Meanwhile, the first season finale for the series has been set to air on May 19. Speaking briefly about the particular episode, Simon Baker said to E!, "What we do in the finale is go straight to the quick of what drives him, which is revenge. There's a real vengeance within him and a burning desire for revenge. So you see this darker side of what he wants, in that sense."
"The Mentalist" participated at Paley Festival and had its panel introduced on April 17. In attendance was creator Bruno Heller who answered the question whether somebody will get laid eventually. "It's deliberate that everyone is not getting laid every week," Bruno said. "I don't think people get laid as much in life as they do on the telly... we'll got there but we'll go there carefully and respectfully and slowly like in a real workplace."
