Tv Season Info

The fifth series of this crime drama picks up with Jane (Simon Baker) trying to figure out the connection between Lorelei (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and the elusive serial killer Red John. The CBI and the FBI fight over custody of the imprisoned Lorelei, who turns up several times throughout the series, and she and Jane prove helpful to one another. Her info propels Jane to begin assembling a list of possible Red John suspects, while Lisbon (Robin Tunney) finds a villain of her own to vow to take down: multi-millionaire murder suspect Tommy Volker (Henry Ian Cusick). Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) also gets personally involved in a case when his father gets injured in a small town's gang war. Likewise, Jane reconnects with a member of his family during an investigation: his murdered daughter, now all grown up. However, his conversations with her are only imaginary, brought on when he unknowingly drinks a cup of tea laced with a hallucinogen. Jane revisits the past in a different way during the show's 100th episode, which is a flashback to the time he first joined the CBI.

Critic Reviews for The Mentalist: Season 5

All Critics (3)

This old-fashioned framework yields another, related aspect of the series' appeal and its strangeness.

September 30, 2012 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

'The Crimson Ticket' was a very good start to the 5th season - a great set up for the serialized arc and a decent, if not spectacular, case of the week.

September 30, 2012 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I'm looking forward to another wickedly fun season of The Mentalist.
