I really enjoyed this episode even tho Brett Styles didn't pop out.
I have concluded one thing tho:
-there is no major story line, boss, bad guy.
There are not many episodes left and leading into the 2 hour finale i am assuming
it will cover a storyline from the past.
Nothing else will be important enough to use in a SERIES finale.

-Anyone get the feeling Jane or Lisbon will die at the seasons close?
They are setting it all up.
Jane worried about Lisbon asking her to retire and her resisting that notion.
I can see Jane being killed right before they were going to retire, and Rigsby and Van Pelt at the funeral.

Hey, hey :-)

Believe it or not.... i think Patrick Jane is the Mastermind behind Red John!!!
He was it from the beginning on and now all given clues will lead us to him at the end!

Bruno Heller and Team didn't know how long they will do the series and so they created a
lot of interesting personalitys who could be Red John. If the series had to end at Season 3,
Timothy Carter would have been Red John! If the series had to end with Season 5 we would have seen Bret Stiles, Brett Partridge or somebody else as Red John, i don't know!

Then they knew, that they could bring the series to their fitting end, so a "Red John - Mc Allister" reveal during season 6 and an encore-season 7.

A really good theory is "Theory #18609 • By Theresa90"
Well done, I can't say it better!!!

A lot of People asked about the clue "HE IS MAR"
Well, look at this! :-)

Maybe i'm totally wrong, we will see!!!

Have a nice Weekend!!! ;-)

Episode 6 was very cool.
Classic Jane doing his thing and catching the killer with ease.
The tea cup from Lisbon was awesome too!
It brought back so many memories for me.

But i have a question..
Why a week after we learn of Abbots past do we get an episode
that dealt directly with someone who knew about Abbots past?
How convenient was that?
Who is pulling the strings at fbi?
Who out Abbott on this case with his friend from the past?
I forget her name but whos the Fbi directors name?
She is the woman who was on the phone with Minelli with Kirkland in her limo.
I remember last seasons finale, the case Jane completely fabricated was part of a old case dealing with the director of the fbi. I remember hearing her name

Hi, my nickname is Theresa90, and 11 months ago i posted here a theory wich i copy/pasted lower down. I would like for you all to understand one thing. This show is a show THAT AT THE END MUST BE BASED ON FACTS. Because it is made like this from the begining.
secont thing, PJ is a person wich can hypnotize people, read minds, body language...do you think he wouldnt know about Mcallister? In several episodes, he would just know that random people are lovers, without those people even looking at him. do you think that the entire series of BODY LANGUAGE, HYPNOTIZING and FACIAL EXPRESIONS WOULD GIVE YOU MCALLISTER? people, wake up, they are playing a kon on us all.


POINT OF THIS? People, USE YOUR IMAGINATION. IF YOU USE IT; YOU CAN SEE THIS SHOWS ENDING WITH A MUCH MORE GREATER PERSPECTIVE.
My suspect is Patrick Jane. WHY? WHAT IF McAllister was hypnotized all the time, what if MAR means MARIONETTE
Why do you believe literally everything BH,SIMON BAKER and others write or say? They cant just say, hey people, PJ IS RJ. Than the series would be over


Why nobody suspects him? Because he is the main actor, cute, sexy, too positive to be a serial killer we hate at the same time....people, think about it.....

- Do you think Oscar dies just because? Lisbon said she has a date with him as a joke in front of PJ and guess what happens next.....Jane jelaous , Oscar dies..not for the first time that the persons who want something with Lisbon die right after PJ finds out.....
- What do we see in this season? Jane and a LOT of women going around him....Lisbon, Blondie, Fischer....Isnt RJ the charming one who can have any woman he want?
- And again.....Jane mentions to Blondie....nobody knows who i really am.....and that is something we dont hear for the first time....
-What if Mcallister was hipnotized by PJ? Or was a sacrifice for PJ (RJ) who wanted to get possible clues of his back? 
- I dont say that Jane has a bird phobia but i noticed he is not comfortable around them, also he is afraid of heights....

- The dead psy? Well one thing i know is that when someone has 2 personalities he doesnt know about his second personality....so if PJ was there his RJ personality killed her and she was talking to the RJ personality...she probably wouldnt say to PJ...you have a RJ personality in you too....she was going with the flow and pretending to be talking to 2 persons like she never met them before...to PJ and to RJ...

