Sneak Peek: Has The Mentalist Caught the FBI's New Recruit in a Lie?

Loading video...

As CBS’ The Mentalist opens its farewell run this Sunday at 9:30/8:30c, the FBI team has bid adieu to Agent Fisher. A fresh new recruit, though, is joining their ranks — but she’d perhaps be wise to behold Patrick Jane’s mad skills.

As seen in the above sneak peek, Michelle Vega (played by new series regular Josie Loren, Make It or Break It) has barely exchanged her first hellos when Jane tenders an observation about her background. Vega, though, rebuffs his suggestion and instead offers an alternate scenario. Is the noob hiding something, or is this a rare instance of Jane missing the mark? Or is there possibly a third explanation?

Watch the video above, then share your theories on what the truth might be.
