The sixth season of CBS' The Mentalist marked a turning point for the show, wrapping up the Red John story line and subsequently jumping ahead two years.
The moment Mentalist fans have been waiting for for six seasons has arrived. Will Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon's (Robin Tunney) professional partnership finally turn into something more on Sunday's season finale?
Well ... that's up to Lisbon to decide. Her options: Accompany new boyfriend Marcus Pike (Pedro Pascal) to Washington, D.C. and accept his marriage proposal, or stay behind with Jane, who hasn't exactly tried to sweep her off her feet.
"It's a big decision," Tunney tells TVGuide.com.
On Sunday's episode of The Mentalist, Jane (Simon Baker) and the crew uncover a vast human smuggling ring after an encounter with a suspicious-looking stranger. But how can they prove who's involved?

Wayne Rigsby and Grace Van Pelt have left the building — for good.
Sunday's episode of The Mentalist marked a harrowing farewell to the characters played by Owain Yeoman and Amanda Righetti, who have been series regulars since the CBS drama debuted in 2008.
"I feel very satisfied that we gave the characters the conclusion that we did," Yeoman tells TVGuide.com. "We chose both the most satisfying but also the most practical way of ending their characters."
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.
