  • At last, an episode that gives us more on Red John.

    This was a really great episode of The Mentalist, a really good way to come back after the new year. Most of the episodes in the season so far have shed no light whatsoever on the mysterious Red John who murdered Patrick Jane's wife and daughter. This episode told us a lot more about Patrick's adversary and did it very well. The sub plot about the murdered girl was also engaging and well-written. The scene where the team were threatened with suspension but still held their ground to support Patrick was particularly well done. This gives great promise for the rest of the season.
