The Mentalist > The Mentalist Review: Then, It's Gone... > Comments Page 2
That last line "It's there, then it's gone" as the man was dying resonated so much with me. It brought tears to my eyes (and I'm not a Mentalist fan, I watch it with my husband because he likes it and I often read or browse on my laptop while (barely) watching). But that final moment took me by surprise. It reminded me of my mother's death. I was there with her when she died (of Alzheimer's) and that's literally the way it was: One moment she was there, the next she was gone. The light in her eyes just went out, leaving me broken. Yesterday's Mentalist brought it all back. As much as I dislike Jane's character, I appreciated his kindness in yesterday's episode.
The writing, acting, directing on this show are superb! Loved the ending with the magic trick. Someday I hope I can write a show as good as this one.
