The Mentalist Review: "Blood Money"

at . Comments

If you are a big Law and Order fan - this episode of The Mentalist was right up your alley! The whole show involved being in court and how proceedings follow.

Jane and Lisbon Picture

When "Blood Money" first started - we really didn't know what to expect with Van Pelt putting a hit on Rigsby.

We knew their relationship didn't necessarily end on the best of terms, but we wouldn't have guessed it would lead her to do this! Obviously, this was just another one of the CBI's stings to get Mr. Black to admit he killed Ms. Flowers.

How annoyed were you that because of Jane's silly antics, it cost the team from getting Mr. Black thrown in jail!? Of course everything and everyone ended up exactly where they should be, but at that moment, we could understand exactly the kind of annoyance Lisbon constantly has to put up with. 

The episode was jammed packed with action - and we must say - we loved every second of it! Who would have thought that the bad guy would end up being one of the good guys? We really didn't see that one coming....not! As much as this ending was pretty obvious, we have to say we loved every second anyway!

Possible, Elderly Suspect

The little old lady in the wheelchair being the mastermind behind it all was pure comical genius! She was so cute and then Bam! She had Jane and Lisbon carted away! Awesome! Purely awesome!

How great was it watching the brief connection Lisbon and Jane shared while they were in the box cart? And equally funny, getting rescued by a boy with a goat! Hopefully, before the season is over, Lisbon and Jane can share something more romantic - dare we say even a kiss?!

What did you make out of last night's episode? Loved it or loved to hate it?! Either way, we are happy that this show is on the air and can't wait to see what antics Jane will get into next week!

Follow the jump to read a few of our favorite The Mentalist quotes from last night's episode!

Who can be trusted? On tonight's Covert Affairs, it's clear that it's important to trust others, but also a huge gamble.


I wasn;t too thrilled with this episode, too much buffoonery, and honestly all of it purloined from other shows and none too well. Please. please cut out the cute and bring a little realism in the mix it's been too long. I hope the next few episodes will bring us back to the Jane of last year, the first season was better written by far, Mr. heller are you listening?


@ Lea: You're right! I really hope they get together, although I think there might be some people who disagree xD


Jane and Lisbon were spot on! Loving their chemistry. They should have more great dialogues and scenes like in the container.
