I cannot believe this show is ending without as much as a reference to the past.
Ok forget the All the Rj craziness that makes no sense.
How about the usb and the list Abbott wanted Jane to decode.
It was a major plot line with Jane getting a Job with the fbi and avoid jail if he did this.
They never mentioned it again!
They have never said what happened to visualize after Styles died, god the list goes on.
But my point is this, dont you get the feeling they left room for different outcomes in the show but obviously chose the gay route?
Season 6 especially could of gone any other way. Literally.
All the clues meant nothing other than someone is the boss of this group.
Ok this guy is the boss
Cool so 96 percent of clues didnt mean anything ? Yea they were just there in case we went another route.
If the fanbase didn't fall in love with Rigsby and Van Pelts relationship maybe they could of been killers?
If the actress that played Lorelie wasnt filming some movie during Mentalist season then maybe she could of been used more...
Maybe if whoever played Kristina Freye didnt ask for more money then she could of been involved..get me?
Even Simon Baker agreed this show should end in tragedy..
They forgot who Patrick Jane the character really is...
Baker also has said he wished he could of had the freedom of cable networks to really dig into the character of Red John. Im paraphrasing.
Politics and network tv are to blame.
