I wanted to point out a behavior I noticed from Jane. Jane is known to be suave and quick-thinking. The majority of the time, Jane is ready with an answer on the tip if his tongue and says his retorts without so much as a breath in between. I noticed that when Jane is under stress or pressure, mostly when he lies to/about Lisbon, he hesitates, which also suggests he is lying or covering up the truth. Lying comes so naturally to Jane, that there shouldn’t be any hesitation. Yet, when Lisbon is involved, it is there as obvious as ever.
Cases in point:
- In the season 4 finale, after Jane tells Lisbon he loves her before ‘shooting’ her and when they are alone in the warehouse later, Lisbon asks Jane what he meant by that. Jane cocks his head slightly and hesitates before answering her, in which he lies and says he was just hyped up and doesn’t remember saying that to her. A lie after hesitation.
- In the season 5 premiere, Lorelei Martins tells Jane in interrogation that she thinks he’s a little bit in love with her. Jane is quiet a moment, hesitates, and then stumbles over some words before he answers that he stays at the CBI to pass the time. A lie, after hesitation.
- In ‘His Red Right Hand’, after Bosco dies, Lisbon asks Jane what Bosco told him before he died. Jane, after a moment of hesitation, states that Bosco told him to watch over her. As much as I’d like to believe that is all he said, the hesitation makes me wonder if Jane was hiding something else from her.
- In the season 2 finale, Lisbon asks Jane if he is sure Red John didn’t say anything to him, to which he hesitates and then tells her, ‘I’m sure.’ We know he lied to Lisbon. Red John recited the poem and also said ‘Roll Tide’. A lie after hesitation.
I’m sure there are many more points where Jane lied after hesitating. Hesitation is not Jane’s forte. He NEVER needs to hesitate because he’s a quick thinker, yet when it comes to Lisbon, he just can’t seem to get himself together in time. Jane never stumbles over words, hesitates to lie or outright deflects the truth otherwise to anyone else he considers a friend. Usually only with Lisbon.
Just my opinion when I watched Jane in a few scenes like this. He was so uncomfortable and not Jane-like at all.
