I was thinking about the mentalist today and something occurred to me about Jisbon. Haffner told Lisbon and Van Pelt to stay away from Jane because he has angered a lot of powerful people. And that they could get hurt if they stayed around him. I was thinking either they will become the dynamic duo or they are going to have a love affair and then remain friends. I don't think Jane, if it goes this route, will or even be able to bare the idea that Lisbon could be hurt being around him, if this is not over. Something is still going on. In the episode White as the driven Snow, the man in Rigspelt house was wearing tactical gear and protective goggles. His first shot hit the diaper bag dead center. Rigsby was standing next to it and is a bigger target. It had to be an intentional miss. Also who the hell would know where the weak security point was in the house unless they had knowledge of security installations. Haibach was way to stupid for any of that. I'm believe someone offered Haibach and opportunity for revenge and set it up for him. Haibach was screaming and yelling that he wanted revenge when he was being put in the ambulance. I'm wondering now if there wasn't someone at the scene that over heard what he said.
That's why I love trying to figure out where this show might go. There is a lot of good stuff in the series! I love turning over every rock!
What you say is very interesting because it's in line with what I was saying. Jane has now opened himself up. What if this was just a game by the string puller to get Jane to a point where he could utterly destroy him. Jane has killed two people who said they we Red John. The string puller lets Jane think he's won and has his vengeance for himself and his family. AND THEN BOOM! He starts playing games again. Only the types of games Jane would notice. The kind of games that would make Jane question his sanity. How could he convince anybody of the truth without putting himself in jeopardy. The game with Jane and Red John was pretty sinister to begin with. But to return and slowly creep back into his life via a different form would be even more sinister and in keeping with the character that was presented throughout the series. Someone just waiting to get that last piece of Jane the same way they did K. Frye. Someone waiting to strike just when Jane thinks he has battled his demon and won. Allows Jane to walk into his new life with a happy heart full of intentions and then shows Jane that he has been controlled this whole time. Manipulated by a power that never had any intention of letting him go or be at peace. The game that was being played was obsessive, devious and maniacal. In the course of the game many people were brutally murdered. Why would who ever this is just stop having a obsessive compulsion such as this? They were playing a cat and mouse game. Cat's play with their prey, disorienting it and then.............!
@Rationalgal, that's what I'm talking about, where's Waldo? That was petty slick in retrospect. It means that they were always going to use someone from the series even if they hadn't made a choice. The story leaned very heavily towards Stiles and Visualize. I think it still does, why would they put Jason Cooper on a suspect board with Haibach?
Now that is really funny!
That's what I'm talking about!
I think the biggest mystery for me about you, is the fact that you're here at all. So why are you here? I know why I'm here. And why are you chasing me down so hard for a fight? If you have a point to make, well....make it. I'm busy! Busy trying to solve a mystery! Look, master class writers have their place and the mentalist has its place. I currently occupy the space in the mentalist place. Now if you can tell me how what you are talking about relates to how I can solve this mystery, then by all means, have at it! If not, I suspect you and your master class expertise can figure out the rest!
I read an article by Heller and he said he would go back to Red John if he needed to. There are lots and lots of articles floating around with the cast saying all kinds of things. The one thing I'm sure of is we are not going to get any real answers about what's going to really happen in an episode. They tease everything and most of there interviews are very ambiguous. We have seen them say they weren't going to do certain things and they did anyway. What that tells me is that anything can happen. The biggest part of the series is that it is a serialized mystery. Which means they are not going to tell you anything. What they have been very good at is doing a whole lot of talking without saying anything. The show appeased the Jisbon fans, which is something they laughed at when they first heard it. The Red John fans aren't happy and they may try and wrap this thing up by appeasing them. All I know is we have mystery quietly brewing, lurking in the background, until they decided to move it forward. Basically all any of us are doing is speculating on what will happen. We will only know what happens when we see it unfold in the episodes. There are really only three things that can happen. 1) They completely move forward with Jisbon. 2) They go after the Red John connections, such as Visualize / FBI. 3) They reopen the Red John case. Which was never really shown to be closed be any law enforcement agencies. They just made it all go away. 3)
I have eliminated everyone from the inner circle as being string pullers. They are all to young. I don't eliminate them from any type of involvement. R. Harker, to young too but she is involved. Darcy is involved somehow, all her actions showed it. But I don't see her as a string puller either. K. Frye and Alexia Shultz are closer to meeting the criteria of string puller. I'm leaning more towards Shultz because she sits in a seat of power and was accessing on all law enforcement levels. She was making shady deals and keeping up with Jane for the whole ten years. Shultz also made a deal with Bob Kirkland who turned out to be a deranged killer. Shultz has been involved since the beginning, out of sight but very, very involved. Two of her guys were connected, one to Visualize and one to the Blake Association. She is also the right age. The FBI had Agent Wench inside Visualize. Haffner worked for the CBI, FBI and Visualize. So he worked for Bertram, Shultz and Stiles. We also have Darcy who worked for Shultz and chased Jane down and made him admit Red John was still alive. Then didn't do anything about it. She killed Wainright after playing games with him. I almost forgot about Smith! Well it seems that the FBI is as dirty as the CBI and you know what happened to them. It looks like the FBI is trying to cover their tracks. This could be the reason that the CBI is now the FBI. This could also be the reason they offered Rigspelt a job too. KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE AND YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER! So why is the FBI chasing Stiles so hard? What did or does he know about them? Also the head person at the Austin office is a female named Shultz.
We are enjoying the show and this is how we enjoy it even more. I plan to analyze this show until it's over. Oh, and then I plan on a post analysis too! I'm having fun with this show. I like trying to figure out where it might go!!!!!!!!!!
