The discovery of a body in a burnt-out car this week lead the team to a number of suspects, a drag queen cabaret and the story of a desperately unhappy young man, looking for a way out. For a non-Red John episode, I thought it was played much more seriously than most Mentalist mysteries (even with the drag queens) and while the message was a bit heavy-handed in its delivery, the story was poignant and well-plotted, and the final scene moving. I enjoyed it a lot. Well, most of it. Summer can just naff off, obviously.
