Devlin says the writers considered the "Moonlighting Curse" before agreeing to pair up Nate (Timothy Hutton) and Sophie (Gina Bellman). "It was a big, well-talked-out decision and we were very nervous about the idea," Devlin tells TVGuide.com. "Every season, we've tried to end the season as though it's our last. So we thought if last season was our last, we wanted them to be together. But we also threw in a big "Whoops!" at the end when they realize they're in bed together."
And that "whoops" will drive the early part of Season 4, as Nate and Sophie try to keep the secret from the rest of the team. In the season premiere ...

I just watched The Mentalist finale again, and I have no idea what they're going to do next season. Any clues? — Chris
ADAM: It's simple: Jane will claim that he killed Red John in self-defense after he learned that Red John was communicating with his mole, Agent O'Loughlin. (We all saw the gun and the phone call, right?) Not so fast, says series creator Bruno Heller. "Not only is there no cell phone with any calls from an FBI Agent named O'Loughlin, but no gun will be found [by the police]," he says, hinting that someone is still pulling the strings. "Within five minutes of the season-opener, Jane is in jail for homicide with no way out. And he and Lisbon, to some extent, start questioning his sanity." There we go — the insanity defense!

In the exclusive preview clip of the episode below, Coop (Peter Facinelli) strolls into the nurse's wing carrying his suit and tie for his nuptials. "Tuxedo, locked and loaded," he tells Jackie (Edie Falco), who barely cracks a smile. (Apparently she doesn't like being on cake duty.)

"I'm not a sociopath," Walker jokes with TVGuide.com of her latest character, homicide detective Gloria Sheppard. "That's always a plus."
Homicidal tendencies excluded, this role does feel a bit familiar for Walker, who also starred for three seasons as an FBI consultant on NBC's crime drama Profiler. "I just have that cop gene going on," Walker says with a laugh...
