Tonight’s episode of The Mentalist is titled “Red Rover, Red Rover” Season 4 Episode 23 and airs Thursday May 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Episode Synopsis: On the eighth anniversary of his wife and daughter’s death, Jane receives a message from Red John, causing Jane to lose focus on his current case and put the investigation and his career at the CBI in jeopardy, on THE MENTALIST on Thursday, May 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks,” “How I Met Your Mother”) guest stars as Dennis Victor, the owner of a brokerage firm where the CBI’s latest victim was an employee.
THE MENTALIST stars Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor-sharp skills of observation. Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned.
Jane’s role in cracking a series of tough, high-profile cases is greatly valued by his fellow agents; however, no-nonsense Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon alternates between reluctantly acknowledging Jane’s usefulness and blasting him for his theatrics, narcissism and dangerous lack of boundaries. Lisbon’s team includes agents Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby and Grace Van Pelt, who all think Jane’s a loose cannon but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.
