Storyline

In minutes on site in Sacramento, Jane solves the mall murder on John Rasmussen. Virgil Minelli transfers the Red John investigation from Lisbon's to Sam Bosco's team. Yet Patrick promises to help solve 'one more' ordinary case, a ransacked motel-room Jane Doe. From a group photograph he cleverly identifies Jaffe publishing secretary Monica Dunninger, who went missing with $1,000,000, abandoning husband Hollis, daughter Kessie and even son Ansel with then presumably terminal cancer. Jane sets a fictitious bait-trap. Written by KGF Vissers

Leave it to Jane to make a messy fun.
23 September 2009 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

What happens when you take Patrick Jane off the Red John case, complete chaos. At least for now we have a silent fury, but next episode could be filled with utter madness.

The Mentalist Season Premiere opened with that exact front and he was quite ready to pack his things up and go home before it dawned on him how much his colleagues meant to him, with Lisbon being the cherry on top.

This week's case file was the traditional million dollar rip off where Jane set a web to catch the unknowing culprit. Don't mind that it has been done several times before, but clever Jane seems to put a new spin to it which brought out the glamor in this mystery filled episode.

The one question we should ask is what Jane would do next? He's off the case and some stuck up snob wannabe has taken his place, what was that mysterious call about in the end scene? What was he up to? Lisbon would need to put a tighter leash on him, because she's the only one he trusts to even put a leash and don't care what she said, I just don't like that crazy replacement guy.

For now at least, I loved the opening act wit the lover boy and the jealous husband, hilarious. Leave it to Jane to make a messy fun.
