I believe Patrick Jane IS Red John.
Before dismissing this theory think about it,
Red John is believed to be a manipulative, highly intelligent, man.
Red John is able to convince people to give up their lives for him willingly.
Kind of how Jane is able to convince the CBI to break laws for him,
Not to mention the countless other people who he has convinced into doing things.
Jane is smart, manipulative and to be quite honest I just don't think anyone
Could do the character "Red John" any justice other than Jane himself.
Red John has been made up to be this invincible, unbeatable guy,
I just can't see any of the chumps Jane's got on the list as being Red John.
Unless they can get Gary Oldman to play Red John then it's gotta be Jane himself.
No one else is worthy of the part. Unless of course it was lisbon but that's besides the point.
My theory is that Patrick Jane has split personality disorder.
He is completely unknowing of his other side.
He is fighting himself, and that's why it's so hard for him to catch this guy.
That's why it's so hard for anyone to catch this guy.
This is my theory.
