I am probably an idiot for asking this, but why the title Red is the New Black? Anyone know?

They seem to be toying with us with hints that Jane could be Red John -- and not just in the show, but in interviews, like they really love being as twisty as they can get. What I think, though, is that shows make a lot of money in syndication and I don't think they'd make near as much if the main character turns out to be an evil, insane serial killer.

I, for one,don't think Jane is Red John. I think he knows Jane very well and is someone we all wouldn't even guess. Maybe Roselind is in on the murders; and it was creepy the way she was playing the piano... And, remember, the FBI agent was the last to see the morgue attendant.... Good storytelling.

Simon called it the gag murder of the week and he meant that it was a vehicle to insert oneself into the charactor's psyche. I think R.J. went back to Rosalin in order to complete his mission of misdirection, i.e. why kill the morgue attendant and not Darcy as previously teased. Why all the secrecy about releasing the files, Wainright is not a favourite of mine. Rosalin seemed to be in a trance (remember Kristina after R.J.) with the blood on her hands and playing Bach furiously and not sensually as before.
As a side point, who did the hair and makeup for this episode, Simon looked tired and overcoiffed lately, Amanda with the cheap eyeshadow and Robin's hair and pale face looked rattled and not by Jane.

Did you notice that Roselind had blood on her hands as she played the piano? Maybe she isn't as innocent as we think she is. I loved all the twists and turns in the episode. It kept me on the edge of my seat.

I don't think Jane is Red John, at least I really hope the writers do that, but I believe there is a connection because of that scene. Does anyone remember that the reason Jane where's the vest is because his councellor dressed that way? Or maybe Red John picked up the tea from Jane. There seems to be a strong connection between the two. Also wasn't Rosalind acting strange when they all arrived. As clever as she is I can't believe a body, or anything, was put into her closet without her knowing.

I totally agree with Tyler. The regular stories are just fluff compared with the Red John mystery. I think Red John's next victim will be the female FBI agent. But if Red John really wanted to mess with Jane he would go after Lisbon. That would really send Patrick over the edge.

I think its a woman maybe a ex lover of Patrick Jane.

I think Red John is Patrick Jane. He has Dissociative identity disorder. Either that or his dad. Also in the last episode you see the blind woman Rosalind sitting down and the guy who she knows as red john crossing his leg and drinking tea same as Jane.

I agree Red John is the reason why I started watching these show to find out who he is
