After Patrick solves a fatal dorm drama without even concentrating, distracted by the prospect of Lisbon moving to DC, the team is commandeered 'no excuses' for a high-profile case. An anonymous letter, claiming to be from a cocky killer, gives a clue about the old, unsolved society murder in the Florida keys of Don De Jorio's first wife, mother of now adolescent daughter Christie. While investigating and trapping suspects, Patrick enjoys sort of courting Lisbon, which is cut short by an embarrassing truth coming to her ears. The trap works, but Jane only cares to act for once out of passionate emotion, regardless of the risks. Written by KGF Vissers

Kimball Cho: [about Lisbon] It's weird how mad she got. I mean, Jane's pulled way worse stunts than this. He buried a man alive once.
Dennis Abbott: Really?
Kimball Cho: She wasn't nearly as angry as this.

The beginning of the end...
21 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

For 6 seasons, what I liked best about the series was the dynamics between Jane and Lisbon, which were always markedly non-sexual.

All other series with a male-female duo started going downhill the minute they "found each other", starting from Moonlighting, up to Castle.

Lisbon was always more like big-sister to Jane, which he loved to jerk around, as she would always get mock-mad at him, all blissfully without sexual tension, which made the series more special than its peers.

The romantic interlude prerequisite was fulfilled by Van Pelt and Rigsby, and very rarely weighed down on the script.

I always told my wife I'd turn the TV off the minute Jane and Lisbon first kiss, feeling quite confident, as the series went on, that this won't happen - even in the last chapters, where Jane's behavior could be consistently described as the little brother afraid of being left behind by his guardian sister...

I fear that the next season will revolve mostly around their relationship at the expense of any other aspect of the story line, until that is all that will be left...
