Patrick quickly finds penniless Jay Banner, reported missing by his friends, half-buried on the beach after washing up, skull smashed. Suspets include his house-mate Jeeter James, their landlord Tark Mitchum, slick city drug dealer Tookie and Lisbon's ex Greg Marshall, whose wife Greta cheats on him. A treasure from a wreck probably provided ample motive but also baits Jane's trap. Rigsby enjoys the burdens of fatherhood but Cho's affair with informer Vicky gets overstretched.

In loving memory of Keith O'Brien. Keith O'Brien was a driver who worked with the crew of The Mentalist. He died of cancer. The producers thought it would be nice to commemorate him after "this episode of sad goodbyes". See more
