'The Mentalist' creator talks Red John's reveal and what's next for Jane

After five-plus seasons of "The Mentalist," Patrick Jane will finally catch up with Red John, the serial killer who murdered his family, in Sunday's (Nov. 24) episode.That raises a couple of big questions, the first of which is what happens then? And then, what happens next? If Jane (Simon Baker) achieves his goal of killing Red John, where does he -- and where does the show -- go from there?Series creator Bruno Heller is obviously not answering the first question before the episode airs. As for the second one, he says he's happy with the direction the show takes afterward."It felt very much to all of us like that chapter of the story was done," Heller said earlier this week on a conference call with reporters. "Frankly, I think the great asset and value of the show is in Baker's head and what he does. Red John never even appears as a character, physically, until... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/the-mentalist-creator-talks-red-johns-reveal-and-whats-next-for-jane.html

'The Mentalist': Who is Red John? Leave your last-minute conspiracy theories!

This Sunday (Nov. 24), "The Mentalist" will reveal once and for all the identity of Red John, the serial killer who murdered Patrick Jane's (Simon Baker) family. Although Jane asserted in a press conference during "The Great Red Dragon" that Red John is actually CBI director Gale Bertram, the killer's actual identity is still very much up in the air. The list of seven is still in play, so let's go through a couple of the conspiracy theories claiming that each of the men are Red John.

TV ratings: 'Almost Human' has decent premiere and the NFL wins another Sunday

Fast National ratings for Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013The debut of "Almost Human" on FOX Sunday drew decent numbers, but it also lost a good amount of its NFL lead-in and dropped off some in its second half. Still, it ranks among the better drama premieres of the fall, and FOX says it was the highest-rated entertainment program of the night among women 18-49.Also Sunday, a highly anticipated "Sunday Night Football" matchup between Kansas City and Denver drew big numbers for NBC. "The Mentalist" had its biggest total audience since its season premiere, and "Revenge" and "Betrayal" were up a little bit for ABC. "Once Upon a Time," however, took a little bit of a hit.NBC scored 20.8 million viewers and an 11.9 rating/18 share in households for the night, double the 10.4 million and 6.0/9 for second-place FOX. (Both networks' numbers will be adjusted for live broadcasts.) CBS (10 million, 6.3/10) came in third, and... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/tv-ratings-almost-human-has-decent-premiere-and-the-nfl-wins-another-sunday.html

'The Mentalist': 'The Great Red Dragon' writer on the big bombshells and what comes next

Sunday's (Nov. 17) episode of "The Mentalist" dropped not one, but two huge developments on viewers. The first is Jane's (Simon Baker) assertion that CBI director Gale Bertram (Michael Gaston) is Red John -- and the evidence we see in the episode certainly seems to point that way. The second is that, with Bertram and the Blake Association -- the name for the law-enforcement conspiracy plaguing California -- exposed, the FBI comes in and essentially shuts down the CBI. The bureau even moves out Jane's couch and breaks his favorite coffee cup. It's a whole lot to process, so much that we decided to call in an expert. Jordan Harper wrote "The Great Red Dragon" -- it's his ninth script for the series -- and talks to Zap2it about what happened, and what's to come in next week's episode, titled "Red John."Zap2it: What was the impetus for wanting to end the Red John arc early... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/the-mentalist-the-great-red-dragon-writer-on-the-big-bombshells-and-what-comes-next.html
