Apparently Jane's (Simon Baker) insistence that he needs to start a new life away from police work is causing a rift between him and Lisbon (Robin Tunney) on The Mentalist.

On Wednesday's new episode - the penultimate installment before next week's series finale - Jane seems to have met his mental match in someone who may be a true psychic. Or is he just a serial killer trying to cover his tracks?

There's only one way to find out, but first the team will have to locate Jane, who's gone MIA.

In the sneak peek below, exclusive to TVGuide.com, Cho (Tim Kang), Abbott (Rockmond Dunbar) and Lisbon dissect the case they're working on, with Abbott warning Lisbon that she and Jane need to set aside their personal differences for the time being in order to do their jobs.
