In its inaugural season, The Mentalist tells the tale of Patrick Jane, an independent detective working for the California Bureau of Investigation. Prior to working for the CBI, Jane made a living as a fake psychic. However, the course of his life was altered when his wife and daughter were killed by serial killer, Red John, who is now Patrick Jane's sworn enemy. Jane now uses his skills as a Mentalist to help the CBI solve cases. The CBI team he works with consists of Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon, and Agents Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby and rookie Agent, Grace Van Pelt.

In this season, the Red John case was reassigned to Agent Sam Bosco and his team. Jane bugged Bosco's office to keep up to date with the case. However, things went bad when Red John decided he missed Jane, and he convinced Bosco's assistant to murder Bosco and his team. With the CBI already hurting at the lost of three of their own, Director Minelli handed in his resignation and a new boss, Madeline Hightower, was brought in to replace him. Meanwhile, Rigsby and Van Pelt finally gave in to their feelings for one another and began 'secretly' dating (okay everyone knew but Lisbon). When Hightower found out, she gave RigsPelt an ultimatum, end it or one of them has to leave the unit. Rigsby decided he loved Van Pelt enough to want to transfer out of the unit, but Van Pelt didn't feel the same way. She sent Rigsby packing and both agents remained on the team. Red John managed to make an appearance in the season finale, saving Jane's life and kidnapping Jane's potential new love interest, psychic Kristina Frye.


The Mentalist Season Three

In it's third season, The Mentalist returned with a lot of excitement. We met Patrick Jane's brother-in-law when he was mixed up in a murder. Van Pelt fell in love with FBI Agent, Craig O'Laughlin, got engaged but never made it to the altar. Her fiance was a pawn in Red John's plans and he used Van Pelt, getting killed in the season finale. Poor Rigsby was mending his broken heart, but finally admitted he was still in love with Van Pelt. CBI Director, Madeleine Hightower, was framed for a murder she didn't commit and went on the run with her two children. New Director, LaRoche, butted heads with Lisbon, even demoting her and promoting Cho (for one episode), but it all worked out in the end. The season ending cliffhanger brought Red John face-to-face with Patrick Jane. In a shocking finale, Patrick Jane killed Red John.


The Mentalist Season Four





Season four of The Mentalist returns in September 2011 (in the U.S. at 10/9c) on Thursday nights. With the season ending cliffhanger of Patrick Jane killing Red John, Van Pelt's fiance being a mole and Lisbon getting shot, we are left with a lot of questions. What will happen to Jane? How will Van Pelt grieve the loss of her fiance AND being used? Will there be any long-lasting effects from Lisbon being shot? Will Hightower get her job back now that she's been cleared? Is this the end of LaRoche? So many questions... is it September yet?
