The writers and producers gave the majority of the viewers what they wanted, even though it wasn't sold very well by the characters or the actors portraying them.
You have a point--Jane was a manipulator. The only reason I bought into his ability to have sincerely romantic feelings, is because we know he had them for his wife...as well as love for his daughter. It was like he was afraid to admit that he could feel that way again after they were killed. I think after so many years of mourning, and finally avenging them, the writers had to give him a happy ending.

After seeing some of the early episodes, it's pretty obvious that Lisbon had feelings for him...I thought she did a decent job of conveying that to the audience.

It was a half ass, rush to get it done, last minute, just to satisfy the viewers relationship. Butchered, just as it was with those two that left the show a one or two years ago.
Compare this series with Castle, Fringe and even the X Files and there is no comparison. The best that was achieved was room mates.

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

Wasn't what I wanted. As I stated above a few posts, the cutsy romance was more Jr Hi than adult, and I agree it did not fit the characters' histories. The actors did the best they could with it, but Jane never seemed to be genuine; more like a school boy in puppy love.

With you on this, a lot more chemistry starting 2 or 3 seasons earlier, like on Castle. Half the fun is trying to hide it from the rest. Real problem is that not even Beckett could get that dead fish Jane to sweat.
