The Mentalist "Little Red Corvette" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

The end of this episode made me want to cheer! I was so happy for Lisbon, but I'll get to that in a second.

Two months ago. We see this kid playing in an old warehouse and then two guys come in with this other guy and Volker! The kid hides and then watches (poor kid) these two guys kill this one guy and Volker doesn't do a thing! I hate this guy! But then the two bad guys hear the kid and one tells the other to kill him, but he won't and ends up kidnapping the kid and giving him to a friend. 

Now we switch to the present time and Lisbon has found the dead body and knows that he worked for Volker. So, now she has another murder to pin on this guy, if she can do it. 

She decides to see Volker without Patrick! I don't think that's a wise choice, but nothing bad happens, he's just a total jerk.

Patrick believes the kid is key to the case, but Lisbon is so wrapped in catching Volker, she doesn't seem to think so and gives that part to Patrick. So, Patrick goes to see Marvin's (the kid who is missing) mom after they find out who the kid was. 

Patrick is telling Lisbon how to get stuff for the Volker case, even if it means doing something a little bad. She does get it, his way, but isn't too happy about having to go about that way.

Anybody else thought it was really strange that Annabelle was the only person working with Volker that got to leave alive? I thought that was strange. She was a new witness, but she lied to them because Volker had gotten to her.

Guess who else is working for Volker? Brenda! Wasn't expecting that. Who isn't working for him?

They finally find out where the kid is at, but Volker did, too. Like a few minutes before they did. So, they go to the zoo where both the kid and Volker are at and they find both of them in time before Volker has a chance to kill the kid! Lisbon finally arrests him, too! I was just soooooo happy that she finally caught this jerk.

Marvin got to go home. Him thinking his mom was dead and his mom thinking he was dead. Patrick got to bring him home. So sweet.

And hopefully this is the last time we are from Volker.
