Storyline

Popular society gym coach Markus Kuzmenko, a former swimmer and serial womanizer, is found at home, skull crushed with a gym weight. Adulterorus clients probably feared exposure of affairs with him, colleague Mike Vilanueva lost clients to Markus and he recently repaid a loan-shark. Patrick, found not guilty in court, is reinstated as CBI consultant and assigned to the team of senior agent Ray Haffner, who handles the case and recruits Cho to read Jane. Lisbon remains suspended pending a full investigation, but the old team conspires under Patrick to solve the Kuzmenko case on their own. Jane stirs trouble among Ray's own team and sets traps for him and the murderer. Tim's widow commits suicide, leaving a note she couldn't live without her Red John, but the real one's lover doesn't recognize his corpse. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Teresa Lisbon: The thing is - not dealing with you everyday has been very restful for me. My back pain's gone. I sleep really well. So I'm not actually so sure I'm grateful to be back.
Patrick Jane: You're a terrible liar. No offense. Good honest people always bad liars.
Teresa Lisbon: Which makes you what?

Not a Bad One
30 September 2011 | by cB391See all my reviews

This episode focused more on bringing the group back together, along with the destruction of the group Jane was assigned to. The criminal was pretty obvious after his/her first scene, and finding that person made it trivial. They needed to stretch it out in an effort to show the incompetence of the new leader, and that's why it took the long road. The ending was great, because there wasn't any guarantee as to which way it would go, though again, it is clear to see why they go in the direction they do. Good to see the original team back, and now they can get back to the cases. The pranks that were pulled were funny and realistic, made for a few good laughs.
