I think Thomas McAllister was a very plausible Red John. I know not many will agree but yes Red John is described as a showman but he is also careful and clever. Everyone thinks that Jane and McAllister were nothing a like but I disagree. First off we didn't get to see McAllister enough  to tell if he was a lot like jane. But from what we did see at least what I saw there were a lot alike. Just look at Wedding In Red (6x3) Watch them both examine the body watch how McAllister points out things Jane missed but he is very careful about doing it as not to raise any red flags. (sorry for the red pun lol). I don't think it's too far fetched that he was RJ. ok that all I got to say now you can all tell me I'm wrong or not a true fan but I really I'm a fan of the show have been from the beginning and I think we would have been disappointed no matter who RJ turned out to be. He became this God like thing that was unstoppable for 6 years no one can live up to that.

WHAT THE FUCK DID THEY DO TO THIS SHOW??? WHY??? THIS HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST BALLDROP TRAINWRECK IN TV HISTORY !!!!!! ..........The Red John character/storyline was the most compelling thing on tv for the first 3 seasons .....Timothy Carter was the perfect Red John.....they should have ended RJ then and Season 4 could have been the "New Beginning" .........Season 5 have the B.A. as the villian. Season 6 C.B.I. Killer/ JISBON ................................................NOT A RJ FAKEOUT FOLLOWED BY 2 SEASONS OF A RJ JERKOFF....THEN THEY PICKED MCRedJohn OUT OF A HAT.......THEN IN ABOUT A SEASON INTRODUCE --"NEW BEGGINING" , ABBOTT, WHYLIE, FISHER.....CBI KILLER...JISBON....they dismantled the B.A. off screen and killed off Stiles and Haffner off screen .....they never mentioned RJ again ..... McRJ .....what a fuckin joke on us

If you re-watch closely the 6x08 "Red John", you'll notice something quite unnerving... Something much worse than RJ being McAllister...

Don't get it?

It's that, basically, you can replace McAllister by ANYONE ELSE with the same scenes and dialogues... IT WILL WORK THE SAME.

Neither McAllister, Jane, or anyone else refers something specific to McAllister... It's just... random!!! It could have been whatever suspect you'd like, the pizza guy... the scenes would have worked the same!!

I really wonder if this episode was written without any suspect in mind, just with "insert random RJ guy" for McAllister scenes, and then 3 minutes before shooting the episode, some guy came and say "oh hey it'll be McAllister I've just called Xander Berkeley he can come and do the episode right now!!".

RJ from 6x08 was just a fraud. The only RJ who can be acknowledged was the RJ from 3x24. The guy had it all...

Ohhh Stoopkid........Where are you?? You dumb fuck! I told you to meet me here after the finale.

Do you idiots finally accept Red John was the Sheriff?

The "Michael Kirkland" theory was beyond the dumbest I heard from you idiots!

Who is Red John?

Sheriff MacAllister.

FACT!

Now fuck off, losers!

For every one of you pieces of shit who hated the show, after RJ, there were tens of thousands who loved it.

11700 plus theories?? pathetic!

Hope you're fucking dead, Stoopkid, you faggot!

Awesome series, the entire way through.

...Now for a Jane prediction...  This theory will soon disappear due to too many "Implausible" votes...

Even though I feared it was probably going to end something like this, there was still part of me hoping we would hear that creepy music for one last time. Back in the time when I was hooked on this show, I was never really thinking how it will end, but I never, not once, imagined it would end up with a wedding. I mean, relationship between them is so unnatural and disgusting, I almost threw up. For me, they were always partners in solving crime and nothing more!

And what about Red John? We didn't get anything, not even a mention of him. I can't believe they never really tried to explain how he knew 7 names even before Patrick himself!!! That was a breaking point of the show if you ask me and not showing us how he could of know that is a biggest slap I've got from the TV show so far.
The problem was not in who Red John was, but the way how the episode (the most important episode!) was dealt with - very poor dialogues, no elaboration of Red John bio, wasted time running around, etc. And it was really stupid idea to kill RJ in same episode he was revealed! When you build someone through each season, someone so elusive and careful, who was always outsmarting Patrick and CBI, and at reveal, you portray him as someone who's not even equal to Rigsby...i don't even know what to say to that. The Red John storyline was one of the rare gems on TV, it had potential, great protagonist and very interesting antagonist, and I'm really saddened to see how it easily got ruined.

I've never seen any other TV show, or anything similar that people talked so much about and resulted with so many theories. This show wouldn't be as good without you. All your ideas and clues - thank you for all, I enjoyed reading them and participating in discussions. It was fun when it was cool! I would also just like to say that my favorite suspect was Ellis Mars.

The mind is a powerful machine, it can create reality.
