Storyline

Patrick arrives in Mexico, driving his new mobile home HQ, before the flown-in FBI team to investigate the murder of a female Justice department lawyer whose corpse was dumped bizarrely besides the region's drug cartel's conventional 'graveyard'. He tracks the case back to Texas via human traffic tunnel to the inhospitable estate of an anti-government self-contained community, yet manages to get cordially invited to screen the members. Meanwhile Lisbon calls a marker, as advised by Jane, on LaRoche, to help Wayne and Van Pelt investigate the mysterious spying on the old CBI team. Written by KGF Vissers

The Mentalist Is Back! Stronger than ever!
9 March 2014 | by Dariush-ThePersianSee all my reviews

To be Honest with you I some times feared the "mentalist 2" may not be able to be to become as good as The Mentalist 1 used to be,but after watching "Black Helicopters" I'am confident that this show still has the capacity to attract viewers in front of their T.Vs...The characters, Specially the new ones are beginning to matter to the viewers...The changed writing style of this episode was another factor that made this one special...its like the show has finally found some kind of balance by combining Jane's approach to solving crimes and The F.B.I's help along the way..Plus this episode marks the return of a popular characters and continues "The Golden Hammer"'s legacy in building a new, mysterious and intriguing Arc.
