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.

Jane wants to be the one to takedown Red John but he should know that he can't go at it like Lorelei. Maybe that will be the change. I love the Red John story line. I hope there is another season or more.


Well, if you listen to what is actually being said, between the characters, you would be a fool not to believe that Jane, himself, is Red John. Sorry, that's what I believe it's leading to.


I will believe it when I see it....but right now I don't believe anything they say about Red John because so far the storyline has went NO WHERE.


If season finale CHANGE the hunt for red John, season 5 can't be the last season!
