how do we even decide what our favorite colors are, are our brains just like “i like green because yea”
Lisbon staying in a relationship with a guy who moves that fast? It screams fake guys, come on! And I can prove my point.
First of all, Pike would be stupid not to notice the tension in the end of 6x16 and judging from the curiosity he formerly expressed towards Jane and Lisbon’s relationship, I’m 100% sure he asked her about him. Then Lisbon being honest as she is, she wouldn’t be able to lie. Especially since he’s been so open with her.
However, Pike and Lisbon do have an understanding. And Pike is not the kind of guy who acts on jealousy. On the other hand, he’s the kind of guy that adjusts easily to things(like working with other units to solve a case, or his love interest pretending to be the girlfriend of someone else). So he suggests pretending to be her boyfriend in order to push Jane. Lisbon wouldn’t agree on that, but she doesn’t have many options herself. So she accepts.
This would also explain her arriving late at the crime scene(because our dutiful Lisbon would only do that on purpose and only because of Jane). Also, the examining look she gave Jane after she ended the phone call with Pike. Then, her fake confident “Goodnight, Jane” and the sadness that appeared on her face once she turned around. And also the spoilers: Lisbon is trying to find out how Jane feels about her moving to DC. Like Lisbon would ever consider doing that for a guy she just met?! Our commitment-issues-Lisbon?!
No, I don’t think so.
