    How much of what ends up in closed captioning is actually specified by the showrunners?

    Isn't captioning farmed out to third-party vendors? Do they get a real script to work from or do they just listen to the show?

    Is it possible that the captioning is spelled "tiger" only because the captioner doesn't know his Blake? :)

    They are members of a cult called the Ellipses.

    Does anyone know how soon this Red John business will be over? Are they going to draw it out to the end of the season?

    It's starting to become tiresome. There's no suspense; there's just waiting for it to get over.

    No, I read that they will resolve it during the season, not drag it out.

    It SHOULD have ended with Bradley Whitford. :mad:

    Given the episode titles I really hope it ends 11/24.

    This. I don't get it. Do the writers/producers think we are all going to stop watching once Red John is dead?

    Oh? Who says Van Pelt can't be Red John?
    She's in Law Enforcement and has access to the Red John investigation.
    She didn't join the team until after Jane showed up.

    And she has RED HAIR!

    And as for her having devoted followers, well, LOOK AT HER!
    Wouldn't you do anything for her?

    So the whole bit with one of RJ's minions seducing Van Pelt and getting engaged to her and then trying to kill her was just a huge long con by RJ/VP? :)

    Exactly!

    Officially, I'm leaning towards the "Partridge is not dead" theory but I have a sneaking suspicion that the whole Red John reveal and explanation will make as much sense as the Van Pelt theory.

    As long as it isn't the "Jane has multiple personality disorder and is himself Red John," I can handle almost anything else. HEY! We never saw Jane's shoulder to see if HE has the tattoo! :eek:

    Makes sense that they would finish by 11/24. They are dragging it out for November sweeps.

    YES, make this go away already. We started watching this show for the crimes that were solved. It has focused on Red John for much too long, and we just don't care much any more. I think if this goes on much longer, I will remove my SP when it is over.

    Considering that this is the last season, you won't be missing out on much.

    Who said it was the last season? Or are you just projecting?

    There are people who have assumed this is the last season, for no good reason.

    I assume they are misunderstanding the news about
    the end of the Red John saga, but we know the show will continue beyond that since that is coming in the next few weeks and we still have the whole rest of the season afterward.

    To be fair, the ratings for this season aren't very good so far.
    But the Sunday post football slot has been bad for CBS for a while now.

    Oh, I know the ratings aren't great. Actually, early on I had assumed this was the last season. But when something is stated as a fact that I wasn't aware of, I wanted to get clarification if it was indeed an actual fact.
