*SPOILER ALERT* Who Is Red John?

redjnRed John on The Mentalist, has been revealed –

DO NOT READ ON IF YOU DON”T WANT TO KNOW!

Sheriff Tom McAllister, whose death had been presumed/faked in an explosion at Jane’s house in the last episode, is the brutal killer. There are many clues to this in the season – but it also leaves a lot of buts and what if’s!

In the chapel of the cemetery where Jane’s (Simon Baker) wife and daughter are buried, he is confronted by the serial killer and chases him, eventually strangling McAllister to death. Patrick Jane then leaves a message for Lisbon saying that he is okay and will miss her, before he flees. But where?

With his final breaths, McAllister claimed that he was an actual psychic and used those skills to divine Jane’s list of 7 suspects. But was that but a final bit of posing? Could RJ instead have had a mole inside Jane’s innermost circle? The series boss, Bruno Heller said that, for now, he will leave “that thread dangling.”

Next week’s episode in the USA will jump ahead two years.
