Now that's the Mentalist that I know! Jane the manipulative bastard has returned. It has been a long time since Jane crusades himself investigating a murder and explains the tricks--which are very clever ones! Not simply face expressions and trivial stuffs. They're stuffs that the audience can investigate on its own, which make them even funner and enjoyable to watch! I cannot spoil it them for you, too bad. And Jane's final trick--the most twisted one--it has been long time since Jane pulls that masterpiece.
Nice break from Red John MythArc, all in all. Solid 10.
Oh, and the ending is really sweet.
