The Mentalist 3.20 “Redacted” Review
Patrick Jane has gotten himself into very big trouble. In this episode of the show, Jane engaged the services of the robber Culpepper to forcefully enter the home of LaRoche and the whole thing went very ugly.
The way LaRoche held on to his petite dog as he shot at his supposed robber was adorable. Though it could have disturbed his aim, it was simply sweet.
It was difficult to comprehend why the taped plastic container was not opened by Culpepper. Why was it placed in a safe? One would have expected him to smash it open for curiosity sake. It is most likely that viewers have not seen the last of that stupid container and what ever it contains.
Jane’s problem so much weighed him down that it appeared as if he missed out on a large portion of the case however in the end he recovered.
The best part of the show is probably when Heather thought she was in the right for murdering her boyfriend as she had the intention of using the cash for virtuous purposes and not for bad.
The trio of Rigsby, Cho and Grace got very little show time in this episode. The way Grace used her feminine wiles to get the mercenary to come inside was especially pleasant. She did put up a good performance. It was also fun watching Cho and Rigsby as they stood behind Grace like soldiers waiting to pounce on the man if he failed to do her bidding.
It was a big relief when Jane eventually admitted all his guilt to Lisbon. He must have had a lot of trust in her to have confessed his crime. Apparently, to him she is first and foremost, a friend before a cop. Happily, she too felt the same.
As Lisbon entered the room, no one could categorically say what she was going to do. She must have felt better after striking Culpepper. The way she put her butt on the line shows the depth of her affections for Jane. This is something she would never have considered doing just a few years ago. But now, she did not even give it a second thought.
