At the beginning of the episode Jane says to Lisbon: "Do you know, in seven years, each and every cell is completely replaced in your body?". That is not entirely correct. While it is true that individual cells have a finite lifespan and are replaced when they die, this doesn't happen to all cells - for instance cerebral neuron don't get replaced when they die and cardiomyocyte heart cells are replaced at a reducing rate as we age. Even in people who have lived a very long life, less than half of the cardiomyocyte cells have been replaced. Those that aren't replaced have been there since birth. See more »


Patrick Jane: Erica, it's over. I'm sure of it.
Erica Flynn: Don't be. No everyone's as smart as you.

Low point for the show
11 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally caught this in reruns and kind of wish I hadn't. The episode had a great build-up with Jane facing off with a suspect that also makes her living analyzing personalities but the ending just fizzled. She was intelligent, stoic, and organized right up to the finale. They really cheated their way to a victory here plot-wise unnecessarily. Can we not have a guaranteed collar every week? Knowing that the good guys will always win takes the fun out of it. That may be fine for a CSI crowd where all logic takes a leap out the window but this show is better than that.

The B-plot with Rigsby was okay, if again more big doofus stuff from an actor that deserves better (check his biography). Good work from Cho who reluctantly if tartly offers dating advice.

Nice to see Morena Baccarin looking human as well.
