Trivia

Virtually every episode of the series has a reference to blood, the color red, or a combination of the two. Additionally a woman character, (besides Van Pelt [Righetti]) either has red hair or has a name that plays off the color red. In this episode both are true with the title, Scarlett Fever, and the episode's namesake, Scarlett Marquesa. See more »

Quotes

Teresa Lisbon: How many times have I told you - no hypnotism? It's illegal, and it's unethical. And you cannot keep doing it!
Patrick Jane: Calm yourself, woman. It's no big thing.
Teresa Lisbon: Oh, really? This man's lawyer is right this minute coming down the hallway wearing a mean face. Something tells me he'll argue that point with you. Let's go!

Death at a posh residence in Sacramento, California...
17 February 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Another intriguing episode of THE MENTALIST with Simon Baker as the man who has a good reading of people and plays upon instincts to trap a murderer's confession.

As usual, the dialog is crisp and to the point and Baker has to find out who wanted to kill a woman named Scarlett at a house party where the woman was poisoned and fell to her death from an upper floor railing. Naturally, most of the guests have some sort of grudge to hold against the victim. But after the second murder of a young female on a massage table, Simon realizes where the trouble lies after a perceptive conversation with one of the guests.

He plots with the first victim's child, a young boy, to get the murderer to reveal their guilt.

It's clever and well done with another sly performance from Baker, who seems to be enjoying himself immensely in this handsomely produced series.
