  • Went too far

  • Shouldn't Jane be in jail for life? That was the most silly episode yet. he endangers hundreds of people every time he touched those vials. Thats not really worth catching a killer. This show is going downhill fast.

  • An overall excellent episode of The Mentalist.

  • Worst plot ever...still a good story within this plot, but you can only take it so far. A little research and all would have been so much better.

  • Quotes (13)

    • Dr. Seberg: Good morning, Mr. Jane. My name is Dr. Alicia Seberg. I gather from a brief search on the internet that you're the best detective in my immediate vicinity.
      Jane: Oh, well, um, you flatter me, but, uh, I'm not actually a detective.
      Dr. Seberg: I need your professional assistance. Please come immediately. I've been murdered.

    • (About Scott Price)

      Jane: You know he didn't kill Alicia Seberg, you just like scaring people, right?

      Harken: Hey, if there was a murder here, I think he's a very good suspect.

      Jane: Why? He has no interest in her death, it could only lead to discovery of the security breakdown.

      Harken: We'll see if he had any other motives.

    • (Harken is inteviewing suspects)

      Jane: This is ridiculous.

      Lisbon: Just let it go.

      Harken: Let's have some quiet back there, huh? Now, Mr. Tipp, please--

      Jane: (interrupting) Why?

      Harken: Why?

      Jane: What difference does our silence make? Silent or not, you're still wasting everybody's time with this nonsense.

      Harken: You guys called this homicide, so now we have to run the paperwork. That's how it works.

      Jane: Still a waste of time.

      Harken: I thought I made the deal clear to you guys. You really wanna mess with the C.D.C.A.?

      Lisbon: Absolutely not. I apologize for my colleague's rudeness--

      Jane: No she doesn't. I retract that apology. Show some mettle, Lisbon. You know as well as I do, if I have ten minutes with these people, I will get the truth. If there's any useful truth worth having.

    • Rigsby: Anything to be looking out for in particular?

      Lisbon: Oh, uh, one of them released a lethal supervirus that could kill half the state of California, so I guess we're looking for someone with a prior background as an evil supervillain.

      Cho: Okay.

      Lisbon: That last part was a joke.

      Cho: Yeah, we get it.

    • Lisbon: Tell me the truth. This is a trick, right?

      Jane: No. Why would I do something like that? What would be the point?

      Lisbon: Swear on your child's grave.

      Jane: You know I don't do that. Not for anything.

    Trivia (2)

    • As Agent Cho is ending his interview with Griffin Wells, he states "You'll be the richest man in Folsom." Folsom is a prison run by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in California State. It is located in the city of Folsom, 20 miles (32 km) northeast of the state capital of Sacramento.

    • When Dr. Seberg finds the opened Cryptohansa B vial she stops Dr. Welks and Harken from opening the door, because she knows the virus must be contained within the chamber. Seberg responds to Jane's question that the killer would have taken the antidote in advance of opening the vial, the only way it will work. Although having taken the antidote protected them, it is never explained how the killer managed to leave the contaminated chamber without releasing the virus.
