Tonight as CBS’ The Mentalist christens its new, final time slot — Wednesdays at 8/7c — Special Agent Abbot will be pressured to cross a line.

As seen in the sneak peek above, Abbott’s former DEA boss, Bill Peterson (played by The Good Wife’s three-time Emmy nominee, Dylan Baker), has seen his agency’s conduct come into question. Abbott of course has a job to do as he investigates possible malfeasance, but that doesn’t keep Peterson from trading on their past to ask a favor.

Will Abbott book passage on this guilt trip? Press play above, and tell us what the look on his face tells you.
