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."
