Remember the finale of the last season? When we last saw Patrick Jane, he shot serial killer Red John at close range in the café, then calmly returned to his cup of tea. Job done.
Meanwhile, Grace van Pelt had to kill her fiancé, the FBI agent who, it turned out, had been the mole helping Red John keep one step ahead. It was a brilliant climax to three series’ worth of suspense, but you couldn’t help wondering what the show would do without its main plot engine. Out of these corners, the series four opener skilfully manoeuvres itself. It’s still a cute mixture of the featherweight and the profound — and still a great watch.
Jane is taken into custody for fatally shooting the man he believed to be serial killer Red John, but bluffs his way out of jail and tries to exonerate himself. He begins by visiting his victim's widow - and learns her house contains not only a secret room, but also a reluctant guest. Starring Simon Baker.
