I think chasing the rabbit represents his desire for Lisbon.
well this was kind of interesting about an eagle claw in a dream:
"An eagles claw in a dream will be drawing your attention to something you are doing spontaneously of a spiritual nature without the remembrance of when or how you learned it."
It's interesting because Jane forgot what he did with the eagle's claw, didn't he?
I got Lisbon-she was the maid who represented St. Teresa. I don't know what Cho represented. But Rigsby being give that claw adds a whole different dimension to Rigsby. It wasn't by mistake that all this happened. These are the puzzles that the show present that I think we need to figure out.
So, one thing that hits me is the rabbit is found in the big covered pot. He's afraid to open it at first but he does and is charmed by what he sees, takes it out, tries to hold it but loses it when he gives Rigsby the eagle's claw. Chasing it leads him to the garden gate and his daughter.
I want to know what you all think, your take. What I saw after watching it again, was Jane also working on the Red John connections as well. What I thought was could Cho, Rigsby and Lisbon be symbolism's too. I found that they were. I will continue to work on their roles in his hallucination.

Entwife, yes! the simbolism was also Jane trying to figure out what was going on with Red John!
There is too much dirt in the CBI, I can see this scenario playing out! Rigsby! He just seems like a likely candidate! I can see! Yep! Rigsby! Rigsby and Van Pelt! Van Pelt and O'Laughlin! Van Pelt and that lawyer! Van Pelt and Stiles! HuH? She's batting a hundred here folks! Yep! Rigsby!
I can totally get that Jane handing the eagle's claw to Rigsby almost immediately having received it, and then forgetting what had happened to it, was pretty strange. He handed it to WR and dropped the rabbit in the same act.
@anitraward1 I saved the page that had your symbolism on it the last time we talked about Devil's Cherry a few weeks ago. I just looked it over and really can't add much. To me the most important part was Charlotte, from his subconscious, was actually speaking Jane's own reality. I really loved that, it was so coherent. Are you thinking of a certain part of the symbolism you talked about? Does it make even more sense to you now?
Contined-then we see Rigsby go after Jane for being a know it all and toying with him. While all hell is breaking out, Van Pelt realizes that she should have known it was Rigsby all along. Then.... a flash back, to Van Pelt's childhood! A unveiling of her tragic childhood, the revealing moment that she realizes that she should not have hidden her life from herself and others. That her own self loathing caused her to choose the men that she did. And then! and then! Back to the brawl!
Do you mean Rigsby as a minion or as Rj?
I could just see in the end Rigsby breaking down to his British accent and going crazzzzzy in the CBI bull pen after Jane plays with him for awhile! Jane, hinting but never really saying that he thinks it's Rigsby. Jane psychologically breaking him down over the course of a few episodes. All the while you see Rigsby's transformation to his true self!
You know, as I watched it again for the umf-teenth time, I got to thinking that, wouldn't it be something if one of the people in the CBI inner circle was a Red John Minion! It would explain how Red John was getting all of his information. Now let's take Van Pelt for instance, she seems to have a popensity for attracting no good men! Every last one of her men were creeps! And let's take Rigsby for instance, he is easily manipulated and thus a really good candidate for.... oh let's say hypnosis and your basic brain washing technics. In the Devil's Cherry, the spanish maide gave Jane a eagle's claw and told him it would help him find who did this. Jane gave the claw to......Rigsby!
Now I want to know what you all thought about the symbolism in The Devil's Cherry!
I'm off yeah!
Me too! Tis a delicious piece of fiction. I'm grateful for every episode.
I have to say that Ruby Slippers was one of my favorite episodes. Still makes me cry every time. I aired it for a group of DVD watching friends, mostly guys, mostly straight. After we watch a DVD (we do a mix of many topics) we discuss it. After this one there was dead silence for a couple of minutes and I could tell they were so emotionally engaged it was difficult to speak. Then there was Jane's face at the end. Just so compelling! Deep pain over his loss mixed with joy for the young man. Beautiful acting! It's one of the reaons I love The Mentalist. There are a lot of deeply human, emotional and philosophical ideas presented. Lots to think about. So it's not coherent, so what? It's commercial TV so we have to expect that.
@bonaduz glad you enjoyed. would be a good episode.
KM: Thank you for the Givenchy add. Mmmmm...
Ah thank you Entwife. We call that game Mikado.
Had a good laugh at your ep. 26 Huisclothes. And the flagellating monks are great too!
Hi bonaduz-- pixie sticks are a child's game. It's a box of slender, long colorful plastic sticks. They're dumped in a pile. A turn is removing a stick without moving any other stick. If you move one, it's the next person's turn. Most sticks at the end of the game wins. As a competitive sport, it's about as exciting as watching molasses drip. Just the stupid thing to delay The Mentalist yet again.
Entwife: What are pixie-sticks?
