At first it was let slip and taken back and then it was made heard and flowed with more ease, with them both enjoying saying and hearing it, loving the sound and the meaning of what had been waiting to be told for such a long time.
‘Teresa Lisbon. It’s… It’s a nice name.’ - Patrick Jane
Did Jane think she’d be his destiny when they just met? Did we think they’d end up together? Many of us hoped so.
For the one we met was a woman of character, someone strong and honest, someone who this lost and hopeless man saw as his hope as of the start, someone he - and we - trusted instantly. Teresa Lisbon, a person of integrity, not perfect but with a giving heart, a woman knowing what it is to suffer and lose someone, full of empathy, unselfish, and loyal. The character we gradually fell in love with and so did Jane. Someone he chose to share his life with, someone who became the love of his life, and we know why.
