Ya know what, NOPE, NOPE, NO! There is no way a goof like McAllister befuddled the CBI, FBI and Homeland Security. Every time I try to put this thing to bed, it won't go to sleep! What they wrote is just not that simple. They can go that route but we will all know what really happened. This, for me can not be totally explained away in some philosophical fashion. Some of it, yes. Definitely yes, most of it, not a chance. They have some tall explaining to do, they just do. If they don't, it is what it is!
@Rationalgal, you are probably right. if we take a page from the mentalist play book, it won't look at all like what has been suggested throughout the series. All the mythology and philosophy was used as a garnish to push the series along and add some mystery while the Red John arc was moving. If this is the case then there are no plot holes. It was just a device used to maintain interest. The series has always been written in a ambiguous and open ended style. If Red John represents the intangible, all that he did would then represent a manipulated slip from reality. That all he did was twist the reality of the people who followed him. We saw as viewers what he made them believe. His followers needed something to believe in, so he gave it to them. A mystical place in a place which allowed them to escape their own personal reality while they lived in reality. They were all professional and functioned normally except for their escapism. So to them it appears to be mystical and they have been led into believing they were a partof some grand plan. Dogma for lost souls. For the viewer it looked like exactly what it was, criminal activity at the expense of weak minded gullible people who needed an escape from their personal lives. If this is the case then it is truly over and McAllister was the right person. In this scenario everything fits, no plot holes or dangling threads. Just some sad people who got caught up. All the minions just Rebecca's. People who were so alone and thirsty that they would believe anything. That would be the reality of it and nothing more. Jane would also be a Rebecca because he was thirsty for fame, status and wealth. He needed to be somebody. He came up living in a trailer community of cons. A wanderer on the out skirts of society. He needed and wanted to be more then what he was. You can take the man out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the man. This is why Jane remained a con. The reality for him was he was exactly what he knew himself to be. He tried to have a dream but dreams and schemes don't work well together. He hated himself for trying to be something that he wasn't and dragging his family down that whole with him. His redemption will be realizing that, that's life. Jane never set out to get his family killed, it just happened. Even as smart as he is, he too was caught up in the Red John dogma like everyone else. In the end he lost ten years of his life and a family. Killing Red John didn't change a thing. So of they go this way, they will deal with the list in a small way and then Jane will get on with his life, THE END!
I think mostly this will be a residual effects clean up. I do believe the way it was presented, that McAllister was the serial killing pervert that was presented. What I also believe is since they were all below the dirt line, what McAllister was doing within the association was par for the course. He was just the most recognized. It didn't really matter what kind of dirt they were doing, just as long as their dirt didn't expose the group. I believe the clean up will fall on the upper echelons. The branches above the banal neanderthalish, psychologically mutated, mindless minions that were in the streets acting out their uncontrollable urges. What we were presented with were mindless, empty headed foot soliders. The are's is to do or die group. The lost souls that got caught with their hidden perverse cravings hanging out. The easily programmed and controllable murder troupe, the trojan horse. The intellect behind this force, the enlighten ones would never descend to the depths of their minions. The minions are a necessary evil to combat those who would seek to destroy their divine vision. Those who are to shallow to see or seek the light of wisdom. Only a select few, the ones who are gifted enough to see the divine path shall ever guide the people. They sit high and look low with the divine revelations of the future of mankind. Okay........... the mastermind, the string puller (s) they all think stupid shit like this and they would neeeever dirty their spiritual hands with murder. The enlightened thing to do is to get someone else to do it. A few murdered outsiders is just collateral damage and doesn't out weigh man's enlightened future. This is where the hocus pocus comes in. The divine powers that be are sitting on top and they hand down their divine judgements. Red John was the first veil they hid behind. When Jane got close they offered up the second veil which was the Blake Association and McAllister as Red John. Who would think to look any further? Smoke and mirrors, they both reflected back on each other. Now the little pea brained enlightened demon sitting at the top has uncontrollable urges too, but of course they are of a divine nature. It will not take long for this anal retentive individual obsessed with power pokes his or her head out again under a different auspice.
