The Mentalist - Episode 6.02 "Black-Winged Redbird" - Review

NOTE: Please be advised that English is not my first language.

Is Teresa Lisbon dead or alive? Of course she's alive, but she's still shocked. Remember when Patrick Jane told he wasn't freaking out? Well, that time has gone. Probably one of the most touching scenes of the episode was watching Jane asking for water and then coming to clean Lisbon's face from that blood smile.
I loved Lisbon's nightmare. According to me, it was so telling, and made me change my mind again about Red John.
Lisbon dreams about coming back in the CBI. As she steps into, she sees Gale Bertram painting Red John's smile on a window of the bureau. She's horrified by Reed Smith who just killed Grace Van Pelt, Wayne Rigsby, Kimball Cho and Patrick Jane. Then, Raymond Haffner turns to her saying "I'm sorry" and hit her...

Lisbon wakes up, she's lying in a bed at the hospital, but there's Jane comforting her, reassuring she's safe. That was a tender moment I liked between Jane and Lisbon. She's hardly breathing but he's sitting very close to her, and gentle touches her hair to make sure she's ok.
Another story is Haffner. When he comes to visit Teresa, you can see she's nervous and she doesn't know how to act. What gave me goosebumps was his behaviour towards her when he said "I like you Teresa, I really do. And one of those days, you and me... we'll have a time."
In my opinione, I've always thought that Ray had a crush on Teresa and I won't be surprised of he's Red John at the end... yes, since Partridge is dead, my bet is on Haffner. Still, another question is open: why didn't Red John end his work with Lisbon and let her alive?

Another scene I liked was Jane in the same office with Bertram, Sceriff McAllister and Reed. It must have been hard for him to be surrounded by a possible Red John. The three of them look suspicious, and you can smell the tension in there.
Sophie Miller. Patrick Jane's former psychiatric is dead ("Diner's in the oven"), but she left with an important clue. She personally recorded her teraphy session with a man, J. Roth. As Jane and Liston listen to the record, it becomes clear to me that Red John probably must be more than one.
Also: who is Carmen Lee? In the episode, she's the person the nurse mistakenly walks in when she enters in Lisbon's room. As fans, you can recall that name is not new.

The murder case was obviously secondary to the big hunt for Red John. It was interesting to investigate on why a man had committed suicided in the very first scene of the episode. Drones, explosions and a pleasant plot that, in some ways, have relieved Red John's storyline.

Who do you think is Red John? Why didn't he killed Lisbon?

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.
