Review

Brace yourselves, it’s a Red John episode. The serial killer’s ex-mistress Lorelei Martins is on the loose again and the pre-title sequence features her torturing and killing a woman she believes helped kill her sister. So don’t tune in expecting light banter between Lisbon and Jane, some subliminal flirting, a few smart-aleck remarks to relatives: we’re on the dark side.

Jane has that grim look in his eye he gets when he’s on the trail of his nemesis – all haunted and purposeful. It makes for several good scenes between him and Lisbon, revolving around how much the two of them can trust each other when it really comes down to it. They’re brilliant together, but doomed: it’s quite sad.

Summary

Lorelei Martins returns to avenge the death of her sister, convinced she has identified at least one of those responsible. She lies in wait at the home of a staff member of a shelter for battered women, eventually handcuffing her victim to a table and dispensing some savage justice. Thanks to the presence of a security camera, the team is soon after her, while Jane tries to exploit the situation to catch a bigger fish - Red John.
