After catching Vega in a lie, Cho declares that in order to work together, he needs to be able to trust her with his life; his statement is ironic, and somewhat hypocritical, since as an indirect result of Cho's addiction to painkillers after getting injured at work, Rigsby nearly lost his life in season four's "The Mentalist: Ruddy Cheeks (2012)".
