The Mentalist Series Finale Postmortem: Did Jane and Lisbon Get Their Happy Ending?

The Mentalist S07E12 & S07E13: "Brown Shag Carpet" & "White Orchids"

Well, it finally happened. Patrick Jane put a ring on it.

The Mentalist ended its seven-season run Wednesday night with a series finale that saw Jane and Teresa Lisbon tying the knot, giving fans a happy twist of an ending. How did it all come together?

Not without a few harrowing moments, of course. In the first of two hours, Jane was kidnapped by a serial killer named Keller (a.k.a. Lazarus) who was also a “blood harvester” (don't ask), and who accused Jane of lying about his mental capabilities. After Jane snooped around the room where he was being held captive, he discovered a literal (almost) skeleton in Lazarus's closet: Lazarus's father's corpse. Jane used the knowledge to convince Lazarus that he truly did have “powers,” and finally escaped after staging a fiery explosion in the house. But, twist! His abductor escaped, too.


Later, while Jane and Lisbon were enjoying a romantic afternoon at their cabin, Lisbon noticed that Jane was no longer wearing his wedding ring. “I’m not married anymore,” he said, before using the ring to propose to Lisbon and explaining to her that he wanted it to represent his past as well as his future. Aww!

Lisbon being Lisbon, she wanted a low-key justice-of-the-peace ceremony, much to the disappointment of her brothers. But after she caved and invited them to attend, the guest list snowballed until Jane and Lisbon had a full-fledged party on their hands. Abbott offered to host, Cho helped Lisbon pick out a dress (!!), and we were off to the races—or to Abbott’s, as it were.

Of course, Lazarus was still on the loose— and looking to wrap up his unfinished business with Jane by crashing the wedding, apparently. Who else was en route to Austin for the festivities? Lisbon’s whole family, with approximately 47 kids in tow, as well as Rigsby and Van Pelt! It was all a bit overwhelming for Lisbon, who broke down into tears and said she just wanted to elope. Jane thought eloping was a great idea—especially since it would give them a way to dodge Keller.

Just as Lisbon and Jane were about to enjoy what looked to be a quiet wedding at the cabin, Keller—who'd hidden in the trunk of the officiant’s car—showed up. But they were expecting him, and a team of FBI agents (plus Lisbon, looking totally badass as she wielded a gun in her wedding dress) descended upon him. On with the show!


After a quick exchange of vows, the party began in earnest—with dancing and selfies aplenty, set to the strains of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September.” Plus, we were treated to a great reveal in the final moments: Lisbon telling Jane she’s pregnant!

I chatted with series star Robin Tunney and creator Bruno Heller to get a breakdown of the series finale. Read the full interview below to find out how the writers settled on the ending, and to hear Tunney’s (promptly rejected) idea for the final scene.


When was the decision made to have Jane and Lisbon get married in the finale?

Bruno Heller: The romance between Jane and Lisbon kind of developed organically and naturally without anyone really thinking about it, to some degree. The beauty of being on the air for seven years is that the characters, in a very real way, become real. The love and family feeling on the set simply had to be transferred onto the screen. ... If we got the chance to end the show exactly as we wanted to do as opposed to hearing after the fact that we don’t get another season, I always wanted to end with a very sincere and sunny, happy ending. Because that's what stories are for.

Robin Tunney: It never happens in life. It’s got to happen on TV. [Laughs] ... It does give you an ending and it does give you an idea of what these people’s lives are going to be after. An ambiguous ending, after this much commitment, [would be] hard. We owed it to [fans] to let them have some sort of security in the future of what was going to happen to these people.



It was great to see Rigsby and Van Pelt again.

Tunney: It was so perfect! There was no acting involved. You're so happy to see the people [again]. It was great.


Bruno, now that you're also acting as the showrunner on Gotham, how much of a hand did you have in the finale?

Heller: This season has been very much more in the hands of Tom Szentgyorgyi, who’s been there pretty much almost from the start. He took over the writers' room for this season, and a lot of the credit for the new sort of sunny tone that we were able to put into the show this season is owed to him and the other writers. But, for the finale, it was very much a collaborative effort between me and Tom and Jordan Harper.



Robin, you said you had an idea for an ending that you pitched to the writing team?

Tunney: It was the worst idea ever. Clearly it’s why I’m not a writer. Fans would have been furious. I just thought he should ask and then it should just cut and you don’t know. Leave it sort of ambiguous. It would have been the worst idea ever. [Laughs] These poor people have followed the show for this long. Give them an ending! I’m mean-spirited, I guess.

