What if the love interest or lisbon’s boyfriend turns out to be actually Jane?
That would be the best thing ever! The writers would REALLY have played us!
Post with 6 notes
I just watched the 2009 People’s Choice award show moment when Robin and Simon accept the award for the show, and LOL, he offers her the mic first and she just goes,
"Oh, I was planning on looking at you lustfully yet disapprovingly like I do on the show!"
AHAHAHHAHA! OMG! That’s her basic Lisbon formula, I LOVE IT!
"They tell us, but then it changes, so you can’t really trust what the writer’s tell you. … Also ‘cause they’re like, ‘Okay, you take that out and you, like, type that up in the press.’ And then they’re like, ‘You know what, we changed our mind, I think we’re gonna go a different direction this episode.’" ~Amanda Righetti
I was reminded of this interview because the concept of Lisbon’s boyfriend/love interest seems so undeveloped at this point. Clearly anything can STILL happen, from a big deal that arcs over several episodes to half a second of flirting with CBI Ron’s cousin FBI Bob.
I wonder what they think of fan reaction so far. Heh.
MUAHAHAHA SEE!!! SEE!!! Don’t trust PRESS RELEASES! THANK YOU AMANDA RIGHETTI!! <3 Things are gonna be ok! Trust the show!
I love that Jane is practically getting high off of Lisbon’s talking! Like aw yeah, here it comes, she’s about to lay down some info and blow you f’ers out of the water!
Wait, according to the CBS Website, Lisbon is officially a Special Agent for the FBI and not a consultant, unlike Jane who is listed as a consultant? I know the CBI was a branch of the FBI, but Cho said he still had to go to Quantico as if his CBI background wasn’t enough. But, Lisbon doesn’t? And if Lisbon is now a Special Agent, does that mean she becomes Jane’s handler/boss again?
Naw, she doesn’t have to worry about Jane making trouble, don’t worry. She can join in on the trouble making now, which is why it’s so deliciously awesome!
I assume they gave her the title of Special Agent at least honorifically because she did spend years as the leader of the CBI and was only downgraded because of her involvement of Jane’s crimes, and with Jane’s crimes being expunged, they could give her a little leeway. But she is not higher than Cho, and Cho ain’t in charge of Jane either! So…
LET THE FUN BEGIN.
I didn’t say I never did anything bad. I just never got caught.
Anonymous asked: Hey, your optimism for Jisbon is great. I think the new bf for Lisbon is part of her setting free her feminine side. She looks softer and more feminine since season 5, after RJ built a home, she is changing toward serious commitment. But she's terrified being so dependent on Jane and losing him, while insecure about his feelings. She has to get to the point where she can let go of her fears. Jane on the other hand has to let go of his ring, open up and growing up for be the person Lisbon needs.
I just want to point out a few things that Heller said that backs up what you and me are saying:
“In order for her to fulfill herself - even if she eventually fulfills herself with Jane, which she may or may not do - she has to find other relationships, other perspectives, other people who love her, just to feel fully who she is.”
To fulfill herself means she has to satisfy herself in terms that she has to make sure this is what she wants; that even after she had options other than Jane to satisfy her as a female, she chose Jane herself. She did it because for her there was nobody else for her but Jane, and you only know how much you want something when you have something to compare it to [totally stole that from my mom, but it is true]. She has to be let go to be a woman for god sake. Especially when you get that she basically upended her life for over 12 years to help him in his quest for his happiness which came from revenge. She didn’t step back and address her own needs because she was too busy fulfilling Jane’s desires. She has to discover the way to Jane, and her having a boyfriend is her opportunity to travel down one road to get to another. She is this woman who does so much for everyone including Jane, and the poor woman is confused! She doesn’t want to overstep boundaries with Jane that he might not be ready for, and this also provides a good way for Jane to lay his heart on the line and tell her how he feels before he loses out on the best thing in his life.
And yes, he wants her happy, and he would let her be happy with this guy, but only if he was truly sure her heart was into the boyfriend. If there is even a shadow of a doubt in Jane’s mind that Lisbon isn’t exactly reciprocating the same level of feelings for the boyfriend, I have no doubt he will let her know, and call her on it.
I just think this is a necessary plot. And, yes, it is a plot device. It’s a device to make Lisbon and Jane see that the only two people who can ever be on the same level with each other emotionally is each other, and it will show them both just how much they mean to one another when one is no longer available for their own personal relationship.
