SPOILER WARNING: If you still don't know who is Red John stop reading and get out immediately.
Today, we all know that tonight's episode, 6x08 Red John, was leaked on the Internet the last Friday and the identity of Red John was revealed 3 days before it was planned (I haven't seen it yet, but thanks to the spoiler trolls I have a very clear idea of what happens on it ¬¬). This is surely one of the worst things that could have happened to a series that was hiding the identity of its most popular villain for 5 years and had prepared everything for "the big day", ie today.
But, in fact, the identity of Red John was leaked no one time, but three, and althought the leaked episode was undoubtedly the worst one, the other two were organized (accide…Read more >
The mystery has come to light. Red John's true identity has been finally revealed, and no, he's not Gale Bertram, as you could think after watching the latest episode, The Great Red Dragon.
On the one hand, I feel satisfied to see Bruno Heller was honest and the list of 7 suspects proved to be real; and more than anything, that all of the suspects I discarded six months ago effectively turned out to be just red herrings, even with roles similar to those that I had theorized.
On the other hand, I can't avoid feeling some disappointed for the choice and, in some way, cheated. This is Red John, but, this is THE Red John we were waiting for?
Let's get to the point: Sheriff Thomas McAllister is Red John.
The evidence is there, and I'm not referring to…

The time is coming. The identity of Red John is getting closer to being discovered. Seven cards were put on the table and only one is the elusive Joker. One by one are being discarded and the game is almost over. But, which one is it? And what role play the others in the game?
Five months ago, after the premiere of Red John's Rules, I did a little analysis to each one of the suspects, filtering them using the clues that have been revealed throughout the series, and came to the conclusion that only 2 of them had real chances to be Red John.
Today, four episodes of the Sixth Season have been aired, and I not just think that my previous conclusion was correct, but I have a theory about what is the true role of the five discarded suspects. Intere…Read more >
In my previous blog post, Three conclusions about Red John's Rules, I explained my reasons for thinking that Red John was not in Patrick Jane's list of suspects, and why he is most probably Jane himself or CBI Ron. But, that post was written before reading this interview between Bruno Heller and TV Guide where the creator of The Mentalist stated that Red John is INDEED one of the seven suspects.
In some way, this is dissapointing. I had a whole theory to prove that Red John is Patrick Jane, CBI Ron (who now we know that is just CBI Ron ¬¬), or even in a twisted way, Lisbon; but, I will leave this for a future article, now I want to share some points of why I think the list of 7 suspects can be further reduced until find out who of them is mos…

UPDATE: I wrote this article before reading this. Please read my new theory in Who of the 7 final suspects is Red John?
Before watching the Season 5 Finale, I had some ideas about Red John's identity. Nothing new, many of you got to the same conclusions long before me. Some of these ideas were:
- Red John is NOT in Jane's list. Jane commited two big mistakes when he started to narrow down his list of people he shook hands: he only considered people he met after his family's murder, and excluded those who had met briefly and never seen again. But, Lorelei only said him that Red John and him shook hands. That's all. There is no reason to think that it ocurred after his family's murder (perfectly it could have happened earlier), and nor there is …
