For those of you who love color-coordinated episodes of “The Mentalist,” stop and think about this for a minute. The show’s first new episode in over a month Sunday night is entitled “Black Helicopters,” and following that, we have another installment called “Grey Water.”
So moving into the third episode back on March 23, it only seems appropriate that we would move up to the next progression on the brightness scale with “White As the Drive Show.” We know that the writers love doing their color titles and have since the days of the original Red John case, but there is something more here in that these episodes are all tied together thanks to a larger story arc: An attempt by Jane to figure out just what is happening to some of the former members of the CBI. If you want to find out some more information on this subject, we suggest just taking a look at the full synopsis below (with a warning for some plot spoilers).
“Grace is kidnapped by the killer who has been hunting former CBI members, but when the prime suspect appears to have an airtight alibi, Jane must rely on all his skills to locate her before time runs out.”
So basically, what you get out of this is that we are set to see the Van Pelt character as a kidnapping victim on this episode. Should you really be that surprised? We don’t think so, largely because you had to figure that at some point, there was going to be someone who ended up falling victim to some of this.
