Episode Summary

EDIT

It's been two years since the Red John case was solved. Jane is a wanted man who's found peace in South America, where he's hiding out. Although he wants nothing more to do with crime solving, an unexpected job offer could change everything.

  • not such a good

    1.0
    i don't like this refreshing mentalist. The new characters are boring. The cases are not so interesting. I miss the mentalist with the original cast, their interaction
  • Abbot will soften up to Jane as did

    7.5
    I believe Abbot will eventually soften up as did Lisbon, and Jane will come to be liked by all of them at the FBI. I haven't read anywhere if this will be the last season or not.



    That woman who got away from the Red John episode, she probably will return to haunt Jane with a Red John related scenario.
  • I've Got the Blues

    6.0
    Jane is rusty. He missed that Kim was an agent? It was obvious from the start...



    As for the whole FBI + consult thing... it felt like a rip off of White Collar (another show I love) but it was somehow boring. I really hope they fix this because if the rest of the season is anything like this episode, I may not watch next year.



    The only parts I liked in his episode were: The fact that some members of the team still hang out (Lisbon, Rigsby & Van Pelt). It makes it feel more like a family. I like that Jane was in contact with Lisbon but I really don't like that she sat around pining for him. I wanted to see her in a relationship with someone because the whole point is to move on. I did however like that she stated she enjoyed her new job, which will obviously add complications into the story later.



    I liked that Jane was trying to achieve peace. He had a peaceful life, reading zen books and being near a beach, but he get the money? They should have shown him working or at least accessing an emergency fund of $$ he put aside for that very occasion.



    But yeah, I liked that the members of the team moved onto other jobs and all seemed to be enjoying themselves.



    A lot of people left great reviews on YT. Happy Cool is a channel that has amazing reviews by Americ and I swear, everything he says, I think.moreless
  • The Mentalist redux!

    7.5
    The "Red John" episode left a bitter taste in my mouth. Even "I" could have scripted a more gripping finale regarding Jane's nemesis.

    However, "My Blue Heaven" . not "Red") breathed new life into Jane's character.

    I was hoping Jane would start anew as a consultant to the Mexican police force, solving cases as his low profile "beach bum" persona . The feel of his new locale lended a "Magnum P. to his role.

    It will be interesting to see how the show's writers reunite "the gang". How convenient Cho was the FBI agent to escort Jane to his meeting with Abbott, and Rigsby and Van Pelt just happened to be visiting Lisbon at the same time.

    I mourn the loss of potential for "La Mentalista"!

  • That damned ring has got to go!

    8.5
    The writers have managed to produce a decent transitional show with this episode, having a two year break and showing how our CBI family has evolved.



    Obviously, Rigsby & Van Pelt are the most settled of the group but have all the hassle of a new baby, as well. I assume this is what will eventually cause the parting of the ways.



    I liked the low key aspect adopted here with Jane in foreign climes in a place that didn't have an extradition treaty with the States. I also liked that his Spanish wasn't perfect, humanizing him.



    Lisbon lying through her teeth to Abbot about Jane's whereabouts while having a box full of letters from him was perfect and it's this that produces my only downer with the episode.



    I have to say I felt a sense of betrayal that Jane would remove his Wedding Ring for Fischer but wouldn't for Lisbon who, after all, he had sent many letters that she so obviously treasured.



    I also hoped Cho would break the mould and give Jane a hug when they met up again but not to be.



    Overall, I believe this to be an excellent transition from the RJ backdrop to an all new procedural where Jane runs rings round Abbot and the FBI minions (Cho excepted, of course).



    Did evreyone note the reference to working with the FBI for 5 years?



    Let's hope so and if they can find a way to let Charlotte appear again and perhaps amputate Jane's ring finger, I'll be one happy camper.



    @DonovanBrown please tell us where you found that The Mentalist is to end after this series?
