Here some of my conclusions about this current situation. Some might be popular and some are painful to admit but here we go:
-First of all, I do think Lisbon is really into Pike. This is not a rebound-of-Jane kind of relationship. Her heart might be somewhere else, but it seems she really want things work out. So for me, the restaurante scene wasn’t a proof of Lisbon liking Pike any less. She is surprised and confused. She wants him with her but Does she enough to go to DC with him? Lisbon is an adult woman, she wouldn’t date someone just because. However now she must decide if her feelings for him are real enough or not
- Why Lisbon jumped into this new relationship so willing? Not because she loves Jane any less. I strongly believe she loves him but she just given up on him as a romantic interest. After all the “love you” he took back and the “what you mean to me” ending on him running away to get Red John, obviously she doesn’t know what to think anymore. If she has feelings -romantic ones- for Jane, she kept them deep down and expressed them as purely friendship because she knows it won’t take her anywhere.
-Now about Jane’s reaction to all this. I think he’s trying for once to don’t be selfish.
I do really think he hadn’t a plan when he came back to USA. He thought everything will be the same again and he was fine with that because having this platonic relationship with Lisbon was the best of both worlds in a very weird way. He had her by his side but he didn’t have to confront his feelings, fears and doubts about having a romantic relationship with her. Now he sees he was wrong, he wants to give her a chance to be happy even if it’s not by his side. However, he is not that altruistic and if he sees the slightest sign of Lisbon wanting him, I hope he does something Honestly, I know things work out and Jane and Lisbon will end up together but the fact I feel I’m in a freaking Jane Austen novel is killing me with feels hahahahaa. I mean, we are just like when we are going to reach the climax of one of this novels. The main couple realize their feelings for each other but for a damn reason they think their love is unrequited. Then someone put their pants on and make things happen. I really hope is Jane tho. I want to see him breaking his facade for a change and whatever is for a letter a la Wenthworth or just bluntly talking, it’s his turn to make the move THAT’S IT Have a good day :)
Ah.. Jane writing Lisbon a letter in 6x09 did remind me of Captain Wentworth! He was basically pouring out his heart to her, hoping that she misses him as much as he misses her. I think the only reason he didn’t tell her he was in love with her in his letters was because, unlike Wentworth, he never really thought he deserved to have a romantic relationship with the woman he loved. Hopefully that will change in the finale!