Why would the FBI, Alexia Schultz, follow the victim of a serial killer around for ten years? Why weren't the other victims followed? Why would the FBI waste that much time on one man? Interestingly enough, it is the same amount of time Red John spent chasing Jane. Now Red John is gone and the FBI is still in the mix.
Here's my point about the connections, four of Shultz's Agents were connected to a serial killer. That's a pretty high number and especially where FBI agents are concerned. Then we have Shultz connected to Kirkland, a lunatic murderer being supplied with information about Jane. Then we have Shultz / Bertram making shady deals and Bertram is a depraved killer. Then we have Shultz and O'Laughlin, whom she sent as a spy the first time. Then a mole the second time. The killer of Todd Johnson and he attempted to kill Hightower. The only reason Hightower was on the hit list was because she threatened to put Stiles into jail. Not only was Hightower on a hit list, she was setup and blamed for Todd Johnson murder. An investigation conducted by Le Roache, headed by Bertram who knew she was innocent. Alexia Schultz is connected to a lot of dirt! This woman has BLOOD ON HER HANDS! Every time I connect a dot, Alexia Schultz is there.
Last thing, the regional director use to report directly to the president. Then it was changed to reporting to another branch within the FBI which is the NCAVC which then reports to the president. NCAVC - NATIONAL CENTER FOR THE ANALYSIS OF VIOLENCE CRIMES!
All roads are leading back to Alexia Shultz! This makes logical sense in the scheme of things, who knows how they will deal with it? Also in Blue Bird, Jane pulls a case involving SCHULTZ!
I did an ERDS DIAGRAM on Alexia Shultz, this is what it turned up. Alexia Shultz had 6 agents involved in the Red John investigation. 1) O' Laughlin - Killed Todd Johnson, belongs to Red John and Schultz. Sent by Schultz to investigate the CBI and was a mole who dated Van Pelt. 2) Haffner - Works with Stiles and is a member of Visualize. Also worked for the FBI - Schultz. Then for the CBI, Bertram. 3) Darcy - Killed Wainright. Took the Red John files. Put out a shoot to kill in the WHOLE CBI TEAM. SCHULTZ' S AGENT. 4) Smith - Red John's man AND SHULTZ'S AGENT! 5) Abbott - Went to the island to get Jane to come back to the US. forced him to work for the FBI and is scared about what's on that list. SCHULTZ'S AGENT WHO MADE EVERYTHING GO AWAY! 6) Fischer - RECONNED JANE ON THE ISLAND, TRIED TO SEDUCE HIM AND FAILED.SPEAKING OF FAIL......SHE HANDS LISBON HER NEW FBI BADGE. (PROMOTED) BY SCHULTZ! Alexia Schultz's people connect like this; Alexia connects to Kirkland - HS Alexia connects to O'Laughlin, connects to Haffner, connects to Darcy, connects to connects to Smith. Smith and O'Laughlin connected to Red John, aka McAllister who connected to Bertram. Bertram connected to Shettdrick, Partridge, Le Roache, Haffner, Wainright, kirkland and McAllister. Shettdrick is connected to Volker and Ardiles, they connect back to Bertram who is connected to McAllister, who is connected to Stiles. RED JOHN HAS A FRIEND HIGH UP IN THE FBI! THE ONLY PERSON LEFT IS ALEXIA SHULTZ WHO SITS HIGH UP IN THE FBI AND IS INVOLVED WITH THE AUSTIN OFFICE! WHO HAS NOT BEEN SHOWN TO US YET! WHY?
@washgurl36, maybe this new agent will teach Jane some hand to hand combat. Then he can beat the hell out of Shultz when she shows her ugly face!
I did some looking into Alexia Shultz and found out that she is a Regional Director. One of the jobs of a regional director is the placement of leadership staff in the FBI offices in their region. I'm guessing that Alexia Shultz staffs the Austin office. I also find it interesting that Kim Fischer got a leadership position for going undercover on the island. So Alexia Shultz may have staffed and be in control of the whole Austin office. Abbott said their boss is a female named Shultz. Isn't that interesting?
