The Mentalist Season 6: What We Hope to See

at . Comments

September 29th feels like it's a long way off. Mostly because it is. And as much as we enjoy summer, the cool breezes of autumn and our favorite shows returning with new episodes weigh heavy on our minds.

So since we have to wait another 80-plus days for the season premiere of The Mentalist, we decided to make a list.

Read on, TV Fanatics, and see if our hopes and dreams for The Mentalist Season 6 match yours. Vote for what you'd most like to see happen come fall and don't forget to share your thoughts and add anything we've missed in the comments below.

Jane's Wild West

Our Mentalist Season 6 Wish List:

The Big Reveal. Yes, we finally want to know Red John's true identity. It's been five seasons. It's about time we know.

A Love Interest for Cho. One that doesn't involve a hooker, a junkie, or any other type of criminal. Someone worthy of the character we've grown to love.

More Rigsby and Van Pelt. It took a long time for these two to find their way back to one another. We're hoping to see this couple stay happy for a while.

Jisbon. That's the shipper name for Jane and Lisbon for those not in the know. A Jane / Lisbon pairing has been hinted at and teased for five seasons. It's included an I love you from Patrick that he later side stepped and many doe eyed looks for Teresa. It's about time these two had an honest conversation about how they feel for one another.

A Kiss. For those of us who don't care about the talking and want a little more action, a real kiss between this dynamic duo would make us cheer.

Casual Time. Wouldn't it be great to see the entire team spend a little more time outside the CBI?

Real Danger for Our Core Team. Show creator Bruno Heller promised that Red John will be targeting closer to home this season. We're hoping that means RJ will go after someone on Jane's immediate team. Not that we want to see Lisbon, Cho, Rigsby, or Van Pelt die at the hands of the merciless serial killer…but having one of them in serious peril will have us glued to the screen.

Continued-then I'm going to brake away from security for a moment and jump on Simon. Simon Baker!......I wanna exhale, ex.....hale......! Yes! I'm back to being silly! The End!


After this series is over, I'm going to need a straight jacket! RED JOHN, RED JOHN! YOU SEE HIM EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK! I'm going to fly down to LA and hide on the set. When they reveal the actor who is Red John, I'm going jump out and start beating him with a stick! HOW... DO....YOU..
...LIKE.....IT? HUH? Then I'll catch myself as security drags me out! Oh, my bad, my bad! I forgot myself. Nice show, really realistic! I'm a fan, really! Simon, can I get an autograph!!!!!


Now, how cool is that! These lyrics tell the whole Red John story!


Your enemy won't do you no harm cause you'll know where he's coming from
Don't let the handshake and the smile fool Ya
Take my advice I'm only tryin' to school ya


Smiling faces, sometimes pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within
Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes they don't tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof
Beware, beware of the hand shake that hides a snake
I'm telling you beware of the pat on the back, it just might hold you back
Jealousy (jealousy) Misery (misery) Envy, I tell you can't see behind smilingfaces


They need to play the song smiling faces by Undisputed Truth when they take down Red John. Check out these lyrics...


Wiping that smile off Red John's face will be good enough for me. I hope Jane makes him eat it!


I tell you, this is going to be bigger then who shot JR!


It's getting hectic and we haven't even seen the first episode yet. eeeeesssssh!?!


OH, criminy! So now Heller gives us this cryptic hint about the takedown of Red John. There are so many ways to interpret no cheery ending for "anyone" involved. Who does "anyone" include? EVERYONE significant to the plot has been involved in one way or another. So will everyone be disappointed? harmed? Will no one be pleased that RJ has met his end? Now we get to think up scenarios that get rid of RJ but leave everyone not-cheery about it. Hmmmm. It IS possible. Example: Will RJ turn out to be Jane's half-brother? Wouldn't killing him make Jane feel somewhat not-cheery? I suppose so. I can see some interesting story possibilities here. Can't wait for the reveal!!
