The Pike/Lisbon/Jane love triangle is progressing in the most predictable way imaginable. What do you guys think of the idea of Pike actually being a red herring...i.e. a fake boyfriend?
Jane is the one who suggested that his unit help out the Art squad. Since when does Jane go out of his way to help anyone. And Lisbon was incredibly flirtatious with him in that stolen art room.
What if the whole relationship is a fake for the benefit of the prying eyes within the FBI? Everyone there thinks there is something between Jane and Lisbon. Lisbon threatening to leave for DC gives Jane a plausible excuse for going off the deep end and breaking the rules...thus leading to this grand jury indictment.
What if that was the plan all along? Ingratiate himself with the FBI - gain their trust. Then force the FBI's hand to get him indicted, thus giving him a public platform to.....do....something. Not sure what.
Grasping at straws I know...but it is a fun idea.
