When the FBI receive a note from killer threatening to come out of retirement unless the FBI stops him, Lisbon‘s (Robin Tunney) transfer to D.C. is put on hold as she, Jane (Simon Baker), Fischer (Emily Swallow), and Cho (Harry Groener) head down to Miami on one last case together. While questioning the husband (Vincent Spano) and daughter (Haley Hudson) of the first victim, the victim’s former business partner (Victoria Smurfit), and the original suspect (George Finn) who was eventually cleared Jane shows each of them the killer’s note not realizing just how many will act on it before the season finale comes to a close.

The ongoing human trafficking story comes to a close as Wiley’s (Joe Adler) digging leads to a big break for the FBI when the tech is able to link both the truck used to transport 30 young women across the border into Mexico and the closed-down medical facility where other woman were harvested for their organs back to a single suspect: Michael Ridley (Titus Welliver). DNA from 15 women killed in the clinic and that of a single man also leads Fischer (Emily Swallow) and Cho (Harry Groener) to track down a former surgeon (Robert Joy) who they hope has the answers they need to finding the missing cargo container of girls now believed to be somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Under the pretense of trying Jane (Simon Baker) for the murder of Red John, the FBI sets up a sting to investigate the members of a grand jury who recently let a mob boss (Jonathan LaPaglia) walk on murder charges. Jane’s trial gives the Mentalist an unique opportunity to observe each member of the panel, and even attempt to engage with the directly, although the prosecutor (Merle Dandridge), who isn’t clued in on the truth of the matter, is less than pleased with Jane’s trademark antics.

After leading the FBI to a young woman dying of a gunshot wound in the home of what Jane (Simon Baker) refers to as a “sketchy individual” (Nick von Esmarch), the Mentalist works to prove the man wasn’t responsible for the aspiring model’s death and that the mentally-deficient suspect simply found her bleeding on the side of the highway just as he told Abbot (Rockmond Dunbar). After helping the man retrace his steps with the help of a cold beer, Wiley (Joe Adler), and a couple memory tricks, Jane leads Lisbon (Robin Tunney) and Cho (Harry Groener) out to the middle of nowhere where they find another kidnap victim (Zuleyka Silver) who was taken in by the same modeling scam.

When Jane (Simon Baker) decides to loan the unit out to help another FBI agent (Pedro Pascal) catch a gang of murdering art thieves every member finds a role to play in an elaborate con involving misdirection, stolen art, Cho punching a suspect in a crowded bar, and a marching band. The team only knows a small fraction of the overall plan to entrap the leader of the crew (Charles Mesure), which is revealed to them as it is to the audience, by first using Abbot (Rockmond Dunbar), Fischer (Emily Swallow), Cho, and Lisbon (Robin Tunney) to bait one of his subordinates (Sean McGowan) and offer the crew a job too good to pass up.

With Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti) kidnapped and Richard Haibach (William Mapother) turning himself over to the FBI while denying any involvement in either her disappearance or the murders of Oscar Ardiles (David Norona) and LaRoche (Pruitt Taylor Vince) the FBI frantically searches to discover the truth. Agent Abbot (Rockmond Dunbar) puts Wiley (Joe Adler) and the team to punching a hole into Haibach’s ironclad alibi while searching for an accomplice he must be using to commit the crimes. With the FBI not having any solid evidence to hold him,  Jane (Simon Baker) and Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) get unpredictable including kidnapping Haibach and stranding his lawyer (Penny Peyser) in the middle of nowhere.

The murder of a Federal Public Defender in Mexico leads Jane‘s (Simon Baker) to uncover an underground tunnel from Texas to Mexico used to smuggle people and goods across the border (and dump the victim’s body in another country). Despite the number of laws the rancher is charged with breaking, murder isn’t one of them leading Jane and Fischer (Emily Swallow) to look for leads on this side of the border involving a Texas commune (which Jane strands Fischer to investigate on his own).

Jane (Simon Baker) and the FBI head to Houston to investigate the suspicious death of a government-paid cartographer working on Pentagon defense contracts who was investigating a potential security leak in the company before his unlikely drug overdose on an assorted cocktail of everything from amphetamines to horse tranquilizers. Although initially fingering the victim’s brother (Travis Schuldt) as a lark, Jane will use the man’s obvious motive to later lay a trap for the real killer.
