    I think I am beginning to understand what Red John is planning and it became clear as we see Jane not only face Styles again but actually best him while playing the same game. Here is my theory, Red John is grooming Jane to become his hunter. In essence he saw an opportunity for the perfect man to hunt him down and decided to make him. Every little action, every event is meant to make Jane better, and the fact is that Styles noticed this. As a whole Red John seems to be creating his legend, and what he wants is the perfect ending. The ending of the last season was a test, to see if Jane had the character to kill him, and obviously he passed. Now all that remains is for Jane to reach is peak and for Red John to set in motion the final game between them. A game where he might just get what he wants, no matter what. Here is a 9.5 rating to hoping that the ending will be something truly epic.
