I wonder if they will persue this story line, having Lisbon perhaps "quietly" investigate Jane...
While unlikley, the writers could easily make Jane the (Schizophrenic) RJ Killer, actually killed his own family, not even knowing what his "Jekyl" is doing, & likwise his 'Jekyl" torments Jane.. ...
Jane's powers of hypnotizm, disgiuise, msguiding ect are as plausible at recruiting others to do his bidding as anyone on that list, That Carny Friend insisted RJ had "powers", & recruits may not even know the "real" RJ, as the guy Jane shot wasn't RJ ... Not saying I believe this, or would like this ending of the show ... it's just "possible" that's all ....

That would suck and be the worst ending to a series since "Medium".

Wow, shows how much I've been paying attention.

Since the pilot? I honestly don't remember this guy at all.

Neither do I, the first time I noticed him was this episode.

So. Dexter now leads a cult. If this is the case, then I sure hope they just don't dump that on us. There has to be some very compelling, supporting information on how he is a CSI by day and a cult leader by night. Details. When and where they meet. What is done to thoroughly ensure the loyalty that has been demonstrated. What's in it for someone who submits to RJ's authority. Is it merely that they understand that RJ will extract his price should he even suspect someone isn't loyal?

What I think is going to bother me about this, no matter who it ends up being, is just how many poor sick twisted bastards are there in the world, that RJ can find them and convince them to happily commit acts of mayhem that they know will result in their death or at least incarceration. Are there really that many sickos in the writers world?

Scary place.

In the pilot Jane goaded Partridge into slugging him. Jane then used that to pressure CBI to let him work with them on the RJ case. So, as you can see, if Bruno had RJ planned from the beginning, this would be perfect.

Yes. Season 2 Ep 23. Red Sky in the Morning. Jane was wrapped up and about to be sacrificed to RJ by RJ wannabes. RJ shows up, kills the riffraff and says some words to Jane, then leaves. For me, it was a matter of RJ letting Jane know that only he will kill Jane when he wants to. If Jane was RJ, then that episode would have had to of been a Fight Club redeux. A lot of episodes lately have pushed the image of Jane being overly cautious when sh*t comes down. It could be a way of showing how Jane has two sides with the other being the violent RJ, but I don't think so.

RJ says, the first verse of Blake's The Tiger:

TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

I bet Partridge isn't dead. It was a set-up by him.

Not a set-up by him if you watched the previews...
post #432 of 658
I'm putting this show in the same category I put "Falling Skies", I only watch because I've invested too much time in it. I really don't care who RJ is at this point, expose him and get it over with and move on to a more interesting plot line. I know that a number of characters are departing this season, shake up the show and get some life back into it or let it end.

Nope. I don't watch the previews.
post #434 of 658
I'm sure Partridge is dead, his last words were the Tiger Tiger poem (again)

That blood on Lisbon's face is Partridge's for sure

I'm still think is the CIA guy, but it would be very obvious, he killed a minion already, unless he's also a minion and RJ is the CBI director
post #435 of 658
I'm beginning to think Red John is the one-armed man and not be revealed in the final episode. But I'm hoping I'm wrong!
post #436 of 658
I'm still loving this show after all these years and will continue to do so because of all the likable characters. I admit I was tired of the Red John storyline a couple years ago because there seemed to be no discernible end game. But now that they are focusing on revealing the identity of Red John I'm very much enjoying where it is going.

I'm glad it won't end up being Partridge because I know I wasn't alone when he was listed as one of the suspects and I said "Who the hell is that?"

I was disappointed Red John didn't kill Partridge and have his body placed in a pear tree.

I now envision five weeks of playing "there can be only one" leaving RJ as the last man standing, until he is taken down by Jane and Lisbon.

Probably play it out through February sweeps.

Too easy. I expect a "Ten Little Indians" ending. One of the "dead" suspects will turn out not to be dead, but be RJ. If you never read or saw "Ten Little Indians," sorry for the spoiler.

Since when have assumptions or speculations become "spoilers?" Actually, I think the seven suspects will all turn out to be "red" herrings and Red John will turn out to be the illegitimate son of Red Buttons. Sorry for the spoiler. smile.gif

Interesting question. All I'll say is that very often "speculations" around here (AVS) have a way of being eerily "correct" ... almost like the speculator had detailed knowledge of future plot lines. wink.gif

Then again, sometimes it really is just a lucky guess ... it's hard to tell the difference. smile.gif
post #446 of 658
But if the list of dead RJ suspects goes backwards, say Partridge was last in the list and first to die, that leads to Stiles being RJ...

I bet $.02 on it

I think he was apologizing for spoiling "Ten Little Indians" which is so old, I don't think it can possibly count any longer. smile.gif

RJ must have access to Jane's space in CBI to have found his list of suspects. He didn't read Jane's mind, so he had to have access to his research. That would tend to implicate anyone who has building access, BUT RJ has so many minions, he could have simply have one of those access the research, so, back to the list.

I have always thought it would be an interesting idea if RJ was the guy who started Visualize, who Stiles said was killed in a car crash. He isn't on the list though.
post #448 of 658
I agree with you. I saw the movie 68 years ago. wink.gif
post #449 of 658
I think I read the RJ would be solved by December, odds are November sweeps. Can't happen soon enough.

Of course I was referring to "Ten Little Indians." Sorry if I was too subtle.
