The Mentalist Review: "Redline"
It looks like the honeymoon phase is over for Rigsby and Van Pelt.
In "Redline," we got to see the first fight ever between these two lovebirds. I really like them as a couple, but last night, Rigsby was a complete butt-hole to Van Pelt.
First, he tells her that he has seniority and if anyone is to leave the team, it would be her - then, he goes in to say marriage is out of the question. Way to kick a girl when she is down!
And as we all predicted - by the end of the episode, Lisbon showed her softer side by telling them she does not know anything about their relationship, so there is nothing for her to report.
My favorite part of the episode was having Jane show Walter his abilities. How cool was the scene with Jane driving blindfold only to know what he was doing by Walter's reactions? Jane is a man of many talents. Who knew one of his talents had to do with crashing the car? We just figured it was an accident.
We really enjoyed having Walter on the show. He added a level of excitement by being so rich and careless. It seemed as though Jane liked having him around as well. Could he be a new love interest for Lisbon?
We don't think so! Jane was obviously a little jealous with Walter's ability to express his interest in Lisbon. We know these two have for a long time been keeping their feelings under wraps.
It was so nice to see some romantic connection when Jane borrows Walter's car to take Lisbon to dinner. Very nice. And it definitely had us thinking what's to come with these two!We can't wait to see Jane in a steamy love scene!
Here is a couple of our favorite The Mentalist quotes from last night:
Jane: Oh stop, self pity will kill you - take it from someone who knows. | permalink
Lisbon: How many wives have you had?
Walter: Enough to know better. | permalink
Jane: When sharks stop swimming they drowned, right? | permalink
