The Mentalist: Did Rigsby and Van Pelt Finally Say "I Do"?

Owain Yeoman, Amanda Righetti

[Warning: The following article contains spoilers from Sunday's episode ofThe Mentalist. Read at your own risk!]

After five seasons of on-and-off romantic tension on The Mentalist, Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) and Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti) finally tied the knot on Sunday's episode, after being inspired by another couple's wedding. (Fortunately, Rigsby and Van Pelt's nuptials weren't marred by the murder of a family member the night before, however.)

"It's been fun exploring the relationship," executive producer Daniel Cerone tells TVGuide.com. "From the beginning [creator Bruno Heller] had a plan for the show to run many years, and we didn't want to get them together permanently too soon, because we wanted to sort of play all the drama that exists in real relationships, in terms of missteps and mistakes and failures and fears. And we feel like we've really mined that over the years, and mined it honestly."

So what finally made them take the plunge, and how long will the newlyweds' honeymoon period last? Check out our full interview with Cerone to get answers to those burning questions and more:

Mentalist Boss Bruno Heller Breaks Down the Red John Suspects

Simon Baker, Robin Tunney

It's the beginning of the end for the Red John story line on CBS' The Mentalist. Creator Bruno Heller has promised that the case which has plagued Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) since Season 1 will be solved this year. And based on the Season 6 premiere, Heller and Co. aren't wasting any time in getting to the conclusion.

"We've never really started a season with this kind of situation in which our guys are very, very close to the bad guy, but the bad guy knows exactly as much as they do," Heller tells TVGuide.com. "It's an interesting chess position that they're both in as we start. ... In this first episode, Lisbon is dealing with the fact that Jane for the first time doesn't seem to know what to do next. And that scares the hell out of her."

We asked Heller to make a case for each of the seven suspects. "All of those guys have reasons to hide aspects of their personality," he says. "It's just a question of whether they're hiding for ordinary prosaic reasons or for sinister, evil reasons."

So, how will NCIS actually write Ziva's exit from the show? — Samantha
ADAM:
Given that Ziva was one of three agents who resigned to protect Gibbs, it actually won't be that far-fetched. The season will open with a two-parter that features Colin Hanks returning to threaten Gibbs, prompting a team reunion. "Ziva is out in the ether and Tony has to go off and find her," executive producer Gary Glasbgerg says. "The second episode is really all about Tony and Ziva, and, I hope, delivers all the things the Tiva fans are going to want." Adds Michael Weatherly: "The will they/won't they is answered. Tony's going to be forced to face this Sword of Damocles that's been hanging over him since Season 3." That's Greek for "they're totally gonna do it," right? ... read more

Exclusive Mentalist Postmortem: Robin Tunney Breaks Down the Big Red John Reveal

And then there were seven.

The Mentalist finale: Who is Red John?

As promised, The Mentalist's Season 5 finale found Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) narrowing down the list of people who could possibly be his serial killer nemesis Red John to just seven names. But in a final twist and display of power, Red John "changed the game" by predicting — in the form of a video message from the now-dead Lorelei Martins (Emmanuelle Chriqui) no less! — which seven names Jane was going to end with. He also shared this parting threat: "I'm going to start killing again, often. Until you catch me, or I catch you."

Creator Bruno Heller insists that one of these suspects is indeed Red John... read more
