Revenge is an act of passion; vengeance of justice. Injuries are revenged; crimes are avenged. – Samuel Johnson
I’m a fan of the show The Mentalist. If you haven’t seen it, the basic premise is this: A fake psychic, whose family was brutally murdered by a serial killer, works with law enforcement to find said killer, using his skills of deduction to solve other crimes along the way.
Spoilers ahead, in case you are sensitive to that kind of thing. But I want to talk about story and the proper set up, so I hope you’ll join me.
