The Mentalist season finale gave us some serious closure of Red John, with twists, turns, and ends I did not see coming. I spent most of the episode wondering how the title "Strawberries & Cream" come in. When he finally did, everything became clear.
But first things first. The episode began with a bang, literally as an innocent man is blown by a bomb vest. It was a chilling scene that we witnessed the horror of that countenance Dinkle officers approached. He knew he would not survive.
Jane care about the safety of Lisbon and will join the school was abandoned sweet. Not normally see this kind of concern for him. And adjust the closure of the school at night was very scary as the sound echoed in the halls of Lisbon, but did not answer the call from Jane. However, I did not expect to find with a bomb strapped to his chest.
I liked the Catholicism of Lisbon was brought into play as she whispered Hail Mary as Patrick drove. She was really scared and it was nice to see Jane take control at times to let him know she was not alone.
I was wondering if La Roche was our mole when he shot Gupta. How do you think the man's neck, and this gun would he? I guess we'll never know. The scene was left ambiguous enough for us to question both ways.
And what the hell is this damn tupperware container, La Roche is sure he is ready to deliver his suspect list Jane? How could it be bad? If I was Jane I could break again just to see the curiosity and relief.
The list of suspects was not a surprise. I was wondering if someone had pulled our team of CHF, but did not. The whole different pieces was a beautiful piece of suspense, but never doubted that O'Loughlin. I thought it would be a villain in the final or end of the dead. It turned out at a time.
Poor Grace. Confusion and horror crossed his face in his fiance told him to forgive and had grown very fond of him. Ouch. I can only imagine how it will affect that went into the next season. He will send weapons Rigsby or left closed at all romantic relationships after blatantly betrayed by someone he loved.
I could not believe O'Loughlin pulled the medallion from his neck, just before his death. It was cold. And what is worse is that Craig's death, she will never get any answers to why he has targeted.
The final confrontation between Jane and Red John was a good game. Jane has finally met the devil face to face and no horn. I was surprised when I saw Bradley Whitford in the role, but so rewarding. Red John was not like the big bad wolf. He was a guy who could be your neighbor and it was not what made him so scared. That evil can seem so harmless.
Ultimately, had the same thoughts as Jane. Was it really John Red? But when Jane said her daughter was "Strawberries and cream, probably his shampoo, and say the smell is a powerful trigger for memories. You can see these memories play on words of Jane. This was the man, the monster who brutally murdered his family.
John looked like Red's face crumble Jane's sorrow and sadness, he almost smiled when he turned to walk away. But not so fast. With a "please wait" Red John Jane looked into his eyes one last time before he shot him three times with the gun hidden in his pocket. Then he sat down quietly at his table and finished his tea. Vengeance delivered.
Patrick Jane did exactly what he said he would always do, and I for one was glad to see him.
