Arguably, the best episode of The Mentalist
1 November 2014 | by (Qatar) – See all my reviews

We've already seen how brutal Jane can be, his whole mind is a mystery. In this episode Jane goes against a man who is a serial killer known as the San Joaquin Killer. This man is not only a killer, but also a master manipulator. For years he's been taking the lives of women and hiding behind a very unbreakable mask of innocence which Jane saw through in no time. But this killer could not be stopped by the law as one of the authorities clarified, their 'hands are tied.' But Jane's wasn't, what he did next I'm pretty sure surprised all of us who never saw it coming. The return of Red John and the elimination of a man who challenged his ethics and skills. 10/10 to saw the least!
