Gaining an impressive amount of viewers on the pilot, the CBS show is back with a murder case in Napa Valley.
A preview for the second episode of CBS' new show "The Mentalist" is available. The crime drama show that pulled in an impressive 15.6 million viewers on the pilot episode on Tuesday, September 23, will be back in investigation on September 30 with the episode called "Red Hair and Silver Tape"
This time, Teresa Lisbon, played by Robin Tunney, will face a case where a young waitress is killed in the Napa Valley. California Bureau Investigation (CBI) agent Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) is called in and goes undercover using Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti) as a bait.
"The Mentalist" centers on Patrick, an independent consultant with 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. Senior Agent Teresa meanwhile, relies on logic and no-nonsense factors, therefore despising Patrick's method of solving crimes.
