Mentalist, The 2.14 Blood In, Blood Out (2010)

Cho’s best friend from his gang-banger days is shot to death after trying to contact Cho for help. Cho is reluctant to get involved in the investigation, ostensibly because it’s an open-and-shut case of gang rivalry but more because he wants to avoid the guilt that may come from knowing he could have helped and didn’t.

5/10

A ‘this time it’s personal’ episode for supporting character Kendall Cho and, despite containing decent character material, feels silly and unconvincing, especially in the transparent climax. Though it remains mindlessly entertaining enough, through it’s undisguised predictability, The Mentalist is in serious danger of losing viewer interest.

This Mentalist, The episode contains adult dialogue and substance abuse and violence, brief graphic gun violence.
