hi entwife. long time no see. :D i have liked the last two episodes in great part because they've been stuffed to the gills with red john. once again, i didn't give a damn about the case of the week. that was a waste of budget exploding a car when they could have spent it on more suits and better snacks for sb. also, simon looked so beautiful in this last ep and he's still has that impatient rage simmering under the surface. i can't imagine what this show would be like without john le rouge. hope we get to see.
hi all @carobachik. i agree. jane's scene with the three guys in bertram's office showed that his head is definitely in the game. he said something revealing about himself (the nervous breakdown) to make all of them think he's becoming unhinged and lacks a governor between his brain and his mouth. then he says, "red john has made a big mistake and doesn't know it." then he refuses to talk about it because the office might be bugged. so even if jane has no info about a mistake that red john made, he's planted that thought and knows it will give red john pause.the beauty of disinformation.
i think publishing the thing is a great idea. not my choice for the way this show should end, but terrific. and fun. patrick spends too many of our tax dollars. he disturbs the peace. he is the cause of grief and mayhem. that's what makes him so good. i want him to win against red john doing all the terrible stuff that makes him wonderful. please no comeuppance for patrick. no having him be a part of a finely oiled crime-solving machine. let him plan something only to have it fall apart and at the last moment, pull a great solution out of his beautiful behind. as long as that's the way the music goes, i don't care what the words are.
km. hello. nice to read your name.patrick didn't have a plan or a plan that he wanted to share with teresa for a very short time (hours?). when lisbon said more people will die, patrick said, "probably." was this flippant turn of phrase foreign to her? enough to make her go off half-cocked? lisbon had the patience of a drunken two year old in this ep. she wanted to act without coming up with something better than banal to do putting aside whether the team could have been informed or not. to give the info to grace who immediately blabs to rigsby for the lamest reason possible and then so on. they came off as the CBI team for the thinking impaired. i actually don't have that big a problem with teresa - she is the boss and it is a paramilitary org. but van pelt and rigsby
hi euterpe. just don't think lisbon can contribute by stamping her foot and saying "my turn to run things." i don't think she has the intellectual firepower here. jane was quite right. most of lisbon's tastes of patrick's medicine have resulted in crimes being solved. the fact that red john hasn't been caught says red john is smarter than other criminals (and perhaps jane) and therefore, is much smarter than lisbon. i don't know why she has a problem with someone being smarter than her (happens to me all the time) especially because it took jane like about two seconds to point out that red john would use the trackers against them.it will be interesting to see if jane says "i told you so."
hi mimi, hi creamy. so glad to see you here.general comment. i do think lisbon was a bit jejune. as were grace and wayne. cho is tougher, less self-indulgent (he wouldn't look in laroche's box, neither would jane) and therefore is more mature and dependable. i don't think it helps lisbon's cause when she yells that she's the boss and then does something weak and ill-considered and foolhardy. don't get me wrong, i love lisbon but she doesn't come off well here when she asserts herself here. if you're gonna be f*ckin' loud, you better be f*ckin' right. i don't know why she felt the need to put a stake in the ground the day they saw the dvd. hard to be impatient and lose faith in jane after waiting for 4 whole hours. as jane said to the guy he was held hostage with in the bank, the one who asked if he had a plan, "what are you, five?"
hi feint. hi katempw. i thought it was a very good episode in that the clever things jane did actually came off as clever. when you see what he did with the baseball player in front of the safe, you can see why he's the only one clever enough to drive the red john bus. so i think the series is getting back to its roots showing what a mind he has. and that it will save them all; if not himself. as i write this, i shudder at the idea of the series ending with anything but patrick being the brilliant mind who comes up with the solution. can't be lisbon or anyone else. they can execute (no pun intended) but they can create the ultimate plan. my fervent wish.
@peridot i've always been a proponent of rj as stiles' son. he's the errant son sent to elliston to straighten him out but instead he starts murdering. he has money from his dad. can perform tasks for his dad. and stiles won't turn him in because he's his baby boy.
hello to all. i've been following along and enjoying the comments. in the ep, jane really reminded me of himself in red sails at night. that jumpy, twitchy anger. the way he felt betrayed by lisbon. he really felt close to the edge. i don't think the humongous portrait indicated anything except the couple have hideous taste. only in the bedroom of the russian mobster have we seen such a woik-a-aht. jane's interaction with the blonde cop was interesting. she definitely knew him and expected a greeting. i loved bertram's scene in the office. "i am many different things to different people." i thought he was gonna do "sympathy for the devil." I thought lisbon was lame and kind of grace-like to defy jane. she should bet with him.
hi entwife. have missed you. are you writing more?
