Morena Baccarin Heading Back to CBS' THE MENTALIST

Morena Baccarin is officially headed back to CBS' long-running drama THE MENTALIST for a single episode, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed.

Per the report, during the third episode of the seventh season, "Jane teams up with Erika Flynn in Beirut, Lebanon, where he and Lisbon have gone at the request of the CIA to take down an international weapons dealer. Erika has agreed to help Jane and the CIA in exchange for a pardon on the murder charges she's still facing and the chance to return to the U.S. But as always Erika has agendas of her own, one of which may, or may not, be inserting herself between Jane and Lisbon."

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.
