How Jane Sees Lisbon (5/?)
Something to counteract this unending hiatus …
'I Love You'
I love how he waves his finger in a little circle to the attendant when she questions what’s wrong. It’s like, “I am not the droid you are looking for.” lol

He is just so vulnerable, completely real. Plus, I love Simon’s acting in the begining when he tries to pass through security, the look on his face, it’s the very first time we see it…<3
A balm for all their angst and pain and miscommunication …
I love that she says, “Say it again.” Already she’s confident enough, desires him enough, loves what he said enough to ask for what she wants from him. And he gives her more than she asks. And we can tell from her smile after the kiss that it was just the right thing. Perfect.

Probably my three most pressing questions, too, Anon. So many threads, even cables and ropes of plot have been left hanging, probably never to be picked up. I believe Jane was truthful when he told Lisbon Bosco told him to take care of her. But I think he said more than that. It’s possible we may learn more about it in season seven. I have no idea about “He is mar—” unless he meant to put a ‘c’ for MacAllister and, dying, he screwed up. For RJ knowing the list, I have not explanation whatsoever unless RJ’s system of eavesdropping picked up enough information to pair with his knowledge of Jane’s thinking patterns and figured it out. Pretty far-fetched and we certainly haven’t been told that. That’s all I can really say. I don’t think the last two I talked about will ever be picked up again. It’s such a holey plot that to try to explain some things only makes bigger holes somewhere else. Lots of ideas and theories abound, as you know.
Thanks for wondering, here. Maybe others will share their ideas, too.
Owain confirmed on twitter that “He is ma—” was “He is many”
If “He is Many” was truly the message, then here’s a thought, just because it’s fun to speculate - we don’t actually know it was Renfrew who it. It’s possible it was RJ himself and he got interrupted. Yes, it’s not his usual MO but he knew Jane was using Renfrew to ID him so it wouldn’t have been that weird for him to leave a cryptic message to throw Jane off.
Also - Renfrew was a selfish prick that was probably more focused on not dying than IDing his killer.
Ok, I was gonna bring this up in it’s own post because it hit me like a ton of bricks one night, but this talk about “He is many” reminded me of it and I thought I’d add it here:
In Red Moon (which Simon Baker directed, and I could totally tell by the pacing and cinematography, because I love the way he does it… but I digress) when Todd Johnson dies, he whispers to Jane “Tiger, Tiger” and at the time we all got all excited and up in arms because that must mean he was with Red John.
Because in the season 2 finale Red John says “Tiger, Tiger” to Jane. So at that point, all we knew was “Tiger, Tiger” = Red John. BUT! It’s the call sign from one Blake member to another, which we had no idea about at the time.
When Todd Johnson was arrested, he said he needed to say something, but only to Jane. Well, to prevent him squealing, one of the Blake members probably set him on fire. (We now know that was Grace’s lovely fiancee O’Laughlin, who was Red John’s man on the inside, but probably also a Blake member.) But as he lay in the hospital, near death, he still had time to speak to Jane and tell him the “Tiger, Tiger” thing.
Here’s what I realized. We didn’t know at the time about the Blake Association, or it’s connection to “Tiger, Tiger”, so we assumed he meant something about Red John. But maybe, Todd Johnson never even knew or met Red John (or knew he met). Because he just knew about the Blake Association, and was hoping Jane was one too. (or he was going to tell Jane about it.)
It was a total misdirection. We thought it was a Red John thing, but the writers may have been siting back laughing because it was a Blake Association thing, and he had no info to share about Red John anyway. But we wouldn’t know that for 3 years!!!
When I think about the “He is Mar” being, He is Many, it makes me definitely think of the Blake Association, because DAMN if that isn’t a great way to hide your killing. It’s like laundering money. You’re almost laundering your murders through a secret society. A society who has cops that can cover your trail, other people who kill, so being a serial killer isn’t as detectable because no one really knows who else is in it.
The more I think, the more sense it makes. DAMN.
While this does have merit, I think it’s not entirely logical: Todd Johnson told Jane during the scene in the motel room preceding his arrest that there were things going on beyond Jane’s comprehension and he alluded to a bigger picture. Considering that not even the writers knew about Blake at the time and I’m pretty sure that they only very late in the game came up with Tyger,Tyger as the ID line for members, it’s not likely that he meant to speak about the Blake Assoc. Furthermore, Johnson was not simply killing cops as some kind of hired hand for the Blake Assoc. He was a serial killer in his own right who somehow cooperated with RJ.
