The Mentalist Casting for Recurring Patrick Jane Love Interest

at . Comments

After another failed attempt to defeat Red John, Patrick Jane hits rock bottom, finds a lover and shoots one of his own.

So reads the official CBS description for The Mentalist season four finale, which airs on Thursday, May 17. And while there's plenty one can ponder from that single sentence, let's focus for a moment on a new character set to come on board the CBS hit: that aforementioned lover.

The series is casting as we type for Lorelai, described in notes as a intelligent Las Vegas cocktail waitress "with a heart of gold."

Just how smitten will Jane become with this new love interest? She is scheduled to appear in the finale and also in at least five season five episodes.

The Mentalist, meanwhile, returns from a two-week break and airs "Pink Champagne on Ice" tomorrow night. Watch a clip of Jane meeting an old friend from it above.

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.
