Quotes

Patrick Jane: You said he's a purist. A man who kills simply for the pleasure of it. I'm starting to think he's a deeply damaged man who kills our of a need for attention - neglected as a child, I guess. What do you think, Jim?
James Panzer: Well, I think you couldn't be more wrong. Look, I know the San Joaquin Killer better than anyone, as you yourself have said. I've spent over a year inhabiting his mind. This man is brilliant. He's a genius who runs circles around the police... He's killed at will without repercussions...

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!
