Cast / crew
The case of a frozen doctor posed naked and garnished with yellow flowers in a cemetery is just the tip of the iceberg when Red John decides it’s time to reassert himself.
This is a great episode, even more so if you go in without spoilers, and worthy of acclaim as it tackles a crime drama tradition (SPOILER the mid-season clear-out) without feeling stereotypical and predictable. With the exception of one scene where Jane unplugs a patient’s morphine dispenser for no obvious reason, it is scripted sensitively and Simon Baker does well as our hero. Gregory Itzin also gets a good scene where he tears into a journalist for asking a stupid question. As this is a Red John episode, please note that it is more violent and darker in the tone than the regular episodes.
This Mentalist, The episode contains mild swear words and strong knife violence, graphic gun violence, gory and unpleasant scenes and sexuality.
