The Mentalist Photo Preview: Mapping It Out

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When The Mentalist returns, Lisbon will officially sign on to the FBI, while Kimball Cho and Jane will all get to work together once again. 

Hooray... right?

But as the team investigate whether a high end cartographer stumbled onto a conspiracy on The Mentalist Season 6 Episode 12, Rigsby and Van Pelt will uncover something unsettling in their own separate investigation.

And who is the man Teresa is sharing dinner with in these pictures? Is this just part of the case...or her new boyfriend?

Check out the photos from the installment airing Sunday, January 12 and don't forget you can always catch up and watch The Mentalist online here at TV Fanatic.

I wouldn't waste time on anything Mike says. I think it's as Em Wright says, wishful thinking on Mike's part. Maybe the show will be cancelled, maybe it won't. Historically, network heads have cancelled hit shows for the stupidest reasons and continued failing shows for equally stupid reasons. An actor/producer/creator or any other element could insult a network executive and next thing you know the show is axed. Those executives are such delicate flowers with easily bruised egos. That is why I find it best to enjoy a show but not to expect or put too much interest in any one show.

Mike,
Why do you say the show is being cancelled? And then follow it up by the show is done? Is that wishful thinking on your part? It looks as if the Mentalist will win the People's choice awards. The ratings on IMDB are still 8.1 and the time-slot on CBS is so variable on Sunday, but the show still holds its own. The re-boot looks great and opens the doors to all sorts of shenanigans. Perhaps this show is to subtle for you ....

I hope it's not cancelled. It was a really good show last night. It came on at the time it was surpose to. I love the new set up of Jane being witht the FBI. I don't think they do. Love this show.

Sharon and Mike,
The Mentalist has NOT been cancelled! To paraphrase one of my favorite movies, "It's not dead yet!"

So sorry to hear The Mentalist has been cancelled. Hey, Fox or so other station, please pick this show up, it's great. CBS put it on Sunday night so no one could watch it at a decent time.

These photos give me hope that this will be a fun episode as Jane continues to yank the FBI's chain. It would be cool if the whole CBI team gets together, but since there are no pictures of that, they may just consult by phone or computer. Sharon, I feel your frustration about the show's flexible start times. I set my DVR to record two and a half hours, at least. That has worked for me this year. Mike, the show has not been cancelled, despite CBS's apparent efforts to sabotage the ratings. Theresa is eating with Ardiles, and it's extremely unlikely this is her 'boyfriend', as he insulted her leadership abilities a few years ago. They must be meeting about this conspiracy. I don't want to wish away my last week of vacation, but come on, Sunday!

@ North Coast

That is definitely Ardiles, so they must be back in Sacramento for a case. Lisbon's body language and facial expressions say business meeting to me and the toast looks like a business toast, settling past differences (and those were kind of ugly, not at all romantic). Ardilies' expression looks kind of resigned and regretful to me. Anyway, you don't really toast a romantic liaison like that, ha!

The Mentalist is a great show. CBS has it listed in the 9 p.m. Central time slot, which puts it at any where from 9:30 to 11 p.m. You can't tape it, because you get the news. I really like this show. It deserves more respect.

Watch it online the next day. That's what I do.
