The Mentalist Spoilers On the Exit of VanPelt and Rigsby
Here’s the Spoilers For The Mentalist From Michael Ausiello’s Ask Ausiello at TVLine on August 13th, 2013.
Question: How will Van Pelt and Rigsby be written out of The Mentalist? Also, how many Season 6 episodes will they appear in? —Chloe
Ausiello: Let me tackle your second question first. According to sources, Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman will appear in more than a dozen episodes before departing the CBS procedural in the spring. As far as how they’ll exit, series creator Bruno Heller would only say that the conclusion of the Red John chapter this fall will launch The Mentalist — and specifically Jane — on a bold new course. “I’ve always wondered how the show would go on from that,” Heller muses. “Once Moby Dick has been killed, what happens next? You have to tell the story about how Patrick gets back to shore. He’s been out of sea hunting this creature for so long, I think people will want to know what happens to him after that. Does he live happily ever after? What happens when you’ve been searching for something as long as he has? We are going to get into that. It would be cheating the audience not to tell them what happens after. We have a great story for that saga, because it begins a whole new saga. Where does he go from there? How does he live with what he’s done? Can he find happiness? All of those are big questions we are going to explore.”
The Mentalist returns with episode 6×01 The Desert Rose on Sunday Sep. 29th, 2013 10/9c on CBS.
