Mentalist, The 2.19 Blood Money (2010)

CBI investigate the death of an Assistant District Attorney but identifying the killer isn’t too much of a problem. Because he’s a professional killer, though, catching and convicting him is going to be the hard part.


There’s some good fun here but this is a slightly more serious episode than most as the baddie is a psychopath and is clearly presented as such and, well, psychopaths are disturbing. Additionally, the series is beginning to struggle under the weight of Jane’s recklessness as he deliberately upsets an armed smuggler, a psychopathic hitman, a murderer and a judge. Though it’s still fun.
