"The Mentalist" Season 6, Episode 22, titled "Blue Bird," airs May 18 on CBS. Series creator Bruno Heller has earlier said the fans will appreciate what happens in this week's new episode. Perhaps Heller is referring to Jisbon fans, or those who want Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) to be together.

"Don't go. Don't break up the team," Patrick Jane is heard saying in the CBS promo clip for The Mentalist Season 6, Episode 22.
Bruno Heller has spoken about giving fans what they want in an interview. Perhaps Jisbon fans will get a "happy ending" in this week's new episode, which is also the Season 6 finale.
The Mentalist Season 6, Episode 22 features a cold case getting warm, so to speak. If not for this cold case, Lisbon would be leaving sooner. Destiny seems to be at play here, because it seems Jane still needs time to process his feelings for Lisbon.
In The Mentalist Season 6, Episode 21 (aired May 11 on CBS), FBI Agent Marcus Pike (Pedro Pascal) asks Lisbon to marry him. The impromptu proposal happens with Jane just a few feet away. The couple does not reach a formal engagement, but Lisbon seems to be considering it.
It must be noted that Robin Tunney has been looking more beautiful and sexier in the recent episodes of The Mentalist. One, this could be because Lisbon's relationship with Pike is supposed to be making her bloom. Two, this could be because Jane has to really see Lisbon from another perspective.
There are words that are still left unsaid between Jane and Lisbon. He has been holding back (as seen in The Mentalist Season 6, Episode 20, where he tells her to do what makes her happy). And she has been waiting for something more concrete from him (the feelers in 6x20 were not enough).
