The Mentalist Season 5: Darkness Ahead

at . Comments

Be warned, CBS viewers: if you think Patrick Jane hit rock bottom on this week's The Mentalist Season 4 finale, creator Bruno Heller has some disturbing news.

"We’re certainly going to see a little more of that hard darker side of him," Heller previews to Entertainment Weekly. "That’s one of Simon Baker’s great assets as an actor, he can play both charming and dark at the same time. The show is not going to turn into a much darker show, but that character will show more of those colors. We’re getting closer to the meat of what the show is about."

As for Red John? Heller says it's conceivable fans have already met him, and is also prepared to disappoint many followers once the reveal is actually made.

"The trick is going to be - and this is coming - bringing the audience along and making them second guess themselves and ask, 'Is that him? Is that him?' Red John ultimately is just a man - whenever you see the great criminals reduced to the flesh it’s sort of disappointing. I have two seasons or so to make it come true. I can guarantee that people will be disappointed."

has ep 1 come out yet? pliz share the link!!!


I told you. I'll be happy if Grace is RJ. :p . she has red hair after all


Hmmm...just a thought...Wat if Jane has a dual personality and red John is one...if you see RJ is always 1 step ahead of him in what ever Jane plans....meaning RJ and Jane share the same head and Jane dosent know he himself is RJ....we as RJ know he is a part of Jane...So NO Wonder he was able to catch him[RJ] till now :)

Many questions on the table.........
I guess we just have to wait
and what ever the resolt is its not gonna be disapionting


when will the season begin? i have been waiting.


But I am not the killer?


I am the mentalist from season 3. The red headed lady!


Alright, If he was making things up in his mind, the people around him mustn't see those things. In season 4 finale, If he imagined that he is talking to Red John in the car, how it would be possible for Lorelei to hear him?
