Argentinian crime baron Gabriel Porchetto's son and heir Gabriel Junior is shot expertly in the hot-tub during a party in their luxury cabin in a state forest. Gabriel senior is in the final stage of terminal cancer, so adolescent son Sergio Porchetto becomes his heir. Security chief Curtis Nett is remarkably uncooperative. Junior compromised the gang's business by challenging Luis Ozorio's Mexican drug cartel, the Zetas. Patrick tricks Senior and his boys to stage a trap. After a pendant is returned now the investigation into Grace's shooting that killed FBI agent and lover Craig O'Laughlin, his specter seems to haunt her, but when she gets lost in the forest while guarding presumed key witness Janpen, a hooker, it actually watches over her.

drivel rules
27 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Coming from a fan of mentalist, this episode is one of the worst if not the worst and most preposterous ever. Don't remember when was last that I saw SUCH drivel!!

I believe the show has established a certain standard of quality and the authors MUST stick to it to prevent it from turning into a joke or parody. Hopefully it was just a one-off, not a trend: I would hate to lose one of my favorite shows with such an excellent cast, but variably convincing scripts. Hence it would be advisable for the producers to think of reinforcing the group of scriptwriters to make the plots more intriguing but less predictable and whacky.
