|Mentalist, The 2.23 Red Sky in the Morning (2010)
Jane goes on a date with Kristina but just as he is about to flee, Red John interrupts by posting a video to the internet showing a point-of-view of his latest killing.
Being a Red John episode this is much more intense than most of the show and it’s good to see Simon Baker step up and convey that tension brilliantly. The know-it-all is still there (decrying the other know-it-all, Kristina, of course) but he also delivers genuine fear, panic and horror at the unfolding events. We get the voice of Red John in this episode but Jane’s calmness and lying about Red John speaking to him afterward is a bit perplexing. As expected, would-be girlfriend Kristina becomes a target though the way it happens is interesting, resonant and convincing.
This Mentalist, The episode contains gory and unpleasant scenes, graphic gun violence, extremely unpleasant inferred scenes.
