Last thing, the unstable Kirkland wiped the powered sugar from Jane's jacket like the Red John patted Jane in the season 3 finale. It indicates familiarity and a closeness similar to family. For me the obsession Red John shows is or could be seen as a sibling rivalry of sorts. Everything shows that Jane and Red John come from similar backgrounds. The similarities show connection. How or why, I can't put a finger on, for now.
Let me not forget that the Kirkland's were raised all over the US, as if in a carnival type setting. Why are these strange anomalies being presented without answer?
Also season 5 shows that Jane and Rigsby were both raised in Carson Springs. Why?
I rewatched the 100th episode and I'm positive that Jane incerted himself into the Red John investigation or was incerted by Minnelli. Jane shows up disheveled, stuttering and stammering, asking about the Red John files but then he morphs into a master detective and back to this lost victim. Why would a normal victim ask an agent what went wrong with him? This is totally different business then trying to find out about a case. In this episode, Jane acted as if he was in training. When he walked over to the body and said now what? That is more then a ride along. Jane trashed Hannigan, then moved in on his territory. He targeted Hannigan on purpose by the elevator. He purposely plays Lisbon, pressing all her levers because she is in charge, his way in. Minnelli then gives him access to private police files, which are never, never given to anyone outside of law enforcement. So what's up with Minnelli? What is causing his motivation? Why would the director of a police organization turn over files to a civilian?
@ Rationalgal, the Kirkland's are your area of expertise. I was watching season 5 and noticed something. I think you are right about us seeing two Kirkland's. I'm almost positive that there is a distinction between the Kirkland with the hair on his face and the one that doesn't. The one with the hair on his face is more relaxed and his hair is less slicked down. He seems more relaxed, normal. The Kirkland without the facial hair seems stiffer, less relaxed and paler in skin tone. The one with the facial hair is not the one that met with Lisbon for coffee. This is the one that shook Jane's hand. But is not the one in the limo with Alexia Schultz. Now I know we have some time differences but they don't make sense later on in the series. So why is the unstable Kirkland looking for his brother? What I find more interesting is that they both claimed to work for Homeland Security. The unstable Kirkland, the one Without facial hair was in the cabin of his twin Michael. We're we seeing Michael, the one abused by his father? Were these two working together until one went off the rails? They are both still too young to be the string puller but seem to be pivotal as far as the Red John storyline goes. So according to the storyline he is still out there. So what does this mean? These twins were incerted in season 5, so there must be some importance. The question is what?
@Rationalgal, I think we have tapped into the pulse of this show. Is there anything we left out besides the ending?
I agree 100% !
Rationalgal, you're the shit, you totally get it.
Excellent, excellent summation.
I have always had an issue with the term damaged the way it is used in the series for Jane and Lisbon. They seemed to make a point of it. Mashburn and Le Roache used it with negative connotations. I can see where both of these characters may have been in unfortunate circumstances but they have done well. Lisbon, especially, does not exhibit any of the symptoms that might be found in a individual that came from an abusive environment. So in using the term damaged intensity for Lisbon, it actually shows up as the opposite in her character. Then when you look at all the other characters that have been around her, it shows her to the most normal. As much as Jane has been through, he is far better off then most of the characters he has been around as well. So I'm thinking they used that term in the manner that they did to point out labeling. Aside from creative license, these two are very normal.