Heller: That’s nothing. [Simon] Baker was saying, hey, how about we machine-gun them all as they're standing at the altar? It was like, 'Uh, we’ll think about that one.' He was joking, of course—but only to a degree.


Robin, you've said previously that Teresa Lisbon is so defined by her work. What do you think changed in her that made her accept Jane’s proposal?

Tunney: So much of her life has been dictated by the ambition of her job and sort of living in a man’s world. The idea of giving that all up for love feels scary. ... It’s been an ongoing thing, and [Jane] really does want to go and have this other life together. ... [Now] she has something else, like a reason to go home. I think that’s really amazing, and through that, she became more of a well-rounded human being. It was fun as an actor to see that there was a different side to her.


What did you think of The Mentalist's series finale?

Patrick Jane was RJ. Look back and you will see. He manipulated everyone. He planned everything. He killed his wife and child. He is a sociopath. They would never let it play out because of the public backlash they would receive. They gave viewers the happy ending that they wanted.

Totally agree man, even through one or two of the episodes I thought is this RJ showing himself again, if she didn't marry him will go off the rails. The bits where he disappeared n all that. I think you're right, they buckled under the pressure man. I wish they would have left something in the last episode just a clue that says yes they're happy but.... like a little smiley face on a piece of paper in his airstream trailer or something. That would have been brilliant. The rounding out of the RJ story line was so weak after everything that had been hinted that it stank of re write and was quite disappointing. I think that is what ended the show in season 7 rather than it continuing on and having that little dark element in the background. It was such a good good show in the early series as well.

Although I'm really going to miss The Mentalist, I thought they did a great job on the finale. Very satisfying ending.

I didn't like Lisbon's wedding dress, though. I thought Cho was going to help her make a better choice. I did, however, like that Cho kind of softened, and we could see that he really cared about his friends.

Reading the comments made me feel like some people misunderstood the RJ plot. I think that Jane have mentioned many times that he never cared about RJ's brain or about the organization or any of this. The hole journey since episode one was about Jane's revenge. He just wanted RJ DEAD. End of story! And when that happened I was glad that it was the end of RJ story!
I loved the finale and how Jane and Lisbon have a future together!
Great series... Great finale!!!
Of course... in my humble opinion :)

I never understood people wanting the RJ plot to continue until the end/season 7. I had stopped watching The Mentalist for a season because I was tired of the same plot of RJ. Only because someone said that they wrapped it up did I pick up where I left off and caught up (RJ dying). Glad it ended in a happy ending, though I didn't believe the Lisbon and Jane plot as they had no chemistry.

If it was not meant to be the main plot then it should have ended sooner, if it was meant to be one then it should have lasted until the end of the show, or two or three eps before the finale... Maybe they should have done the romance thing in parallel with RJ plot and have them marry when RJ is dead...

Red John was never resolved and it should have at least been nodded to in the finale, I said to the wife it'd have been cool if right at the end after the wedding and dancing the camera lifts up and pans over the cabin and painted on the roof is a little red smiley face, camera zooms into it then fades to black, roll credits...

Quite honesty , the finale and the whole season was ok . Even the second part of the previous season , the start of the FBI era was fine .

The big issue and what soured everything is obviously how Red John was handled , and how dissapointing it was , after so much build up .

You would have to be really thick to not notice how lame the "romance" was between Jayne and Lisbon. There was absolutely NO energy there. Geesh, if you are supposed to be deeply in love, then there should be at least some sparks and passion. It was like watching a couple of aardvarks kissing.

So pathetic! This whole season, I mean, Vega was included for no reason in the show, her appearance and death brought nothing. And this show should have ended with Red John being killed/captured/whatever. After that episode it was all pointless and really obvious that it'll lead to this kind of an ending. Why turn a great show into romantic drama with only (pointless) bits of what once was great? Disappointing, for me the show ended with Red John.

Never bought romance between Patrick and Lisbon. Why can't a man and a woman work together and just be friends? "Bones", "Castle", "X-Files" etc. etc. etc. Since I found the way the Red John mystery was resolved miserable and dull, I'd be happy to have another solution of it in the final season (Red John was falsely identified before - why not again) - some REALLY great twist... Disppointed.

I think you're expecting it to be safe , because it's about Holmes and Watson But its a complete reimagining obviously , and it's clear there is a tension and some spark that they'll definitively exploit someday . It has been very palpable when there was a love interest for Holmes , with heavy "i'm the one who gets him" subtext with Joan Watson .

