Baccarin’s character, professional matchmaker Erica Flynn, was last seen heading to jail after being arrested for her complicity in a murder. Executive producer Bruno Heller declined to reveal the circumstances surrounding the character’s comeback, except to say that it marks “the return of one of the few people who can mess with Jane’s mind.”

News of Baccarin’s Mentalist encore comes as the Firefly alumna gears up for the premiere of her extremely well-received new Showtime thriller Homeland (airing Sunday at 10/9c).
