The Mentalist s7 ep 7

Some poor guy is killed for some whatever reason by some other dude….. Nobody (especially not the writers) cares who or why since the real point of the murder investigation is to give Lisbon and Jane an excuse to go to Chicago and sort out her relationship with two of her brothers, one of whom is a potential witness, the other of whom is in terrible debt, and both of whom could stand to see their big sis a bit more.

Bringing the Lisbon Siblons siblings closer together also brings Jane (in gentle and supportive and thus highly attractive mode) and Lisbon closer together in a sweet, shipper-pleasing episode with lots of significant, adorable firsts for their relationship and lots of SQUEE-ing from my sofa. Bonus points also for Lisbon looking great in a skirt and Jane looking fantastic holding a baby (awwwwww!) – if you wanted to watch a whodunnit, you were short-changed, but on the Jisbon front it was a bumper week.

    I was charmed by the episode, and Lisbon looked great. But I agree that the case of the week was something of an afterthought.

    Is Abbott the best TV cop boss ever? “Take all the leave time you need to sort your family out. I’m quite happy to lie to that DA so that you can keep investigating. And I might even be shipping Cho and Vega. Or Vega and Wylie.”

    Dude. Never mind best cop boss ever, Abbott may be the best ANY kind of boss ever. You forgot the implied “No problem with taking your co-worker/not-really-secret boyfriend on your trip with you, either. You kids are so cute together.”

    Oh yeah, I’d forgotten that aspect of it. “Just go and have a dirty weekend, kids. We can manage. Laters.”
