** Warning ** – This recap will reveal Red John’s identity.
Last week’s episode of The Mentalist left us with the CBI being shut down by the FBI, after the big revelation that its Director Gale Bertram is Red John.
This new episode, “Red John”, opens with Lisbon (Robin Tunney) and her team being warned by F.B.I. supervisory Agent Dennis Abbott (Rockmond Dunbar). They will be questioned in the following days, and they are considered suspects.
As Lisbon says to her team later, “the C.B.I. is gone now. We’re on our own.”
