This was really a fantastic premiere. I wasn't sure how I was going to like this show because I am not a fan of Juliette Lewis whatsoever but I have always been a big fan of Ryan Phillipe so I figured I would give it a shot. Thank god I did because I was not disappointed. No I still am not any more fond of Juliette Lewis than I was going in but that's okay. We don't have to like her character. I kind of get the feeling though that she had a child who was murdered. The look on her face when Ben said obviously you aren't a parent said a lot. I know it is probably far too early to be trying to figure out who did it but my main suspect is Christy. She has been helping the police along in their investigation each step of the way. She made a point to say in front of Cornell that Ben had one of those flashlights she showed them, she let the police into the house without a search warrant, she kept sending her lawyer friend who wasn't a criminal lawyer and really wouldn't be much help to Ben and he was the one who advised against giving a DNA sample which ended up making Ben look guiltier. Dave had a point when he brought up how did Scott find out about Ben being Tom's father. That means someone else had to know. My guess would be Christy. Yes we know that Ben just confessed to her about sleeping with jess the night before Tom died but we don't know why he confessed because why would he all of a sudden confess after 6 years? Maybe Christy is the one who brought it up because she found out somehow. Then again I could definitely be jumping to conclusion. My second suspect is one we haven't met yet: Matty's (I think that was his name) brother Tyler. Matty was asking for him and he is supposedly away and the mother said Matty was just confused but what if he isn't? What if he came back from wherever he was and he killed Tom and the mother knows so she sent him into hiding? Just my initial guesses. Great show all around and I can't wait to delve deeper into this mystery.
I'm mostly bothered by how much the painting in Lip's dorm looks like Debbie.
I think all signs point to Tommy as the killer but would not be surprised if out of left field its been Sophia calling the shots and hiring some unknown assassin to perform the murders via Babylon.
I'm so conflicted! I just don't know who it is. I don't think it's Tommy, only because Flirtual just decimated Lindy's trust in him, which would essentially be her trust in Flirtual. And the killer wants her trust and love, sick as that is. I'm thinking maybe Jake, which make me sad as I'm team Jindy. :)
I have been a loyal fan for years, it took time for me to accept her after the shock of Kates death, but with her departure i cannot accept the replacement character, she seems ill-fitting for the groups. I have not watched the show since the 1st episode with the replacement. Such a shame because i really enjoyed watching the synergy between the all characters.This new character has no character what so ever. At least bring in Special Agent Abigail Boran as a replacement.
this will be one of my all time favorite shows.... it had all these great elements and simon baker was and always will be a class act...we will miss you all...
hey Carissa i know no one is perfect, but its not salem season 3, but salem season 2 as noted in the heading of this review... you really had me questioning my sanity...LOL
Right you are, Leon. So much for the new healthy diet I'm on! Thanks so much for the way you kindly pointed it out. You have a lot of class and it's much appreciated. :-)
I'll be waiting.
Why is Martha thinking of moving out ? She hardly has any monologue as it is. Moving out would make it worse.Where the heck did she pick up that guy! There has been no mention of a boyfriend at all and now she is sleeping with this stranger in her son's p.J's!She should be ashamed of herself.I'm the same age as her and I would never do that to my family. I can't see C.& B having a baby till the end of the series. Maybe the end is near .I'll really feel bad,its my favorite show!
I can't believe it is over:( I miss it so very much!!!!! I am thrilled though that it didnn't end with season 6. I am grateful we got to have at least half of a season 7 to wrap things up. My best episode ever choice is a tie between "White Orchids" and "Red John" I was thrilled and satisfied that Jane got to catch and kill Red John after all those years of hunting him down. With all the help Red John had with his Blake Association cohorts Patrick Jane's smarts, skills, and determination won the battle. He is amazing! I was thrilled the writers had Jane do what he said he would do all along. I was so happy Jane finally got justice for his wife and daughter. (I realize the Red John episode wasn't in season 7) Ofcourse being a Jisbon I loved seeing Jane ask her to marry him and I loved seeing them get married. The look of total joy and contentment on Jane's face the final time he picked up Lisbon right after their wedding was priceless and heartwarming! It was so great to see the original five so very happy and together for this special event. I totally agree with what Christine Orlando said for her most disappointing moment. It totally frustrated me too. I felt they had been there for each other more in the past when they weren't a couple. They at least held hands after they failed to catch Red John and their boss Luther Wainwright was killed in the "Crimson Hat" episode.I also agree with C.O's best change. I didn't hate Fisher but she just didn't fit.I agree that for season 7 the most pivotal episode was "Nothing Gold Can Stay". But as far as the whole series goes I would say the final episode of season 6 when Jane finally declared his love for Lisbon. I never liked the character of Erika Flynn and wasn't happy to hear she was back but since Lisbon got to make her get on her knees and got to arrest her again it made it worthwhile and I was glad she returned for that end result.I would put Greybar Hotel with the scene with the gun to Lisbon's head and the scene where Vega is dying in Cho's arms in "Nothing Gold Can Stay" as a tie for the most dramatic moment.Best bromance, I agree with the Abbott and Jane choice. I admit I would have never seen that coming. I think their relationship changed a little faster than was realistic and I still don't know why Abbott would trust Jane with his life but I am glad he would. The funniest moment for me was when Cho appeared at the bridal dress shop to give Lisbon his opinion of the dress she had on. What a total pleasant surprise.The happiest moment for me was when Patrick and Teresa got married. The joy on their faces, especially his was so wonderful. He has found happiness again and she has found someone to share her life with. Someone romantic, devoted, loyal, and has her back. She doesn't have to be quite so tough anymore because she has a partner to share her life with, she isn't on her own anymore. It took some time but Jane did do what he told the faux Red John he would do after Red John was dead and that was get on with his life. And I am so glad he did that with Lisbon.For me the most surprising twist was Vega's death. I did not see that coming and I was disappointed it happened. I did think that perhaps Lisbon would be pregnant just because the show was coming "full circle" and I felt Gabriel telling Jane that the number three would be significant to his getting over what was troubling him was a hint from the show. I don't believe Gabriel was psychic I just believe three is a common number like Jane said and that the writers had Gabriel say that as a hint to the audience. I wish there were new episodes to come but alas there are not. Thanks to Bruno Heller for creating this fantastic show and thanks to everyone involved in making it. It was and is my favorite show.
I have to admit, I thought S7 was one of the strongest (and best) seasons of The Mentalist yet. Though I was a bit sad it was a shortened season, I think it actually helped that they had to keep things a bit tighter rather than string viewers along. Each episode worked well in and of itself but also served for the set up for the finale of Lisbon and Jane getting married. I loved watching Lisbon and Jane grow in their relationship too. The finale was perfectly done and it came full circle with Jane regaining what he had lost in the beginning of the series, a wife and child. I hated to see it end and yes I would have liked more but to me, that's one of the earmarks of a good TV show, it leaves you wanting just a bit more. Kudos to Bruno and Simon Baker as well as the rest of the cast! You'll be missed!
