Here’s Heller talking for the first time about last week’s shocker finale, where Patrick Jane gunned down in cold blood his longtime serial killer nemesis in a shopping mall (clip below).

The Mentalist - And Red John Is...

SPOILER ALERT—STOP READING NOW IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE! Simon Baker's Patrick Jane finally came face-to-face with the madman who slaughtered his family — and the culprit perfectly embodied the phrase "the banality of evil." Casting the always-likable Bradley Whitford (the West Wing vet just starred in a show called The Good Guys , for cripes' sake!) as the chillingly cruel serial killer was a masterstroke. "You expected me to have warts?" Red John, if it was in fact him, taunted the man he's haunted for years. "I'm not a monster." //www.tvguide.com/News/Cheers-Jeers-Mentalist-1033353.aspx?rss=breakingnews

The Mentalist's Amanda Righetti Thinks About That Crazy Finale

No contest. Patrick Jane killing Red John was the shocker event of The Mentalist 's season ender Thursday night. But RJ wasn't the only corpse left lying there when the dust settled. In another stunning development, FBI agent Craig O'Laughlin (Eric Winter) was revealed to be Red John's mole and he, too, was shot dead, leaving his fiancée, CBI agent Grace Van Pelt, with some major trust issues. "This is a life-changing, mind-bending experience for Van Pelt," says creator-exec producer Bruno Heller. "She will certainly come back next fall very damaged in some ways, but in other ways she will come out of this stronger and more ferocious." Oh, yeah? Tell that to Amanda Righetti, the flame-haired beauty who plays Van Pelt. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the actress, who doesn't know what to think about her character's crappy luck with men. //www.tvguide.com/News/Mentalist-Amanda-Righetti-1033352.aspx?rss=breakingnews

But wasn't Jane's vengeful pursuit of Red John his raison d'être and the very point of this series? How could the plot wrap up so soon? Then again, did Jane kill the real Red John? Whether he did or he didn't, he's in deep doo-doo. "Patrick has just murdered a man in cold blood in front of hundreds of people and next season he will be tried in court," creator Bruno Heller tells us. "We won't dodge any issues. Patrick won't wake up and discover it was all a dream. There will be consequences."
