When can we ever be sure it is the real red john, now that we know that Jane will believe anyone that says they did it.
Jane was under extreme duress. The Red John impersonator very deliberately pressed all of Janes well-controled buttons, causing him to completely lose it. remember, Jane hates guns and never carries one. This was most certainly an unusual situation. Jane really thought this guy was Red John until he was told the gun and the phone were missing from the crime scene. At that moment, he realized that Red John had played both him, and the impersonator. Red John WANTED Jane to spend life in prision, or eve be executed.
I seriously doubt that Jane would have gone to such lengths to hypnotize the jury if he really had killed Red John. He knew he would have to do the time, but once he realized that he had been duped, and that Red John was still out there, he HAD to get free, to continue the hunt. It became an imperitive for him. He could not have done it from a prison cell.
The impersonator had very specific information that only Red John would have known, and he said it in a way to provoke Jane. The only source for this information was Red John himself, so if he wasn't Red John, then he must still be out there.
You never know what a California jury will do.
