Without the long story arc of Patrick Jane’s pursuit of Red John, this show would be a lightweight procedural about a smirking pseudo-cop who drinks tea and reads people like books. But it isn’t, because always in the background is the fact that Red John murdered Jane’s wife and child, which adds darker elements, explains Jane’s tendency to callousness and allows Simon Baker to showcase the steelier side to his acting.
Up until now RJ has always been a hidden figure, but tonight, in the second part of the season finale, Jane is closing in on him. First he must unmask the mole within CBI, who could be one of five people: “Don’t worry, I have a brilliant plan,” purrs Jane. Long-term fans should prepare for a shocking, game-changing climax over a cup of lapsang souchong.
In the conclusion of the two-part series finale, Hightower wants to hand herself in, knowing she will be found innocent of Todd Johnson's murder, but Jane dissuades her, not wanting to risk scaring Red John underground. The consultant manages to inform all four suspects of her location and awaits the arrival of the accomplice, who he will use to track down the serial killer - only for Lisbon to get injured in the ploy. Crime drama, starring Simon Baker and Aunjanue Ellis.
