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.
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?
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!
How can you say this guy was nothing, when he was capable of all of this? How the F**k do you just dismiss this, how? Here's how, I KNEW WHAT EVER THE TRUTH LOOKED LIKE, THE OPPOSITE MUST BE TRUE. ARE YOU F**KING kidding me? What then does this imply? It implies this; if it is opposite of what was going on, it means Jane and Red John are as stupid as can be! SO SENSE THIS IS NOT TRUE, AN EXPLANATION IS NEEDED. YOU CAN'T REDUDED RED JOHN TO NOTHING WITHOUT REDUCING JANE TO THE SAME THING. IT WOULD MEAN THAT JANE CHASED DOWN AND KILLED A MAN (S) OUT OF SHEER REVENGE AND ARROGANCE. WHERE THE HELL IS THE REDEMPTION IN THAT?
