The sixth season of the CBS police procedural series The Mentalist, created by Bruno Heller, premiered on September 29, 2013.
“The Desert Rose”
Following a case where Jane’s cavalier involvement leads to a shootout between the killer and police, Bertram banishes the team to the desert and tasks them with solving the murder of a man whose body has been found two years after his death. Now that Lisbon and Jane know that Red John is aware of their list, though, they are spooked by the assignment. After all, Bertram could be Red John and he might be using this as an excuse to get them out of town for a while. While Jane rolls with the punches, Lisbon decides to share Jane’s list with Van Pelt – a decision that Jane is vehemently opposed to. While Lisbon and Van Pelt set up tracking devices on each of the Red John suspects, the rest of the team round up suspects while Jane finds himself drawn to a small diner in the desert.
“Black-Winged Red Bird”
Jane and the team investigate the murder of Titus Street, a software engineer whose car explodes right in front of a police officer. When the CBI learns that Titus was employed by a company that makes aerial drones for the US military, they realize that the explosion was actually the result of a drone strike. The team hits a wall when they learn how much of Titus’ work is classified, but they continue to pursue the case by questioning everyone in Titus’ life, including a disgruntled co-worker and the prostitute that Titus was sleeping with.Following Brett Partridge’s death at the end of Episode 601, Jane and Lisbon’s suspicions turn toward CBI director Gale Bertram.

Jane gets the CBI involved in a case in Napa in order to focus on Sheriff McAllister, while Van Pelt and Rigsby finally take a trip down the aisle and get married.
Jane is called to a murder scene by FBI agent Reede Smith, one of the people on his list of Red John suspects. The victim is Benjamin Marx, the killer that Jane buried alive in episode 423. Jane figures out that someone broke into his aerie and stole his list of suspects…the false one that he planted, which included Marx’s name among other criminals that he’s dealt with in the past. In an attempt to discover who might have had access and motive, Jane contacts his old boss, Madeline Hightower, who has faked her own death and gone into hiding. Hightower tells Jane that Robert Kirkland has been keeping tabs on him for years, and Jane realizes that the Homeland Security agent is on his own quest for vengeance against Red John.
“The Red Tattoo”
The CBI investigates the murder of Chad Parkman, a former Olympic gymnastics coach, who appears to have been stabbed to death in a hotel room. Surveillance footage doesn’t show anyone else having entered the room, though, and there’s a twenty story drop out the window, so Jane doesn’t have much to go on. Compounding the mystery, the knife used to stab Parkman is found in a seemingly unrelated carjacking nearby. Because Parkman was a member of Visualize, second-in-command Jason Cooper and ex-CBI agent Ray Haffner show up to help out.
