Fans of “The Mentalist” have been trying to figure out how the season finale will put Teresa Lisbon into the arms of Patrick Jane. After Agent Pike came on board helping at the FBI, the chemistry between Teresa Lisbon and Marcus Pike has been flying off the television. According to Yahoo News on Saturday, Agent Teresa Lisbon is forced to make a decision on where she wants to go with her life. It could be she gets married in the future.
Between Simon Baker's Patrick Jane and Teresa Lisbon, played by Robin Tunney, there has been numerous times when the characters seemed to be close to starting a romantic relationship. Each time the interruption was either work or Jane’s memories of his family. This left the door open on the idea of a romantic relationship, but this season it seems particularly important as the show could be canceled.
According to TV Guide, there will be a shocker before Agent Teresa Lisbon makes a decision. A whirlwind romance with Agent Pike has the two looking at a ring as Lisbon is proposed to. What happens next hasn’t been revealed, but her decision is a balance of loyalty to Patrick Jane and romantic enticement from Agent Pike.
Apparently Agent Lisbon is serious about Agent Pike. The International Business Times suggested on Saturday that the two characters have kissed on camera so show sincerity of the budding relationship. All of the signs point to a decision that Patrick Jane needs to make quickly. Either he lets down his guard and reveals his real feelings or Teresa might be lost forever.
“The Mentalist” hasn’t been officially renewed for another season. This is in part because of the ending of the Red John story line and in part of the ratings. While fans are hoping CBS does decide to renew, it would be delightful if the couple who has been working together finds a relationship past friendship too.
“The Mentalist” airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on CBS.
