Storyline

In Sacramento, state legislature lobbyist and lawyer Harvey Dublin goes missing from his limousine and his driver, Peter Russo, is found next to it shot in the head. New CBI director Gale Bertram, involved in a financial scandal Dublin's office handled, gives the case absolute priority, but Patrick refuses to work on it after being saved by Red John. Lisbon tricks him by confronting him with the mourning Russo family, so he vows revenge, saying she won't see coming, while predicting the kidnapping is fake. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The episode title is from an old sailors' mnemonic: "Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky in morning, sailors take warning." A colorful sunset often portends good weather, while a red sunrise tends to precede a day of bad weather (because weather patterns commonly move from west to east, especially along ocean trade routes). This isn't always true, but it's true enough to be worth remembering. It also echoes the old shepherds' mnemonic: 'Red sky at night; shepherds' delight. Red sky in the morning; shepherds' warning.' from which the sailors' rhyme was taken. The last episode's title, The Mentalist: Red Sky in the Morning (2010) takes its name from the same place.
