Bonaduz, Rationalgal, Entwife - those are really interesting observation and insight on the lack of an affectionate greeting towards Jane. When Cho rebuffed his hug when he returned, I just attributed that to Cho being Cho. With Rigsby and Van Pelt, however, perhaps there's more going on?
I rewatched a lot of the series during the hiatus - Jane's always been a pretty affectionate person. He's always been quick to give a hug, the kisses on the cheek with Hightower, not to mention how he would always try to get them all something nice whenever he could.
All of your thoughts and what we know about Jane make the chilly reunion even less sensible. Perhaps they're a bit resentful of him - his presence did turn their lives all upside down, and he got away with murder. I don't know.

Her origin is actually from Batman: The Animated Series. She was created for the show by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, and was so well received that she was written into the comics.
You don't really see her - but when Lila and Diggle are arguing when they assembled the suicide squad, you hear her voice: "Do you kiddies need counseling? I'm a trained therapist!" Same voice actor, too!!
I geeked out so hard.
Before I can even talk about this episode, I must get this off my chest:
That Harley Quinn cameo SERIOUSLY made my night!!
Okay - episode. Carissa, I pretty much agree with everything you've said. I've missed Diggle and have been saddened about how he's been sidelined for most of this season. So having a Diggle-centric episode was fantastic.
I will say that I agreed with Lila - Diggle's brand of justice isn't much different from the justice that the Hood dished out in Season 1. Diggle's a very convicted character, and that does keep him from seeing other perspectives. However, it's that conviction that made him go back for Deadshot, so it's not necessarily a bad thing.
I'm just reading this now - holy crap, did you have insider information?! :-)
My theory is that the father is Captain Renard.
I'm still slightly holding on to the theory that Renard's mother is involved somehow (not as certain that she's Stefania anymore, but still considering that a possibility). The baby is Sean's, but they're trying to get her into the royal family - what better leverage could you possibly have?
(sigh) Bye bye, Mentalist.
While I understand the reluctance to let Wu know what's out there, it's definitely a douche move letting the guy check into a mental hospital. That's gonna be on his record for the rest of his life - forget Wesen, there are professional implications for his job!
Also - Drew Wu? What were his parents thinking?
Lastly - Adalind's baby is CREEPY!!!!
Is it me, or did Jane get a haircut and shape up the scruff?
You're totally right - I completely forgot about that! Good call.
