Patrick Jane: There's this little cabin in the hill country. Rustic, charming, very romantic.
Teresa Lisbon: Rustic as in no running water, or...?
Patrick Jane: Well, would that be a problem?
Teresa Lisbon: When you said "let's go away for the weekend", I was kinda hoping for the kind of place that leaves the mint on the pillow.

Do yourself a favor and watch this episode
7 February 2015 | by wolfsbrigadeurSee all my reviews

I've actually never written a review before on IMDb but I feel I have to write one after watching "Nothing Gold Can Stay" yesterday.

I was hooked since season 1 of The Mentalist and I really enjoyed every single episode in the last 6 years but I have to say the last one was special.

It's rare that a show manages to invoke such feelings. The performances of Baker, Tunney, Kang etc., the script, the photography...everything was top notch. The last minutes of this episode (after the case is solved) make for an instant classic in my book. It was touching and moving in a special way. Other shows are just not able to accomplish this.

I will miss this show like hell but I agree: it's better to finish on your apex than to go on til nobody wants to see it anymore.

Just do yourself a favor and binge watch The Mentalist. Watch this episode and tell me it didn't hit home. It may not be the easiest path to end this show but it's the only satisfying and believable way. I'm looking forward to the last three episodes and I'm already sure the end will kick me in the guts...but in a good way, just like this episode. That's the best thing I can hope for with a TV show and I'm absolutely positive The Mentalist can deliver. Let me get emotional one more time by watching the characters who grew to me so much. I'm sure I won't regret it.
