At the beginning of the episode, he's in jail because Agent Abbott didn't agree to his terms so he preferred detention than working with the FBI - without Lisbon and his couch, since he got his tea. Agent Fisher asks Lisbon for advice on how managing Jane. Maybe she understood that Jane only works with Lisbon. She goes to visit Jane in his jail and, for whatever reasons, he's convinced to join the FBI investigation. Lisbon might like her job as sceriff but the truth is she misses her old employment. I really enjoyed the reunion between Jane and Lisbon with Cho. The good old Ice Man has never been so happy to see his former co-workers.
I think Fisher thinks she can have everything under control, but when Cho corrects her because she made a mistake during the investigation and let Jane escape from that roof, she smirks and take a step back. I'd like to see more scenes between those two in the future.
The episode also see the introduction of a new character - and I hope he will become a regular very soon - who is supposed to be a replacement of Wayne Rigsby. Wiley, the geek blonde guy who tracks down Jane in New York, so the FBI can reach him. Cho recognizes his skills, and Abbott promuoves him with a new desk next to Cho, who's not very open at jokes. The "Wiley Coyote" thing was absolutely amusing!
If you thought Red John was over, you're wrong. It seems that Jane has been plaining all long to get his terms accepted. Even writing a possible list with names of the poeple belonging to the Blake Association. (remember when Van Pelt decoded that list on her computer? Anyway, am I the only one who didn't miss Rigsby and Van Pelt in this episode?)
The ending scene was simply perfect. In the beginning of the episode, Lisbon noticed Jane didn't wear any socks, so what surprise did she give him? Besides her new job in the FBI - Jane's threats for Abbott worked - she bought him a pair of socks! He couldn't be more surprised than a child.
Are you enjoying The Mentalist 2.0? What do you think about Kim Fisher? Is she interested in Jane? What about Jane and Lisbon's future? Do you miss Rigsby and Van Pelt?
