THIS WEEK

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.

I think it’s the forensic guy. He’s small. The person who shot the film makers was small (a woman or a small man). The two people who worked with Red John and later killed where in law enforcement (the deputy sheriff and the secretary). Remember when the secretary was killed Red John cut her with a poison. Someone no one would notice. Red John walk right past the guards and got to the secretary. Someone who could get strange poisons. Someone who knew how to shoot a gun.

I think it had to be the waiter, the voices are similar but so was the detective-after watching it twice already! Can you imagine if it were someone on the cbi squad though? I hope this wasnt one of the many tv series that were cancelled this year!

‘Roll Tide,’ the phrase that Kristina used when talking to the waiter in the first of the episode, was the last thing Red John said to Jane. Notice Red John also used present tense when speaking about Kristina. “She’s so fond of you” or something to that effect. RJ’s voice sounded female initially. Plus, when you go back to her previous appearance on the show, she knew entirely too much about Jane’s wife and daugther’s murders.

I think Kristina is one of Red John’s pawns. When she was confronted by Jane about going on TV, she had that serene look on her face, like she knew him so well. (Oh, I know…she’s a psychic. Whatever). She also talked about how Jane “lied about” Red John. She had the same look on her face, and calm speech that the secretary had when she was confronted…before she was killed, of course.
