The Mentalist Season 6: What We Hope to See

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...

I'm moving over to the new Season 6 promo page here at TVFanatic.


Ok folks.....does the promo shake you up a bit. Red John's voice saying Teresa cant come to the phone right now...yukkkk
Hope that arc is only a teaser to get us worked up! I dont know why I think it, but the voice sounds like Jack Plotnick's character....the forensic tech, Partridge. He has had some some weird/creepy roles. I've seen him in a movie where he played a woman. He was pretty clever. Some other things were pretty crass. I dont know why this guy isn't better known. He teaches acting even. Maybe his "B" movies are holding him back. How about it......just a little over a month to wait. Only negative thing about that is that the cooler autumn weather will be coming. Oh well.....will just start adding sweaters.


So it's going to be : Red John- the Final Chapter!


yep, I think this is the last season too, even though I feel the series has a lot of potential after Red John, but....who knows!!


Saw the promo's, man this is going to be a long four weeks! Looks like this is the last season too.


Dexter Haven, if Jane tries to save Erica Flynn he needs his head checked! Why would he even care. She made her bed, now let her sleep in it. That's just like Lorelei, let her get what she has coming. Jane has other problems right now and Flynn wouldn't even be a foot note!


Yes @creamy The new promo and the promo pictures for the premiere episode are really intriguing and I'm sure hide as much as they tell! But it's so much fun to take them apart!


The beautiful, beguiling, man-slaughterer Morena Baccarin (aka Erica Flynn)was last seen basking near a far-away tropical beach while talking on the phone to Patrick. Fast forward. Patrick receives yet another letter from Red John. The letter contains minute traces of DNA which proves to be Erica Flynn's blood. Patrick sets out to track her down. Is it a rescue or a trap?


hi all!read your scenarios...hmm very very nice.But I'm afraid Bruno is far more dramatic and mysterious, we won't get to enjoy too much Jane and Lisbon relationship.We'll get some bits but not too much just to keep us waiting.How about Jane disappearing after Red John aftermath and after a huge argument with Lisbon, and returning later but dear Lisbon will be involved in a ..relationship with someone else.Maybe someone from her new team...


I dunno. Organizing a women/children's center doesn't seem like a Jane thing to do. I'd rather he enjoy the house as his ocean refuge. Just me.
