Wylie & Cho’s scene was brilliant and by far my favourite. “Is this about something shady for Jane?” Just gets right to the point and is Totally into it!
Lisbon was totally Badass. I loved the scenes of her at the club. Ah the take charge feministesque Lisbon we know and love.
I liked Jane’s multiple not at all subtle comments to Lisbon throughout the episode. I think he’s trying to be both supportive as her friend, but also showing her what he could offer her as a romantic partner.
As painful as the end part of this episode was to watch I really like the way that the Jane - Lisbon - Pike story line is playing out. I really hope it gets the fantastic, well thought out conclusion it, the show, and the fans deserve.
I loved tonight’s episode of The Mentalist! I wasn’t sure if I would like the post-CBI reboot, but ever since they finished doing the set up they have been turning out consistently good episodes. I really like where things are going and how they are having each of the characters’ story lines play out.
This episode gave us a lot more depth from Abbott which I thought was great. We get to see that there’s more to him than just being the tough FBI guy and that he does have a heart and is big on intuition in a similar way to how Jane is.
This one had another example of a long con kind of situation which was a refreshing take on the typical Mentalist case set up.
I both liked and hated Fisher during this episode, but I think I’m supposed to. For me she’s neither totally likeable nor totally awful. She’s somewhere in the middle.
Cho was classic Cho as always. His, “Because my head would explode” comment was one of my favourites for this episode.
Wylie was entertaining and I like that he’s slowly getting to play bigger parts in each case in his own unique geekish and lovable way.
Last, but certainly not least: Jane and Lisbon. Their scenes together in Silver Wings of Time were perfect and heartbreaking all at the same time. It’s clear that Jane loves her and wishes she was going out on dates with him instead and it’s also clear that Lisbon desperately wants him to say something, but he won’t at least not yet. This episode also added on to a theory I’ve held for a while about the way Lisbon talks about and to Jane and the phrases she uses.
I’ve always thought that Lisbon saying “He closes cases” was her way of saying “I love you” sometimes subconsciously and sometimes not. But I think Lisbon saying “Goodnight Jane” this last few episodes, the way she’s said it, what’s been talked about directly before, is her way of saying to Jane, “Stop me” and “Say something”. They both want the same thing, but after all the times he’s hurt her and run out on her she’s too scared to make the first move because she’s worried he’ll reject her, or pull away, or run off. All of which will continue to come out over the following episodes before finally coming to the perfect conclusion we’ve all waited so long for. At least that’s what I hope will happen.
This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!
Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.
All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.
Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

That just about sums it up.
