The Mentalist 4.8 ”Pink Tops’ Review
This episode was titled ‘Pink Tops’ and it was nice to see someone do something that was rare; Cho smiled and fans can’t remember if he had done it before.
But he case started with someone being killed who viewers got to know was an undercover cop. She really as good with what she was doing because there was no chance any body had in really knowing.
There was a double sided twist to the whole thing with the issue of the condoms they found on her. It’s was presumed that she used it to water proof the drugs but there was also another possibility that she was having an affair on the side.
Jane and Lisbon showed us how as team members they really know each other when they made exchanges about Lisbon’s sleeping patterns. It makes sense that they should know things about each other that do not need to be shaon screen because they are quite sundry. Lisbon kind of shocked others when she seemed to have known more of the Perry boys than the undercover cop.
The worked well with the family of the deceased especially with the kids and there were some teary eyed moments there. It was Jane who got to notice the boy in his place of hiding and Grace sat down with the old iMac; must have brought memories.
Jane didn’t seem to be ready to get into a conversation with Lisbon over Red John with was kind of unusual. It is probably an indication that they are yet to discuss the issue of the sign on the wall from the last episode. But even when there was doubt last week over whether Red John was still alive we still got to know that he believed he was so it would have been expected now that he has been proven to be the right that he would be interested in following it up with Lisbon.
The Cho scene really came as a surprise because it was a hooker that really got at him or seemed to for the first time. The pinky swear thing was really funny. It does look as if he was piqued by the fact that she saw through him the way others haven’t and this might have been the reason he went back to her.
It does look as if Jane is getting bolder and deeper into trouble. This has been something that has been building for some time now but him stealing drugs and all what not probably means that he would soon start to get noticed. It may be Cho who would be the first to that.
