Sons of Anarchy's bloodiest season yet delivered even more carnage on Tuesday's Season 6 finale.
After learning that Tara (Maggie Siff) took his sons, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) started a manhunt to find Tara before she could rat out the club to D.A. Patterson (CCH Pounder). However, when SAMCRO found Tara playing with her sons at the park, Jax delivered surprising news...
Meet the new Jane, same as the old Jane?
It's been three months that Patrick Jane's (Simon Baker) been in (isolated) detention on The Mentalist — during which time he apparently couldn't find a decent razor — and Abbott (Rockmond Dunbar) and Fisher (Emily Swallow) are growing impatient, champing at the bit to have Jane join their ranks at the FBI. But there's only one problem: he won't work for them unless all his demands are met, and Lisbon (Robin Tunney) is the final holdout. Fisher takes a trip to Washington to personally recruit Lisbon, who's getting increasingly frustrated with the office politics at her desk job, and convinces her to at least hear Jane out.
Will The Mentalist's Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) ever get out of detention?
On Sunday's episode, Jane has been locked up for three months because he and FBI boss Frank Abbott (Rockmond Dunbar) are at a standoff. Abbott won't let Jane out unless he agrees to work for the FBI, and Jane won't work for the agency unless all his requests are met — and that includes having Lisbon (Robin Tunney) as his partner again.

Patrick Jane isn't the only person who's eager to bring his decade-long hunt for Red John to a close on The Mentalist. Simon Baker says the conclusion of the story line, after Sunday's final showdown, is a relief for him as well.
"This last five, six months that we've been working on the show, it's been really exciting for me," Baker said on a conference call this week. "It's felt like I've had the sort of enthusiasm that I had in the first season because it's new and fresh from week to week and it's going somewhere. Sometimes the frustration for me as an actor is that we're not going anywhere, not moving forward. In this, we're definitely going somewhere, and the stakes are high and it gives me something to do that I can really get my teeth into."
