Patrick arrives in his new Texan FBI HQ and accepts to help investigate the murder on five DAA agents in Corpus Christi. First agent Kim Fischer, officially in charge, must accept his latest demand, a comfy couch, but bonding with Lisbon, she starts to settle into giving Jane what he wants. The DAA agent in charge presents plausible suspects from the Colombian drug cartel-related gang his team was investigating, but one by one is murdered too. Patrick takes a special, seemingly romantic interest in Krystal Markham, 'widow' of the first of those, while whiz analyst Jason Wylie elaborates an idea to trace suspects by car motor sound.

DAMN! Absolutely fantastic!
16 October 2014 | by TJlive800See all my reviews

This episode yet again proves the capabilities of Ken Woodruff - I absolutely ADORE the new version of The Mentalist SO MUCH! In addition to the massive improvements in directing, writing, tone, lighting, quality, etc., the case in this episode was just brilliant. The new Jane after Red John further establishes him as one of the best TV characters in history - he's playful, flamboyant, charming, and downright hilarious like he was before, though it's now all purely genuine as he's free from Red John and can embrace the world's pleasures to the fullest. This episode ran so smoothly, with some fantastic action pieces, perfect directing (all those integrated scenes, camera angles, use of the new lighting and color tone), sharp dialogue and retaining a joyfully light yet gripping and intense tone that led to a hell of a conclusion. Basically everything that happened in this episode screamed "badass". Ken Woodruff has done it again.
