    Since the show began I wondered how Jane came to work for the CBI. This episode was it. But it's not a good way to do that. It began with a 7 years ago flashed on the screen. Then we see Jane enter the CBI and asks to see their files on Red John. Lisbon asks him to return but he refuses, so Lisbon asks one of her people to escort him out but Jane riled him up t6o get him to slug him which allowed him to stay. He would join Lisbon. to investigate a murder and in the end Lisbon would as Jane to use his ability to find out who the killer is and he does and she asks him to work with her. It would have been better if it began with Jane and Lisbon talking about how it's been 7 years since they first met then we go back 7 years. Or a case they are working on now has ties to the one that brought them together. And I wonder about Van Pelt when the show began it seems like she's just starting out with them. But at the end of the episode we see they consider hiring her so that would make it two years before the show began,moreless

    Jeeves was off his knockers

    It said clever title goes there so you can't blame me! But now for my opinions. This episode was great, amazingly amusing and just a great insight on the early Patrick. The cameo for the couch in the evidence room was plain genius and had me smiling immediately. There were some dull moments and I didn't like the fact that Lisbon asked for help rather than Jane offering it, towards the end. It seems like something Jane would do. I loved it but I did think this episode would have been great in one of the earlier seasons even though I can't think of anything better to do for the 100th episode except for maybe an episode about Jane coning people whilst being married or his episode in the mental institution, I think they could have done some great things with both of them. Nevertheless I loved the episode, it was a great idea and was something I think every Mentalist fan needed to see and if you haven't and you've gotten this far, do yourself a favor and watch it!moreless

    100th episode.

    By DexterMorgan2, Feb 28, 2013

    This was the perfect episode for long time Mentalist fans like myself that remember watching the first episode So it was good to go back in time to them moments However this episode was before the first episode where Jane first comes to the CBI looking for answers on Red John and he soon learns that the CBI aren't making any progress The episode had a nice ending with the limo scene which now makes me think that Alexa could be Red John's FBI friend and has left me wondering who the man in the limo was.moreless

    Red John's FBI helper

    By gabbyp102, Dec 09, 2012

    The woman in the end(in the limo) is the person who works with the FBI and is helping red john. She was in the episode where Jane was trying to keep Lorelei( the lady he meet in Las Vegas and slept with) but she got she away because of red John's FBI helper. She is the person Jane is trying to found in FBI as red johns helper. I know she is because I remember her being in the meeting room with the judge, trying to see who gets Lorelei.moreless

    99th episode

    By Wiseguy70005, Oct 31, 2012

    Although the 100th episode filmed, the episode, originally scheduled for November 4th, was only the 99th episode broadcast. Although a great episode, the 100th episode/first case was done before on "Bones" in 2010. The difference there was the characters were shown in the present discussing the first case shown in flashbacks.

    Red Dawn

    By masterpeace, Oct 31, 2012

    @yumararules20 his name is kevin corrigan. He's was in the show Grounded for Life & has been in a handful of Fringe episodes.

    The episode itself was great (decent enough murder mystery) but the ending really made the episode worth watching. I really am hoping that Kevin Corrigan is indeed red john and not just another red herring but knowing the mentalist it might just be another red herring. If he is indeed red john than I think they did a great job casting wise. I mean he just said "thank you" to the FBI agent but he seemed like he might have had a red john type of voice.

    But if it is indeed a red herring than red john could still probably be someone we've seen before like Bertram or LaRouche or Bret Stiles. I'm still sticking with Bertram he seems to have friends in high places which know red john does. I'm interested to see where they'll take this story.moreless

    Red Dawn

    By CarolBurright, Oct 30, 2012

    Is it Red John in the back of the lino with FBI agent Alexa or is it just another one of Red Johns, Red John decoys? All I know is the minute he spoke, it blew my mind, that's the voice, the same voice that I have heard in previous episodes as well as the episode Red Moon where he recites a portion of a William Blake poem . Tyger Tyger, burning bright, In the forest of the night; What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry. It will be interesting to see where the show goes from here, very curious.moreless
