Mentalist, The 2.12 Bleeding Heart (2010)

The discovery of a mayoral aide buried at an official ground-breaking for a new development gets CBI involved but Jane is discomfited about a TV news reporter who gains fly-on-the-wall access to the investigation.


I love the way Jane runs as fast as possible from any physical confrontation. Beyond the obvious headline cold-reading skills of the character, this is, I feel, The Mentalist‘s most interesting and unusual contribution to the crime genre. Rigsby undoes his shirt for the second episode in a row while the awesomely nonchalant Cho most unusually cracks a smirk.

This Mentalist, The episode contains mild adult dialogue and unpleasant scene.
