Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, titled “Black Helicopters.” The episode centers on the death of a U.S. attorney in Mexico, which leads Jane to a separatist compound near the border. In the clip, Jane (Simon Baker) calls Fischer (Emily Swallow) and Cho (Tim Kang) and asks them to trace his phone, but when they arrive, there’s no sign of him — just an angry guy with a shotgun.

The situation goes from tense to just when Jane, through Fischer’s phone, asks everyone not to shoot and then pops out of a hole in the ground. Take a look:

“The Mentalist” airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT Sunday on CBS.
