Review - The Mentalist Season 2 Episode 5 Red Scare

The Mentalist never has amazing crimes or story arcs, but the acting headed by Simon Baker is what makes the show so good. If not for Simon Baker and his pure charisma, I'm not sure The Mentalist would have lasted this long.

'Red Scare' was fairly standard crime-wise with probably the most predictable culprit this season. The instant I saw the nephew, I knew it was going to be him. He didn't talk much and the other suspects were too obvious.

The Halloween theme fit well with the haunted house, secret passage, treasure, and ghosts as a backdrop for a heinous crime. Rigsby and Van Pelt finally got together which is a relief since Rigsby is kind of annoying at times.

Score: 9.2/10
