"The Mentalist" Season 6 has yet to air a new episode after "The Golden Hammer," which aired on Jan. 12 on CBS. Episode 13, titled "Black Helicopters" has a March 9 air date on TV.com. Fans are tiding themselves over with TV scoop, such as one that says Oberyn Martell of HBO's "Game of Thrones" Season 4 will be the new man in Teresa Lisbon's (Robin Tunney) life. Meanwhile, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and the rest of his CBI team are in the crosshairs of Red John's 'Blake Association' cohorts.

Spoiler alert: This feature contains spoilers on the previously aired episodes of The Mentalist Season 6. Minor spoilers in new episodes included. If you don't want to know who's playing Oberyn Martell in 'Game of Thrones' Season 4, this is the point where you stop reading.

Teresa Lisbon will be dating in the next half of The Mentalist Season 6. There is no solid report on whether this would be week-long or months-long romance. But creator Bruno Heller has hinted Lisbon should have a life somewhat away from Jane.

"It's very important for her to be able to step away from Jane and see herself for herself," Heller told Entertainment Weekly. The same report mentioned this new guy whom Lisbon will be dating will appear in The Mentalist Season 6, Episode 15 or 16.

FBI Special Agent Marcus Pike is Lisbon's new love interest, revealed TVLine.com. The character will be played by Chilean actor Pedro Pascal, who is also playing Oberyn Martell in HBO's Game of Thrones Season 4. Pascal has recently been seen in "Homeland" and Graceland."

As for Patrick Jane, fans expect him to learn of the murder of Oscar Ardiles (David Norona) in the next new episode of The Mentalist Season 6. Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) may have probably been killed, too. Yeoman has already said goodbye to his Rigsby character on Twitter.

"My last Mentalist Day ever! Goodbye Rigsby- I will miss spending time with you buddy. Thanks for 6 great years!" Owain posted on Twitter.

Red John's Blake Association is believed to be on full assault against the former CBI team that ended Red John's reign. Who is the new big bad leader now? Grace VanPelt (Amanda Righetti) leaves a cautious message to her husband toward the end of The Mentalist Season 6, Episode 12. But Amanda is also leaving the series. Will the viewers even see her again?
