I am glad that the Mentalist is back after another break and watching it makes me realise why I was missing it The episode unfortunately didn't give us any of the names of the suspects for Red John if that's what you was hoping for but it was a decent episode that involves a murder at a national history museum and Bertram is having his own problems at poker which is effecting everyone's job but Lisbon gets Jane to help him so he couldn't of got better help off anyone else We learn Van Pelt won't be in the next few episodes which was going to happen somewhere in the season because she is pregnant.
I definitely found this episode more enjoyable than the average filler. Even though we got essentially no useful information for the plot, we got a nice case, an interesting side story, and hilarious dialogue from Cho. It's nice to see Jane with his old theatrics, and I can't say I'm particularly sad to see Van Pelt go (personally I didn't really find her an interesting character).
I liked the throwback to the old days of Patrick Jane, with various tricks and illusions that he pulled off on the unsuspecting invitees, but the case almost took the back seat today to those acts, and then to the card game with Lisbon.
I liked this episode very much, it was a decent episode of The Mentalist how we like it. A brilliant Patrick Jane, cool case with Jane cracking it, nice side-story with the Poker-thing and helping Van Pelt, the dinosaurs-game with Rigsby and Cho, and finally Rigsby's feeling are mentioned again. It would be so cool if Van Pelt and Rigsby get another chance. I like the Red JOhn episode's but Jane is sometimes more fun to watch when there is no Red John chasing around.
