  • under whelmed.

    6 years leading up to this... really? I'm so under whelmed.
  • Red John

    The payoff of 6 seasons did not live up to the hype, but this was still compelling TV that had me on the edge of my seat. Disappointing who Red John was, but still the moment Jane killed him was the kind of rare, edgy thing not too often seen on CBS.
  • Doesn't add together.

    Something just doesn't seem right about this episode or the last few. It makes me wonder if the Sheriff isn't just another decoy. The climax to him wasn't there and Bertram wasn't convincing as Red John. All of the clues to who Red John could be don't all seem to fit. The little girl Patrick met in the cemetery a couple seasons ago (maybe) said the man she met, talked funny, Red John always seemed to be a ruthless man, one who likes to show off his skill, He has a big ego. So why would he play dumb, The Sheriif and many of the other suspects seem that way. But only a couple have real accents. All of them can whistle it seems. I don't know, something just doesn't seem to add up here.moreless
  • This man is RJ ?

    It's Joke ?
  • Finally! After all this time

    We get to see who red john is and it turns out to be the sheriff, nice.

    It was sad to see him limp run from jane in the cemetery, for a little bit I felt sorry for him.

    But I like him to be red john better than that other guy, I could tell something just wasn't right about that.

    • Agent Abbott: (referring to Jane) So where is he?
      Lisbon: I don't know.
      Agent Abbott: I think you do.
      Lisbon: I can't help what you think.
      Agent Abbott: I think your boyfriend is colluding with a dangerous fugitive. I think he is up to his neck in this Blake Association craziness, and probably you are, too.
      Lisbon: I'm not. He's not. Jane can't help who calls him, and he's not my boyfriend.
      Agent Abbott: It's a damn shame, Teresa. By all accounts, you were a good cop.
      Lisbon: I still am.
