15 October 2017 | by (Belgium, Gent) – See all my reviews

I agree with 'The Joker' that this is one the best/the best episodes of the Mentalist. It's was like a serial killer supernova with all of the most important&greatest minds/serials killers of the show at their best. This one also had no doubt the best ending any episode could possibly have. Also a big bravo for Panzer/David Paymer for his incredible enactment of a cold blooded psycho-killer. He was very convincing and giving you the shivers with just his look. This was The Mentalist at its best and awesome entertainment. I have enjoyed re watching this many times. This one gets my Oscars! :)
