|PROMO| 5.22 - Red John's Rules (Season Finale) - Patrick Jane Zeroes in on Red John

THR debuts a new promo for the May 5 hour, which will reveal the seven suspects in Jane's search for Red John.

Is Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) getting closer to finding out who Red John is?

That's a question that will be answered in the May 5 season finale. The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts the teaser for the hourlong episode, "Red John's Rules," during which Jane finally reveals his list of seven suspects.

For the past few weeks, CBS has unveiled 10 possible names on the show's website, with the final 10 names going up April 29. With 30 suspects to choose from, which seven will be on the hook by season's end?

As Jane looks over yet another crime scene, he's positive the culprit is Red John. How? "Because when it's him, I can feel it." Jane knows the Red John case like the back of his hand, and when it's brought up that Red John will always be one step ahead, Jane is quick to offer a rebuttal: "We'll see."

CBS will release a shorter promo following this Sunday's episode.

Who do you think are the seven likely suspects?

|SPOILER| Amanda Righetti short interview

The Mentalist star Amanda Righetti has confessed she sometimes feels desensitised to the disturbing issues of death and grief the show deals with.

Simon Baker stars in the hit US crime drama as mentalist Patrick Jane, who uses his unique insight into the human psyche to help solve crimes, and Amanda plays Special Agent Grace Van Pelt, the newest member of the investigation team.

Amanda said: "It's funny because sometimes we get desensitised to it because we are doing it week in week out, but people who are dealing with these kind of issues, it's really sad, and any kind of support system you can offer I think is great."

The actress also revealed a massive spoiler for the new season of the show - that they will finally catch serial killer Red John, who murdered Jane's wife and daughter. Amanda said: "Season 6 apparently they're going to catch Red John. Seriously, that's what I heard. I don't know if I'm allowed to tell you. I don't know who he is. But apparently we catch him!"

|SPOILER| The Mentalist's (Second) Biggest Mystery Solved! Plus: Is Closure for Another Storyline Coming?

This Sunday at 10/9c, CBS’ The Mentalist will at long last solve a mystery — one not involving Red John so much as… a beige plastic bowl. That’s right: We are about to find out what J.J. LaRoche is hiding in the Tupperware container.

The mysterious tub was first alluded to in the procedural’s Season 3 finale, when Jane — having had a thief break into the home of the CBI’s Internal Affairs boss — leveraged the discovery of said item and its contents in a trade for a list of RJ suspects. Executive producer Daniel Cerone, who penned Sunday’s episode, titled “Red & Itchy,” says that while some on The Mentalist’s staff were content to leave the Tupperware’s contents a mystery, he craved resolution.

“Writers will often do things or create mysteries that are handy in the moment, and a lot of times they’re story devices – the classic MacGuffin, something everyone is chasing or provides a purpose to the story. And one of the big reasons why we planted that [Tupperware idea] was… to create a way for Jane to blackmail LaRoche in that season finale,” he explains to TVLine. “Now, some of the writers on this show believed that it’s better left to the imagination. If you’ve ever heard J.J. Abrams’ TED talk, he uses mystery boxes to tell stories, and I think many of our writers would have been happy to let it lie. But I felt compelled to open it.”

But can the contents of a food storage product possibly be worthy of such drama, and such concern for LaRoche, should his secret get out?”Absolutely,” Cerone insists. “If the secret of the box were to be revealed, LaRoche’s career would come to an end.”

Having written the episode that first introduced Pruitt Vince Taylor’s character to the CBI team, Cerone says, “I’ve always been fascinated by him, because the way I wrote him he was borderline Asperger’s Syndrome, somebody who was not a social animal but very smart and very driven. And what this episode does is turn a card over. And by the end of it, Jane and LaRoche go on a bit of a journey together. We learn some secrets about LaRoche that help us understand him better down the road” — including why he become an IA officer.

While we wouldn’t dare disclose here what lies inside, Cerone says that the matter of whether the contents required an airtight container “is one of the questions the episode explores,” and that the answer is “definitely darker-themed.” He also shares that while viewers will be let in on the secret, Jane will continue to keep it under wraps.

But the Tupperware tale is not the only storyline getting some resolution this Sunday. Reiterating that he is “someone who doesn’t like loose ends,” Cerone says the episode afforded an opportinity to tie up two of ‘em. “There’s another storyline that this episode will also close,” he teases. “It’s an open-ended storyline that occurred earlier this season and that I’m sure people thought wed had forgotten about, but we have not.”

Oh yeah, and the same episode also features a case to be cracked, though it’s almost incidental. “There’s a dead body at the beginning of the episode, but that mystery is solved by the end of Act 1,” Cerone says. “The driving mystery is what’s in the box.”

|SPOILER| Matt's Inside Line: Season Finale scoop


Matt, please, you’re our last hope. We’re dying to know a spoiler for this year’s season finale of The Mentalist. – Danny 
I recently spoke to exec producer Daniel Cerone, who penned the April 28 episode that reveals the contents of LaRoche’s Tupperware (!), and while he had no direct hand in the May 5 season finale, I coaxed this tidbit out of him: “Put it this way: By the end of the season and into next season, the hunt for Red John becomes real. And names will be named.”
