Review - The Mentalist Season 2 Episode 9 A Price Above Rubies

I'm hoping next week's episode will be better, because I was not impressed at all. Given that it will be a flashback episode that  finally reveals Jane's past, I think it will deliver

The story was very simple and predictable. When the random demand was given to George Doverton, I knew it was Jane up to his tricks again. There is a predictability to the show that one can expect anything out of the ordinary to be attributed to Jane. He's always in control, so Jane is usually intimately involved with whatever goes on in the end to capture the criminal and we can expect him to be part of the deception.

I'm not sure if the writers were trying to make Jane extra funny, because it seemed him went beyond his usual obnoxiousness and arrogance, and I was kind of annoyed at him by the end of the episode. Luckily, Simon Baker like Hugh Laurie to make an unlikable character likable.

Rigsby and Van Pelt have a huge problem that will probably drag out through the course of the season. Jane already knows about their relationship, and now Van Pelt wants to talk about their future since Bureau regulations is explicitly against relationships between agents. Rigsby dodges the question, so there is still lots of be resolved.

Score: 8.5/10
