YES, Ani, Brett Stlles is and always has been the No. 1 RJ suspect. The problem is that is SO obvious it's hard to believe he actually is RJ. There is absolutely no mystery or guesswork involved. Here's the drawback that bothers me: He simply does not fit any serial killer profile I've ever come across. It's true that serial killers don't need any motivation, but Stiles would have to be batshit crazy to mess around with random serial killings just for fun when his main ambition is to control as much of the world as he can through Visualize. Random serial killings would be just a pointless distraction. HOWEVER, perhaps the serial killings prior to and including Jane's family were done by someone else, now deceased or incapacitated by Stiles, and Stiles has picked up on the cat and mouse aspects of playing with Jane's obsession, ordering only those killings that keep the game going. So Stiles is RJ now but was not RJ then.

Continued-This is where Heller's analogy is untrue or slightly twisted. In the Where is Waldo game players have all the information they need to find him.Bruno Heller can only use the fact that he has shown us Red John in a photo and in the series. Now we have to use the clues! Nothing else applies to the where is Waldo analogy. Remember Bruno Heller also said He was a Moriarty type and a Napoleon of crimes. This does not sound like Brett Partridge but more like Brett Styles.

Hi black and white and red all over it, I like your theory and want to add to it. Bruno Heller is pretty slick and I think he used a mentalist trick on us by using the where's Waldo analogy. Waldo in his own right was pretty prominent. He was the big man on his turf. That was Waldo's gig. Here's the thing, we always knew who Waldo was, we just had to find him. Waldo never murdered anyone, left smiley faces or left clues about his dirty deeds! Here's the trick, you could look and look and look and not see Waldo when you were looking right at him. This is where Heller made his analogy. The same is true for the list of 7. They have been in the series and we have seen them throughout.

rationalgal: it would sort of spoil the fun if RJ acted like, well, RJ in real life. for instance, BP shows signs of being an alpha in his own world but not when confronted with the likes of Jane and Lisbon in theirs.

as a show runner, Heller is not going to give up the game, but i think the basic framework has been set up. there are a lot of ways to get us from point A to point B regarding RJ with what's been presented.
