@huisclothes-I feel like RJ is saying to Jane "well, i wanted to retire and devote my time to wine tasting, but if you insist on keeping the game going, I wouldn't want to disappoint you, so OK, let's play. But be careful what you ask for... "

@watcher maybe he does want to retire. he treated the panzer murder as a lark. he couldn't have seriously been angry at what panzer said, he just wanted to come out and play with patrick. certainly his stalking of darcy had the same quality. the wainwright murder was a taunt at the cbi and fbi -- and he knew wainwright had fired patrick and been a detractor of patrick within the cbi. lorelei's murder seems like the first in years where he's really put his heart into it. though she was arranged like the sleeping carny beauty for patrick's sake. he made it about the death of red john's and patrick jane's mistress.

@pahometowner - I think that would be a great ending, but I can't imagine CBS doing it. If this was on cable, absolutely. CBS is looking for safer endings. I expect we'll get a typical happy ending...Jane kills RJ, somehow does not go to prison, and is finally happy. the end.

I think the only way RJ would interest me for another season is if they revealed him to us in the season finale but didn't let Jane know. Then if in every episode, the very last scene would be a RJ scene showing us a glimpse of his life - interacting with minions, going about his business in his public life, showing us how he keeps tabs on Jane and team, etc. Similar to the Alexa Schultz/Kirkland scene in Red Dawn. Just one scene unrelated to the rest of the episode. That could interest me. But is they are just going to have one RJ dedicated episode out of every 5 or 6 that would bore me.

@pahometowner that is so intense i'm actually a little queasy just thinking about it. i think it's outside the tone of the series but that doesn't mean i'm not gonna think about it. it would really destroy all the wonderfulness that is patrick. i mean he would be ruined in retrospect. like living with a man you love and finding out he was a murderer the whole time.

@huisclothes - you're right - it is all centered around Jane. I really wouldn't call him a serial killer at this point. He is now just a criminal killing to cover up previous crimes. Seems he was serious about wanting to retire.

Huisclothes

@watcher. yes, of course, you are right. so that's 37 without the farm guys or wainwright.

@husiclothes. Yep. He would play both parts right up to the end when the personalities are integrated. Gruesome, eh?

Huisclothes

I'd love to get info about the 2 or 3 victims killed between red dawn and the pilot. we assume those were investigated by jane.

@husiclothes - in season 2 he also killed towlen morning and the reporter that interviewed kristina frye, and there were 2 snuff film students, so that adds 3 more in season 2 for 9 total
