The Mentalist Episode 20-3 Review: Redacted

“Redacted” has a standard crime with a couple suspects and the murderer is eventually caught. All of this is fine. But the subplot, Jane trying to free the burglar he hired to steal Laroche’s suspect list, was far too silly. Somehow, in the middle of the case, Jane runs around the office, talking to the thief and hoodwinking the guy standing guard, without being notice by anyone, not Lisbon, not Laroche.  Jane isn’t even on top of things and has no good plan to break the guy out, which made him look really foolish. I did like, however, Jane coming clean to Lisbon about Hightower, and shows the natural progression of their relationship to the point where Jane, a secretive person, can share innermost secrets about the Red John investigation to her.

Score: 8.6/10
