Amanda Righett Reveals Upcoming Storylines on The Mentalist

at . Comments

The Mentalist returns with a new episode on March 17.

In the meantime, let's hope scoop on the show from star Amanda Righetti - who plays Grace Van Pelt - will hold over anxious fans.

"They are planning to play a lot with the budding relationship between Grace and Wayne. But it is always two steps forward and four steps back in terms of my character’s love life," the actress told Entertainment Weekly.

Patrick and Grace

As for Patrick Jane, seen above with Grace? Righetti said:

"One episode that we recently shot has a case where he is temporarily blind. That was a lot of fun to shoot. Without giving away too much, Simon [Baker] plays it to the hilt."

The Mentalist Quotes

Jane: I was hoping to dazzle you all with my uncanny detective skills, but you forced me, you forced me to reveal the humdrum facts and point out that you have blood on your shoes, Heather.
Lisbon: Can you step out of your shoes ma'am?
Jane: Stop the presses! That's the phrase right, stop the presses? Always wanted to say that.

Patrick: You don't like the way I drive, you despise it.
Teresa: You drive way too fast.
Patrick: I drive just fast enough. You hate not being the one in control and yet you're willing to overcome your irrational fears to cheer me up. That's a beautiful thing, Lisbon. Thank you, I'd love to drive.
Teresa: Never mind.
