The Mentalist "Behind The Red Curtain" Episode Review

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

Person just fell onto a car and died right in front of a group of people waiting to get into see a performance! There was also a person in the car! How scary is that? Her name was Sharon and the guy that was in the car is ok.

Now the team tries to figure out who killed her. Not much of an episode until the very end when we learn something kind of important about Red John, I think, anyways.

One important thing though, Grace is back! Wasn't expecting her to come back! But I'm glad she is. I think Rigsby and Grace still like each other, but not sure if anything will happen or not.

Forgot to say that Patrick wasn't at the crime scene right away because he was at the hospital waiting to see if the guy that Lorelie shot wakes up. I didn't think he lived through that, but guess he did! Patrick bribes the nurse at the station to be let in and they also have a meeting and he asks her about stuff. She doesn't trust the agents that are watching the guy. I think this is a big clue. She said like they aren't what they seem (the agents).

The star of the show turned out to be Sharon's real mom! I don't think that's why Sharon got the role in the first place, because I don't think she knew right away. I can't remember. They did find out before she died, though.

LaRoch is back. :( I do not trust him, but he was actually a little likeable in this episode. Patrick used him to catch the killer. I don't remember how it all fell into place, but I do know that the producer created somebody to get credit for the show (or something, didn't quite follow that) and Sharon found out and wasn't gonna keep it a secret, so he killed her!

Now comes the really important part. The Homeland Security guy (I can't remember his name) comes in right when Jason starts to wake up and asks him if he recognizes him. Jason says no, but the Homeland Security guy still kills Jason! But why would he ask Jason if he knew who he was? My theory? Is that the Homeland Security guy is Red John! Why else would he ask that? Because Jason is the only one still alive (then) who knew who Red John was. I think Patrick didn't believe the Homeland Security guy when he came out and told him that Jason died. I don't know why, though.
