"The Mentalist" Season 6 is getting super intense. The Red John saga is getting closer and closer to its no-doubt dramatic finale. Episode 7 left us in quite the cliffhanger. The Red John suspects have been narrowed down to the three candidates with the red dots on their shoulders: FBI Agent Reede Smith, CBI Director Gale Bertram and Sheriff Thomas McAllister. However, before Jane's investigation could move further, Jane's plan blew up in his face: literally!

"The Mentalist" is sure to reveal the identity of Red John very soon. But what happens after the serial killer is revealed? Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) has been threatening that he will kill his nemesis as soon as he discovers his identity. Butaccording to TV Guide. "Lisbon's always said, 'I understand you want to do that, but I am the law.' Now that issue is not a theoretical one, it's a real one." However, Simon Baker spoke with TV Guide Magazine and seems to suggest that Jane might get his way after all.

"It's almost like a love scene, as perverse as that sounds," Baker told TV Guide Magazine. "The end of Red John was originally planned to take place at night on the street with people watching, but I pushed to do it in the daylight in a quiet, beautiful place where they could be alone. There is no human act more intimate -- not even sex -- than killing another human being and watching them die."

The Mentalist Episode 8 "The Great Red Dragon" premieres this Sunday, 10 p.m. Check back with Latin Times for more spoilers and details on when and where to watch the show online!
