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.
