Note to LaoHao88, Red John is as dead as bin Ladin. Cause of Death (C.o.D.) in both cases "Severe lead poisoning"

Great ending. I prefer ending a TV season with a BANG rather than a cliffhanger. Does anyone know why Red John's devotees are willing to die for their leader? How many people are under his spell and to what end? As for GUPTA the gas station guy slipping out of handcuffs, anyone in law enforcement can confirm that link-style handcuffs can be defeated by prisoners who are extremely nimble and flexible. Note to OLGA, that's the difference between a police officer who is sworn to uphold the law and an annoying dilletant like Patrick Jane.

Kudo's to the best suspense drama series in modern history. The original NCIS runs a close second with the cancelled Medium a not too distant third.

Great finale!!!
Regarding the question why RJ knew to be at the mall - I think he just followed Jane, simple as that. Once O'Laughlin told him it was all a ruse to lure him out, he left it to O'Laughlin to kill off Hightower and followed Jane instead to see what happens. I don't think the bracelett was a listening device, if it were he would have been in on the plan earlier on. Also I don't think he planned to come actually face to face with Jane. It just happened and he tried to make the best of the situation. But I still believe that Kristina Frye is somehow connected to RJ - before watching the finale I actually believed it would be her turning out to be RJ somehow. I thought she was creepy.

Red John was shot, but did he die?

Although as viewers we know it was a cold-blooded killing by Jane, Red John was in possession of a gun with hollow-tip bullets when he was gunned down by surprise. So unless a witness was closely following the interaction of Jane and RJ, the security guards and the police are going to find the dead RJ with a gun on him -- allowing the self-defense plea for Jane. And although Jane knows he did it in cold blood and is unafraid of owning up to that, I am going to bet that Lisbon and the others try to convince him to let his lawyer plead self-defense to keep him out of prison and still working with his CBI "Family."

Hello, I also liked the finale, it was mind twisting, although there were some obvious, like the FBI fiancee being the mole, I knew that wedding wasn't gonna happen. I think that P. Jane's way out of the murder charges will be something very technical, I am sure Red John was wanted dead or alive. He was armed and known to be dangerous, etc. I also think that LeRouche still has something to do with RJ so the next season will be interesting. It's sorprising that CBS let a main character get sweet reveange and not take the high road, this being the case of HOratio Cane from CSI Miami who didn't kill his wife assasin and the BLue Bloods where the killer of the Reagan's son shot himself.

The plan to assign a different hotel room to each suspect was good. If Grace had not told her friend the details of the plan they would have maintained the upper hand. Grace was gullible, available and close enough to Jane to be manipulated. Bertran called someone after Jane visited his office. What if all the suspects were in on it? Jane was either followed or the telephone line was bugged in the police station. The only logical scenario dictates that Red John must be dead.

I thought Patricks psychic girl friend Kristina would reappear and help finding or identify RJ.

There are a lot of unanswered questions. Assuming RJ is dead, what about uncovering his whole network? He clearly had a lot of influence. This ties in Britt Stiles (Malcolm McDowell), and also Kristina Frye. So far, all they've done is decapitate the group.

Also, what was RJ doing at the mall? That trap was only supposed to work if Bertram was the mole.

How did Gupta get his handcuffs off? It looked like LaRoche or someone slipped him a key or a pick.
