Did You Know?


When Kim is trying to convince Lisbon to help the FBI on their case, she says that Jane stopped the ten-year reign of a mass murderer. Red John was a serial killer, which by definition is a criminal behavior distinctly different from mass murder. See more »

Federal agents coming through! (spoiler alert)
8 December 2013 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

It is almost like when you miss someone so much and that person comes back after all those years and you thrilled with this unbelievable joy and happiness inside. we were afraid we would never see him again but here he is... he is there... he is going to have his couch back! his Lisbon! his tea and his freedom back! was it so hard for them to arrange!? after all what he did for them, catching corrupted cops, killing the evil serial killer! they couldn't be a little grateful!? Well that is how world works!? it is about having leverage and not about trust and honesty! And the new lady agent, she seem's a little off yet, she still doesn't know who she is supposed to be!? she is struggling between Jane's clear grace, her ego and of course being the best officer she wants to be! She asks Lisbon's personal relationship with Jane and she is obviously trying to be involved with him, but she doesn't know how!!? she is a fan and tries to hide how much she loves working and being with Jane, but unfortunately Jane knows that and makes them suffer for their lack of honesty. but we still don't know whether Lisbon is the one or not!? it is not supposed to because the writers don't want to make it a love story and destroy boundaries, however they don't know something, this wall is already collapsed! and there is nothing to protect, we all know they both love each other and it is not just a friendship, the thing that brought back Jane to US again after two years of freedom next to the ocean wasn't just the job offer or loneliness, he wanted to be with Lisbon once again, and I would say:"Lisbon was the only reason he came back for"
