I uploaded 08 LQ promotional images from “The Mentalist” 6×12 “Golden Hammer” episode to the image archive. Enjoy!
The Mentalist’s 6×11 “White Lines” episode airs Sunday, Januray 5, 2014.
If you thought The Mentalist 2.0 was done with the introductions, think again. EW has learned that the second half of the season, which kicks off Jan. 5, will see the introduction of a new boyfriend for Lisbon (Robin Tunney)!
“In order for her to fulfill herself — even if she eventually fulfills herself with Jane, which she may or may not do — she has to find other relationships, other perspectives, other people who love her, just to feel fully who she is,” executive producer Bruno Heller says. “It’s very important for her to be able to step away from Jane and see herself for herself.”
Lisbon’s new beau, who is not currently cast, is set to appear in episode 15 or 16.
The news surely comes to the sadness of some fans who are eager to see Lisbon and Jane (Simon Baker) take their friendship to more, um, official levels. But Heller says they’re far from done exploring those two characters as a pair. In fact, the episode “Golden Hammer,” tentatively set to air Jan. 12, will show “a new side of the relationship between Jane and Lisbon.”
“White Lines” — The FBI is tasked with finding the killer of several DEA agents, and Jane goes on a date with a beautiful woman associated with the case, on THE MENTALIST, Sunday, Jan. 5 (10:00–11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
CHEAT TWEET: Things really have changed! Jane is going on a date! Where will it lead? #TheMentalist 1/5 10PM #CBS
Below you find a new sneak peek for the upcoming “The Mentalist” episode, 6×10 “Green Thumb”. Do NOT watch if you don’t like spoilers.
What does one do when a goal that has consumed them for so long is finally accomplished? We have followed a character on a journey for five and a half years. What are we left with when the destination is finally reached?
The Mentalist is a story about a man who loses everything, and as a result, needs to find a new purpose in life. That purpose becomes revenge. When revenge is obtained, does this man again find himself without purpose? My favorite moment in the previous episode is a subtle one: Immediately after Red John’s death, Jane stares down at the pistol in his hand. He raises it. There is a short moment of contemplation. What now? What’s left?
What’s fascinating about “My Blue Heaven” is its exploration of that very question. What is left for Jane? It’s rare that a show has the opportunity to drastically redefine itself in a single episode. Simon Baker directed this episode, and he served as a perfect fit due to his proven ability to push our show past its boundaries in exciting and creative ways. As his assistant, I was delighted to be able to carefully observe every step of this episode’s creation. There was no question that the audience would be at a loss for what to expect after the previous episode. Simon and Tom Szentgyorgyi (writer/executive producer) spent a lot of time making sure this episode would properly address this.
