So much food for thought in this episode. I really do think Jane has a plan that involved being fired and saying he was finished chasing Red John.It was a different side of Patrick Jane in this episode. It was really an exciting episode. Next week's sounds like an edge of my seat episode.
@Sue Ann, was that not the 'Long con' play book that Lisbon played in season 2 when she pretended to crack?
I'm entirely convinced. Moreso, I see Jane is being personally moulded by Red John as he's personal pet or apprentice. And just like Analkin Skywalker he's being groomed. Come to the Dark side, my young apprentice...
One of best episodes this season.
Its quite clear Jane is playing a long con on Red John nad has some thought on the CBI bosss probably being involved in RJ stuff.The question still remains on if RJ won't turn it around against him.
And while its a con, it does showcase just how far and how dark Patrick can be.
You may be entirely right in all of your interpretations,and you are definitely right about hitting that man with the shovel.
However, I had a different view on the dinner of Bloody Marys. Jane had a very thoughtful look on his face, and I wondered for the rest of the show (and still do), whether he hit upon this as a new approach to getting Red John. He knows that he is watched; he can assume that RJ will be told of his actions, file-burning, firing, etc.
Jane has a lot of mental tricks to take himself away from what is going on in front of his face, to protect himself. It would not surprise me if this is all another trick. He has some regard for his co-workers, but not so much that it would bother him to deceive them yet again.
On the other hand, he did go nuts for a while after the murders of his family, so it is not impossible that he might crack again. Very interesting, indeed.
