Hedge fund Wilder broker Timothy Hartley, Nathan Vella's partner, is shot and has his throat slit in a field 100 miles from his even richer wife Peregrine née Cook's Hillsborough mansion. The corps is stolen by two armed men during transport in coroner Steiner's van. Given two earlier victim thefts inter-state, the FBI suspects organ tissue trade and sends special agent Craig O'Laughlin. Tim also was treated for an alien abduction delusion in that distant field. The coroner is allowed to collaborate clumsily for a morbid reason, which Jane helps carry to the bitter end. Written by KGF Vissers

The Mentalist can't seem to displease me
19 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the worst Mentalist episodes, the story is not as sharp as others and as I was watching the episode I couldn't help thinking that for the first time the Mentalist was loosing it's steam. However, it is still the same lovable format and characters that cant seem to annoy or disappoint me. I will carry on watching the Mentalist. And I can just tell the season finale is going to be amazing. Will Patrick meat Red John face to face aside from face to mask. I would also just like to mention that on a recent survey it showed that Gregory House of House, Jack Bauer of 24 and Patrick Jane of The Mentalist are the three most Broken characters on TV. I couldn't agree more, and credit to all three actors who are always at the top of their game whilst playing these roles.
