The Mentalist – Episode 3-12 Review

When Jane found the kidney and note near the end of the episode, I was thinking how cool it would be if it wasn’t  another trick. Occasionally deviating from the structure would inject uncertainty into the episode and bring modesty to Jane’s character. Unfortunately, “Bloodhounds” follows the exact pattern, and Jane uses the deception to nab the killer.

The good thing about “Bloodhounds,” though, is that the case isn’t that important, rather the battle between science and Jane’s instincts. Dr. Montague’s fun exchanges with Jane really are the highlight of the episode more than anything else.

It looks like Cho and Rigsby have solved their problems, although we’ll how they interact next week. Again, Van Pelt is relegated to simply delegating information, but Dr. Montague tells Rigsby he still loves someone else and we know who she is.

Score: 8.6/10
