Lisbon's relationship with Hightower is much more adversarial than with Minelli. Hightower makes Lisbon responsible for Jane's behavior, threatening to sanction Lisbon for Jane's missteps. The threat that Hightower made becomes reality for Lisbon in the episode " Blood Money " when Hightower suspends Lisbon for five days for not controlling Jane and his behavior, despite Jane's effort to stop this.
Patrick Jane[ edit ] Lisbon tolerates Jane's misbehavior, although she is often antagonized by his actions and has to apologize for him to both her CBI superiors and others with whom Jane is allowed to interact in his capacity as a consultant to the CBI. She sometimes places high stakes on her career by supporting Jane. The two often engage in light flirting and teasing of one another, with Lisbon sometimes being visibly affected by Jane's charm. She and Jane have shared several personal and deep moments throughout the series, however, which can be interpreted either as romantic interest, or just in the context of being best friends.
She is shown giving Jane multiple chances and is often seen, even when she is unhappy with his behavior, to be supportive of him and help him.
Jane certainly respects Lisbon more than others, often making sure she is not held responsible for his antics. Bruno Heller, creator of The Mentalist, has stated: Some people see that as a very sort of intense but cryptic romantic relationship.
It's exploring how two people who are adults, who've only been responsible for themselves and haven't really shared their life with anybody in a long time, feel [as they] explore that intimacy. How are the new shows doing?
Both Jane and Lisbon are private, self-contained, protective people. It's that kind of filial affection that has turned into something more, which in turn makes the romance that much harder for both characters to negotiate.
You can see they're made for each other not in a fiery, kind of crazy way, but just in a human, gentle, correct way. Bumps in the road for Jane and Lisbon: Things get awkward around the office as Lisbon and Jane initially try to keep their relationship hidden from their colleagues.
But that's only the start of their troubles, according to Baker and Tunney.
