On Sunday's episode, Jane has been locked up for three months because he and FBI boss Frank Abbott (Rockmond Dunbar) are at a standoff. Abbott won't let Jane out unless he agrees to work for the FBI, and Jane won't work for the agency unless all his requests are met — and that includes having Lisbon (Robin Tunney) as his partner again.
"If I can't live on my terms, I'm in prison anyway," Jane tells Lisbon, who visits him in detention to explain why she's not thrilled about the idea of working with him again. But hey, judging from the exclusive clip below, at least he's getting that tea he asked for!)
Check out an exclusive sneak peek from "Green Thumb" here. Do you think Jane will end up getting his way?
