The Mentalist Season 3 Episode 1: Watch Season 3 Premiere 2010 Online S03E01 – The Mentalist Season 3 Episode 1 called “Red Sky at Night” which was directed by Chris Long and directed by Bruno Heller aired on Thursday, September 23 at 10pm on CBS.
The new episode of The Mentalist, “Red Sky at Night,” is one of the best that the series has seen since it started. The CBI is investigating the kidnapping of a well-known lawyer and a state house lobbyist. The man in charge says in the beginning of the episode that he would like Jane on the case, but that is not sure of his future with the unit after his squabble with Red John that resulted in his girlfriend eventually being kidnapped.
The episode does not resolve the cliffhanger that we were left with at the end of last season. The installement is heavy on self-reflection, as the characters take a look at themselves and the road that got them to where they are in the story.
As always, the show shines in the scenes where we get to see Jane interacting with her co-workers. The case in the episode is not really all that interesting, and is more there so we can pass the time while watching our characters develop. The Mentalist is known for its mind games, and it cuts right to the chase, even in the first episode of the season.
You would think that because the finale of last season that left us with so many cliffhangers being titled “Red Sky in the Morning,” that this would be the other bookend to that storyline. That does not appear to be true, and there really are no advancements of that plot line in the premiere episode of this season.
