THE THEORIES

Ahhh formermale our favorite troll of them all...
Listen Bro saying Macalister is Red John isnt YOUR THING.
Everyone knew thats who the show picked because we all saw it!
It doesnt make you smart or special to say "i told u it was him".
It makes you an idiot.
This site is for Red John theories.
So thats what we did even tho it was highly unlikely anything would happen.
Its a FUCKING TV SHOW.

Your just some guy who felt like being a dick.
We all chose roles on this site, the skeptic , the conspiracy theorist, the sad, the angry,
and of course, THE TROLL.
The people who only came to the site so START SHIT.
So now that the show is done, for now, we all go back to our normal lives
And you go back under your bridge. As a troll.

So Remember when Red John use to paint TOE NAILS?
Then the serial killer who always killed the same stopped altogether.
Even stopped the smiley faces when he killed...

Now lazarus with the taken toe nails?
Gotta be related...

Also anyone think that girl was a diversion for when the killer punched Wiley?
Seemed to perfect to be a coicidence.

I'm trying not to be all negative because I still believe the Red John story is not over. I think CBS switched the Mentalist's time slot to the doomed sunday night time  ratings dropped drastically Heller had to do something  this is all a publicity stunt the rest of season 6 will be the New Beginning shaking up the show and getting new viewers and in the season 6 finale Red John will be back in the picture blowing the minds of the hardcore fans like us who were furious and bringing the new fans into the Red John storyline        The Red John storyline was the best mystery on tv and the Red John reveal didn't seem like the Mentalist there's no way it is over  i'm only still watching because of that belief                                       IN THE SEASON 6 FINALE THERE WILL BE A RED JOHN MURDER or RED JOHN WILL CONTACT JANE    season ends fans go fuckin bonkers  the show goes back to Thursdays  season 7 is the hunt for the real red john

That awkward moment when people who post theories as a hobby are better writers than a supposed professional writer.lol

I've though for a long time now that RJ could be Dr Steiner.  He asks Jane to witness his suicide because he is afraid of an autopsy.  Why would someone who is afraid of being autopsied become a coroner?  Hey may have just taken a drug which made him look dead.

Also many theories say that RJ like Lisbon which is why he didn't kill her.  In the episode where Steiner 'dies' he says:

"Agent Lisbon's a good person.  She reminds me of......never mind"

He never does say who she reminds him of. 

Also the scenes with Jane and Steiner were always quite funny.  The writers could have kept him on the show to pop up every now and again just to add comedic value.  There could be another reason for taking him off the show.

Red John is actually an acronym for:

R Rigsby
E Edna Kinders(from season 2, episode 5)
D Dean Harken

J Jane
O Oscar Ardiles
H Hightower, Madeline
N Nathan Brown(a suspect in season 1, episode 3)

Red John is a collective group of these seven people.
