The Mentalist Season 6: What We Hope to See

by at . Comments

September 29th feels like it's a long way off. Mostly because it is. And as much as we enjoy summer, the cool breezes of autumn and our favorite shows returning with new episodes weigh heavy on our minds.

So since we have to wait another 80-plus days for the season premiere of The Mentalist, we decided to make a list.

Read on, TV Fanatics, and see if our hopes and dreams for The Mentalist Season 6 match yours. Vote for what you'd most like to see happen come fall and don't forget to share your thoughts and add anything we've missed in the comments below.

Jane's Wild West

Our Mentalist Season 6 Wish List:

The Big Reveal. Yes, we finally want to know Red John's true identity. It's been five seasons. It's about time we know.

A Love Interest for Cho. One that doesn't involve a hooker, a junkie, or any other type of criminal. Someone worthy of the character we've grown to love.

More Rigsby and Van Pelt. It took a long time for these two to find their way back to one another. We're hoping to see this couple stay happy for a while.

Jisbon. That's the shipper name for Jane and Lisbon for those not in the know. A Jane / Lisbon pairing has been hinted at and teased for five seasons. It's included an I love you from Patrick that he later side stepped and many doe eyed looks for Teresa. It's about time these two had an honest conversation about how they feel for one another.

A Kiss. For those of us who don't care about the talking and want a little more action, a real kiss between this dynamic duo would make us cheer.

Casual Time. Wouldn't it be great to see the entire team spend a little more time outside the CBI?

Real Danger for Our Core Team. Show creator Bruno Heller promised that Red John will be targeting closer to home this season. We're hoping that means RJ will go after someone on Jane's immediate team. Not that we want to see Lisbon, Cho, Rigsby, or Van Pelt die at the hands of the merciless serial killer…but having one of them in serious peril will have us glued to the screen.

YOUR turn: Pick the story you're most hoping for on The Mentalist Season 6...

So Bruno Heller said in an interview that , although Red John investigation won/t have a cheery ending for anyone involved , Rigsby and Van Pelt wii celebrate before RJ case is closed.They will be husband and wife after episode 3.So they will have a happy ending.This is good!

Isabel, I have no idea why my post was repeated. This site does weird things sometimes. Mainly it locks us up occasionally in its "held for moderation" gulag. We never know why but eventually we get set free to post again.

Welcome to the site Isabel! Feel free to give you ideas and opinions about The Mentalist. Lots of variety here. Many great ideas posted. No doubt the TM writers have plans for the plot that won't even come close to the stuff we've imagined/hoped for, but it's fun working out various scenarios.

Ani I love your exuberance when you get on a roll! Yeah, I can hear Stiles saying those words. Makes me hope he really is RJ. Seems too old and too large tho, for what we know of RJ. For sure, tho, if he isn't RJ he is RJ's enabler and deserves lots of lethal torment for that. Being RJ's enabler is just as bad as being RJ.

I was lonely for a long time Patrick, until you came along. Patrick, I am a anomaly and I recognize it at an early age. I was able to do things most people could not do! Unlike you, I took control of my destiny! Don't be tormented by life and death, it means nothing........ nothing! Take life Patrick, take it! Feel the power of owning what you truely are! If you are better than life, the life that ordinary people have............step up and own it, control it! It's yours for the taking! Don't be weak! Don't be controlled......don't be less then enlightened son! Son! At last I have an heir to my throne! Join with me now......or die. Die being ordinary!

Red John is crazy and I believe he has a God complex. If it is Bret Stiles it would be in keeping with the whole visualize philosophy.
