  • Be thou familiar, Patrick Jane.

    This ep had its usual mix of Patrick et al and as for leaving him alone at a school, when he'll get up to all manner of pranks, positing and persuasion! Calling him an actor, hey that was a wrong move, course he's an 'actor' and lots more besides. He's the CBI's one-man crime solving machine and he was on a roll here. Maybe he was at home here, seeing as his childhood was spent on a carnie circuit. Ahh Patty Jane what could have been...

    As always the murderer was guessed as soon as given screen time, obviously it had to have been someone connected with the play. "Frailty thy name is woman."

    Lisbon disappeared for a long while and there had to be cameras in the toilets since it was so pristine and clean, hey when were school toilets so clean.

    Grace helping out another needy girl, almost like her karma and she's trying to make things right after all that happened with O'Loughlin.

    So Rigg-sy is a dad, can't help but wonder if he really is the baby's father, or was it just some act to hold onto him.

    Great emotional part at the end when Patty tried so hard to ward off the tears in front of the team. He had to get away, what say you, he made a quick retreat to his attic hideout to have a good cry. Oh it's moments like this which keep this show so fresh. Seeing the baby photo reminded him of his own daughter and his profound loss and in an ep which had Hamlet, what a doubly sad tragedy was that.

    "But, break my heart, for I must hold my tongue."
