Storyline

Jared Renfrew has lost the last appeal against his conviction for the rape and murder of Undine Kopecki, the daughter of his family estate's housekeeper. Jared promises to deliver Red John to Patrick if he gets him out by proving his innocence. Jane accepts, but has to resign and the whole CBI team risks suspension to help him. Jared's brother and business 'heir', Gardner Renfrew, opposes their efforts. Red John meanwhile has infiltrated the CBI computer network and seems to stay one move ahead, however brilliantly Patrick advances. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When Jane accuses Vanna Clooney of lying about her daughters and Jareds Relationship he says: "You took your twenty Pieces of Silver", referring to the Bible where the Traitor Judas gets paid by the Priests to Sell out Jesus. Judas did in fact get thirty Pieces of Silver, not twenty. See more »

Goofs

When the bodies are found Red John's symbol is placed on the side wall. This means it is not visible unless they turn to see it after looking directly at the dead bodies. For continuity, per the The Mentalist: Pilot episode, the symbol should have been placed on the tile above them or on the door to the bathroom. This is a critical detail that does not change over the run of the series. See more »

Quotes

Virgil Minelli: Okay here it is. If you pursue this any further,I'm going to have to throw you out of the CBI. We can't take that liability. I very much do not want to have to do that!
Patrick Jane: [Clears his throat] I know you don't. So, uh, well, I'll spare you the trouble.
[Puts his card on the desk]
Patrick Jane: I quit.
Teresa Lisbon: Don't do that.
Patrick Jane: [Looking at Lisbon] No. It's okay. It's best this way. You are the Good Witch, Glinda, obviously. Thank you. I learned a lot.

Best Episode of the series yet!
6 September 2011 | by (Liverpool) – See all my reviews

Although some critics think this episode is a too implausible and fake, I personally think this is the best episodes of one of the best shows on TV. Without a doubt the best two best things about the show are Simon Bakers character, Patrick Jane, a genius with a horrible past. He plays the role so well and is such an underrated actor. The other thing is Red John. The main antagonist of the show. A serial killer who kills people and leaves a smiley face of there blood at the crime scene. Not to mention he also killed Jnes wife and daughter. So in my opinion Episodes that have references to Red John are the best. And this does. It also has a decent story and mystery. Although the season finale is the best episode of the whole season. This episode is certainly one of the best.
