The Mentalist Review: "Code Red"

at . Comments

Last night on The Mentalist Jane and Lisbon had a pretty deadly situation on their hands!

In "Code Red", could you imagine being stuck in a building that has a deadly virus leak? Who would you call in your last minutes alive?

Dangerous Suitcase

We understand that Jane did what he needed to do in order to find out who the real killer was, but how great was it that Lisbon punched him in the nose?!

We get that Jane was trying to prove a point to Lisbon that she should be happy that she has a life, but really, he should have let her in on his scheme. We thought that was just plain mean.

But, we did like that Jane said that if he was dying he would call her. It showed that he does have some feelings for her. Before Lisbon realized what Jane did, you could see it in her eyes that she was touched.

Jane really knows how to read people. He can tell right away if you are lying or telling the truth. How awesome would it be to have him be one of your friends? You could have him question anyone you thought was lying to you - better yet, teach you a couple tricks!

No word yet on John Red and we are anticipating his next moves! Hopefully very soon and if you read our spoilers you know it will be something to look forward to!

It is also strange that Rigsby and Van Pelt haven't really shown anything about their relationship. We hope to see more steamy scenes with these two!

Until next week, we leave you with a few of our favorite The Mentalist quotes after the jump!

The actor playing the lead CDCA agent is Tony Curran - a brilliant Scottish actor who apparently does a fantastic american accent. Weird that he isn't listed among the cast (even in IMDB) or identified in the photo captions...

Jane is showing less restraint than ever, both in his comments and facial expressions. I've even seen looks that kids make behind their parents' or teachers' back. Getting punched by Lisbon was, as Jane says it, a cathartic moment. His conversation with the grieving daughter was touching but immediately after, a complete lack of emotion, he really shows how removed he is emotionally from other's grief.
