I auto DVR this show but when I see Red John or Lorelei in the blurb - it's an automatic delete show for me. I'm over it with this Red John story line. I used to enjoy this show and Patrick's shenanigans-but no longer. I see that many enjoy this story line, but I like the crime solving and not the obsessions that seem to be the new trend (Shelborne in Hawaii 5-O etc.) To each his own.
This ep was pure crap. I zoned out the entire ep. No idea what hbappened
The handshake bit a red herring? I hadn't considered that possibility--silly me, I still think RJ is a security guard, who else would have had access to Todd Johnson's cell and set him on fire?
Whenever I see Currie Graham, I get worried. There's a better than even chance that any character he plays is evil!
Lisbon has been pretty consistent in being influenced by Jane (and before Jane, Bosco). Even when she's disagreed with either of them (her partners) she's only raised it like something to be considered, like a "maybe if such and such is a problem, it's because ..." I don't think it's a weakness on her part, more the band-of-brothers, the thin blue line. Remember when Jane needed a prisoner released or he'd turn Jane in -- and she just walked in and punched him? It's also gone the other way, Jane supporting her and getting her off when she's been in trouble, both when she was accused of murder (via her psychologist) and when he Lisbon's whole team had to pay for not controlling Jane (and he destroyed another team so they'd be brought back). As Billy the Kid's gang said: "Pals."
The fact that Jane mentioned Dean Harken at the beginning then was glossing over his name at the end cant just be a coinicidence. The writers are doing it for a reason and theres a chance it is to create suspicion about him? Why? Im not sure, seems kind of random to bring back someone from 3 yrs ago who didnt stand out. Maybe the Code Red and virus in some way is connected to Red John? Also its more than just the idea of handshake, she said "the moment you shook hands"--the implication here isnt that this is just some one time shake hands and never see each other again. There is some repeated interaction between the two. We might not have seen this character yet but its not going to be some totally trivial person. I'm still of believe RJ is a group and its not as simple as finding one person and saying TADA! I think the idea of the handshake being a red herring is intruiging, but Lorelei didnt even realize she said it so I'm not so sure although maybe that just makes things even deeper
Lorelei was convinced Red John would get her out of jail. If RJ is Brett Styles, then he did.
Why bring back Sarah? The only reason she ever existed as a character at all is because she is the next O'Loughlin... she's a RJ follower. It will become a fight for Ben.
I'm not going to look for anymore handshakes, I knew it was a red herring!
The hand shaking thing was really bugging me! Lorilei said, you are just like him, when you shook hands I'm surprised you didn't become best friends. Now I assumed this meant everyone we would see Jane shake hands with. Lorilei never said or indicated that, how would she know. The biggest message was that Jane knows him and that he is just like him.
HERE IS MY THEORY; There seems to be a lot of meaning in meaning messages. I think Jane is on a fools errand. The handshake is a symbol and a oxymoron. The word handshake has another meaning. Look the word up and you will see.
Here was the craziest thing that happened. Spell the word backwards DNAH EKAHS. Using a anagram formula DNA HE K? HAS! TELL ME IF I have gone nuts!
I would hate to see Mashburn as Red John. of all the guests on The mentalist, he was my favorite. Reminded me of Jane, without all the mind games and stuff. But I feel it's pretty obvious that he will play a part in our next Red John chase. Only, because the last page Jane flipped through(before the show cut off) had his name on it. But then, I could've missed something :o
Great episode lots of Jane,Lisbon banter. I loved Jane's comment about aura to the real estate guy.I wonder if Sara and Rigsby are sharing custody of baby Ben because last time we saw him he was with Rigsby. I don't think Minelli is Red John. The FBI agent and the homeland security guy in the limo told him that Jane had been in a mental institution if he was Red John he would have known that already. I love to guess at who he is.
Great review! Mansburn and Minelli have been from the beginning my main suspects. But Mansburn has the profile of a murderer, nice guy but that acts like an arrogant, cocky, and unscrupulous, clever and rich (so powerful). Minelli only has going for it occupied a position in which he could manipulate the evidence. And both had very good relationship with Lisbon. I like this episodes
