6x09/6x10 Jane and his socks.
If this scene didn’t make you believe they were already secretly together/were about to kiss, you’re a liar.
Jane. Lisbon. 6x10.
How am I supposed to sleep now?
That is what love is all about:
Red John was Jane’s addiction but now it is like he has a less bad addiction- Lisbon. Jane’s number one demand if he joins the FBI is to work with Lisbon. Now he could have asked for the whole team to be assembled but he doesn’t. He asks just for Lisbon. In Devil’s Cherry his subconscious says that he is bored with solving crimes. He had always planned to leave, he had only used the CBI to get Red John, in his mind. But here he decides to give up freedom to go solve crimes for the CBI. Yes, Lorelei, he’s a little bit in love with her. More like a lot in love. Jane has a new goal in life- to be with Lisbon. Now while they are not a making out couple (yet) it is definite love. A more pure, true love. He gets more out of hugging Lisbon (emotionally, mentally, physically, sexuality, spirituality) than actual date like things with another woman.
Now the question is does Jane love Lisbon romantically and does Lisbon love him back the same way? This episode went out of its way to say yes. In our society we equate kissing, touching, sex with love. But those are merely functions of people (and they don’t have to be in love). What is real love? Real love is Lisbon still wanting to be around Jane after he killed Red John and did numerous other things that go against her moral character. She loves him warts and all. Real love is leaving a country with no extradition policy (that is HUGE people) to go back to the United States where you risk your freedom and will have to be in servitude to the FBI just because you want to be with your girl. (Yes, that was a run on but it needed to be.) Jane gave his life so that he could have a chance to be with Lisbon. Now who does that for a friend? No, you have to be crazy in love to do that. Jane was so utterly happy to see Lisbon. We have never seen him so happy. Lisbon was also elated. She even bit her lip which is a sign of desire. Their hug lasted long especially for non huggers. It was whole bodies encased. Jane even appeared almost ready to cry as he grabbed on to Lisbon as if she were a fleeting dream. Only together are Lisbon and Jane whole. Apart, they are people pretending to be happy and missing each other like crazy.
