Teresa Lisbon to Develop "Killer Instinct" on The Mentalist

by at . Comments

Teresa Lisbon will soon have a lot in common with Patrick Jane. And with Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive.

Asked about an upcoming three-episode arc for the character on The Mentalist Season 5, which shifts to Sunday and premieres September 30, creator Bruno Heller teased to TV Guide that Lisbon will soon gain a "killer instinct" when she goes after a suspect.

Lisbon on The Mentalist

Look for the suspect in question to either be a duplicitous millionaire playboy or a mysterious government official; and for Lisbon to grow obsessed with bringing him to justice.

It will help her relate better than ever before to her male counterpart on the series. Previews Heller:

"Once you've felt that urge and that need, you understand people in that same frame of mind much better."

    Please don't let Lisbon's nemesis be Walter Mashburn. Maybe it could be the Visualize guy (I forgot his name, but his real name is Malcomb McDowell).


    & I have a hunch that government official could be Gale Betram,but he wont be "mysterious".


    Is it just me or the multumillionaire character sound like Walter Mashburn & it would make sense if he is,coz if he turns out to be a bad guy,Lisbon is bound to feel betrayed & she will take it upon herself to bring him to justice. To be honest,when i first read that Lisbon will get own Red John like nemesis in a 3 episode arc,i thought it will be someone from her past(like her mother's car accident,wasnt an accident...too much Castle,i know)which is why i would be glad if its not.Nevertheless its a very interesting plot development on the Jane/Lisbon front.
