Step aside Lisbon (Robin Tunney) and newly introduced FBI Agent Kim Fischer (Emily Swallow), because there’s a new lady in Patrick Jane’s (Simon Baker) life.
As first reported by TVLine, Brianna Brown will join ‘The Mentalist’ for an episode as Krystal Markham, “a woman connected to a case that the FBI is working on.”
Brown, most recently known for playing Taylor on Lifetime’s ‘Devious Maids,’ is set to appear in an early 2014 episode. It looks like Brown’s character will make quite the impression on Jane, as he asks Krystal out on a date, which surprises both Lisbon and Fischer.
In addition to his evening out with "psychic" Kristina Frye early in the series, this date is a rare occurrence for Jane, especially since his wife and daughter were murdered. Now that Red John is dead and gone, Jane’s life is changing in all areas. Do you think Jane is really interested in Krystal? Or, do you think he’s using his investigative skills to trap her in a crime?
Whatever it is, Jane seems to be a changed man. As we saw in last Sunday’s episode, like Jane, ‘The Mentalist’ is fresher and different without the hunt for serial killer Red John and the dissolution of the CBI. Are you liking the new direction of the show?
‘The Mentalist’s fall finale will air Sunday, Dec. 8 at 10/9c on CBS.
