    It should be obvious to all, the RJ storyline goes as far as the series goes... What I hope though, that next season Jane gets the upper hand and will have actual leads, starts to hunt down RJ, his followers and stops chasing his own tail.

    I think the show will go on for 3 or 4 more seasons, maybe even more; it'll reach season 7 for sure, and if it goes well, probably season 8 and maybe a 9th season.

    And to tell you guys the truth, I don't think the Red John story will end before the show itself ends.

    Not sure it'll get past season 6...It already looks poorly patched together after episode 1 of Season 5...Not every series needs to go on for 7-9 seasons - they eventually run their course and it'd be a much better show if the writers/creators weren't hellbent on squeezing out as many seasons as possible, just for $$

    Watch the first few seasons, these last 2 have paled in comparison

    The Red John storyline won't be resolved (if at all) before the show ends. Though I sincerely hope we get to see some progress (real one I mean) this season since in my opinion the quality of the show has suffered a little. Sure we have always great episodes and weaker ones in a season, but there seem to be more and more weaker ones. Here's the hoping the quality improves again

    Let the cancellation watch begin...A pregnant Righetti sitting at her desk for several episodes had to be one of the worst ideas from the writers - it fooled no one...It's been amateur hour for 2 seasons now, what happened to this show?

    I think that the Mentalist will go on for 6 seasons and on the last episode Red John will be revealed.

    I think RJ identity should be revealed on season 5 finale, but with Jane not been able to prove it, and a 6° season trying to get him.

    What do you mean chasing his own tail?
