      I think it is likely that in The Great Red Dragon, Red John planted the bomb while they were all gathering into the room. Then he could leave and 'arrive just on time' so Jane won't suspect a bomb.

      My theory is Gale Bertram
      He is the only suspect on the list left and he doesn't take orders to kill from anyone. He also has been trying to get all the information he can about Red John from Jane. And he happens to be the director of the CBI which happens to be the perfect position to keep an eye on Jane and make sure he doesn't get too close and to try to keep him under control.And you see the boxes full of false identities, passports, money, and other equipment he has in that storage room! And the way he killed that bartender without any look of regret or emotion on his face. Really suspect he is a ruthless killer.....

This isn't really a theory, but on the first episode in Season 6, Desert Rose, Jane and Lisbon are in that diner/bar in the middle of desert while doing a case. As Jane and Lisbon are talking, you see someone exit the diner holding a straw hat. Later on, you see that same person again walking in while holding the hat. You can't tell who it is because the background is blurry and everything is focused on Jane and Lisbon, but from the looks of it, the person looks like Bertram. The way that person is dressed is similar to the way Bertram was dressed on episode 8 season 6 when Bertram is in the gas station.

Is this really anything, or am I just looking at pointless things in the background? If this is Bertram, or someone suspicious, can this relate or foreshadow anything related to Red John?

I believe it is Bertram, because the only thing, in my opinion, that would remove him from the list of Patrick is the "fact" that Bertram is not good at poker. But he might as well pretend not to know how to play to fool everyone. So I think it's him. If Red John is as good as Patrick Jane, he must obviously be good at poker, but Red John, like any good sociopath, could hide it.

What if red john was an organisation? I mean, Bruno Heller said that when he reveals who red john is, everyone will be dissapointed and no one would've expected that coming.
Depending on the acts of the show, he's showing that everyone is almost an enemy with Jane...The secret is thinking outside the box...That's why they're everywhere.
I know i am waaaay to out of logic but i am justing trusting Heller's sayings

Two simple questions: Season 3 finale.

- Why does Timothy Carter show up? PJ and his team think they figured out that Bertram was the CBI spy. So PJ told only him to meet in that mall with Hightower right? How could Craig O'Laughlin found out since he was RJ's accomplice? Did van Pelt tell him? I doubt so. How did RJ get to know of the meeting with Hightower?

- After PJ tells Betram that they found Hightower he immediately calls somebody. Did he call Bob Kirkland since he is indebted to tell him about every move PJ does? If he called him how could RJ find out? Or did he call some of his BA accomplices? But who the hell would tell a country sheriff who's nothing to do with city life? I doubt that Betram called McAllister. He said himself nobody within the BA society knows about his identity.


Maybe I'm missing something. These were just some question that came to my mind when i rewatched Season 3 finale... best episode ever ;'(
