    I think that this is just one big mind game by Jane. He wants Red John to think that he has been beaten. RJ might still have a friend inside the CBI so Jane has to convince everyone that he is 'losing it'. Everything in the files that were burnt would have already been memorised, and he had already got all the information out of the young girl before he hypnotised her. As for getting fired, you can see by the little smile on Jane's face that this is exactly what he wanted. He could have just quit but he wants RJ to think that he has hit rock bottom. Now RJ thinks Jane is weak and nearly defeated, he might start getting over confident and start making mistakes. Or he might think that Jane is no longer 'playing the game'. so therefore he has no more use for him. He will either stop taunting Jane (unlikely), or he will come after him and try to kill him, walking into Jane's trap as he does so. Cant wait for the next episode to find out whats going to happen.
