The Mentalist Creator Spills Season Finale Secrets

at . Comments

As the first season of The Mentalist comes to a close, fans of the number-one new series on TV want to know:

Will Patrick Jane capture Red John over the next few weeks?

Simply put: no, he won't.

Red John's Nemesis

But show creator Bruno Heller told E! Online that Alicia Witt guest stars in the season finale (with a "brilliant, moving and profound performance") as a "woman who has had a relationship with Red John."

The CBI discovers this fact during the course of its investigation of the serial killer that took out Jane's family.

"They hope she's going to be the key to finding Red John," said Heller. "It turns out... that she can't."

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.
