With Lisbon out of commission, there are plenty of combinations of another agent and Jane–Jane and Rigsby, Jane and Cho, and Jane and Van Pelt. The writers, however, take another path–Jane and Hightower. Hightower? Does anyone even like her? And doesn’t she have more important business? But the choice works out well in the end, as we learn about her devotion to her kids, impending divorce, and see her banter with Jane.
“Red Gold” features a generic case about a goldminer and Jane figures it out as usual, putting himself in more harm than he should have. Both at the beginning of the episode, inciting the crowd to stampeded the stream and almost getting shot, we see signs of the season 2 Jane, the guy who only cares about mischievous fun.
