"A crazy clown is after you? Oh, that's rich."
Sorry, the Seinfeld fan in me saw the opportunity and had to get that quote in.
This was a very good episode of The Mentalist tonight. Things fell apart a bit at the end as the wife doing it (how very NCIS) was a bit of a letdown for me. I would have liked something a bit more original or creative.
The verbal duel of chess was also a great use of Patrick Jane here. The show needs to emphasize his mind, his main weapon, more than it has been doing lately, so as to not fall in the trap of this becoming just another procedural on CBS.
Great episode tonight. 8/10
