Storyline

CBI director Gale Bertram achieved a fragile deal with the FBI to keep the Red John arrest screw-up from the press. The field agents remain on war footing, even ready to banter physically. The rivalry extends to custody of key witness Lorelei Martins, whom Patrick is hell-bent on. Meanwhile the team, FBI agent Gabe Mancini and his partner must team up to investigate the apparently indiscriminate murder on Norris's hotel employees Rex Longo and Nicola Karlsen. Patrick uses it as deceptive change for Lorelei but still catches the unlikely killer. Written by KGF Vissers

FBI and CBI Are Being Childish!
1 October 2012 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

As we saw at the beginning both agencies fighting against each other with fisticuffs is really out of line. As both agencies would be out of a job and that would not be tolerated in the REAL world.

Sure Hollywood loves to portray the feds mainly the FBI vs local or state law enforcement for entertainment purposes. But a fight like this would be very scandalous.

Anyway the Red John thing is needed in the show in order for the viewer interest. As when Red John is found out and possibly killed, so the Mentalist will be over as a show. It is to keep you guessing.

In the midst of it a lottery win is not what it is suppose to be. As someone who was the real winner was killed over a huge lottery ticket. As the team have to find out the real killer or killers for that matter.

Meanwhile Cho losing his cool was something that was not expected. But still both agencies would had been out of a job if that happened in real life.

Yes you could "thank" Patrick Jane for instigating the fight. But still, the fight was way too childish and fiction for our taste.
