  • Red Sails in the Sunset

    We did not get a real case this week, but we did have some great scenes with Mr. Jane and Ms. Martin on the run, and that made for fun TV. This is a good role for Emmanuelle Chriqui and I hope we see more of her on The Mentalist in the future.

    For the Red John haters, they probably won't like this episode though.
  • Martins & Prison

    To everyone who's asking about her original escape from prison, she was broken out of the state prison and out of CBI's custody and put into a federal prison.
  • Hitchcock

    Did anyone else notice how Hitchcockian this entire episode was? The use of color, or lack thereof? The soundtrack? Good episode.
  • who shook his hand?

    ... who we've already seen, was shaking Jane's hand and could be friends with him on other circumstances?

    am i the only one who is thinking of Walter Mashburn here?? he is smart, he is bored, he loves beautiful woman, he has all the money which maybe makes it easier to work for him... and he said something on that beach to Janes about being friends...

    but maybe he is only one "big hand" of Red John, maybe he himself is it... wanna bet?

    and i do not get the point of Lorelai being in that prison: if the FBI secretly moved her there... but they made the deal that Jane should interview her.. why is he now no longer allowed to do that??
  • Anyone - or just Michael

    Please explain where it is known that the FBI secretly moved her to a federal prison? i was lost when this happened, i mean i know i step away to grab some snacks in between scenes but how the heck did i miss this???????? i was dissapointed when i found out she was still in prison and thought this might have been a huge script error.

  • Who is Red John!?

    At first I thought it must be the Homeland Security guy, but I'm fairly certain he's a Red Herring. Who is Red John?!

    Also, Lorelei didn't break out of prison, the FBI (or someone in the FBI) secretly moved her to a different prison and kept it all secret from the CBI. That's why Jane's been spending all this time over the last few episodes trying to get her back from the FBI - there'd be absolutely no point if Red John got her out, because she'd either be long gone or dead.
  • very thrilling

    Although this Red John thing has been going on for a while this time the story was really thrilling. I think almost everyone looks at Kirk and thinks, "could he be Red John?" - I did all the time. And the look on Patrick's face at the end was very - let's say - funny. Let's see where this whole Lorelai / Red John / Kirk thing leads us.
  • Lorelei and Jane on the run.

    This is the episode that lets us know where this season is heading We know that Lorelei knows who Red John is and with the help of Bret Stiles Jane get Lorelei out of prison but he needs to get her to trust him For Jane it isn't as easy as you think but it was all worth it when we find out the biggest clue about Red John which is Jane has shook hands with him and I think we have seen it happen in one of the episodes It was very interesting to see Robert Kirkland in this episode but now I think he is too obvious to be Red John because he shook hands with Jane on the episode before this and Lorelei was in prison when it happened but we will see how this clue effects the season Now we can say Jane has an advantage over Red John.
  • I dont understand

    I thought Martins already escaped from prison. when Jane went to visit her, they brought out some one else. in the previous episode, Jane was blaming the FBI for losing her and Jane was questioning drivers to figure out how she got out. How did she end up in prison again? Did i miss something?
  • Best season yet?

    Is it me, or is this, by far, the best season of The Mentalist yet? There's just so much going on:

    - Lorelai's story.

    - The rivalry between Lisbon and Volker.

    - Robert Kirkland. (Red John ('s friend))??

    - The fact that Jane has already met RJ.

    I personally don't think Robert is RJ, because how could Lorelai know they shook hands if it happened while she was in prison?
