LATEST THEORIES

In everyone's opinion, besides season 6-What was the worse season of the Mentalist?

For me, it has to be Season 5. I feel like the RJ Storyline hit the wall and it wasn't until the fall of Season 6 that it SEEMED the show was recapturing the initial excitement with RJ.

Simon Baker at a recent WB press conference:

“The experience that we had last year, in the last season—it was really interesting because you have the arc of what a story is and what the story should be. Then you have the idea of the business outside of that, of whether it will continue or whether the story is finished.

“If you ask me, the original story that we started off with and laid out in the pilot episode many years ago—that story finished probably around the end of the second season. When was Bradley Whitford (in the show as a man who convinced Patrick he was Red John but was not)? Like third season? I don’t know. They all blend into one."

He goes on to talk about Jisbon so I won't include it here.  Just found his "opinion" (whilst among WB execs) to be interesting and similar to some thoughts expressed here recently.

Discussion question for anyone out there-What moment did you realize that the Red John story had been completely mismanaged? For me it came about 3 episodes after the reveal when I realized they were dropping the storyline, but for some it might have come in Season 6 before the reveal (I saw someone mention Fire and Brimstone below)-or even in an earlier season.

 I never thought this site would "die" like this. The last comment is from one week ago. I must say I feel nostalgic sometimes. We had the best show and they ruined it. Other tv series will come and we'll forget this show. Cheers people.

PS: Can anyone recommend me shows like the mentalist (when it was good lol)

im not a person that is going to watch every episode 50 times to catch every word a phrase said but if had to take a stab on who Red John was i would say that Jane has split personality and Red John is his other personality

The Mentalist will get a blast from Patrick Jane's past as the series comes to a close.

Ominous Episode 8 Title Confirmed For 'The Mentalist', When Will Filming Begin?

The CBS drama will conclude it's run at the end of season 7, and two of Jane's old circus pals will return in episode 9.

Titled "Copper Bullet," the Tom Donaghy penned story will reintroduce
viewers to Samantha (Tangie Ambrose) and Pete Barsocky (M.C. Gainey).
Both character's previously appeared in season 3's "Cackle-Bladder
Blood" and season 5's "Red John's Rules."

In response to the previous post, I have this to say: Despite the
terrible previous season, despite the interviews with the cast and
Heller, despite almost all of the viewers even believing he is dead at
this point there are some of us mentalistas know this to be true. Red
John is still alive and he will return this season. There is no
Mentalist without Red John and there is no way McAlister was the end of
the story. Mark my words.
