While investigating the murder of a casino employee, Jane runs into a stage magician he used to tour with during his time as a mentalist and discovers he is hiding a shocking secret.
Jane crosses swords with another Red John suspect.
Lisbon and Jane are called in by FBI Agent Reede Smith when Benjamin Marx, a financier from whom Jane himself elicited a confession of murder, is found dead.
As he unravels the motivation behind the killing of a wedding guest, Jane gets to scrutinise Sheriff McAllister.

It must be your internet that is the problem because recently I changed from AOL Broadband (where it froze every two seconds) to BT Infinity and now it does not freeze at all!
I'm glad I actually looked at the comments here as I've been getting the same problems since the finale of Sons Of Anarchy. I've been watching stuff Demand5 on an iMac for a year now and only recently has it become impossible to watch!! :(
mine worked until a few weeks ago
Oh this is just getting silly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Channel 5 I player is a joke
come on channel 5 sill have not fix this problem I am very upset
Boycott channel 5
The report a problem popup comes up behind the video making it impossible to fill in. its obvious channel 5 doesn't want this service to work. Maybe its time for a boycott (bet they delete this comment)
Funny every other service works, netflix works, channel 5 does not. Piss poor quality.
same as every one else. watched 10 minutes and it keeps stopping every 30 seconds.. ads work perfectly.. going away to see this somewhere else..
When they opened the safe, how did that man pushing the black box get back in without the key????????
Some times, it is better to watch this "Off-Peak" It will sometimes get through it all. I suggest Saturday Morning
complete joke!! lets you watch adverts but not video. piss take!! get it sorted
YaY Started watching It fine, All of a sudden adverts come on and bang! Black Screen, Everything crashes....
Tried watching it last night - stop - start - stop - start - stop - stop - stop - start - a joke - take some notes from BBC IPlayer guys?!?!?!
Why does 5OD have so many problems with their programs. It's not plesent to watch compered to other channels. 5 Wake up and sort the problems out!
Too many adverts!!!
always had problems like everyone else deleted browsing history worked straight away. Great show :)
18meg connection, Law & Order works fine as does CSI. Never had a problem with Mentalist before but this episode is unwatchable!
PPPPPLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEE-make it work channel five!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
it keeps freezing, the adds work bbc iplayer works everything works but this it is sooooo irritating.
This is happening to me too and its not the computer i have tried on mac, windows and iPad and still nothing!! Very frustrating! also happening with other programmes on here, but all other catch up sites work perfectly.
This was a really good episode! Nice one, Mr Jane.
I was having huge problems - just wouldn't play. Deleted my global FLash settings and local cache and it worked perfectly...
Working perfectly .... the ads that is....
Work perfectly every time for me, I only get two meg
always works 100% but only since we ungraded internet and also im wireless No didnt upgrade just to watch 5 on demand . Also pity you cant watch earlier episodes of most shows on 5
ahaa solved it , click from small to full screen or vice versa when adds go blank and it works fine
HEY! those who say its our internet that gives us the problem with demand five- your wrong! It happens to often to to many people-all other iplayers like ITV and BBC work perfect just like a 'oiled tuna'. It never was like this until several months ago- cause demand fivei sgetting popular.
loveit loveit loveit!
Had no problems watching - my hubby sometimes has problems if he uses his MacBook to try and watch 5OD, he ends up using my "lesser" windows machine. Maybe this is the problem you are having???
the guy with sick internet
Well well well.. people who say you cant watch it.. it must be your computer or internet .. because for me it's running like oiled tuna! 50MB internet ... love fibre optic ;)
I'm never going to get these 20 wasted minutes of my life back !! As above, perfect ads, stop start, stop stop not even 2 mins of viewing.
not working, im guessing that im getting the same sort of service that the rest of you are talking about
wish ad looked at these b4 a tried 2 watch it and a mean tried,nowt gan on
how cool was that???!!! no adverts and no freezing!!! sweeeeeeet!!!!!
can't watch a thing..... come on sort it out
What is wrong with Channel 5???
you its strange how 100% of the time the adds work perfectly...
i havent even watched 10 minz of this episode and all ready sick of this.why do we even bother commenting on how bad demand 5 is when nothing is ever done?
poor/non existant connection to episode 19. all other channel catch up/on demand even live tv stream is perfect. a very amateurish standard.
very poor connection to this episode(19). having problems actually viewing the content. happens a lot with ch5. iplayer, 40d and live tv streaming from other sites are perfect.
