The Mentalist Season 2 Episode 17:Watch The Red Box Online S02E17 – The Mentalist “The Red Box” which was directed by Chris Long and written by John Mankiewicz aired on CBS last night.
After a brief hiatus ,the series returned with a bang- we met Patrick Jane’s new boss, Special Agent Madeline Hightower and she had trouble written all over her.
Here is the synopsis of the episode:
Finally, Special Agent Madeleine Hightower has arrived. The last few weeks of The Mentalist have been without a boss, but this week the team manages to meet the new boss in “The Red Box”.
What was apparent was the fact that Lisbon was far from comfortable about the arrival of her new boss. She was particularly uneasy, but as she was not introduced until over half way through, it is hard to tell what goes on. Either way; she is not looking forward to her new employer.
Hightower quite obviously had the necessary experience, skill set and qualifications to get the job, but she also has the urge to control everything. She sets to work right away insuring that the CBI unit is run just the way she likes it. She quite obviously likes Jane, but others are certainly on thin ice and need to put the effort in to ensure they do not lose their jobs in the CBI.
There was certainly a lot of action. The new boss is clocking onto the fact that not everybody here plays by the book. In particular is Jane, who has put several murderers behind bars using the wrong methods. That being said, there is a formal case against her in court where a client’s lawyer believes their practices have been unethical.
Lisbon is also on thin ice and should be treading carefully around Hightower. Of course, it is only a matter of time before he is caught doing something that he shouldn’t have, which could lead to suspension or even a transfer.Do you like having Hightower around?
Here are few quotes from last night:
-Hightower: (to Jane) You, you’re golden.
-Cho: You think being a cop is stressful? Try being a cop in prison.
-Van Pelt: We’re on duty –
-Rigsby: I know, it would be totally wrong.
-Jane: No need to be nervous.
-Lisbon: I am not nervous.
-Jane: You are an ex-temporarily agent – no reason for butterflies.
-Lisbon: No butterflies I am fine.
-Jane: Keep telling yourself that.
