[The dead] will never judge me or tease me.
Can we all appreciate Maura’s temperance here? I mean, Jane has no reason to answer her rudely. And yet Maura is all like «Yeah, yeah all right», and she lets it go. Maybe because she knows all the passive-agressiveness, it’s just a defense mechanism for Jane, and she eventually feels sorry about her behavior. As she does in this scene, where, -without having a word from Maura’s-, she feels the need to explain herself and being sorry without being sorry. It’s all in the little details. You can’t bury your feelings that deep Jane.
Jane, the only thing Maura does not understand. Fishy.
