The Mentalist Pink Chanel Suit S03E06 (CBS)

The Mentalist tells the story of Patrick Jane played by Simon Baker, a man specializing in studying the micro-expressions of people who became involved with trying to catch a serial killer named Red John. Red John killed his wife and daughter. Since then, Jane has been working with the stupidly named CBI, California Bureau of Investigations, a kind of state police.

Robin Tunney plays Agent Lisbon, who is in charge of the unit. Van Pelt is the new agent on the squad. Rigsby has a crush on her. The Mentalist is kind of like the TNT show Psych, but it’s not a comedy, it’s a drama. I’ve enjoyed this series because it’s light and interesting. I’ve kind of come to despise Criminal Minds.

Jane uses his semi-celebrity and his lack of protocol to solve cases quickly, cases in which the CBI wouldn’t be able to come up with answers without him. Each episode has the color red in its title. The Mentalist resembles the show Lie to Me, which premiered in 2009 on Fox. The Mentalist started on the 23rd of September 2008 on CBS.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

The victim is Austin Marr. He was killed by multiple stab wounds. He was killed in the guesthouse. There is a lot of security. The house belongs to a federal judge named Pauline Fitz-William whose mom just died. There were a lot of VIPs here for the wake.

Austin was Abby’s boyfriend. Her sister Sophie discovered her. Abby came to the house at 8:40AM. There is no sign of her leaving. Security is tight around the house. They say that no one left or no one arrived.

The judge blames Tubbs, a white supremacist she sentenced for 40 years. Lisbon has other ideas. Jane finds out that Abby and Austin had a fight. Sophie was a witness. They find Abby’s prints on the murder weapon.

Marcus is in charge of the security. Lisbon questions him. Abby used her credit card in San Francisco. Van Pelt and Lisbon chase up that lead. They find Daniela. They find Jane drinking tea in there as well. Daniela is Abby’s best friend. She used Abby’s credit card. She says that Abby loaned her the card 3 days ago.

Sophie comes in with a threatening message from someone saying that this is what they get for messing with Tubbs. Tubbs says that there is an Aryan solider in the compound who did the job. Tubbs gives up Howard Dressler. He says that he’s the inside man.

Jane does some snooping and tries to take off with a rug. He says that he tried to see if someone could escape off the compound with a substitute corpse. The judge wants Jane off the case. Jane says that the judge is still a suspect.

Van Pelt found Howard Dressler. Rigsby questions Dressler. He says that he supplied drugs to Abby.

Jane thinks that Abby’s body is on the property. The body is in the coffin of the grandmother. That’s what he suspects, but he’s wrong. They open it up and find the grandmother.

Jane convinces Hightower and Lisbon to give him another shot at finding the killer. They have a stakeout and find Ed, the family doctor, dragging a body out of the compound.

He hid Abby’s body because he was giving Abby drugs. Abby ODed. Austin came back and saw what happened. He was going to go to the cops.

Hightower wants Jane to apologize, but he won’t. The judge came with her and she heard the way that Jane talked about her. She agreed that she was like that, but then she says a few things about Jane. His attitude did reveal the killer, and for that, she thanks Jane. Jane says that he’s sorry to her back.
