Episode cast overview:
Austin Tichenor ...


Wealthy widow Rosemary Tennant is found dead in the gutter outside the 'temple' of her 'psychic guide' Kristina Frye, a despicable fraud in Jane's eyes. Rosemary lived with her children Clara and Travis Tennant, a troubled teenager missing for 10 days, and philander photographer Jeremy Hale. She was about to change her will, presumably disinheriting Travis 'to shake him up', but in favor of which outsider? Patrick dissects all relationships and sets a double-bottomed trap.

Kristina Frye: I think it's important to love oneself. How you do you feel about yourself?
Patrick Jane: Oh.
[Jane chuckles]
Patrick Jane: You tell me. And forget about the $500 an hour. I'm on Civil Service pay.
Kristina Frye: Okay, for free then. I think you act assured and arrogant but inside you're troubled with deep guilt and self-loathing. A recent trauma in your past perhaps. But you're more than a little unstable.
[to Lisbon]
Kristina Frye: You have your work cut out for you.
Grace Van Pelt: You *are* good.

Very disappointing episode. I was waiting with baited breath for the moment the "real Psychic" would be exposed as a fraud.

"Knowing" about the imminent danger of the victim could simply be explained away as a random guess that happened to come true and "knowing" the whereabouts of the stolen car could also have been a lucky guess at a likely hiding place as pointed out by the character Teresa Lisbon. Jane himself holds celebrity status and is therefore very googleable. His kid was knifed in her sleep so would the obvious question be "Did she wake up"? So all explainable but the episode panders to the believers rather than the thinkers in the audience.

I think what annoyed me most was the way the "psychic" was made out to be a kindly woman attempting to help poor souls in need instead of simply a cold con artist who preys on recently bereaved and vulnerable people. Under any other circumstances a con artist (if caught) would most probably find himself/herself liable for prosecution but the same is not true for these ruthless individuals.

I wish I had missed it and I hope there are no more like it.
