‘The Mentalist’ Episode Guide (Dec. 21): Fraudulent Diamond Operation Investigated

“Black Market” (12/21/14) – The team investigates a murder linked to a counterfeit diamond operation, but an illness forces Jane to direct his colleagues from the office as he recuperates.

Meanwhile, Abbott is concerned that transgressions in his past could harm his wife’s chance to obtain a prestigious job in Washington, D.C., on “The Mentalist,” Sunday, Dec. 21 (9:30-10:30 PM, ET/9:00-10:00 PM, PT), on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are William Abadirq (Jacques), Devon Barnes (Wren), Courtney James Clark (Dixie), Will Green (Kirk), Leonard Roberts (Elon), Christine Adams (Lena), Rene Rivera (Josef), Nicole Shaloub (Lupe), Jeff Branson (Walker), Claudia Christian (Greta), Amelia Rose Blaire (Bibby), Larry Clarke (Bob), Brian Houtz (Man) and Dinora Walcott (Mary Kate).

“Black Market” was written by Tom Donaghy and directed by Michael Nankin.

The seventh and final season of “The Mentalist” stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, a consultant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor-sharp skills of observation.

Formerly employed by the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Jane spent two years off the grid after tracking down and killing Red John, the serial killer who murdered Jane’s wife and daughter. Jane later cut a deal with the FBI to work for them, convincing former CBI Agent Teresa Lisbon to join him.

They are supervised by the no-nonsense Agent Dennis Abbott, and work alongside former CBI agent Kimball Cho, FBI analyst Jason Wylie and young, ambitious Agent Michelle Vega. Now that Lisbon and Jane have confessed their love for one another, they must find a way to be partners in both their professional and personal lives.

“The Mentalist” stars Simon Baker (Patrick Jane), Robin Tunney (Teresa Lisbon), Tim Kang (Kimball Cho), Rockmond Dunbar (Dennis Abbott), Joe Adler (Jason Wylie) and Josie Loren (Michelle Vega)
