  • Okay episode

    8.0 wasn't a bad episode but it was kind of weak for a season opener. The case was utterly boring and I just couldn't bring myself to care about it. But the case of the week was never why I watched the show, it was Patrick Jane and his search for vengeance, his interactions with the team and his progress in starting to care for other people again.

    This episode provided some nice moments with Lisbon and Jane. But the fighting about who gets to interrogate Lorelei and who solves the case first was annoying and too predictable and not what the show should be about. As well as the "twist" with Lorelei suddenly not being in prison anymore - we've seen that before. I hope we get to see some more interesting episodes this season than this one and please some progress with the Red John storyline.
