The Mentalist Season Finale Preview: Who's on The List?

at . Comments

Patrick Jane worked closely with J.J. LaRoche on the latest episode of The Mentalist.

But fans of this CBS drama can look forward to the crime-solver focusing his energy on someone else next Sunday: Red John.

The Mentalist Season 5 finale will center on Jane narrowing down his list of suspects to seven names, as the serial killer returns to kill someone from Jane's past. How can Patrick be so sure that his sworn enemy is back?

"Because when it's him, I can feel it," he tells Lisbon in the following creepy promo.

He's Partridge or Ardiles. I believe that, at 90 %.


I've been checking out the suspect lists on Walter Mashburn, the playboy billionaire, gets my vote as best choice for Red John. During the first episode he appeared in, he told Patrick something to the effect that he was very tough in his business dealings. He also quipped at the end of the first episode he was in that "maybe next time I'll be the killer." He clearly liked and was amused by Patrick, and slept with Lisbon at the end of the second episode which featured him. Patrick saved his life in that episode. I think he'd be a great choice for Red John, because he seems like such a mellow and almost unassuming (for a playboy billionaire) character. He has the resources to be Red John as well. It is easy to see why he might attract followers. He's loaded, and fairly attractive.


What's the name of the song on the promo?


The Mentalist is one of th last great show left to have a storyline that last more then a couple of days its going to be a sad day when the show wraps up the Red John storyline
