A stand-alone, free-wheeling gift of an episode this week, with no murder to solve, no procedural and very little of the CBI team other than Lisbon. The story revolves around the relationship between Patrick Jane and Lorelei Martins, the comely aide of demonic serial killer Red John. But she’s still in prison, you cry. Ah yes, but Jane has a plan to break her out, with the help of his old friend, cult leader Brett Stiles.
As Stiles, Malcolm McDowell only has about four lines to say, so he makes the most of them, before we’re swept into a kind of road movie storyline that by the end has taken us, perhaps, a big step closer to uncovering who Red John might be.
With the help of cult leader Bret Stiles (recurring guest star Malcolm McDowell), Patrick orchestrates an elaborate plan to break Lorelei Martins out of prison - making it look as if she kidnapped him before going on the run. While Lisbon and Homeland Security agent Robert Kirkland attempt to rescue Patrick, he tries to earn Lorelei's trust so that he can finally catch serial killer Red John. Starring Simon Baker, who also directs this episode.
