Revew - The Mentalist Season 2 Episode 19 Blood Money

Could the writers have made Jane any more of an annoying, conceded prick? Jane has always been, let's just say, wild in his tactics. In "Blood Money," knowing that Hightower is watching, Jane decided to be the most childish in behavior to date. It also doesn't help that everyone on the team let him run off. I don't know what the writers are playing at, but acknowledging that there is a law and courts isn't doing the show any favors, mostly because they themselves have no concept of the law nor do their characters.

By the time Jane was in court masquerading as a clown, I was done with him--and there was still over 3/4 of the episode to go. Yes, he got the smugglers. Yes, he got the hitman. Yes, he got the ADA. Yes, Hightower let him and Lisbon off. And that's the sad part about this ordeal. No matter what Jane does, no matter how disrespecting he is, no matter how many laws he breaks, Jane, the glorious hero, will be safe and loved.

Score: 7.0/10
