On tonight’s “The Mentalist” season 6, episode 8: “Red John,” Patrick Jane finally comes face-to-face with Red John, the serial killer he’s tracked since the madman murdered his wife and daughter. For 10 years, Jane has doggedly hunted his nemesis in his search for justice.
The series revolves around a team of the Californian Bureau of Investigation led by haughty agent Lisbon. However, her mediocre intelligence and methods by the book are no match for ‘mentalist’ Patrick Jane. Formally, the ex-medium-hustler is just a police consultant. In fact, the detectives soon learn to look to him for ever brilliant and surprising observations, deductions, ploys and traps. No criminal ever outsmarts Jane – except perhaps Red John, who unwillingly motivated Patrick to start fighting crime.
“The Mentalist” season 6, episode 8: “Red John,” airs Sunday, Nov. 24, at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS. Spoiler video below:
