THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Heather Tom (Katie) pulls double duty on Thursday, November 18, when she guest-stars on THE MENTALIST. The episode “Red Moon” centers around a local astrologer who helps Patrick Jane solve the puzzling case of a tripe homicide that involves two policemen and the fiancé of an EMT worker. Tom will appear as Marva, a witness to one of the killings. “I play this small town waitress whose co-worker gets murdered,” Tom tells Soaps In Depth. “I shot it in one day and I had that day off [at B&B] so it worked out great.”

Tom had the pleasure of working with series star Simon Baker (Patrick) — but not as a scene partner. “He directed the episode,” she reveals. “I thought he was a wonderful director.”

THE MENTALIST airs on CBS at 10 p.m. EST.
