I'm both happy and Sad
2 February 2015 | by Dariush72See all my reviews

I don't know how a writer or actor can make the viewer care about a fictional character, to make the viewer feel happy or sad when the character is happy or sad, The Mentalist however can be a good reference for any writer, showrunner and actor in making the viewers care deeply about characters specially after the two great episodes that we have been given these past two week

the seventh season in general as pointed out by creator "Bruno Heller" is an encore, meant to be a final hurrah for a great show and unlike other shows, "so far" it doesn't have overly dramatic events or scenes, the writer is not changing the direction of the character, it feels incredibly natural

an example is The Love between Lisbon and Jane doesn't require over the top sex scenes a simple observation of how they act together is enough

the ending minutes of this episode was by far one of the greatest scenes of this show with only showing the characters and how happy they are together......I am happy for their happiness but sad that in a few weeks, this show is gonna end.....
