I'd believe that darcy was the one working with Red john before i would think jane is.

Jane can't turn out to be an evil bad guy (being a con man et al makes him interesting, like "bad boy", not bad). The simple reason is that it would ruin the millions of dollars they would all get a piece of in syndication. That doesn't mean they won't try to play games with the fans for the fun of the twists -- Simon Baker has pretty much said as much about the twists in interviews. Still, I would think they would have to do something new each time (meaning wouldn't Wainright being RJ's guy be a repeat of Bosco's secretary and wouldn't Darcy being killed or driven insane be a repeat of the psychic who went crazy?).

the most interesting moment to me was when darcy told jane that he was a cruel man. jane holds up a mirror to people's faces and they don't often like what they see. he asked to do the reading to put her in a one-down position. telling someone they're an inept seducer cuts very deep. and the narcissistic blow had her reeling. she pretty much hates him. of course, that's what makes jane so powerful and beguiling. when he uses his powers for you, it's thrilling. when he uses them against you, it's pretty devastating. bruno heller is a great writer. he makes some of the other writers on the show seem like they're playing checkers to his three-dimensional chess.

Jane is definitely not Red John, nor is he a disciple. Red John is attracted to Jane as an extraordinarily able opponent. RJ loves the competition. Jane remains obsessed with getting revenge, so he continues the competition. When Jane did that reading of Darcy, most of what he said also applied to his own life, as shown by the expression on Jane's face when he finished. (What a GREAT face actor Simon Baker is!!) Now that it is known that Jane did not kill the real Red John, I expect RJ will murder someone fairly close to the CBI team to keep the chase going - and MAYBE make the murder look like Jane was protecting RJ, as Darcy claims. I LOVE this series! Great story, great acting, the works!

I thought before that Wainwright might be one of RJ's disciples, RJ always has to have a connection close. After last night, I think that Darcy could be a RJ disciple, but she may also think its someone in CBI, thinking it is Jane, but its really Wainwright. I love how the writers like to lead people to different conclusions, makes it interesting. I don't think that Jane is RJ or one of his disciples. Unless this is the end of the show, which I have not heard anything about that. For those who believe this, then why would they have someone suspect Jane as being RJ at this point? Nope, not buying it.

Jane is not Red John. It's imposible Jane to be RJ but Darcy wants them to believe it. Is she RJ friend?

If the CBI boss trend stands, Wainwright should be played out by the season finale.

Minelli - 208
Hightower - 316
Wainwright - 424?

I dont believe jane is red john nor jane has a brother or any family relation. Darcy i believe has connection to red john. last nights episode it seemed jane hit a topic to her that almost broke in tears. I think she has something to do with Red john. not just a fbi agent. think about it red john has used woman before in the past. remember red john had a woman working in the CBI and literally spied on Jane's team. Going bak to season 2. What if darcy is related to red john maybe father or lover and shes here to mess around with Jane. So thts my theory.
