When we look at tonight’s new episode of “The Mentalist,” there is really only one way in which we view it: Something that started out for us to be pretty darn entertaining, but something that also did not really pop for us until the closing seconds. The CBI story is really what is the most intriguing part of this right now, since it makes you wonder whether or not there are remnants to the Red John case, even if the villain himself is dead. It’s also interesting that all of this is happening not that long after Patrick Jane is back in America.
Unfortunately, the promo below for next week’s “Grey Water” really does not allow for many opportunities to discuss any of that. Instead, what we have here is mostly just a tale about oil, Simon Baker’s character trying to instruct others to “trust their instincts” a la Peppy from “Star Fox 64,” and a case that feels on the surface to be standalone.
Luckily, the official synopsis is going to get you a little more insight when it comes to everything involved in this story:
“Jane and Fischer investigate a murder at an oil fracking site, while Rigsby and Van Pelt travel to Austin to help investigate suspects in the string of attacks on former CBI team members.”
We sound a little like a broken record on the subject (we’re well aware), but hopefully this will also be a story that gives us just a little more insight on Jane and Lisbon. When we don’t know what the future holds for characters, we tend to get a little anxious.
