  • Patrick tries to find a painting valued at 50 million.

    Trying to retain some of the viewership from the Ravens and Steelers epic clash The Mentalist went into turbo mode as Patrick Jane busted out unprecedented levels of psychic power in the opening scene, almost to the point where it was unbelievable, even by this show's standards. This was a good episode overall though with some good twists and turns along the way and the same fresh and witty dialogue we've grown to expect from the hit series. The ending was a bit of surprise, but it also played to the strengths of the show: Jane outsmarting everyone.

    I wish we learned a little more about Red John but I have a feeling we'll get back to that topic toward the end of the season.
