Entwife,Huisclothes,Rationalgal,TB and Watcher-not only did I really enjoy this episode but I enjoyed all your comments as well! I had lot of fun! I'm looking foward to the next episode and looking foward to your comments! Great stuff!

You know what! The last episode should be the movie! Then the writer's can really express Jane and Lisbon's relationship on a rated R level. Jane could do all kinds of nasty stuff to Red John and Lisbon!

Huisclothes & Entwife if you're getting the vapors you might be moving away from the TV ratings portion of the Mentalist! I, for one, am going to shoot Bruno Heller an e-mail and suggest that Simon Baker film a episode at my house! I'll call the episode Red Dreams!

And about Volker. He is a very wound up psychopath. The fact that he feels compelled to confront a ranking agent of the CBI tells me he is losing it fast. Devolving as the shows say. Decompensating as the psychiatrists say. Very dangerous, but telegraphing himself all the way. Just showing up there is a threat, given what everybody knows about the case. If anything happens to Lisbon, Volker's the first guy they grab. But he can't stop himself.

re: the hand holding at the end of crimson hat. some of these memorable physical moments are ad-libs by the actors. the script may have said "he takes her hand" but the way he slid his hand along her arm to get there? bet that was simon and robin.
i haven't loved a show the way i love this show, ever. who could replace patrick jane? so i will never get over it if the series leaves me with the female version of blue-b-lls.
i want things to go way beyond the kiss. at least, a push-her-against-the wall and a rip-off-his shirt scene. it's got to be a cathartic moment. let them go out with a bang. (ok, i'll stop.)

hi entwife. yeah, the series hasn't really used that style of transition with stylized tight shots. simon is the only director except for david nutter (the pilot) who really designs every shot. so it wouldn't stand out like a wrong note as in this averagely shot and directed episode. i think the performances were pretty buck-eye. feels like the director made everyone play it big, especially simon. i think the scene that best showed why simon gets the big bucks was the chess scene. the way he sat down and softly, almost overlapping walt's line said "what did you do with the wallet?" he used the same "almost interrupting" delivery when christian meets andie in devil wears prada.

Haha, great scene, especially et Voila! Perfect. Except, I'm going to have to see that kiss . . . ;-)

Ok, here it is! It's the end of the series, they show the squad rm. Everyone is there except Jane and Lisbon. No one says a word. Camera fades and then cuts to Lisbon's apartment. Lisbon is pouring up two glasses of champagne. The camera follows Lisbon up the stairs and as she breaks the door way entry to her bedroom and looks in, you hear Jane's final last words..............AND VOILA! Camera's then fade to black
