The Mentalist 'Red Scare' Review

Mysterious and murderous seems to be the theme for most series, Halloween is probably the main reason why every series has this sneaky, scary-ness going on. At least 'The Mentalist' found a way to put a little love in the mix. How about that kiss between Rigsby and Van Pelt huh - sure steamy. I can tell you one thing, I am sure Jane caught on to their relationship epiphany the moment after they came out of that room. His eyes whiffed across the both of them and it was like he gained some kind of insight into their relationship. They've been hinting it for two seasons and they finally opened up to each other - the wait was worth it.

Jane found new ways to make all of his cases into some twisted game of 'Clue' or even 'Let's find out who don' it'. Everything is like a merry-go-round for him and since there wasn't no updates about the 'Red John' case things would continue to be that way. I find it shocking that Boscow didn't find that bug Jane placed in his office. It's either Jane was clever enough to place it in a too obvious-well hidden place or Boscow' would be waiting for the right moment to nail him good.

Seeing that Boscow and Lisbon have some kind of thing going on, Jane would not be too concerned about him finding it.

This weeks case file was interesting non-the-less, if we didn't know how to create the illusion of a ghost, this was one fun way to portray it. A neat trick learnt for those trick-or-treaters. Lately all these cases have something in common; a witty Jane, a mouse trap and the revealed suspect who admits why they did it. No matter how monotonous the plot is, Jane always brings a measure of humor to it.
