THE THEORIES

Thomas Mc'ALISTER...CROWLEY 

The Blake Association were a "do what though will" Alister Crowley type of cult/group.
(Gnostics)

They were cops, judges, fbi, and ELITES running drugs and HUMAN TRAFFICKING out of Napa Valley...
Human trafficking and sex slaves like Timothy Carter style...yea..
They got lower level members through blackmail or making peoples problems "go away". (Reed Smith)

Red John didn't have magical powers.
He preyed on people with troubled backgrounds..

If he couldn't blackmail or pull rank he would use trauma based mind control to make his more cultish followers do as he pleased..(the women who are obsessed with him, who would die for him) Always women too right ?
I don't remember a guy ever calling him their God...

Sexually perverted trauma based mind control..aka breaking them thus owning their mind 

Jane knew what he was saying when he called him sexually perverted..

Lorelie was the classic example of this..

Her sister was sold, died in captivity as a slave.. 

RJ "broke" Lorleie the way Harvey Weinstein breaks his actresses..

Rj used LORE el LIE as a Madamme type HANDLER in VEGAS in order to LURE girls into RJs coven of mental slaves...


THIS SHIT IS REAL LIFE!!! 

Bruno Heller broke PEDOGATE before Wiki leaks !!!

My biggest problem with he Rj reveal WAS that I couldn't get passed a "serial killer" like Red John also being an illuminati type Boss leader of the Blake Association..

But when you research the big time serial killers in reality, they all say they were working for other high end group of men who paid them to find victims ..

The RJ "calling card" of the smiley face and the toes painted was only a RED HERRING..

That wasnt his M.O.
He wasnt a serial killer in the "Dexter" sense...

Dexter has an MO when he kills...Rj killed and ordered tons of people killed in all different types of ways.

In fact, in the mentalist show, Rj killed more people in other ways besides his typical M.O. calling card...

The details were irrelevant like Jane implied...

The audience was looking for a creepy Brett Partridge type of guy as the Dexter-like serial killer..

Nobody ever expected a Napa Valley Sheriff who also was a MOB BOSS!!!

He had sleeper agents or "red John-doe's" all over..
His pawns like Reed Smith or Bertram knew someone had dirt on him and that they had to listen to RJ or they would be exposed...
Thats Washington DC in a nutshell..

Check out this real life story from Napa Valley as a random coiqience too...

McAllister
could've been a good or even great Red John if he was properly build up
to be Red John from the beginning.A few things, that would've made him a
better, maybe even good Red John

1. More appearances. Appearing in 1x02
for the first time is a good way to introduce Red John. Give him 2-5
more appearances over the course of the next seasons. Maybe let him
reappear twice in season 2, once in season 3 and 1 or 2 times in season
5.
2. Less dumb first appearance. He was like a buffoon.
There was something creepy about him, but that was not enough. Let him
win at rock-paper-scissors a few times.
3. Give some clues. Noone had
McAllister as a suspect before the list, I personally didn't even
remember him. Don't make him too obvious, but give some clues.
4. Better
reveal. Nothing to say here. NO running away, McAllister was actually
quite cool in 6x03, keep him that way. Don't let him fear death.5.
Longer life span after being revealed. Let him atleast live for about 2
or 3 episodes after his reveal.
5. Show him as the brilliant mastermind
we were searching for 5 seasons. Answer all or most of the questions.And
there you have it: he could've been a good Red John.

Theory #18916 • By Inplainsight
Show this theory

When the finale aired, understandably, most of on this site were irked and let down by the reveal that Thomas Mcallister was Red John.

But when you think about it, all the signs did point to him.

1) He "shook" Patrick's hands
2) He's a silent hunter, and can pop up at behind you silently
3) Likes to chase and be with red haired Women
4) Works in law enforcement, so can move around with little to no suspicion
5) Looks like the type to listen to that weird classical musical music lol

In short I'm very satisfied with the reveal. What do you think?

The signs were there all throughout the series, what a brilliant ending to the RJ Saga

This is the first time i ever put Macalister as Red john
on this site..

I dissed Heller for how the show turned out
but i was so wrong.

First off, secret groups whithin law enforcement
and politics are as real as day!

The whole image of "serial killers" in our society is a lie..

Monsters like Jeffrey Darmer or the Zodiac Killer are not serial killers.

They were the low life handlers that delivered victims to their bosses..

Satanist and Pedophillia cults are rampant in law enforcement and elite circles.

Red John was never a serial killer

He didnt have an M.o.

And we know this bc he killed more people on the Mentalist in
different ways than he killed by his apparent m.o.

Lorelie:
She lured girls in vegas to join red john.
A pimp or "madame" you can say..
Red john controlled her not because he's magic..
Its trauma based mind control not some trick..
Rj manipulated Lorelie by exploiting her past traumas..

Ok how did Red John guess Janes list..

Simple.
It was a trick like Jane said

How hard would it of been to fake Lorelie's death?
Rj owned the police!
And if you watch the scene where Jane finds her body..
1)she has less injuries than she did in the video
2) she showed no wounds and only had a white sheet covered in blood draped over her
3) the crime scene was shady in itself and police presence was minimal.

So rj kept lorelie alive and used her
He knew Jane was getting close so killing Lorelie right away would be stupid for him..

The Ba are aleister crowley "do what thou will" type of dudes..
Above God
Which is parellelled with Visualize Stiles type of thinking..

Only Rj left Visualize after the barn in 88'

He started selling meth like that episode implies..

And remember when Macalister , Bertram, and Reed Smith are all having a meeting together?
It was a meeting about "getting meth off the streets in Nappa Country"

Interesting..

Anyone remember the part AFTER Red John died? They were in the factory and it was booby trapped and Rigsby almost died? The factory blew up? Who was it that tried to kill them? I looked into it but no one has any answers/theories on it and they never arrested anyone.
