In any case I really enjoyed the surreal touch of the episode and the inside in Jane's twisted past and mind. That makes clear that he's looking, not really for revenge, but redemption from what he's done and from who he was. And, again in any case, This redemption I feel it relies in the journey chasing Red John, but, above all, relies in Lisbon. The woman who Saves him and Opens his eyes (both in this episode). I think she, in particular, will represent his newfound family, and this time he will save this family from Red John, whoever he is :)
I agree with the punctual analysis. Completely. But what really intrigues me is the question intriducing this discussion: Who is Patrick Jane?
Now..maybe I'm allucinating, but when I read the question, I found that this is the real core of the story and the mistery. And the immediate answer was that Patrick Jane IS Red John. Am I the only one who sees the connection between those two? Beginning in episode 1 with the paper frog, to the resemblance of the smiley with patrick face, till the story of the journalist obsessed with the capture of his personal serial killer just to find out in the the end that he himself is that said serial killer...I could go on..In this light I can explain in a bit the two sides of Jane. He is a good man and he is also an amoral sociopath. I don't know, maybe they are hinting at it, and I'm following clues, just to find out that Red John is in fact someone strictly related to Jane (in this case I would guess a woman), or it's really him.
