Jodi Arias first arrived in the courtroom wearing a very sullen expression. She was not wearing her glasses which were previously her apparent prop which she used to try and sway the jury that she was just an average abuse vicitim and not a femme fatale. Her eyes looked a bit sunken and her complexion was pale.
She was expressionless as she sat down. But then she turned to the back of the courtroom to look at who was in the audience. She clearly recognized someone who made her smile . She even puckered up and gave the person a kiss.
First we see her pursing her lips as she strains to locate the person as she eyes those seated in back of her in the courtroom.
Then she recognizes the person and makes eye contact with them and proceeds to exhibit a genuine smile with her cheeks raised, teeth showing, and eyes squinted. This indicates she is really happy to see the person.
She knows she shouldn’t be doing what she is doing . Hence you see her pursing her lips as she tries to surpress her excitement and happiness at seeing the person. But her eyes continue to smile.
She continues to look at the person as she unpurses her lips. Says OK .
Now we see her puckering up in a kissing motion.
She then turns away and laughs to herself as she is quite self satisfied in terms of what she has done in giving an air kiss to someone in the back of the courtroom.
She continues to smile a genuine smile as she turns away from the person. You can see her raised cheeks and squinted eyes which indicates she is very happy with herself.
The question is with whom was Jodi flirting? Was it one of her male or female admirers? Was it her one loyal male friend who has supported and defended her ? Was it her female friend who has tweeted on her behalf? Was it someone new? I doubt that it was her mother or father based on her strained relationship with them in the past.
Jodi is most likely receiving support if not love letters from disturbed thinking fans out there. Perhaps the person to whom she was smiling and flirting with and to whom she gave an air kiss to was one of those disturbed suitors.
While Jodi was happy that she was able to get some personal attention in the courtroom, this may be one of the last times she gets away with it. When she is locked up in prison for life or on death row, there will be nothing to smile about and no one to share a laugh.
