The Mentalist viewers should prepare to meet the father of Patrick Jane, courtesy of a flashback.
On the November 12 episode of this hit drama, Nick Chinlund - who has guest-starred on Desperate Housewives and The Sopranos - will appear as Alex, the dad of Simon Baker's character, in an installment that takes fans back to the 1980s.
During the hour, we'll learn that a young Patrick worked as a psychic at various carnivals, with his showman father keeping an eye on his unique offspring.
For now, Chinlund is only booked for this single episode.
