Fall Pilot Season: The Mentalist
At the police station, Price shows up with his lawyer to spring Tag, and gets really pissy about it... until Cho tells him that Tag was "banging [Allison] like a big bass drum." Granted, Price was being a dick about it, but Cho's ability to say the absolute wrong thing continues to astound me. Price is stunned, and is in the process of taking his high-priced attorney and going home when Rigsby decides to walk Tag down that same stretch of hallway. The Brothers McMulligan get in a screaming match, and it starts to look like neither one had any reason to want Allison dead.
Dr. Wagner's office. Wagner writes Jane a scrip for sleeping pills, but knows that everything he was just told was a lie. Jane admits it, saying that the truth is his (or rather, "mine," which is also what he said about Redjohn to Lisbon). As they leave the empty office, Jane tells him that they found out Tannen definitely kept a diary, and that he'll send the detectives back to do a more thorough search of the office in the morning. Then he hugs Wagner and exits into the night. A few minutes later, Wagner is on his knees in Tannen's ransacked office, digging through filing cabinets, and Jane waltzes back in. Turns out he palmed the card key from Wagner, although he tells Wagner the door was unlocked and he forgot his phone and... what's going on here? Wagner admits to playing detective, trying to find the diary, and Jane offers to help. He does a phony "getting a psychic fix" thing, wandering the room until he ends up on his back in front of a bookcase, reaching underneath and pulling out the red diary -- sorry, DIARY!!!! -- that he was filling in the other night! A-ha-ha! Another clever ruse!
Jane flips through it, but as Wagner approaches he snaps it shut and thanks him, heading for the exit. Wagner runs after him in a panic, reminding him he forgot his phone. They both enter Wagner's office, and Jane recovers his phone from the couch cushions as Wagner recovers a pistol from his desk and demands the diary. Jane hands it over, and Ivanek proves why he's an Emmy winner as he slowly realizes he's been had. Without admitting to anything, he asks what led Jane to him. Jane thought it was odd that Wagner didn't know who Redjohn was when he has a book on his shelf with an entire chapter on the killer. As the Randolph family physician (and psychotherapist, apparently), Wagner could get one of Tag's hairs, and as a doctor, he could hack up someone in cold blood. Yikes. That's a pretty damning generalization about doctors, although Wagner seems to have several job descriptions, so maybe "butcher" is one of them.
