The Mentalist - Orange Blossom Ice Cream

The Mentalist's final season continues with its most anticipated guest-star as Morena Baccarin returns in the role of Erica Flynn in an episode that continues to play on her chemistry with Jane (Simon Baker), which is a little awkward for The Mentalist now that he's with Lisbon (Robin Tunney) as Jane and Lisbon head Beirut to recruit Flynn's help with taking down terrorist leader Jan Nemic (Mark Ivanir).

\ The set-up in Beruit involving the man's operation, and Jane's "audition" consisting of memorizing a series of numbers while being drowned in a bathtub, are more than a little off the beaten path for the show. Both Baker and Tunney have fun playing the awkardness of certain scenes involving Erica, and Baccarin steps easily back into the role of seductress, liar, coniver, and murderer in her final appearance on the show. Back at home the search for Nemic's contact results in some conflict between rookie Michelle Vega (Josie Loren) and her hero Cho (Harry Groener) which will likely have some fallout in the remainder of the season.
