And speaking of Red John, so we left off with a list of seven suspects, Will any of the seven be showing up this season? Can you talk a little bit about what could be happening with that?
Certainly, all seven of those suspects will be part of this season and the CBI, Jane, and the CBI are doing their best to work out which one of them is Red John. I can tell you it won’t be a sort of Ten Little Indians type of of set up, it’s more of a Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which one of these guys is the guy.
Tinker Tailor soldier Spy, it is about finding a spy in ntelligenca agency from a list of 5 person, and at the end, the spy is one of the five persons.
So, as much as i wanted that Red John would be someone out of the list, and specifically : Walter M/ashburn, because he is the only person who would fit and not include a deception ( see theory 7201 : http://www.whoisredjohn.com/See-a-theory-Red-John/7021#disqus_thread. )
Red John is one of the list, there will be some twist so that the true Red John will reveal his true identity and avoid a sloppy writing, but let us not forget, the season had been going for 6 years, and somehow i find that this season is independant and made it own way from the other ones, as someone said : Average writing for average people, producer are searching for money, and we know that too much mystery is always avoided by the audience.
Who ever thought that the Mentalist would be different from other commercial series were wrong, it is one pattern, and it is always about the money since everything is discussed between the producer and the writers.
AND IF SOMEONE CLOSE TO THE MENTALIST ENTOURAGE IS READING THIS, PLEASE TELL THE WRITERS : DARE TO GIVE THE MENTALIST THE END IT DESERVE, THE MAGISTRAL ONE. IF NOT, THE SHOW WOULD BE DEAD, AS DEAD AS CRAIG O LAUGHLIN !
