You’re right. I have forgotten how to act like a normal human being. And I play games. I lie. And I trick people to avoid the truth of how I feel. And the idea of letting anyone close to me is terrifying for obvious reasons. But the truth, Teresa, is that I can’t imagine waking up knowing that I won’t see you. The truth is… I love you. You can’t imagine how good that feels to say out loud. But it’s scares me and it is the truth. It is the truth of what I feel.

Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts.
Risking it, though it’s hard.

Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfection

Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you

- “All Of Me” - John Legend

Lisbon or Kim?

I hear a lot of people saying that Jane seems into Kim or that they see them getting together as a couple. I just don’t understand their rationale. They are basing this on a date on an isolated island where he was desperate for companionship and the fact that she makes a good cup of tea?

Jane is a complex man. But he has told us in his own words from his own mouth what he is looking for in a woman. And Lisbon fits every one of those traits so perfectly that I have often thought that she was the person he had in mind, not Angela, when he said them. For more than a decade she has been his confidante and his anchor, his staunchest defender and the willing receptacle into which he has poured the darkest part of his soul. Why would he throw all this away for a woman he just met under circumstances of deceit and one who has never been open with him?

I never expected everything to be light and breezy once Red John was no longer a focus or a threat. Teresa and Patrick are having to work out the parameters of the new relationship. But it’s coming along.

She has never deceived him or hurt him or let him down in any way. And insofar as actions speak louder than words, he has never made a secret of how very much he cares for her.
