The sound of voice of Red John is the same voice than
Brett Partridge, so I say that it must be him.


I am starting to think that Red John i Patrick Jane


That is something Bruno Heller has always acknowledged @JQ. Personally, I've never been in it for the Red John reveal although I do enjoy the slow burn of that particular arc. The characters, their relationships, superb acting (from the main and supporting cast) and writing are what keep me coming back week in and week out. Still love this show and look forward to season 6!


Stopped watching after Season Two.
The Red John storyline has been stretched for far too long, with too many red herrings (pardon the pun). He has been built up as a super-duper villain so much that the final reveal, whoever he/she is, will inevitably disappoint.


On anagrams......I got Bitter Red Trap with "G" left over....out of Brett Partridge.

I want it to be Bertram, simply because he's pompous and arrogant and I don't like him, but I read a very persuasive argument on one of these boards for Haffner, so I'm going with him for now.

These are great theories! I like the anagram idea.
That would be very clever of the writers.


I don't get your Smith = John Smith ... but if it really had to be one of the people from the list I would also go for Reede Smith -> Anagram: the red is me


I'd say it's Reede Smith - Reede = Red, Shmith = JOHN Smith
Hence = RED JOHN :)


Red John is Kristina Frye.
