    Dots are for flunkies.

    This is why I think it's Van Pelt.

    Jane should perform a full body tattoo search on Van Pelt, just to be sure.

    If it is Van Pelt I will vow to never watch another non-sports program on CBS ever again. Or at least for the next month.

    But surely he'd just need to check the shoulder? :confused:

    I wonder if Jane has red dots on his shoulder. That would be a turn up for the books

    Why run the risk that she has her tattos somewhere else? Better be thorough. :D

    I wonder if Reede Smith saying he's not good with heights was a red herring, or a subtle hint at him possibly being RJ ... agree though that none of the suspects are truly qualified, aside from Styles.

    Maybe you guys have it right. Stiles is RJ and everyone with dots is a flunkie. Jane will realize that now that there are multiple people with dots.

    At least that's the way it SHOULD be.

    I just watched this for the second time. Thought I might pick up on something new!!?? Saw it by magical means last week and OTA this week.

    Did anyone else notice that the blood sacrifice ceremony in this show was almost identical to the ceremony in the latest episode of Witches of East End. I was wondering if they had a cup of blood left over ... or, if they shared the same producers. I see they don't have producers in common ... so, that leaves the whole leftover blood thing ...

    I never even thought of Van Pelt as "Red John". The more I think about it, though, the more it seems possible ...

    Oh, I finally got a solution to football messing with the show lineups on Sunday. I record a block from 7:30 PM to 1:00 AM. Get all the shows AND the news. My Tivo keeps warning me about space, though, and I don't really save anything very long.

    Has anyone considered the possibility that there is no single red John, but the remaining suspects all collectively function together as Red John? It would make for a lame ending.

    Personally, I don't mind if red John turns out to be a LEO. It explains some of his resources and his ability to not be captured. It explains how his minions have previously infiltrated law enforcement. Red John isn't busy serial killing 24/7. He does have time to hold down a real job.

    Jane wild still be my first choice for red John. Pity the producers have ruled it out.

    That's what I thought as well - all of them are 'RJ' - thus all-knowing and seemingly everywhere.
    However, I just don't see how any of them (Stiles excluded) would inspire such fanatical, nearly mythical loyalty from the followers, while at the same time have a real job ... really not liking this ...

    I like it even more if they are all independently RJ, not knowing who else is being RJ as well.

    Ha, Ha. Good one...

    I'm still not convinced that Brett Partridge is dead. Yeah, Lisbon had some of his blood on her, but there has never been a definitive statement that his body was ever recovered from the crime scene. THAT would not be RJs modus operandi. Historically, he leaves the bodies, doesn't he? He was my first choice, and until I hear that they have the body, is my odds-on favorite.

    My second and third choices were eliminated this week (if eliminated is correct) so I am at a loss, since from what WE have seen, Bertram, McAllister, and Smith don't seem to have the charisma to be RJ. smith seems too young to have put the symbol at that barn those many years ago.

    Only my second choice, Stiles, seems to be able to have the ability to influence vast numbers of people with complete devotion. Malcolm McDowell is a really good actor, and he at least COULD pull off the change in character necessary to go from Visualize leader, to cold blooded killer. Of course, Xander Berkeley can be a cold blooded killer, manipulator, too (see him in Nikita).

    I agree that the three dots sound like a marking for JR minions, rather than the man himself.

    If it's Van Pelt, I'll be as unhappy as I was over the Lost ending. I think she and Rigsby are going to be killed in the final RJ unmasking process which will provide Jane the motivation to go after the Tiger, Tiger* conspiracy.

    * The closed captioning spells it Tiger every time, not Tyger, so it matters not how Blake spelled it, if the show is spelling it Tiger, then I am too.

    The cabal theory is a solid possibility, but it's unsatisfactory to have the "Mastermind" be a committee. The Bond villains are all individuals, after all.

    A good point. I still like Partridge because he dates all the way back to the pilot episode. He also has a creepy vibe to him that I think the others lack.

    I had assumed the Van Pelt theory was meant to be a joke. Are people actually taking it seriously?

    The Cho theory is very serious...

    Three suspects with three dots each. They are collectively RJ.

    I really just want it to be over finally.