He was too much of a psychopath to just be some kind of hitman for a bunch of corrupted cops. He enjoyed what he did, which becomes clear in the first part of Red Moon when Jane talks about the three different methods the killer had used when one and the same could’ve been used on all three victims. Furthermore, Jane has very good gut instincts - which makes him appear to be psychic at times - and in Red Moon he insisted to take the case despite Lisbon’s protests and said that the murders spoke to him. I’m pretty sure that his gut told him that this was RJ related though that was just his subconscious mind and thus not something he truly knew. But the episode elluded to it heavily. That wouldn’t make sense if Johnson was just some ordinary, lowly member of the Blake Assoc. who did the dirty work of others.
I’m pretty sure that the whole Blake poem thing was meant to be used in a different way back then or that the writers/creators simply didn’t have a real plan with it or had never thought things through when it came to that. To me the whole Blake Assoc. was their not very elegant last minute way out of that dilemma and we’re giving them too much credit when we try to see the whole Johnson matter in light of it. Remember that they had Bertram quote a different Blake poem after Hightower had been made the scapegoat. Why? I think, they were leaving clues which they had a hard time putting together in the end and that was due to bad writing. Sorry to say that but it’s the truth of the matter.
And remember to which length RJ went to find and execute Hightower. Why would he do that if killing Johnson in his cell was only a simple matter of trying to get rid of the traces or a potential weak link in the Blake Assoc.? I don’t buy that. Johnson wasn’t just an ordinary member of the Blake Assoc. He had real information about RJ - that’s why he had to die. And also remember that Johnson’s killer O’Laughlin had no tattoo or VP would’ve surely remembered it - simply because they came up with that absurd storyline so very late in the game.
That RJ had minions in LE and also high up was clear before - it was unneccessary to turn it into a matter of a whole secret organization which existed independently from RJ in many ways. To me it doesn’t fit RJ’s MO. That there’s corruption inside LE - no question. But why would a serial killer who loves to see the individual pain of his female victims be interested in leading an assoc. of corrupted cops? He’d like to use the members to make sure, he wouldn’t be caught in case he left behind evidence. But then again, he’s such an arrogant prick that he thought, he was too clever to be caught anyway IMHO. The one time he had made a mistake, he used one of his really brain-washed female minions, Rebecca, to get rid of it. And how do people like Lorelei fit into things? It’s like they want us to believe that there was a circle of loyal special minions AND all the Blake people at RJ’s beck and call - all organized by a sheriff in Napa… sorry, but no. And what about the Visualize connection? This whole “plot” is way too jumbled to make real sense. That’s how I see it.
I’d also like to point out that I’m sure, there was supposed to be a meaning behind the way Johnson was killed. He was burned alive and I can’t help but see the parallels to the poem: Tyger, Tyger burning bright…. They simply followed other plans with William Blake and RJ’s affinity to his works back then and unfortunately they gave that up or couldn’t find a good way of concluding it. We never got any explanation why RJ had that affinity to Blake and why RJ would choose to share the first lines of the poem with Jane either.
Sorry this turned into an essay but every time I start thinking about the whole RJ plot, I get carried away and really frustrated. I know, others mgith see it differently but I think, they truly screwed that up. Just me…Anonymous said:: I think “he is ma…” could mean “he is marked”. Just a guess! The writers may answer the question like that though they probably didn’t know the answer when they wrote the script..Entwife: Now that’s a new idea, Anon, thanks. Especially in light of the fact that the Blake association have their tattoo. Interesting.
Regarding “He is Marked”…why wouldn’t a dying man just write the damned last name? That whole thing sounds like the writing bible had starting going in one direction and then Heller abandoned it and took it in another as circumstances and need for drama dictated.
Although I do like the “He Is Marked” idea. Don’t get me wrong. I just don’t think that’s what it is, based on what has come to light in interviews of Heller.
that one episode where Lisbon’s team went to the place where Lorelei’s sister had wrote “MAR” or “He is MAR” on the floor, can’t remember which one of those two it was, but my friend had a theory about it and she said that maybe MAR stands for McAllisteR and Red John, as we all know now, was Thomas McAllister.
Sorry to burst that bubble, but Lorelei’s sister wrote “Roy” on the floor and that was referring to RJ’s alias Roy Tagliaferro which he also used when he was with Rosalind Harker.
oh right, I must’ve recalled the episode incorrectly then, because I remember when she was like what if MAR stands for McAllisteR.
…..it was confirmed he was writing HE IS MANY. I know it’s dumb, but it was still confirmed so the discussion about it seems moot…
yeah I know, just thought I’d put that theory out there, probably would’ve been best for me not to because that’s obviously not correct what my friend thought back then.
Don’t worry about it, lol. Discussing is fun, but this post got way too long about something already confirmed. And sadly we’re never gonna get answers…
I won’t n__n Yeah you’re right, I just wish we had some answers about this whole RJ thing.
I think we still discuss it because no one believes Owain’s answer lol!
I confess: I don’t believe Owain’s answer. It doesn’t make sense. Seems more like a “cover my ass” answer. :)
That indent thing really works on posts! Thank you so much for the tip because I’ve used it twice already!
