because I didn't understand what it was about, timoty carter showing up there and what if Jane hadnt heard the phone/found out about him? what was his plan? why was he there? there wasnt even a message for him and he had a gun. mmm I thought the end didnt make much sense and at the same time we didnt know that man and Heller said we did know him so from that point of view I'd say they didnt mean it to end like this (I mean the real end of the show) but then why?

thanks Bonaduz!
When I watched S03 finale for the first time I basically didn't know who RJ was or anything (as I hadnt seen many TM episodes before) but got caught in the suspense of the epi etc. Then rewatching it made me think about all this. If RJ knew that Jane was going to be at the mall with Bertram, then he must have had spied on him but how? Is it Grace who told O laughlin who then called RJ? who did RJ know?? I think TC was just a minion and he probably didn't kill jane's wife and child, RJ must have told him details to turn the knife in a bit more. But I do believe there was a last minute change of plan from the writers/producers.

Mimi: first - wish you the best of luck with the euromillion! fingers and toes crossed :-)

Timothy Carter: Is he a RJ minion? I guess he was. And maybe he is the one that killed Jane's family. RJ sent O'Laughlin with Grace to kill Hightower, but at the same time probably kept an eye on Jane, either by watching Jane himself or by watching him through another minion (CBI Ron?). Then he sent Carter to the mall to taunt Jane. BUT - why did Carter turn his back on Jane? He (or RJ) should have expected that Jane would want to kill the murderer of his family. Was RJ willing to sacrifice Carter, just to see what Jane would do? Was Carter that much under RJ's control that he played the game? Or maybe the writers did change things at the last moment! Whatever, it was a gripping episode nontheless!

Im watching the S03 finale and wondered, how did Timoty Carter know Jane was going to be at the mall? what was his intention? as we know he doesnt want to kill Jane (although he's got a gun) or was it the writers' intention at first but then because they could have another season, they changed the end? like it was RJ but then season 4 was accepted so they changed it?

KM I know that it was not necessarily an excuse. I can relate to what you said.
I hope we get to have another season. fingers crossed!

I think if one of the team had to be RJ it would be Cho, also because he knew the poetry tyger tyger.. but don't think it's any of them. also we know less about Cho than Rigsby.

@ Mimi,
Thanks, love. My health, despite the exhaustion of being a caretaker, is fine. No. I was not offering an excuse. My statement was factual and fitting with both my attitude and outlook on life in that moment. I have clinical and philosophical look on life. So no worries. I don't mind hearing the physical admiration for Mr. Baker. I do think him a lovely packaged human appearing both bright and kind. I envy him his surfing prowess. I come here for the story. The Mentalist is delightful piece of a fiction and I enjoy the escapism. When the time comes, I will be sorry to see the end. I hope it is a grand one, with heaps of drama and human emotions and love.

Interesting theory on the symbolism in Devil's Cherry being put forth here.
I see Rigsby as the opposite of Red John, so if it his him then it would be one hell of a surprise. Seems odd to me in Season 1's finally that he was with Cho identifying Dumar buying the elephant when Red John was sipping tea and watching Dumar encourage Jane to go down the trap door to the basement. Seems that any time we have a sighting of Red John or a body part, Season 2 finale or Roy sipping tea while at Roselyn's, Rigsby can be accounted for. Hence, I'm not sure about Jane's hulicination with the maid and eagle claw and its meaning. It could have been specific to the case, meaning that Jane would figure out it was the neighbor.

I think Jane's favourite phrase is "Liar Liar Pants on Fire" :-D
