The Mentalist Relationship Spoilers: Little Hope for Rigsby and Van Pelt

by at . Comments

Bruno Heller has bad news for certain fans of The Mentalist.

The show's creator tells TV Guide he has no plans to get Rigsby and Van Pelt back together any time soon, as the latter will continue to get close to O'Loughlin. It's not hard to imagine the displeasure this will cause for Rigsby at work.

Rigsby and Cho

Wanna go out with Wayne Rigsby, ladies? The Mentalist character is looking to rebound.

"It becomes a distraction that brings a lot of tension into the office," Heller said, adding that Rigsby date around often in the coming episodes. "He's going to start looking for a way to get out from under that relationship, but it's hard. It's going to be both funny and touching to watch him try."
