon: “I didn’t say anything…”
Jane: “No, but you were thinking something. You were thinking whoever did this has killed before. Many times.”
Lisbon: “Yeah, but I can’t assume that.”
Jane: “Trust your instincts, Lisbon!”
*Cho comes in and informs Lisbon it’s a serial killer*
*slight smile crosses Lisbon’s face*
Jane: “See! You called it Lisbon! YOU CALLED IT!”
*Lisbon annoyed face*
*Lisbon’s smile returns*
ooohhhooooohhhh god, where’s our dang videos??????????
Man, this is sooooo satisfying to watch after watching old, random season 4 eps! *dreamy sigh*
This is the end of the last episode, there is a small time jump and we see Jane coming back at home, climbing stairs in a joyful mood, he walks toward a door where the camera stops and we read a name (boy or girl it doesn’t matter), he stops then opens the door and sees Teresa sat on a rocking chair holding their baby.
*THE END* and I’m crying because of the full circle.
I love this idea. It’s artistic and it mirrors the opening/crucial scene of why Jane started the journey.
Also, I think, he can be jovial walking up to the door, we don’t see the kid’s name yet (out of focus), back to his happy face, he takes a breath, and then show the door with the name, and it opening. And the only smiling face he sees is Lisbon’s.
Just barely. But just barely COUNTS! *high fives*
surf lesson with Simon up for auction:
also being auctioned: dinner with Robin
Yanno, I’m not a big fan of the water, but I think I’d spend the three hours with Simon just pretending to not be able to get my wetsuit on, and just stare at him like an idiot before finally confessing that I don’t want surf lessons, I just want him to smile a lot and flex various body parts…
OH MY GAWD, it’s only $800! That seems way cheap! (I’m sure it’ll go up, though!) I would be way too embarrassed and probably practically drown! LOL.
The dinner with Robin is also with Neve Campbell and another lady who worked on The Craft at the home of the director of The Craft’s house. I dunno which - the surfing or the dinner - that I would be less nervous at. I mean, I can be pretty extroverted sometimes, but I almost worry I would clam up and look like a grinning idiot. Hur hur dur.
How we beat the heat in Australia. Ice cold can on a warm belly.
This is literally all I want in life. A puppy, a can of soda and hot weather. (Ok, I’d like a man too, but… puppy first!)
OMG, I logged on just now, (Monday at 3am, so still Sunday to me) to write an apology to someone for not getting something back to them because I slept the day away trying (fruitlessly) fix my sleep schedule, and I find this post. It could not be more true. Oh tumblr, you know me too well…
Jane asks Lisbon’s brothers for her hand since he is THAT traditional?? alsjdhanha
That would be cute. I suspect the boys are going to wonder what is up with their sister and the handsome man she totes around…Gon’ B’ Gud.
OMG I can’t wait to hear what they think of Jane! I hope they end up liking him and pulling her aside and telling her how happy they are for her. Or drop some line like “Wow, we never thought Teresa would find a guy who could get her to settle down! You MUST be special!”
Although, I’m kind of more in the camp of not wanting him to ask for permission from her bros to marry her. Yes, Jane is very old-fashioned about certain things. But he’s also really progressive about other things, and I think he’s enough of a feminist to think asking for permission is kinda lame. She isn’t property to be passed from one man to another, Lisbon is definitely her own woman.
Especially with both Jane and Lisbon’s parents out of the picture, and being in their 40’s, they kinda don’t need anyone’s advice or permission to run off into the sunset together.
But hey, I could be wrong. Maybe he will, and maybe it’ll be cute. But if he doesn’t, I think that would be why.
