BIG SPOILER FOR SEASON 3!!!


Todd Johnson is burned alive in an interrogation room by the mole in the CBI after Red John realizes Todd knows too much about him. It comes out of nowhere but is shown from a distance and only for a couple seconds. Just know that when Patrick walks to the interrogation room to speak with Todd, as he opens the door, he sees Todd running around on fire. He survives the incident and is later visited in the hospital by Patrick. Todd, while in a full body cast, suddenly wakes up and turns towards Patrick, says a few important words and then his heart stops. Definitely sent chills down my back

A few times. A character is handcuffed to a pole and repeatedly tazed. Another character is tied to a chair and beaten for information. Another character is tied to a chair and then his finger is cut off. It cuts away before the actual cut is shown.

A character is ill and only has a month left to live. They ask Patrick Jane to sit there while they die by suicide (pills) so that an autopsy isn't done. Very powerful scene, I suggest skipping the end scene after Rigsby speaks to Van Pelt.
