The sibling relationship seems loving but strained, with Lisbon acting as almost a surrogate mother figure. Her name was taken from the character of Therese Lisbon in Virgin Suicides. Lisbon also had a close and platonic relationship with the late Samuel Bosco, who was eventually revealed to have unrequited feelings of love for her.
In season 2, the millionaire Walter Mashburn persistently makes passes at Lisbon, though he is rebuffed. Later, in season 3, Mashburn reappears, and at the end of the episode it is revealed that Lisbon liked Mashburn. Mashburn, who then leaves for Europe, has not reappeared as of season 5. In the season 6 finale of The Mentalist "Blue Bird"Jane openly admits his love towards Lisbon and at the end of the episode, they finally kiss.
Lisbon is well-liked by the rest of her team: Her old boss Virgil Minelli also had an amiable relationship with her, and appeared to tolerate her occasional inability to rein in Jane's unorthodox behavior. 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. Other people see it purely as brother and sister.
And I think we leave it to time and the audience to play that out and the chemistry of the actors.