Feb 22, 2015
I don't think they will go that direction. The "tension" there is more a result of Holmes' knowledge that his sobriety (in all forms of that word) is dependent on Watson's physical and emotional health. He does love her, but not that way. He's very protective.
For her part, Watson has needed time to get used to Holmes' different attitudes about sexual mores, but she doesn't appear jealous at all - even of Moriarty. He taught her the job she loves and she's protective of him as well.
I don't see a romantic spark there at all. And that's not a defect in the storytelling or acting.

I think they will end up together in some form. His jealousy every time she gets a fella and her binning off her bf before what happens to him shows that she also knows there's no room for any other bloke. I can't see them holding that tension up for too long before they "fall" for each other

So, Mentalist came to an end! It was a decent series finale.

Too bad we didn't get all the answers on Red John; how he managed to build his network; how he managed to get all those people do the insane things they did, etc.

Overall, interesting story, well written and with some twists and improbabilities... how on earth Keller managed to survive the explosion and to get that far away from the house undetected? Anyway... it was series finale and I won't continue my nagging.

It was great to see Rigsby and Van Pelt! I missed them!

As I said, it was a decent series finale!

“Too bad we didn't get all the answers on Red John; how he managed to build his network; how he managed to get all those people do the insane things they did, etc.”

That’s the problem with creating a super-criminal; there is no way that you can reveal or explain them without making them even more ridiculous. Bones and CSI have both gone that route. It isn’t pretty.

Red John was supposed to be this brilliant, incredibly charismatic evil genius who was able to convince good people to happily do very bad things. The story arc went on way too long; even the death of the first “Red John” was well past its expiration date. Then for some reason, they decided to revive Red John and we were supposed to believe that some random character had done all the impossible things that Red John was supposed to have done, all while holding a full-time job as a law enforcement officer.

I know others feel differently, but for me, the non-Red John stories were always more entertaining. I enjoyed seeing Jane’s process for revealing the criminal, often tweaking their nose (sometime literally!) before tricking them into admitting their guilt. I did not enjoy the angst-ridden Red John episodes nearly as much, especially as Red John increasingly became an omniscient character always one step ahead of everyone else and playing mind games with Jane (without hurting him) for no discernible reason.

The finale is consistent with the last season 7 but inconclusive with the whole series.

Many details about Red John are still missing. How did he build his organization? Is it still active? Who are the names coded on the list? No answer.

Shall we expect an off-series episode with some answers? Or the writers just don't care about the story they've created and the expectations of the public?

So we have a season finale, not a series finale.

An happy ending, I had my doubts until the moment when Jane told Lisbon that Keller was still alive. I thought that they will live happily ever after but we never know. And they killed Vega a few episodes ago so we deserved an happy ending :).
It was a nice conclusion, I was happy to see Van Pelt and Rigsby. I understand why they weren't in the show anymore but I missed them.
Since the end of Red John I thought the show wasn't so interesting, at least the end of season 6. Season 7 was a bit better.
Oh and the "stay tuned for scene of our next episode" not nice!!!
Anyway the conclusion was nice, I would have wanted a bit more scene with the "CBI group" festing.
I'll miss the show.

I was so disappointed by the series last 2 seasons, and the end of the previous one as well, the whole Red John story arc. Crap. I just can't et past this season being the "Jane & Lisbon pre-honeymoon tour". And the way they wrote out the Kim Fischer character....with a letter in episode 1 of this season. The whole Vega story arc was....pointless. I feel like if Cho were watching this series he would roll his eyes, and give a droll comment and walk away to do something worthwhile.
I long for the days when this show was actually good. patrick Jane deserved better.

I agree with everything you posted unfortunately that's how network tv operates. The writers string the viewers along dropping little hints and bread crumbs along the way but when it came time to FINALLY wrap up the Red John story arc it turns out the writers were just making it up as they went and that they had no clear coherent story planned out. Needless to say I stopped watching when they wrapped up the RJ arc. Was also a shame they never gave the supporting characters like Cho,Rigsby and Van Pelt much development it was just basically stand around looking confused whilst Jane would put it all together and solve the case of the week.

I can't say the ending was much of a surprise. In the previous episode the psychic young man had told Jane that he would find his happiness in the number three. Lisbon, Jane and their baby. Duh. However, I did enjoy the send off and seeing Rigsby and Van Pelt again.

