    I think the rules say you have to wait until it airs in the US. But the rules are rarely followed in this forum, and often become birdcage fodder.

    However, I think you will find the discussion to be limited, since it's mainly you and AeneaGames. Perhaps y'all could meet for a cup of tea and some Poutine. :D

    If you wait until Sunday, only a couple days away, we can have a much fuller, richer discussion.

    I've seen it, too. But I have been patiently waiting for Sunday to discuss it. :cool:

    This is crazy! There have been 45 posts about how the episode was preempted at the last minute. Discussions going on here and in the season pass alerts forum long after there was no use for them, and NOW, that the episode was actually shown, there is nothing--no discussion--NOT A SINGLE POST.

    This group confuses me greatly some times.:confused:

    Give it time. It hasn't even been 12 hours yet. I doubt many people stayed up late to watch live, much less after it recorded.
    I know I won't be watching it 'til later this evening.

    Well, I found the entire episode needlessly tedious and drawn out with no real resolution. I'm just about to dump the SP and wash my hands of it all.

    Your confusion has less to do with the group and more to do with yourself.

    I note that Church AV Guy did not post anything about the episode itself. Isn't there a bible verse about that? Something about sin and stones?

    Anyway, I am not sure where to post now. There is a season thread for this season. This episode thread is now wrong, since it has "OAD 2013-11-03" in the subject. I am leaning towards posting in the season thread.

    I saw the previous episode but held commment until it aired in more places.

    Since all they did was gather the usual suspects into one room and then "something happened", they could have summarized the entire episode in the "last week on The Mentalist" and skipped showing it altogether.

    It came across as trying to milk the lead up to exposing Red John over as many weeks as possible without really showing anything in-between.

    At least they didn't try to do a whole season on "what happens Jane's old house"

    I agree that in spite of the explosion, nothing much happened except to narrow the suspect pool down to those three.
    (Which IIRC, were the same three we saw meeting at CBI.)


    Of course, I've come to realize that Jane is totally wrong and Red John is obviously Van Pelt.

    The only interesting part (other than narrowing the pool) is that the three had the same tattoo? Are those guys all part of the Tyger, tyger conspiracy? If so, are they morons to have something as obvious as that tattoo to identify themselves?

    Sad that I care more about the tattoo than about who Red John is.

    LOL

    I actually didn't check the spoiler until seeing the episode. Good one.

    Add me to the list of those who were underwhelmed by the episode.

    I expected more.

    Me, too. The whole RJ thing is just silly now. They've milked this way too long.

    So RJ is this ruthless, mastermind killer, but he also has a day job catching bad guys, helping people and possibly running a sheriff/police department? Red John spends hours a week doing paperwork? Please...

    That's my problem with the way all the Red john stuff has been handled. I don't think any of the suspects make a satisfying Red John.

    Except maybe for Stiles. I am sure he had flunkies doing all his routine chores.

    Yeah - I agree. Stiles is the only one of the 5 who are left who is smart enough to be Red John. It also helps that he's not a LEO. I think Stiles is one of the best characters on the show. No dots - but maybe there's still a chance that he's the guy.
