I'm not sure that the F.B.I. would be as in the dark as Jane assumes regarding Bertram's list, but it was still satisfying to see Jane pull the wool over Abbott's eyes. It looks like Lisbon is going to be enjoying herself more with Jane since she will not have to answer directly for his actions. In the past Jane's superiors in CBI used threats against Lisbon to attempt to control Jane (Hightower for one) and I wonder if they (the show) will go there again.
In season 2, Bosco had Jane arrested and Jane willingly went to county jail, with the viewpoint that his mental outlook was the key to his freedom, not the physical setting. While tonight's episode did not specifically reference that point of view, Jane sticking to his guns in light of earlier experiences was not too surprising.
Really interested in seeing where Lisbon and Jane go with Lisbon's professional relationship to Jane being altered.
Todd, I was concerned as well that Van Pelt or Rigsby would be sacrificed to Red John and was relieved that they were permitted to exit under much happier circumstances.
