On this week's episode of The Mentalist, the team is called out to a little island to solve the murder of a girl with a troubled past. Grab your butterfly nets and a cup of tea for some highly observational fun.
Lisbon and Jane are checking out the body of a dead female on an island when they run into William Gardner, butterfly enthusiast. They find out that the land is owned by another man, Jeb Stack (no relation to Joe Stack, noted IRS hater) who owns the land that the body was found on. It looks like we already have our first few suspects.
It turns out that the body belongs to a young woman named Talia Suarez who grew up in and out of foster homes. Jane and Lisbon try to find townspeople to talk to, but the place is deserted because everyone is at a town meeting. Who goes to town meetings anymore? I guess the locals are stuck in a time capsule of 1948.
