  • breaking good

    when Simon walks in the door of the CBI, looking like a little lost boy, and ends the episode in a suit going confidently through the box of Red John's case files; and in between cops to the cop's shifty edge and guilty conscience, and solves the case, that's breaking good. Breaking in the lead character with such a well-paced piece of work to show us the birth of the Mentalist, was very well written and the acting by all the characters was just excellent.
