For six seasons, fans of The Mentalist have been rooting for Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) to find the elusive Red John, the man who murdered his wife and daughter a decade ago. Through the years, the producers have offered clues and even narrowed down the suspect pool to seven people Jane had already met. On Sunday, the California Bureau of Investigation consultant will finally catch up with the dangerous killer who leaves as his signature a smiley face drawn in the blood of his victims.
In last week's episode, Red John's identity was revealed as Gale Bertram (Michael Gaston), the CBI chief. This week, an intense manhunt ensues, but there may be more to the story, warned executive producer Bruno Heller during a press call. Heller said he decided to end the mystery now so that the rest of the series can examine how Jane moves on with his life without this mission being the priority. The series jumps two years in the episode that airs on Dec. 1, featuring new sets and a new direction for Jane. (Credit today.com)
