LATEST THEORIES

It is obvious that everything was a hallucination inside Patrick Jane's brain. He has actually been living in a psychiatric hospital from first to last episode.

Ok I’m so late ! I just watched the 6x08 episode and I’m so disappointed, this is the worst thing to do. That « RJ Reveal ».....

To me, Brett Partridge is/was Red John ! That McAlister thing is funny … RJ is a narcissist, with a twisted mind and he is extremely violent to commit such murders. RJ is charismatic and his voice is supposed to be high .... But McAlister is calm, not crazy and is so afraid of Jane. His voice isn't even RJ voice...and  I wouldn’t even fear this man …

So my theory is RJ is Brett Partidge.

Here's Why :
 - I'm French and this is the actor's french voice that has been used in 2x23 and 6x01 .. So to me it was the biggest clue
- He's an RJ expert 
- He hates Jane 
- He looks uncomfortable and uncapable of emotion just like a psycopath will do
- He is mannered and precious just like Jane
- He's the only one who act like he was totally innocent (6x01) when Jane confronts him
- His first line was "Red John Enters" and creators could have use it 
- He's excited by morbid things and even a genius like him couldn't resist his pulsions
About MCAlister - he's older than 40 when Partridge has the right age 
-He's isn't afraid of Heights when RJ is.
- He said he regretted killing Jane's wife and daughther when RJ would never say such thing
- He said he "won't be punished for what he did" (4x22) but then suddenly he repents ? NO WAY
 
And so much more ... 

So i'll keep this idea in my head because this is the only one who's really cool and that make sense.

I won't even watch the show after this Episode because it is unecessary. Jane is what he is because of what RJ did. The "reveal" happened then there's no interest in the show anymore ... 
I needed to tell you what i though because i could've never thought a show could disapointed me taht way ...

Red john is smart and sadist
through the series false leads to red john beeing male, which makes obvious assumptions the smart killer would disguise herself as the oposite gender
She is a mentalist, always close to jane, knows everything he knows at the same time hiding in sight, she has connections to every suspect also, and police intel.

Sadistically she subconsiously show herself as the killer to torture jane for her own pleasure
leaving hints that jane leave in the air, and acumulate pain
initials teresa lisbon , TL, Red John, RJ
the letters S and K are alphabetically aparting their initials, which stands for serial killer.
it is certain that teresa is redjohn, however, her motives remain a mistery for me, why Jane? Whar's the real motive for teresa to pick on Jane?

Thomas McALLISTER Crowley

Blows my mind how real to life this show really was.

The Blake Association is real

Men in positions of power who think of themselves as above God = True Satanism 
"Do what thou wilt"

Gaining power and influence though blackmail

Using trauma based mind control techniques on their female sex slaves (Lorelie)

Lure a lie-
using your sex slave as a Vegas mistress to blackmail and control people...

Remember how Red John was part of scientology (visualize) at one point?

But he broke away and created his own cult ?

Just like the people in the NXIVM sex-cult in real life ...
