I want to start by saying that the Mentalist is without doubt my favourite TV program ever.But the fact is, we know who Red John is. This website has served its purpose. Like someone said a few weeks back, this website has died. It was good while it lasted but there's no point having it up anymore. It's just become a place for some people to moan and others not to care. In fact, it makes me depressed each time I see it.So please, remove this website. Bring on Season Seven!
Simon Baker at a recent WB press conference:
“The experience that we had last year, in the last season—it was really interesting because you have the arc of what a story is and what the story should be. Then you have the idea of the business outside of that, of whether it will continue or whether the story is finished.
“If you ask me, the original story that we started off with and laid out in the pilot episode many years ago—that story finished probably around the end of the second season. When was Bradley Whitford (in the show as a man who convinced Patrick he was Red John but was not)? Like third season? I don’t know. They all blend into one."
He goes on to talk about Jisbon so I won't include it here. Just found his "opinion" (whilst among WB execs) to be interesting and similar to some thoughts expressed here recently.

HOW DAFUK RED JOHN KNEW 7 SUSPECTS EVEN BEFORE PATRICK???
this show went bananas.
RJ's characteristics in total...simply do not match up, and I've long though RJ was two different people [or many].
RJ No. 1 is refined, loves Bach, wears fine suits, sips tea the right way, appreciates beauty and women [Harker, Lorelei] is clearly educated, clever, manipulative, with extensive knowledge of many things, including surveillance, as well as hypnosis. This RJ is persuasive, and as such must be a lover to have such a devoted female following, but he is also a power hungry egomaniac psychopath who believes he is a god amongst others. However, I doubt this RJ would get his hands too dirty. He has minions, for this RJ is the MIND, the CREATOR, the ARCHITECT...
RJ No. 2 is not refined, and has the ability to kill in a way that would make anyone else sick. This is the small time worker, though someone on a power trip, too, albeit on a lower lever. He has the ability enough to carry out his deeds with his own hands, and knows very well what it is he specifically knows, but is not broadminded enough to resist being manipulated by someone smarter. This is someone, who under the right influence [or hypnosis] could be manipulated to do to people what he has long done to animals. This is the HUNTER, the WORKER, the STOOL PIGEON...
So, did Patrick Jane fulfill his mission and kill the man who killed his family?
I THINK YES. I think McAllister was the man who did that deed, physically, and as such, it was appropriate for Season Six, ep. 8 to have happened [even if I still don't like the WAY it happened]
McAllister was RJ No. 2
THIS IS THE ONLY WAY SEASON SIX CAN BE EXPLAINED as having been LEGIT and would make sense for why things were so confusing....Jane knew that McAllister was the one, but also that he was RJ No. 1's decoy
RJ No. 1 sent McAllister to kill Jane and frame Bertram because HE KNEW Jane would be ahead of McAllister. RJ knew he could count on Jane to get rid of McAllister for him in the name of revenge. And in RJ's sick, warped mind, he probably thought that he was giving Jane a gift, an emotional catharsis, handing over to Jane the man who killed his family.
ANOTHER STOOL PIGEON: HAIBACH -- it was RJ who killed LaRoche and Ardiles, just like he killed Wainwright and Bosco...NO WAY small timer Haibach masterminded an elaborate surveillance plot....RJ was using Haibach to try and take out Grace and Wayne...
SO......Jane is still hunting, waiting patiently and playing the game...because...
The question that remains: WHO IS RED JOHN No. 1....?
GRACE VAN PELT
What annoys me about Thomas McAllister being red john is that the same actor (Xander Berkeley) acted as a character with a secret organisation already in nikita.
I tried to defend this show and what bruno heller was doing but I just cant anymore. Ive got no faith left whatsoever in this tv show and the red john storyline. Heller had planned everything up until timothy carter, but due to high ratings and the show being renewed, he had to invent that timothy carter was not actually the real red john. From that point on heller had no idea what he was doing, all his clues of the past made no sense and he was just trying to extend the story for the money. When finally there had been enough waiting he had to decide who red john was, he had no idea so he just picked a random guy who made no sense whatsoever, but heller didnt care, he just wanted the red john story to be over because he had no clue what else to do.
Heller is already doing his new tv show gotham and doesnt give two shits about the mentalist. He is just milking its last moments with the jisbon storyline because he knows he has a big audience in there.
Dont expect red john in 13 episodes of season 7. It will most likely revolve around jane and lisbon and weekly cases thats it. Heller wants to end this so he can concentrate on gotham, he doesnt care about the fans or the story, leaving the red john thing without any answers. Well ofc there are no answers, because he had no clue what he was doing. How is he gonna provide answers if he made up everything even if it didnt make sense. Fuck heller
