The Mentalist Review: "Red Hot"
I never saw the end of “Red Hot” coming. I really thought that Lisbon would continue to blow off Walter. He may be rich, handsome, and charming, but as Lisbon pointed out, he is also egotistical, arrogant, and entitled.
I liked that Walter seemed really taken aback when he found the bullet hole on Lisbon’s shirt and the reality set in for him that someone could get hurt. I also enjoyed their flirty banter throughout the episode. And, as much as the Jane/Lisbon fans may disagree with me, I'm glad that Lisbon and Walter ended up together.
Lisbon deserves a little fun and Walter seems like the man to give that to her. Do I think this is a long-term relationship? Probably not. But I also don’t think Jane is anywhere near ready for a relationship with anyone, even Lisbon.
Are they all knife-wielding wackos? In this one episode, Lisbon was nearly blown up, nearly shot, and nearly stabbed. Perhaps a one-night stand might be safer.
Jane was equally fun throughout the hour. Walter and him are both charming, intelligent men and I like the way they play off one another. Did anyone else chuckle when Jane dove behind the hedge when the bullets started flying? Not that I blame him, but it just looked comical.
Glamping? Seriously?!? Is this a real term? According to Van Pelt, glamping means glamorous camping. I’ll have to take her word for it.
Overall, I enjoyed this episode of The Mentalist and I think this season has been much better than the previous one so far. Agree? Disagree? Sound off now.
