Recap

-Six months after Jane leaves the CBI, he meets Lorelei a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas.  She bails him out after he is arrested for fraud and the two sleep together.

-The next morning Lorelei tells Jane that Red John sent her. He wants to offer Jane a new life as his disciple but it comes at a price. He has to kill Agent Lisbon and bring Red John her body as a gift.

-Jane finds Lisbon and tells him this has all been a long term con to take down Red John. She's furious for being kept in the dark and made to worry about Jane but she agrees to help.

-Jane enters the CBI and appears to kill both Rigsby and Lisbon and takes her body.  The team then hides Rigsby and Lisbon and waits for Red John to call.

-Agent Darcy grows suspicious and figures out the body in the morgue is not Rigsby. As Jane approaches a limo that may hold Red John, Darcy arrests the rest of the CBI team before they can swoop in.

-Red John taunts Patrick from the back of the limo. Then he lets him go telling Lorelei and his driver to remove two of Jane's fingers.  Before that can happen the CBI and FBI arrive.

-The limo flees but the teams open fire and stop it.  The driver is dead. Lorelei is alive and in the back seat is Agent Wainwright,  dead. He was duct taped and gagged with a cell phone strapped to him through which Red John had talked to Jane.

-Back at the CBI, Jane swears to Lorelei that he will break her and she will tell him everything she knows about Red John.

GOD I want the twist at the end of the series to be Lisbon is red john or a disciple or something. @ Cote; There was no random CBI coworker who was dead, the body was the body of the man that blew his own head off infront of the mexican men.

to knitnoodles, I ask have you been watching any of the previous episodes or just rewriting the show. Go back all 4 seasons and get it. Bertram never said the Tiger quote but dud mention another quote from that same poet. Jane fires shots in Lisbon's office but Rigsby's body i found in the middle of the wardroom. We all knew it was a con to lure RJ, and Wainright was already dead in the car. The tall man with buzz was Oscar's bodyguard and not the man in the limo. Wainright was already there and dead with that cell phone transmitting RJ's conversation, he would never have gotten near Patrick in c ase that it was all a ruse. We have seen that his people are programed cruel and ready to die for him and we will probably find Lorelei dead very soon in season 5.

I can't believe nobody commented on Jane's declaration to Lisbon: "Good luck Teresa. Love you."! The fact that later on Lisbon asks about this and Jane is deflecting might mean that Janes feelings for Lisbon are deeper than just plain friendship...:D Kept replaying the moment over and over again since...:))

So Darcy is the RJ mole in the FBI, whom RJ used to get rid of Wainwright after using him to impersonate RJ (I assume there was a hologram happening as well as the cell-phone voice? as the shadowy figure we saw from the back seat was the tall bald man in last week's episode behind and to the left of Lisbon watching Wainwright freak out). I am surprised Lisbon didn't put together that Darcy is an RJ operative, but then she didn't get the Tiger Tiger quote by Bertram at the end of last season, who clearly killed the security guard after he had him steal the gun off the body of the guy Jane killed.
RJ is the tall bald guy who was watching in the stripclub from behind Jane and Lorelei when Oscar accused Jane of being a con man and demanded his money back. RJ joined Oscar in the chase that led Jane into the alley. It was he who appeared to be in the back of the limo, where Wainwright really was.
I suspect RJ and PJ (!) are related, both to Brett Styles. And RJ may in fact be Bertram (same body size), in disguise.

I'm from Spain...just watched it online.I loved the episode, it has a different flavour than the rest, maybe being in las Vegas and Jane not being a consultant per se, I don't know.However I think it's great that at last they open a possibility to speak to someone close to Red John that doesn't end up getting killed at the end of the episode.It proves a couple of points, one: red john is a man, and by that I mean ONE man and not a kind web of different killers and shady people like some thought.two: Red John can be fooled and is willing to as it seems he's getting fed up of Jane chasing him around. Personally there are a few things I think are connected.Red John has friends at every level of society but mainly involve money and power and it seems he has control over them as you would expect from an organization like Visualize.Few people have challenged Jane in a high level, Bret Stiles from visualize, Red John and the chick, that escaped prison each of them loose ends to the story (BTW all money, power, etc...).They obviously are connected to Jane.Stiles owes Jane, the chick tried to seduce him and escaped and Red John wants to be his "friend"...and finally he has this new girl who I think is going to play a very important roll next season, I think the way Jane will reach to her will be by that lover angle, try to get her to fall in love, etc...We'll see!...
