Mentalist, The 2.10 Throwing Fire (2009)

CBI investigate the death of a baseball scout in his zen garden.

5/10

Despite a brilliant baseball-in-the-side-of-the-head and interesting childhood (Iowa, 1986) flashback’s for Jane, this is an otherwise weak episode with a poorly defined story and suspects and too much all-knowing Jane being smug. Chris Bochu plays the young Patrick Jane and, despite his blond hair, reminded me very much of Smallville‘s Tom Welling.

This Mentalist, The episode contains unpleasant scenes.
