If you watch The Mentalist on CBS, you should already know who I’m talking about. If not, Red John is the man who murdered Patrick Jane’s family before the series began. So when will viewers be able to see Red John? The answer?
The SERIES finale. Sure that is most likely not this season, but maybe next season? The Creator of The Mentalist, Bruno Heller: “It’s something that will run throughout the series — it’s a series ender, not a season ender. There’s lot of wrinkles and twists down that path before we get to it. It’s the epic underpinning of the series that gives it weight. It’s the plot version of the darkness inside the lead character and it’s important it remain a part of the show.” The series finale isnt writen just yet, but Heller says this: “I got the bones of it, yeah. I know where I’m taking it.”
