  • The investigators respond to a call that a man is missing and blood was found on a boat, but no body was found. After finding the body they are led to a psychiatrist who has a connection to the victim and to the eventual unsuspected killer.

    My wife and I agreed that this was one of the best Mentalist episodes yet. Rigsby is the most annoying character to me, so I thought his illness was a distraction to the episode, but I suppose it was appropriate given how they found the psychiatrist out. Overall, this episode held my attention through its entirety. I did predict who the killer was from first sight, but it didn't take anything away the episode for me. The way that he was found out was very cool and I thought it was quite realistic, contrary to some other episodes where Jane's giveaways are far fetched. I guess that is why he is "The Mentalist".