- In Sophie Millers description Rj is described as a person with no living family but he has friends on wich he relies on.....so for me even this indicates on PJ...
- RJ has a narcis personality.....never saw that in TM....but is Jane a narcy? Yup...
- AND SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT.....I WAS JUST NOW LISTENING TO THE TAPE....IT IS CLEARLY SAID THAT RJ DEALS WITH THE FEAR OF HEIGHTS? WE CLEARLY ALSO SEE THAT PJ IS AFRAID OF HEIGHTS AND THAT MCALLISTER IS NOT....I THINK THAT THE FEAR OF BIRDS WAS MADE UP BY PJ...PJ SAID THAT RJ IS AFRAID OF BIRDS....
- MCALLISTER WAS OR A RJ (PJ) DISCIPLE AND HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DIE TO PROTECT THE REAL RJ (PJ) AND GET HIM OF THE HOOK....OR MCALLISTER WAS HIPNOTIZED BY PJ WITH BERTRAM AND WAS ORDERED TO COME TO THE CHURCH.
- PJ GOT AWAY FROM JUSTICE BECAUSE HE KILLED THE FAMOUS MURDERER


Here are some things i would like to point out from the previous seasons,episodes....

...in the season 4 where Jane is talking to Lorelei she says why did they never became friends when they are so alike...i did not see anyone soo damm alike to Jane in the episodes

...and the face RJ drawns with blood is just like Janes face...

...why there were no RJ killings while PJ was in Las Vegas for 6 months...

...how the hell did Lorelei found him in Las Vegas?

....why was exactly the CBI dude Luther Wainwright the one who got caught by RJ...if i remember he and PJ were insulting each other the episode before...and RJ does not like to be insultet in any way..so LW ended up dead...why it was not hmmm...Lisbon? Because PJ likes her and think as a friend/crush

...and now you will ask me what are the other suspects doing in the series...and i wil tell you that they are nothing but distractions...just to keep us away from Jane in the first place....and on the other hand doing misunderstandings with PJ s mind...like for example the girl in the graveyard was sent from a disciple just to mindfuck PJ and the person with the baseball hat could be any of them...

....in the series we can see that PJ is very good at faking things...from his mental acts to his behaviour...like when he was in a verbal fight with Luther, even Lisbon believed all of that but it was just an act....

...somehow RJ is always one step ahead of PJ...wich is impossible...he knows his every move, his every tought and his every trick...


...when PJ lost his memory he was a complete different person....

...nobody did not know about the meeting between Gale Bertram and PJ....

...how did RJ knew that PJ is going to the graveyard just when he saw the happy anniversary note on his car...PJ when arrived there was not looking around for RJ, but he was looking in the graves, and why he hipnotized the girl and said to Lisbon RJ could kill her...he could instead leave her go and follow her...

...also there is a big black hole in the series when James Panzer was killed by RJ...it was a great moment for PJ to follow Panzer privately just to get in trouble with RJ as he always did before...but this time he didnt....

...why is PJ keeping all the sudden everybody away from RJ...ok, he says that if anybody talks about RJ ends up dead...but i think there is something behind that....i think that PJ usually wouldnt care that much about others and that he would try to set a bait for RJ in that way....

....why didnt RJ take for example Van Pelt, or Cho, or Rigsby in the limo but exactly Luther wich PJ didnt like so much...and why is the group VP,Cho, Rigsby and Lisbon safe for 5 seasons now...

...why did RJ wanted to "have fun" with Darcy instead for example Lisbon wich is also helping to solve the RJ case with PJ...

...how come that Christina Frye is alive but was in contact with RJ....he hipnotized her wich is the thing Patrick does...and PJ does not kill her as RJ because he liked her..

....the voice in the limo sounds like PJ...

...."does anyone know who you are?"...charlotte asks PJ while halucinating...

....i am just not sure if PJ is RJ frome the beginning or it is half Timothy and half Jane...

...i think that when RJ was thinking it was time for him to approach was the time in the mall..because he knew he has done his job but wanted jane to continue it...so jane with the mental disorder did so...but when the Jane persona was more powerfull in his head than the RJ persona then the disciples and the clues where there to mess up janes head again...

...and whats with the happy memory thingy only Pj knew ;)

.. Also Red John guessed all the suspects correct which is impossible since how would he know which people did Jane shake hands with. 

...Its feels like Jane is Red John. Whether its a case of multiple personality disorder perhaps..

If we believe the premise of the show who else but Patrick Jane could pull off being Red John? Do we actually believe it is an inbred, small town, hick sheriff? I hope the writers of this show will have enough respect for the fans and not leave us with such a ridiculous answer to the driving force behind this show. I believe one of 2 possible theories:
1) We will find out that the hick sheriff was merely a distraction to allow Patrick (the real Red John) escape.
2) We will find that Jane has imagined the entire series as he lays confined to a padded cell, jail cell, or strapped to the table waiting for the lethal injection for the murders he has committed.

The Mentalist Season One for 9 Euros at iTunes - but after this ending I just can't convince myself to invest. Even if this would still be one of the best episodes around. Thx Bruno.
