  • A stunning conclusion with enough to keep us watching.

    In this episode we ttruly do follow Jane down into the darkness both physically and metaphorically.

    He is caught between finding Red John and his own life at the hands of a RJ "friend". We learn a couple of things in this episode, that Jane when he really has to, will confront his demons and be able to move past them. That RJ is an older person, that there are connections going back years, that RJ has not killed everyone he knew & came across.

    What really got me hooked though was Jane. There have been alot of criticisms about how Jane handled the shot gun, he is not a fighter, he is not one who likes guns and he would chose life over death any day. He was in 1 moment confronted with a lot. Lisbon in danger, handling a weapon, killing a man and then finally killing a man who held the keys to Red John. So credit where credit is due, we see the range of emotions and horror in Jane and Baker pulled it off perfectly.

    Season 2, I'm ready!