Great finale! I've always watched, but I don't think I ever heard why Rigsby and Van Pelt we're written out. Was the reasoning ever discussed or was it to just introduce new characters?

It's been a solid 7 seasons, tho. I always thought the show would end with Red John, but I'm glad it didn't.

Short version: after the death of Red John, the CBI was dismantled - everyone was out of a job. Cho and Lisbon went to work for the FBI in Austen TX, Jane went to Mexico (and later worked for the FBI) and Van Pelt & Rigsby got married, started a family, formed their own private investigations company and stayed in California :)

I never got the whole dismantling of the CBI and why the state would feel it necessary to get rid of the whole organization. Red John had people in multiple state, local and federal law enforcement agencies including the FBI. And if the entire CBI was suspect and had to be shutdown why would the FBI hire former CBI agents?

Great ending. I wish all the shows I've enjoyed over the years could've gotten a proper series finale like The Mentalist did.

Really liked that wrap up to the show. It included a nod to a lot of previous plotlines in the show. Lisbon rescues Jane again after he has disabled the villian. Jane gets to use his fake psychic routine to draw out the killer rather than for self aggrandizement and it works without tragic consequenses (yeah i know he gets kidnapped). Then when he is with the killer its the Jane that has made this show so interesting - cold reading the killer and using his wits and skills to triumph.
And the resolution of the whole I can't cope with your dangerous job story where Lisbon is part of the team to quietly take down the killer in her wedding dress and then gets on with the wedding. Cos apparently they are the friggin FBI and can cope.
My only quibble is they didn't expliain how Gideon knew stuff. Yep he had brain tumors but a oh he knew the killer or some such would have been good.
Happy that they brought Rigsby and Van Pell back too.
Everyone gets a good ending Cho gets to lead the team, Wylie gets Chos approval and a mentor, and there was even the nod to Jane's famous list and what made it seem like Abbot knew he was bluffing but wasn't bothered.
And yes there was the wedding and baby to make it a tied up with a nice bow happy ending.
Enjoyed the series and enjoyed this ending.

Up until now them acting a couple felt very poor, but now they stepped it up to what we wanted to see and I kind of want to see more of that (or a do-over of season 7s previous episodes). I'm not asking much... maybe just a full season?! ..yes, I know It's over now. And I really loved the last episodes :)

Well at least it had a very nice ending! It was wonderful for the characters to have such a happy ending, for the makers to be able to choose their own ending (rather than just getting cancelled) and it was great for everyone getting a happy ending and tying up loose ends.

It feels much nicer with a show leaving like this than say VERONICA MARS(!!) - now on the other hand Veronica Mars ending in such a unsatisfying way really opened the window for a movie, where as that would not be an as obvious choice here since the characters (hopefully) will be off living happily ever after. I don't begrudge them that.. I'm just a little sad.

Haha, In the words of Jane 6X22 "I am happy for you.
I'm just a little sad for me because you're leaving." ;)

Didn't anyone pick up on the bit of dialog between Abbott and Jane when Jane indicated he was thinking about leaving.

Abbott said if he leaves, then Abbott will have to renegotiate the deal they made 'on the napkin' -- and Jane replied he hadn't decided ... yet.

It was time to end the show, but after watching for 7 years, I admit I shed some tears when Libson told Jane she was pregnant! Wow, loved that ending as I wasn't expecting it.

The show lost its spark completely. Just became about mediocre crimes week after week. Sorry, but the whole Red John was the main reason people like me watched it and as you will know from all the rants online, it was the biggest let down of TV History, in my opinion. Waiting so long for the reveal of this psychopathic killer, just to find out its the least believable character to be Red John, was just too much. After that the show flat-lined for me. However, I must say, not all the episodes were boring after that, but the show was just not the same. The show had run it's course. I was happy with the finale that it was a "happily ever after" for Patrick and Lisbon.

everyone to their own i guess, i thought it just got better after the bloody red john story line... finally great stories and finally the romance no more chasing the serial killer... for me it was all good i was relieved that red john story was ended...and i really started to enjoy it...

At the end, there was the usual Jane voiceover "stay tuned for scenes from our next episode". So...

I got so confused by it, had to check:)

I have to add, though I might be wrong here - I thought they hinted that Keller Sr. might've been RJ after all. The thing is he was soooo evil even after death his spirit made his son do all the terrible stuff... And he was the serial killer that operated about 10-15 years earlier.
Could be, right?

I was about to write a comment about that too! It was the funniest thing about the finale.
