On tonight's new episode of The Mentalist, Patrick Jane goes to jail.
As for the next couple weeks? Creator Bruno Heller previewed upcoming storylines in a recent chat with TV Guide Magazine. Stop reading now if you prefer to be surprised...
November 12: Jane gets walloped on the head while working on a case at a baseball stadium. As a result, says Heller:
“We have a series of flashbacks showing how Jane was raised as this psychic boy wonder in the morally ambiguous world of traveling carnies. It’s like a Gypsy Rose Lee scenario. Fans will get some very interesting insight into Jane’s character.”
Later in the month: As Jane and the CBI team look into a dead body that’s been hidden for two years under the floorboards of a house, Bosco appears at the same resident, seeking a woman that’s been kidnapped.
The pair is forced to team up and, as Heller puts it: “Cue the fireworks.”
