    how come jane knows the man is gay in s01e01?

    It's never explained how he knows this, just something we're suppose to accept.

    What was written on the wall at the end of "Red John's Friends"? I couldn't read it.
    I think that was the point. The letters were

    He is man

    Either man needed to be finished or the name is Heisman.


    It is stated by either Lisbon or Jane at the end of the episode (sorry, I can't remember which one) when they are sitting on the motel room bed that "He [the man who was murdered] was trying to tell us something". I'm assuming from this that he died before he could finish writing the message. I was wondering: In the episode 2x18 Aingavite Baa, what exactly happened at the end between Rigsby and Van Pelt? Or were we supposed to be unsure? I was just a little confused by it. Thanks. xx

    Before I discovered this thread I started a new topic called "Separating intimate co-workers",where I asked a question about employment laws in the US regarding the treatment of co-workers in intimate relationships, as show in "The Mentalist". Whether what has been shown in this show, and even other shows where co-workers fall in love (like "Dexter", last season) is based on reality or simply fiction in order to add drama?


    If someone could answer my question, I would be most appreciative.

    Unfortunately, CBS does not make the show available for free viewing online. However, you can view highlight clips at the show's official website.

    I think the daughter was Charlotte Anne, and they mention during the episode that the wife's name was Angela

    Plus, I would think it would be pretty obvious. Maybe it wouldn't be if they weren't close, but every indication was that they were pretty close with each other. If he tried to pretend with her that he was, she would know.

    What ever happened to Kristina? I know the whole Red John thing and how when they found her, she was convinced that she was dead and that she was a spirit. But what happened to her after that? There hasn't been any more mention of her, and I find it hard to believe that Patrick would just forget about her like that. Did I miss something?

    No, you haven't missed anything. The plotline seems to have been dropped for now, though I'd be disappointed if it didn't come up again before this current season was over.

    The thing about his eyes is an interesting observation. Many people don't notice it. The actor (Pruitt Taylor Vince) actually has a condition called nystagamus, which causes the eyes to flick sideways. There are many different variations of the condition, you can read more about it here.


    It is clear that Vince has been given many roles were he is supposed to look a little creepy or mysterious because of his eye movement. So no, I don't think his character is going to turn out to be partially blind. I don't know how it is in the US, but at least were I come from, partially blind cops are not allowed to use firearms.

    Why do the cases seem confined to Sacremento or at least close enough for the team to go back and forth from the office in seasons 2 and 3, whereas in season 1, they seemed to be investigating murders all over California?
