Storyline

In small town Rancho Rosa, locals spouses Selby (33) and Jana Vickers are found stabbed in their car. It's their 1995 high school class's reunion, which they never attended. Selby was a social leper since he confessed a cruel prank at Derek Logan's expense 15 years ago. And he was involved in blackmail. Patrick works out the past and abuses Rigsby's own secret to force him to help set a trap. Written by KGF Vissers

I knew it! I knew that Jane figured out the change in Rigsby and Van Pelt's relationship!
17 January 2010 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

He was just waiting for the right moment to use it to his advantage. Although I still thought he could have held out a little longer, but knowing Jane, the temptation was just killing him, he had to blurt it out.

As for Rigsby, denying it only admitted his guilt. Instead of "I don't know what you are talking about" he should have said "Me and Van Pelt, I wish, but you know that's against the rules Jane". Anything other than how well he handled the 'black mail' moment. Shame on you Jane, the amount of things Rigsby did to either keep your butt out of jail, or even for you to keep your job, and this is how you repay him! I suppose I expected nothing less. He did keep his secret in the end, and I doubt he would have really told unless provoked.

Did I sense a disconnection between Rigby and Van Pelt. Being ordered to sit down behind a computer screen, doing nothing but moving your finger tips, felt like a demotion for Rigsby. It was obvious the awkward eye glances suggested his dislike of his position, while Van Pelt got to do all the work, barely giving him any juicy details worth enlightening his then bored state. What did you think Van Pelt sat around doing Rigsby?

I really couldn't be bothered with the case for this week, although it was a brilliant change for topic and surprising revelation, the only part I enjoyed was the dance between Lisbon and Jane. "More than words is all you have to do to make it real, then you wouldn't have to say that you love me, cos I'd already know..." Surprisingly that was Lisbon's favorite song, which meant that there is a softer side to her. I am certain Jane requested that music the very same moment, to mellow the mood between them. After all he just lied to her about Rigsby and the day off. That secret only meant he would forever have something to hold over Rigsby and Van Pelt's head, and he would collect once the opportunity came along.

Although there isn't any advancement in 'Red John' and everything surrounding the case, 'The Mentalist' has a lot of excitement built within it and I love analyzing the way Jane thinks. He analyzes everyone but himself. Wouldn't it be cool if there was a 'smart ass' out there just like him, like a round off match to see who's wittier.

At one point I noticed Rigsby's English accent slipping and a little Welsh got into the mix. I don't know if it was obvious or not, but Owain Yeoman was rather delicious in that suit, anyone could have eaten him up.
