The Mentalist

The Mentalist

The Mentalist follows Patrick Jane (Simon Baker), a consultant for the police who aids the California Bureau of Investigation in solving intriguing cases. Working with Patrick are leading agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney), agents Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti), Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) and Kimball Cho (Tim Kang).

As the agents investigate a vast variety of crimes, Patrick adds to each investigation by incoporating elements of his experience as a mentalist. By watching human reactions and using hypnosis and autosuggestion, Patrick is able to set traps where the suspects and witnesses reveal the truth behind the case.

With his hazy past pretending to be a psychic, he had a complete deflection in his life when a serial killer decides to show where he would not get into, and it ends up bringing pain and regret to his life with his wife's and daughter’s death.Therefore, Patrick decides to use his knowledge and talents definitively to arrest all those that use California as playground.

The man tries to stop them from stealing the painting that's too valuable but he's shot. Sylvia holds John as the robbers drive off... read more.

6x15: White As The Driven Snow recap: Rigsby goes back into the bar to have a drink with Patrick and Cho. Patrick goes back to a pool game while Cho and Rigsby leave to get some food. Cho asks if Rigsby and Grace want to join the FBI because they have an open offer. Back at the hotel, Cho points out that Rigsby's room door is open. They head in and find that Grace isn't there... read more.

6x14: Grey Water recap: Rigsby calls Lisbon, but she doesn't have much information on LaRoche's murderer. He hangs up and Grace calls him over to hold their baby. Rigsby hears a noise in the next room and sees a man with a shotgun. The man fires as Rigsby runs with the baby to hide in the pantry. Grace stops the man but he escapes out the window. All three of them are glad they're unhurt... read more.

6x13: Black Helicopters recap: A young man on a tractor notices vehicles with flashing lights coming his way and runs to ring a bell. Everyone at the farm runs to hide inside. Men grab guns and meet the FBI agents at the gate. Dennis Abbott asks to speak with the person in charge and a pickup truck pulls up on the farm side. Patrick Jane gets out of the truck and tells everyone to relax... read more.

6x12: Golden Hammer recap: In Houston, Texas, a crazed driver hits multiple cars. He gets out wearing only underwear and stumbles around yelling. He runs down the road and arrives at an office building. A security guard yells out after him and calls him Mr. Whitaker. Kim Fischer debriefs the team while they view the security footage of Charles Whitaker. His last words were "Stop, listen. Help me." He died because his heart stopped due to an overdose of prescription and illegal drugs. There is no history of drug use and it looks more likely to be a murder than a suicide. Kim is called out of the room to talk to another FBI agent. Patrick reads their lips and explains to Lisbon that the man doesn't think Patrick has adequate security clearance to work the case. The man, supervising agent Daniels, enters and asks Patrick to leave. Patrick gets up and says he understands if they don't want him knowing that Whitaker worked for the Pentagon and that may be why he was murdered. Daniels asks how he knew this but Kim says she told him nothing. Abbott enters and says he already got clearance for Patrick. Daniels leaves and tells Abbott it's his responsibility now... read more.
