THE THEORIES

The writing is clearly written on the wall. The Red John chapter is not going to be re-introduced to the show. The show has taken a much different direction, as we all can see, and quite to the contrary to what others believe, Marcus Pike is nothing more or less than Marcus Pike, FBI Agent. He is not Red John.

Bruno Heller could not bring back Red John even if he wanted. The most he could do at this time is have the show answer some of the big questions remaining, but he cannot and will not choose this route.

It would bring the show back into Red John and it would create even more questions. The show did some bad writing for season 6, and that is how we are in this mess.

Yes, RJ should have been saved for the finale but it was not. I hate to say this but Red John was Macallister. Whether you accept it or not.

Sure, you can find websites claiming RJ may come back or this or that "may" happen. But when it comes down to it, nobody knows anything more than the next guy.

Bruno Heller is not saving anything for the end. He is not going to have a huge climaxing finish. The show will have it's share of crime fillers, but other than that you're going to see the cast move on. You're going to see Jane move on.

There is no more Red John. And soon enough, there will be no more Mentalist.

I'm not trying to be the pin that is popping your balloon, I am trying to tell you to open your eyes, and realize Red John is old news. You should enjoy the Mentalist on Sunday nights until it ends, and in the mean time enjoy your friends, family and  go to work. Not pounding the keyboard arguing about Red John.

Signing off to enjoy this nice spring day.

Out of curiosity, where are you folks getting the idea that Jane is going to be encountering any legality issues regarding Red John?

Because that is frivolous.

There will be no charges against Jane, for killing Red John (and yes, Macallister was Red John)

It's so obvious the show is setting up for a series finale. Not a season finale, but a series finale.

The remaining cast is going to go there own ways.

I know everyone wants Red John back, but it will not happen.

In just a little over 5 weeks, the only episodes you will be watching from there on, will be reruns.

Sadly, the show botched the Red John chapter, but he has already been revealed, killed and is no longer part of the show.

Does anyone know the last episode in which Frye appeared?  The one I remember is the one in which RJ takes her from her home at the end of the episode.  Is there another one after that in which she becomes a recluse of some sort, based on what some commenters are writing here?

I'm glad the site will close down and the series will finish.

Hi everyone, hard to wait until Sunday/Monday !

Maybe may we countdown our time-left until the release of the episode.
4 things might happen (decreasing probability) :
- the stalker will continue to grab more attention
- nothing unusual, everybody will post new theories
- the website will be down for a while due to huge amount of submit.
- everybody will be hacked by this goof on feet

Have faith people, maybe the episode will be good, at least we could learn more about Marcus Spike.

OK.  I know all you guys have your issues with the Red John reveal and I also am pissed at Heller for such a crappy deal he gave us.  But you know what my biggest pet peeve is that was NEVER mentioned?  LISBON'S GUN!!!   For GOD'S SAKE the woman's revolver was found on the dead body of the man who shot Gale Bertram!!!!!   How the hell do you think it got there??!!  Did a pigeon carry it off and land it there?  Why wasn't this HUGE piece of major crime scene evidence held against her as some sort of accomplice/ to commit murder-charge???!!!   Ohhhhhhh  Noooooooooo.........  Let's just wipe it under the proverbial rug ... flash forward two years and without any questions make her a sheriff.  ----- Don't get me wrong, I love Lisbon but c'mon Heller... you specifically built up the scene in which Jane begged Lisbon to give him her gun to take to the church.  I guess we are supposed to think if a cop's gun is on a criminal without a reason but hasn't been fired it's totally OK 'cause ...you know... it's not like she was there or anything, right?    Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!

Hello blokes and sheila's. I have to agree that The Mentalist is probably going to come to a close next month. I'm actually from Launceston and the show is enormous here. (Yes, I am a Taswegian, so hello to my fellow Tanzanian's!)

Regardless, the fellow poster is on the right track. Bruno Heller has confirmed Red John is finished and will not return. Our hometown bloke, Simon Baker, has confirmed this too.

From what I read, most of you are upset how things panned out. I am not terribly disappointed; but think it could have been written differently.

With that said, it is up to you how you take things. Some mates love how Macallister was the masked man, some are irate.

Either way, try to enjoy the final few episodes, because the show will be signing off.

Cho and Lisbon, are the next to go, so you know.

What I tell you, is good oil.
