I don't think Kirkland is Red John or an accomplice. The episode Red Barn suggested that Red John is probably in his 50s or early 60s (unless of course this Red John is a copycat of the original "Red Barn" one which could open up a wide range of suspects) and to me sometimes Red John's voice sounds like Patrick Jane's in the limo at the end of season 4. I think Kirkland has reason to believe that Red John's influence may even reach the high echelons of government and that he is a threat to national security. I think he may have some idea of who Red John is and may believe he is connected in some way to Patrick Jane and has been tracking the investigation since Jane joined the CBI. I think he may even be killed by Red John by the end of this season. The members of the poker games Lisbon has been attending however, i think one of them is yet another Red John minion. They do need to make a significant red john reveal this season to maintain interest and to move the plot along.

Is It just me or is anyone else getting the vibe that Kevin Corrigan a.k.a. Robert Kirkland on The Mentalist is Red John?? I don't remember them shaking hands but i do feel a resemblance in the voice.

They shake hands in the end of episode 7 of this season.

They aren't going to catch Red John in the 16th episode. If it's going to happen it will be in the finale. People had to know that before they watched this episode.

I know what you mean, but I think people were just hoping for some kind of progression - a clue, some new (significant) information about RJ to be uncovered, or something. I doubt many people were expecting his identity to be revealed in this ep, let alone for him to be caught.

Honestly, they've built up Red John way too much. There's no real way to stop him. It was one thing if it was just Red John and a couple of assistants (one of which in the government). But they explicitly shown us HOW man assistants now? It's kind of insane. How do you stop an army of psychos? I mean, we're up to over a dozen confirmed assistants and a few assumed assistants... and that's just what we KNOW about. They went a bit overboard with it.

I have to say, for the first time in a while... a show fooled me. I imagined that Emmanuel Vaugier (the cute brunette home leader) would be the episode's bad guy. As she's known for a lot of TV work but didn't have THAT much to do / say in this episode. And it turns out it was the other guy. Also, my 2 favorite actresses named Emmanuel on the same episode? Awesome sauce

whoever hasn't figured out the homeland security guy is working for Red John should just not watch the show. After he stopped Jane from getting in the ambulance with the guy that knew Red Johns identity the homeland guy is my most hated character on the show.

Well, on one hand... they're laying it thick. REALLY thick. So there becomes the question... is it all a red herring? Considering how mysterious they're being with the whole Red John thing in general... laying it on THAT thick is a bit odd. BUT... all things considered, I always assumed Lisbon's boss was either Red John or worked for him, and both he and Homeland Security guy appear to be buddy-buddy.

And now they have killed off the only part of the "Red John" storyline they was even vaguely interesting. :(

Frankly, this show blows without Red John. If they have killed another lead into that then ugh.., they should just throw him in and pull off a few interesting episodes and be done with it. These cop shows without story lines suck.