"Now that Red John is gone, both Jane and Lisbon are sort of psychically free to wake up and look around and what they see when they wake up from that nightmare is each other,” he previews. “And how that relationship develops and how they sort of start working out who they are to each other is a big part of how the rest of this season unfolds.”
This falls right in with what I said above. The boyfriend is essentially the glue for Jisbon to come together. Lisbon and Jane are going to see that they don’t quite like this new environment where they are no longer the only object to each other, and they are going to realize when all is said and done that if they don’t move on things, they might not get another chance. It will wake them up to the point where they look at each other and say “I can’t love anyone like you. I tried, and I failed. It’s not the same.” because Lisbon has tested the waters, and evidently, he isn’t Jane, and she would respect her boyfriend enough to let him go.
And for Jane, too. This whole thing will make him see that she isn’t going to be waiting for him forever. Lisbon has done her waiting, and if he can’t get his shit together and finally learn that he is ready to move on, she can be gone just like that, and he will have lost out on the very thing that brought him back and that he cares about. He doesn’t give a deep crap about Kim. He didn’t come back for Kim. He didn’t run back to Kim, he ran back to Lisbon, and he is going to realize that she is the one he wants, and if he is going to get her, he has to move quickly. Baby Lisbon isn’t putting her life on hold because he isn’t ready.
Lisbon has to chose Jane with other options available to her, so she knows she had a whole other path she could have taken, but she chose the one that had Jane on it, because she has been waiting for him her whole life; the one who saved her from herself, and ultimately, she will pick him because nobody can ever add up to Jane for her. She will compare the feelings she has for both, and see that Jane wins her heart every time.
This. I also want to add the aspect of their friendship. This is also a vital part of why there needs to be some sort of “kickstart” for both of them. If you have been friends for so long -and their friendship goes beyond every other- it’s hard to understand if what you feel is friendship or if it’s coming from an even deeper feeling. And the only way to realize that is if they get confronted with the chance of losing each other (to someone else), to realize if just one of them is with someone else their relationship won’t be the same.
This is quite a huge stretch I’m taking here but I kinda compare this to Jane Austen’s “Emma”. Two lifelong friends that hadn’t realized they were in love until the threat of losing each other becomes apparent and they become aware their feelings weren’t just coming from friendship as they’d thought all the time.
I JUST… NEED THIS ON MY BLOG. BECAUSE EVERY WORD IS GOLDEN.
I’m going to read this through the break, and read this again when we get previews that look scary. Because we know they’re meant to be together, we have the facts. (reading letters with a bottle of wine, the monumental pause before opening the door to see her, the goofy grins, the demands and “haul me away to jail” if he can’t be with her…) and I am going to keep this around to keep me remembering it!
Anonymous asked: and significant others rarely last on this show. they're usually gone after a few episodes and never heard/seen again. i'm a crazy jisbon shipper, but i think this will be over in a few episodes
Yes! Also, the article only states he’d be around for 1 episode thus far. So who knows? It may be only an episode or two and BAM. She finds she loves Jane too much
It’s basically just Lisbon testing the waters and trying to prove she runs her own life, and she doesn’t need to depend on Jane. We know that’s not true, so why are people so uptight? IDGI. It’s gonna be alright. It’ll be okay, as Jane says. xD
One episode? That hardly qualifies him to be a boyfriend. I am so insane now that part of me says to hell with the spoilers, they always lie, but the other part of me says But what if THIS TIME it’s true and she really does get a boyfriend and Jane is jealous and hurt and maybe they don’t even speak for a long time and…just shoot me now, please. I have to wait for a month before I can be normal again. Couldn’t they have just this once not fed us alarming spoilers? Do they really want a fandom that’s a bunch of raving lunatics for A MONTH? :0
Oh yes, I’m sure that they want us just frothing at the mouth by the time it comes back on the air! I mean, riling us up is one thing, but damn, 1 DAY after the last ep… jeez.
I agree though, look at how many spoilers have been 100% factual (probably none) and how many are intentionally misleading? (Probably most) Therefore, logically, I agree with your part of your brain going “to hell with spoilers”. Don’t even give that other brain part, the doubting one, any credence.
Out of curiosity…reblog if you have a Bachelor’s Degree. Like if you have completed part of one/are enrolled in one now.
