The Mentalist “Byzantium” Review (Season 7 Episode 11)

The Mentalist Byzantium Season 7 Episode 11 13

This episode of The Mentalist “Byzantium” definitely reminded me a bit of Red John and since we’re a week away from the end, I’m starting to freak out a bit. In my review, I discuss the Jisbon turmoil, a wink back at Red John and more.

Of course, I would love to hear your thoughts on the episode as well, so make sure to leave a comment below or on YouTube.

The Mentalist Season 7 episode 11 “Byzantium” airs Wednesday, Feb. 11th (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. In tonight’s episode, a young man claiming to have psychic powers offers his help to the FBI in solving a pair of murders, but when he leads them to additional victims, Jane and the team begin to suspect that he is in fact the killer they’re hunting.

Show Summary: THE MENTALIST stars Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor-sharp skills of observation. Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned.

His last act in playing a psychic was to challenge the serial killer Red John on television. The killer then murdered Jane’s wife and daughter and now Jane longs for revenge, having narrowed down Red John’s identity to seven possible suspects. Jane’s role in cracking a series of tough, high-profile cases is greatly valued by his fellow agents; however, no-nonsense Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon alternates between reluctantly acknowledging Jane’s usefulness and blasting him for his theatrics, narcissism and dangerous lack of boundaries. Lisbon’s team includes agents Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby and Grace Van Pelt, who all think Jane’s a loose cannon but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.
