* GenreSavvy: In "Strawberries and Cream", Jane makes a presumptuous remark about how the situation will turn out. This is the norm for him throughout the entire series--Jane being extraordinarily Genre Savvy at any time of day--but, since this is the third season finale, of course the con of the episode is being played with much higher stakes. Accordingly, the tension of the moment is high, and, instead of just rolling her eyes like usual, Lisbon points out how arrogant Jane is being. "Pleeeeease don't say that, nothing is foolproof... and stop being so confident! It makes me nervous." Those who saw spoilers for season four know that Lisbon had the right idea. Within five minutes of the season four premiere, Jane will be in jail for homicide and there will be no evidence of Red John's cellphone (with the call to O'Laughlin) or his gun. Acting extra confident in the season finale with the villain Red John--who has proven time and time again he's immensely more clever than Jane--was not Jane's brightest move, but Lisbon got it.
