To be honest I don't know how to feel about the finale. I always was a Jisbon fan/shipper but presumed that it would be in the very last scene of the show. I always thought (hoped) that red john would be caught in the last episode. Instead, we got this sherif crap and wedding bullshit.
This show was truly amazing and could've been the best in the history of tv shows. I've never been so emotionally attached to the characters of a tv show, truly a wonderful cast from Jane all the way to Van Pelt.
This show has been a part of my life for 7 years and it's sad to have witnessed what it had become. I guess all good things come to an end whether it's the end you hoped for or not.
We knew this show would come to an end, but the way it did that simply baffles me. How once a great great show, a piece of art really, becomes a soap opera crap.
Anyway, I wanted to say that is been a pleasure to read all your theories and thoughts about this show and I applaud all of you who sticked together until the very end whether we liked it or not, through good and bad.
It's been a real honour and I thank you all for this.
To end on a slightly better note I have one last theory ( solution if you like ) on how this show could maybe be saved and keep its dignity. So here goes, and remember guys, there's always hope, false hope but hope nonetheless.
Some other network picks up the mentalist for a season 8:
Season 8 is 4 years after "Jisbons" child is born. Red john obviously is still alive and upset that Jane moved on, so to teach him a lesson ( again ) he kills his child. Jane and Lisbon go after RJ one last time as husband and wife to get revenge for their child and since Cho is in charge now he reassembles the team including Rigsby and Van Pelt.
Oh and did anyone else spot CBI Ron at the wedding ???
Thank you all so much :)
God I will miss this show
