THE THEORIES

I can't believe Jon Snow gets murdered by his fellow Nights Watch brothers..for letting wildings into the Nights Watch after defeating Mance at the wall with Stannis' help...almost as crazy as Tyrion killing his dad and going to Easteros with Varys

Why should Bruno give a shit about our wishes or expectations regarding Red John once he has given us Dead John already? Lightning never hits the same spot twice. The fake RJ was done before and we bought it with our mouths wide open salivating. So, there are 2 options here leading to the same conclusion:

1- Red John stays as Dead John and Bruno is an asshole
2- Red John comes back as someone else (you name it) which means Mc Allister was also a fake like the previous one and Bruno is still an asshole for doing us the same trick twice.

So, any of us may like any of the above options but in the end, there's only one thing that remains the same: Bruno is an asshole. When I think like this, I feel that I will be OK with any kind of ending to this series. Yeah, I think I found my closure...

How did Red John get the 7 names on the list?

How come he had to kill Bret Partridge in that house at that exact time?

Who was the woman in the church?

What happened to Kristina Frye?

What about Erica Flynn? After she used Jane to scape from prison Jane promissed he would catch her and bring her back to jail.

And what about Hightower? Jane promissed her he would let her know when he killed Red John so she could stop hiding. Did he just forget about it?

What about the list of BA members? Abbot has to ask Jane for more names eventually.

Who is 'Mar'? Marcus Pike?

We need answers and we are running out of time.

I got the impression that Heller dragged it out for so long because he didn't know what to do with Red John or who he would be.

TV Guide Magazine: What does this gruesome triumph do for Jane? Often when we get what we want, we find out it's not what we wanted at all.
Baker: "Protect me from what I want!" My wife has that saying on a little plaque in our kitchen. That's the catchphrase I took to [series creator] Bruno Heller and said, "This is what we have to do as the show moves forward. We have to deal with the comedown, the disappointment, the loss of focus." It's that meandering feeling you get after you've achieved the very thing that's driven you for years. Okay, you got what you wanted. What now?
 

Baker:
 You want to know something I've never talked about?
TV Guide Magazine: Hell, yeah!
Baker: All those times we heard the voice of Red John? That was me.
TV Guide Magazine: Seriously?
Baker: Yes! In the Season 2 finale, when Jane was captured and Red John did that "Tyger, Tyger" thing with the mask on? That was me. I played both characters in that scene.

TV Guide Magazine: Wow. That's especially trippy considering there was a major theory going around that Jane was Red John. So in a way that turned out to be true!
Baker: That was the reason I did that. There was a point where Bruno was saying, "We don't know who we're going to cast to play [the masked Red John]." I said, "Don't cast anyone! I'll do it." Bruno was, like, "I love it! I love it!" So I put on a mask and did that funny, wispy little voice. And for seasons after, whenever Red John spoke, I had to go record the voice.
