20 November 2009 | by (CT) – See all my reviews

I am now totally disappointed and annoyed with this show; this episode did this series in for me. The main enjoyment of the show has been Jane's abilities for observation and insight. It's been bad enough that he's been so glib about it and he doesn't have to work for his conclusions. But now we're stuck with Red John front and center and the writers are making him much too skillful and cunning to approach anything like reality. The major problems i had with this episode 1) Bosco just sat there and watched the other two in the room get shot, then after he was shot he decided "oh, i better defend myself" and went for his gun --too late of course. This is not the way a cop on the force all those years reacts. 2) John (or his right hand) couldn't have had that much knowledge to be able to get into the security system computer and modify things just so. I could believe he could have destroyed all the data, but to specifically target and modify the CCTV data was too much to believe. 3) More importantly, Red John's ability to infiltrate the CBI building to commit his assassination was unrealistic, especially with the recent lock down. 4) Most importantly, Jane would have known Red John wouldn't let his Right Hand live so he should have taken extra precautions to safeguard her life. They made it seem that the thought never crossed his mind.
