@bw&r yes, kirkland was a disappointment and a loss. even if they couldn't give him a more insidious reason to be, they should have kept him around longer. and i love lorelei and wish they hadn't killed her. it would be cool if she was still out there.
@bw&r think you're right that bertram would be the juiciest. i enjoy him the most of who's left. and i would like rj to be someone i have a history with. all the others minus stiles seem too thin in terms of development to make a satisfying rj. stiles would be a big let down. but if it's good, it don't care. @carobachik i too don't understand why people are glad rj is over. i think the premise of the show will be irreparably damaged. the shakespearean tragedy will be resolved. i'm depressed because they're cramming it all into eight weeks and after that, what? wish they could have spread it out over season six.
@bw&r hello there. my money is on bertram too. have no idea why they killed partridge first. maybe just to make the voice recognition fans crazy. problem with bertram is smith chewing him out because he didn't know how much jane knew -- not something you do to your boss or if not your boss, a serial killer. also, that he appeared to be in league with kirkland whom we know to be an rj hunter. unless he is rj fooling kirkland.agree that stiles would be stooping.
@euterpe i agree.
@carobachik agree with pretty much everything you're saying. also, seems like a cheat to make someone like smith or haffner or mcallister red john since they don't have much personality or history. the writers can imbue them with anything they want so that seems like a cop-out.they've already done u-turns with two of them. mcallister has changed from a bumbling hick sherif to a dark, vaguely threatening character. hafner went from a doctrinaire colleague that teresa hardly knows to a soft-spoken fan of teresa's, an old friend. now smith seems like a guy who could get abducted by the mossad for war crimes. so he's consistent if not interesting.
@schtempik funny. and don't forget mauve and puce. agree that it was some kind of "hail, brother." it just seemed really corny and campy; like a cartoon or i guess, a video game. i can't imagine being an actor and seeing that in a script. pass.
if kirkland has long suspected that jane is red john. why didn't he kill him along time ago? he doesn't seem to require proof.
@katempw don't know if i'm really arguing for smith. it's just they're certainly making him plugged in. i'm sure i'm wrong about everything. wonder if people who aren't consistent viewers are having a hard time keeping up with the show? they're bringing back a lot of one ep characters and quickly describing their backstories. also why does hightower always have a gun on jane? it's stupid. hasn't he proved himself over and over for her?
@katempw hi there. i have missed you! @katempw and @debz. yeah, the greeting makes my teeth hurt. and i too expected it to be something profound. the one thing we do know is that kirkland had figured out that the identifying greeting was tyger, tyger. as far as we know, jane hasn't yet. so maybe kirkland had been passing himself of as a red john-keteer hoping to meet rj? to bertram, who bought into it. not to smith, because he's rj or very close to rj. although if the rj club had known about kirkland, wouldn't they have offed him way before this? or just when it was clear he might pass on knowledge to jane? seems like alot of these guys have never met rj?
now the shallow end. simon baker looks so beautiful this season. but skinny. and we're getting a few radiant smiles. two last night. i hate lisbon's hair. don't get me wrong, the hair itself is very nice hair. it's just very hard on her face with that heavy slant of dark brown. it makes her look witchy, like kate middleton. it's the side part and the waves. looks corny. the side part helps women (most of us) look good because it compensates for their asymmetry. bring back the bangs or go for the pixie cut. something graphic to show off the fact that robin has perfect symmetry. but that's just me.
