Episode "Copper Bullet" ends with the team enjoying themselves at a concert of some band. Everybody's dancing — Jane with Lisbon, Abbot with his wife Lena, Wylie with his crush Vega — except for Cho who decides to get one more taco and doesn't seem to mind that he's not with anyone.

New team leader Kimball Cho delivers a dope slap to the back of Agent Jason Wylie's head in the series finale when Wylie requests a transfer because he doesn't think he's that good in the field.
Cho then asks Wylie to stay with the team. Do You Trust Me? Jane and Lisbon do a trust fall in the first-season episode "Carnelian, Inc". It's my job not to trust you.
