Okay in 1x2, Red Hair and Silver Tape, is the first time we see Jane reach out to Lisbon and she accepts it. In the last scene after the funeral they turn and walk away, a sad (for the victim and family) Lisbon a few steps ahead. Jane catches her up, puts his left hand on her right shoulder as comfort and leaves it there until the scene fades to black. Lisbon allows it, although she doesn't otherwise react to it.

Elastica, I felt the same way about this scene. Also it's odd Jane was not warned about it.. he clearly isn't ok with male's attention on Lisbon, with Hafner and then the stripper. I mean, if he really didn't care, he wouldnt pull such a face, he would laugh and tell Cho, lets let her have some fun, with a wide smile on his face.

Bonaduz I'd never seen it either although I thought I'd seen them all as I often flicj through the shows videos or SB's videos. I love it when he's embarrassed, you can see he just wants to run away, or he tries to change the subject, cute..

I didn't see this interview yet. Thanks. Simon Baker can't sit still on his chair, almost trying to get away from the questions and he wrings his hands constantly - seems to be totally uncomfortable! Poor guy :-))
@KM
Yes, I could just see Jane sitting on top of the stairs, grinning from ear to ear! lol

KM when I first watched that episode, I really thought she was getting drunk and depressed.
She's got beautiful legs! Jane clearly must have had a good look and no so pure thoughts

@mimi "but some said he wanted to check if she was dressing and not getting back to bed and others said he was checking her out."

Jane knows Lisbon is a professional, she would never go back to bed. He looks guilty when he takes a look around before trying to take a peek. He's definitely checking her out, in my opinion! :D

total delight watching Jane, not only checking Lisbon out at the window, but looking to see if anyone's watching him before he tries to sneak a good peek through the peephole -- surely knowing you can't really see anything that way but he has to go for it. good one :)

@katempw yes! completely forgot to mention his courage/cowardice, which is definitely part of his defining traits. :)

@mimi I thought in the beginning Jane is so focused on the case, he is caught off guard when a less decent Lisbon shows up. He checks her out instinctively, but luckily for him, she was so sleepy she didn't catch it. He repeats several times he has an excellent plan in motion, almost as if he was excusing himself for intruding on her privacy. When she closes the curtain, we can see the wheels in his head, his mind no longer on the case but rather on what he just saw, and looking around to see if anyone is watching before he tries to repeat the experience. I think this shows that, at times when no one is looking, Jane likes to check out Lisbon. Considering this episode was directed by SB, I think we can guess what he really thinks about Jane/Lisbon! :D
