The Mentalist Season Finale to "Change Hunt for Red John"

by at . Comments

Tom Szentgyorgyi has offered fans an intriguing clue into how The Mentalist Season 5 will conclude.

Following last week's major reveal by Lorelei - that Jane has shaken hands in the past with Red John - the producer tells TV Guide that recent episodes have been "about Jane digging into the notion that it's not that Red John could be anyone; it's that Red John is one of a very specific set of people that Jane is uniquely qualified to investigate."

So, where is all this going?

"The finale is going to pay that off in a way that will completely change the hunt for Red John," says Szentgyorgyi. "We are going to know some very specific things about who he might be."

Ponder that tease now and visit TV Guide for more Mega Buzz and spoilers related to The Walking Dead, New Girl and other TV Fanatic favorites.

The Mentalist is the only show that I watch because it is so good.
I know lots of people are going to be upset if this series ends.
If you do cancel, please have Simon Baker in a new series. Love him.

Red John or no, I love the series and please don't cancel Patrick and the other wonderful characters. The intrigue it much more interesting than Castle which is on TNT back to back day after day, after day, after day, etc.

Red John is Garrett Dillahunt

I feel that the red john seven suspects that are going to be revealed in the season finale will be inside Agent La Roche's Tupperware. The executive producer of the show has confirmed that the secret of the Tupperware will be disclosed this season. So I'm guessing it to be the suspects inside that box.

Ok, people who are saying you're sick of the Red John hunt, like...wtf? I mean, that's the whole background suspense of this otherwise unoriginal crime csi series. It'd be just like all the other shows out there if they had already found RJ. I mean, yeah I hope they find him soon too, it can't go on until the end of the season because they have to deal with the aftermath. But dont bash the show, ppl.

I think that for Patrick Jane to move on and be a better detective they have to find Red John this season so Lisbon can get together with Patrick.

Teresa Lisbon: Why don't you go back to my place, jump into bed? I'll come and tuck you in when I'm done.
Patrick Jane: I'd rather be here with you.
