That's what I was talking about. It doesn't make sense that he did that. I don't think I know of anyone, if they were in that situation that would have done that. A man that has chased you down for ten years says can I show you something AND YOU SAY YES? I would have shot him just for trying that shit. It's stuff like this that lets me know that McAllister wasn't the mastermind behind Red John. I think McAllister was the serial raping killer behind Red John. But the more we turn this thing over it looks like something else was hiding behind that. We have the same thing with the Haibach arc. There are only two entities in the series that have been shown to have the skills to monitor phone lines. 1) Wiley and 2) Van Pelt. Who was always at the computer when all the Red John stuff came in? Van Pelt. Why didn't it come in on anyone else's computer? So for me the inner circle is still in play and McAllister was another sacrificial minion. 1) Carter claimed to be Red John 2) Bertram Claimed to be Red John 3) McAllister claimed to be Red John It seems that they are using the name Red John in a collective manner as if it is an entity unto itself. It's almost like what ever they do, it is claimed in the name of Red John. Its almost like Red John is an organization. 1) tyger, tyger was used for Blake and minions, but in two different ways. One as a signifier and the other as an identifier. But both used with the Red John name. McAllister used it to symbolize his ritualistic killings. 2) Then we have a message, he is man or mar. I'm thinking now it probably means he is many. 3) so is Red John an acronym?

That's a dam good way to sum it all up. I was thinking the same thing.They are going to do what they're going to do. The analysis was a lot of fun! 😃

These people, lived and died for Red John, there's no understatement, at all.

Everything that I have stated came from the series. I'm guessing if they are going to clear everything up. Their going back to visualize.Stiles is a dirt bag, I just don't think we've heard the last of him.

Anitraward1

Yep me too! That was so very well stated.

Here's my question to you Rationalgal, where do you think the mentalist will land when they return. Let's say neither one of us are right. But knowing show formatting, finding the middle ground, where do you think they well go next?

Anitraward1

I would worship him too, if I were an idiot!

@Rationalgal, I agree that Stiles is not Red John. But he could very well be the suit wearing, tea drinking wealthy, powerful puppeteer behind this whole mess. Alive and well, returning from the dead to fleece the shit out of his congregation for proving that he has the power to overcome death.

The reason why they had to make Red John bigger then life was to justify the moral imperative. They had to justify Jane's murderous behavior. There was no possible way to make Jane look like a good guy without upping the ante on Red John. To reduce Red John means they also reduce Jane to nothing more than a criminal that has the ability to manipulate the law. So in order to stay the course, they have to reopen the Red John files.

I love the show, love the concept, love the actors, loved all the stuff without Red John. Loved all the stuff with Red John until it went off the rails. You see I ain't buying the bridge. And I ain't buying that big ass line of hooey about we had to make him bigger then life crap. I am not a two year old and I need an explanation. If you made Jane real in all of his characteristics and Red John real in all of his characteristics, you can't reduce one without reducing the OTHER! NOT ADDRESSING THIS DOES NOT MAKE IT GO AWAY. THIS STORY ARC NEEDS TO MAKE SENSE. RIGHT NOW IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!
