The Mentalist – Season 6 Episode 13 – Black Helicopters Review

ImageIn a way it’s clear they’re trying to move on from the whole Red John storyline, but finding and killing him in the mid season finale has me stumped. Was it a way to get more people to watch?  Or some of its viewership back? You tell me. All I knew is that the new formula is still finding its feet.

ImageI’m not really sure what the point of Rigsby and Van Pelt sticking around is when they’re going to be in the show for five minutes at a time. Granted, the show’s doing a better job than I thought it would of using them as characters now the team is split but I’d rather have more. Seeing Lisbon resigned to a desk, and being a mere FBI agent is interesting. She was the boss  before, the leader of the CBI team, and her new role doesn’t suit her. She needs to be dishing out the orders, and to have her the same rank as Cho is just weird. They need to involve Lisbon more.

ImageAn attorney general is found murdered in Mexico, and is found in the street dressed up in a hippie style outfit that makes her blend in. I found myself caring very little about the case this week, and I’m not sure how I feel about it. This is one of my favourite shows, but I can’t help but feel that they burnt their biggest bridge with Red John. I know the story had dragged over five seasons, but why can I see Season 6 ending with more dead bodies and a smiley face drawn in blood on the wall?

ImageTurns out the killer was on the farm in Gentry, Texas, and actually used to be an eco bomber as well. The attorney had recognised Marsha/Rachel and gone down to confront her and bring her in. After so many years on the run, there was no way she was going to get stuck in jail. Bit late for that now, cause your going love!

ImageI’d grown to love LaRoche after hating him at first, and the only part of the episode that had me intrigued was when JJ got shot at the end. Looked like he died, but you can never be too sure. Not sure what the point of it was, though? Guess we’ll have to wait for next week.

Don’t ruin this show. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee.
