“The Mentalist‘s” 100th episode has aired and the team that makes the popular Simon Baker drama has made it clear that this season, they’re going to get closer to solving the central mystery of Red John – the serial killer that took the lives of Simon’s character’s wife and child. Does all that indicate that Simon and series creator Bruno Heller are envisioning an ending for the series?
Not according to leading lady Robin Tunney.
“I think it’s a creative conversation,” she says, speaking of the show in general and the Red John storyline in particular. “I feel like they’ll go along as long as the audience wants to, as long as they keep it interesting and not too frustrating. Historically, with television, people will get on the bandwagon with something and then it’s very clear when they’ve given up,” she continues. “Everybody wanted to know who killed Laura Palmer in ‘Twin Peaks’ – but it went to a certain point and then everyone turned on (creator) David Lynch. I think there’s a certain point where you resolve something when the audience needs it.”
According to Robin, Heller and the other writer-producers “read everything that’s written about the show, I think. Bruno actually reads letters that people send in. I think they are genuinely curious. Both Bruno and Simon are really into what the fans think and sort of servicing them.”
I added 99 HQ DVD screen captures of Robin in “Prison Break” 1×04 “Cute Poison”. In this episode Michael gets more of the tools and people he needs, but someone very high up has taken notice and started wondering what he’s up to.
I always loved Robin as Veronica in PB. It’s a pity she just stayed for one season, but luckily we have her back on TV as our lovely Lisbon in “The Mentalist“. Enjoy the caps.

First off all, happy 100th episode to the amazing cast and crew, and especially to Robin for being an awesome and very talented actress. Can’t believe it’s already been 100 episode of “The Mentalist“. Hopefully, we’ll see Robin and her co-stars in many more episodes and seasons.
Well, I added 181 HD screen captures of the 100th episode, 5×05 “Red Dawn”, to the photo gallery. Check them out! Robin looks so cute with her short hair again. Reminds me of good, old episodes.

Below you’ll find a short synopsis about the plot of “The Mentalist” 5×07 “If It Bleeds, It Leads” episode and thumbnail links to the promo images. Spoiler alert!
“If It Bleeds, It Leads” — The team investigates the murder of a reporter who may have become too close to her story, while Jane insists on pursuing his own leads to find Lorelei, on THE MENTALIST, Sunday, Nov. 11 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost”) guest stars as Tommy Volker, a multi-millionaire adventurer playboy who becomes a suspect. Ted McGinley guest stars as Ed Hunt, a news anchor who worked with the victim.
I found out that I the gallery didn’t include two promo images of “The Mentalist” 5×06 “Cherry Picked” episode. I added those to the two episode stills that already had been added to the image archive. Check them out, but be aware that they include spoilers!
