I did some screencaptures of the great The Mentalist 4x01 promo that came out yesterday, you can check them in the Gallery If you missed the promo, just take a look at the previous post of the blog ;-)
I remind you that The Mentalist Season 4 Premiere will air September 22, 10/9c on CBS.
French magazine "Télé Loisirs" published a short interview with Simon Baker, in which he talks also about Jane and Lisbon (Robin's character) relationship. I translated that part in english:
Simon Baker: "Romance with Patrick Jane? It is possible..."
During last season (season 2), your character apparead more relaxed, ready for a date. Are those days over? In the moment that he feels like he can be human again, he's going to lose his bearings. Season 3 shows really how much Lisbon plays an important role in his life, as a colleague but also as a friend.
Is this friendship going to evolve in romance? I don't reject this possibility. The relationship between Jane and Lisbon is more complex than the other relationships on television. Jane-Lisbon duo is a deep friendship story. People who watch the show don't fantasize to see Jane and Lisbon make love on the back seat of a car... Maybe you, French viewers! [laughs]
I updated the "The Mentalist" Section of the blog. I wrote a "Teresa Lisbon Profile", with some informations about Robin's character. In the same section, I also put a complete list of episodes from Season 1 to 3 of the show. For the Season 4 episodes, I remind you of the list updated in the homepage of the blog.

The Italian website edesubitoserial.it published an article about Robin and her career. The Italian fans can read it HERE on the website. For the non-Italian fans, I made a translation of the article. Click on Read More to read it. I also put it the Interviews Section.
Since the beginning of the show we are used to see Robin's character on The Mentalist, Teresa Lisbon, wearing a cross chain. She is never without it. But what is the reason why she always wears it? Robin finally answered this question on whosnews.usaweekend.com Click on Read More to read her answer.
Attention! Read it only if you want to know before the show eventually reveales it! ;-)
"After renegotiating Simon Baker's deal late last year to give the Mentalist star a major salary bump, series producer Warner Bros. TV has now done the same for the rest of the cast of the CBS crime procedural, which returns for a fourth season this fall. Like Baker, co-stars Robin Tunney, Amanda Righetti, Tim Kang and Owain Yeoman have all added an extra year to their existing six-year contracts. In exchange, I hear Tunney, who was most recently at about $75,000 an episode, will now go up to over $100,000 an episode next season with built-in yearly salary increases that will bring her up to almost $200,000 per episode at the end of her contract."
Simon Baker gave recently an interview to tvnz.co.nz in which he also talks about his character's (Patrick Jane) relationship with Robin's (Teresa Lisbon). Here's what he says about it:
"We constantly discuss these things." [...]"There's more stuff to play out in that relationship, there's been little moments on the show, but nothing's been consummated. I think there's obviously an affection between the two of them; whether that's a lust or a love... or just a mutual respect... " [...]"Out of sheer boredom I want the character to develop and new things to happen."
'Robin Tunney may best be known for her notable performances in The Craft and Empire Records, but it's The Mentalist that brought her back. As Teresa Lisbon, Tunney often finds herself having to cover for Patrick Jane - she's witty, sarcastic, and hot. Who could ask for anything more?.'
Robin will be among the guests of CBS' party "Stars party at the Pagoda" in Beverly Hills tonight, for the TCA Summer 2011. Robin will be there with Tim Kang and Amanda Righetti. I hope I will be able to update you with some pictures soon!
