Storyline

Emily Plaskett is discovered in a country town park, slashed Red John-style. Her twin sister Maya is missing. Patrick Jane assumes another challenge for him. An airplane-written, indeed taunting message traces elaborately to Roy Tagliaferro, a dead trail. Jane realizes the modified MO indicates a second culprit. Sheriff Hardy conducts the search for Maya, CSI the murder investigation. The Plasketts' brother Drake knew Em had an affair with smalltime drug supplier local Morgan Gutherie, but Jane believes his claim he was threatened anonymously himself and finds a wire.

Not the Usual M.O.
27 June 2009 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I enjoy The Mentalist as fairly intelligent, light-hearted character-driven hour of TV, one of few I make a point of catching. This episode, though still loyal to the characters, was much darker and more intense. I won't give anything away here, but I will say EXCELLENT turn by Alicia Witt. I knew she was in it and still almost didn't recognize her. She and everyone else were just excellent in this change of pace. I sometimes get irritated by Jane's characteristic child-like grin, but it was completely missing from this episode, and I found myself wishing that something would happen to bring it back. This episode made me appreciate Simon Baker as an actor. I honestly don't want to leave any spoilers here, but this was just an excellent and unforgettable episode, one that I would gladly watch again, just to see what I missed in the details. I'll end by saying excellent use of Alicia Witt's skills as a pianist.
