Synopsis


CBI arrives at a department store, the recent murder scene of Ivor Rasmussen. Eager to return to the Red John case, Jane makes short work of the suspect pool, using his mentalist skills to find the murder weapon and expose the killer. Back at headquarters, Minelli gives Jane an earful for the quarter million dollars worth of damage and the dead suspect as a result of his unorthodox methods. Minelli's also concerned with how close the team is to Red John given their recent events, so he hands the case over to a new CBI team led by the straight-shooting Sam Bosco. Without his revenge on Red John, Jane begins to box up his personal effects, but decides to help out with one last case. Monica Dunniger, an estranged wife and mother is found dead in her motel room, the victim of what looks like a personal crime gone wrong. As the case unfolds, the team discovers she was part of an accounting cover up. Her boss Rhonda Jaffe was responsible for stealing from her company and Monica discovered the discrepancy and threatened exposure. Rhonda made a deal with her that would admit her son into one of the best cancer treatment centers and pay her a monthly wage and in return she took the blame and disappeared. When her son's cancer was cured, Rhonda feared Monica's return home and killed her. The proof lied in an accounts book checked into the library with all the fraudulent activity as well as a DVD confession clearing her name. Jane stays with CBI and we're left with him getting Bosco's security codes changed, the beginning of a turbulent relationship.
