“The Mentalist” Season 6 Episode 17 “Silver Wings Of Time” Recap:
“The Mentalist” Season 6 Episode 17 “Silver Wings Of Time,” which was aired on April 13, 2014, begins with the investigations of Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and his team on a bomb scene. The crime was allegedly connected with an innocent prisoner who was going to be sentenced in a few days.
Jane has finally moved on from the case of Red John (Xander Berkeley) after his long battle with the man who killed his wife and daughter. Along with the California Bureau of Investigation, he needed to prove that the man who is getting executed in a few days is innocent.
A bomber planted an explosive inside a bus and it wasn’t for the big show. He just wanted to kill one man. The plot continued to thicken as it was revealed that the man killed was named David Ronaldo (Halbert Bernal), who was connected with the 14 year old case of Luis Cruz (Oscar Torre). He was so near to getting his childhood friend exonerated. On the other hand, the woman with the child was not innocent at all and the baby was just a doll. Gina Petrocelli (Angelique Cabral) was actually planted by the bomber to distract Ronaldo and switch their identical briefcases.
Cruz was jailed for killing Sarah Feinberg, who was the wife of a psychiatrist at a drug treatment facility near Cruz. Sarah’s husband Edward (John de Lancie) found her body after the murder and Cruz’ bloody shirt at the scene. Eventually, Cruz was proven innocent after Edward’s new wife May (Jud Taylor) confessed that she killed Sarah.
Meanwhile, the team of Jane and Agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) continued to get complicated. Jane still tries to figure out his exact feelings for Lisbon while she goes on a date with FBI Special Agent Marcus Pike (Pedro Pascal).
